      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Just wondering if anyone knows if Butch and Nev's resort on Geneva has a website? I have looked here on the internet but with no luck. I tried calling several times but there was no answer. Anyone know if they are still open?

I doubt that they have a web site. In fact, I don't know if they are still operating as a resort. I know that they are trying to sell the property. Hoping to entice someone who wants to tear it all down and build a few townhomes, from what I understand.

Lots of other resorts in the area, though!

Thanks Woodland,

I know there are a ton of resorts in the area, however I used to go there with my mom and dad as a kid every year. As I got older I stopped going up there with them cuz (God forgive me crazy.gif) I wasn't a big fisherman at the time.

Now that I got hitched I was hoping to get back up there with the new wife.

Hey Hermy,

I think Butch and Nevs is like a lot of the older resorts that found themselves in a situation where they had some cabins that were in deserate need of updating, on land that was worth more as a piece of real estate, than they could ever make operating as a resort with old cabins. So they are trying to cash in.

We hear the story each summer, people that have great childhood memories of vacationing at resorts, that are now townhomes, associations or "private compounds". They are now starting the same traditions with thier own families, after realizing how valuable a week at the lake can be.

Make sure you do your "homework", when looking for a place to stay!

Good Luck!

Steve

Hermy, why don't you take a look at Woodland resort on Miltona. They are FM sponcors and Miltona is a great muti-species lake.

Hey Woodland,

I see a lot of people talking about your resort on Miltona. My parents just bought a place on Miltona and I'm kinda new to the area, but I was wondering exactly where your resort is? Thanks. By the way, we were out there on Sunday - Tuesday and fishing was pretty good.

KK,

Woodland is on the east side of Miltona, about 1/2 mile north of the golf course. We have the tan colored units.

Where is your parents place? Miltona can be such a fun lake to fish, and the water is super clean. Its nice to let the kids play at the beach or drag them through the water on a tube and not have to worry about swimmers itch, alge, etc.

By the way, fishing was good last weekend, for you? Mostly targeting walleye, or did you find the slabs?

Stop by and say hi sometime!

My parents place is in the Sandy Beach area on East Sandy Beach. We targeted the slabs in the morning and afternoon and then Walleyes during the twilight time. Are the crappies just starting to move in or are they on the way out?

      Pearl Lake has been lights out for crappies in that 10+ inch range this year, finally,  find 13-16 fow and then drill holes until you see suspended fish. When you find them I like a 1/10oz. Swedish pimple (silver/glow) with 2 waxies, keep it above the fish and they’ll come up for it.

      I heard reports Friday of 3-5 inches out of Bayport.

      I'm on vacation until January 2nd if anyone wants to meet up and go fishing let me know I've got all my own gear 95% of the time I fish alone. Willing to drive anywhere or help with gas or what ever. Going to try a local lake in the morning for some eyes and panfish unless someone has any other suggestions. Mostly a CPR guy but it's also nice to occasionally bring some home for the family.

      Still pheasant hunting and still seeing lots of birds!  Went out an afternoon this past week and saw about 75 in 2.5 hours.  Went home with my 3 roosters.  Everything is froze good now so its easy walking and there's fresh snow.

      Welcome to FM, Some lakes near you that are good and have some quality  are Ann,Knife and Fish to the East and the Briggs chain to the West.  Look for green vegetation or mud basin bug hatches for action. 
    • monstermoose78
      Sure helps to find them when you have some of the top panfish anglers around helping

      Good fish Rick way to find some quality fish in a highly pressured area. Takes skill to be able to accomplish that. Maybe run into you one of these days out there
    • IceHawk
      Nice fish guys looked like a good time was had . That lake has some quality for sure. Figured you guys would dial them in.
    • Jory
      Not new to ice fishing but I can't seem to find the fish anymore around my neck of the woods in foley mn. so if anyone could give great insight of lakes times and maybe hints of baits and area of the lake would be awesome.
