      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 .

Aces In The Hole

A few of my friends and I are going to be staying at Eagle's Nest for a week. It is located in Black Bay. My question is, are there any bars or places around that area to hang out and chat with the female locals? We don't want to drive too far, so we are looking for a place within a 1 mile radius or so. Thanks for any advice! ( Not a word MuskieJunkie) grin.gif

By water or road?

Nothing within a mile by road that I know of. The Landing on Hwy. 24 is the closest as far as I remember. Not sure how far it is, but would guess it to be less than 10 miles.

Maybe the locals will chime in.

When are you going to be up? We'll be up the first week of June at Life of Riley Resort on Norwegian Bay. We're coming up from Missouri.

Road or water, it doesn't matter. We just don't want to be driving 20 miles to go somewhere.

We will be up there MAy 26th to June 2nd.

The closest spot by any means of travel to where you'll be located is The Landing. Be careful about boating to the bar and trying to find your way back in the dark. A lack of moonlight will make navigation very difficult, especially if you are new to the route.

The landing is the closest spot, but it's waay more than a mile - probably 10. If you do drive, be extremely careful. There is a sharp corner near the area where the road turns to gravel. I'm in the area just a few weeks and weekends a year, and I bet I've seen 7-8 cars wrapped around trees in that vicintity in the past 5 years! Based on the skid marks they were usually coming from the direction of the landing.

Sounds like taking the boat will be safer. I'll have my GPS with, so I'll be leaving a trail where ever we go, so that we won't get lost. Thanks for the info fellas! cool.gif

By water the Landing is probably closer, but by no means an easy trip at night if you are unfamilier with the lake. By road, Wolf Bay Lodge is not that far.

The landing is closest, but the "old muni" might be better for the spawning. Or maybe harvest moon. (turn right off 24 like you were going to the transfer station if southbound)

Not that I know.

This "Old Muni" you speak of. Is it hard to find? How far away for The Landing is it? Do you have better directions to it? wink.gif

The Muni is on Main Street in Cook.

It's the old municipal bar. Look at the map of Cook for directions. It's essentially where you turn off of Hwy 53 and get onto Hwy 24 heading up to Vermilion. It's about 2-3 times as far of a drive as the Landing.

Yes it is on the main drag of cook, just up from the Montana Cafe and across from the laundromat. River Street? It is about 6 or 7 miles from the landing.

Map of cook?

      Lots of birds kept spots open and the snow covered them now. It’s dangerous if you just rush out. Take your time if you are going to Ann lake or Lori or any in that area.  This my stomping grounds and there only one lake I would fish in the area

      Fished from 0815-1230 today out from McKinley out to 26 FOW. Found about 10.75 inches good ice with snow cover varying from 2 inches up to close to a foot in the soft drifts but still not too bad for hiking while dragging the flip over. Had decent action from 0830-0930 bringing up 8 walleyes less than 12 inches long, a 12 inch perch and 2 tullibees all released. About 50-50 on set line vs glow jigging spoon both with chubs. Not sure why I couldn't connect on better quality fish. Still a nice morning with the snow lightly falling and peaks of sun. Good running into you, Cliff! Hopefully we'll cross paths again this winter.

      I may make it over to Elysian, Francis, or Tetonka this Saturday. Depends what I find on the Mississippi tomorrow afternoon. From what I have heard the ice on the backwaters around Winona and La Crosse may actually be in better shape than that around Waseca and Faribault, which is kind of odd for early ice. Usually the south-central MN lakes freeze up just a bit quicker.
    • JIvers
      I'd be surprised if there were much good ice on Bartlett this weekend--that deep water with a bit of current takes a while to freeze--but I may go out and take a look anyway tomorrow when I am up in the area getting my first ice fix of the year in. Anyone got any early ice reports for the Mississippi backwaters around Winona and Lacrosse? I'll be adding mine tomorrow night.
