      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 .

The last report I got from the park in Warroad is that

they will NOT have their construction complete by the

date of our planned day on LOW. Walleye Jon was nice

enough to have us all to this spot in the campground

that he assures me will do the job nicely.

So, our next step is to find out who is planning to

attend, what there needs are and what they can bring.

Jeff Beckwith, from Scenic Tackle is bringing his fish

cookers again (and oil, I think). I am bringing something

but my wife hasnt told me what it is yet.

We need.....Paper plates, cups, utinsils, paper towels,

catsup, salt&pepper, tartar sauce, chips, pickles a few

salads, beans, potatos(Jeff can deep fry tator tots, ummm)

, some deserts and a few big garbage bags.

I will also bring some name tags so that It will be easy to

remember ah ummmm errrr names of fellow FMers.

Lets call the roll here and lets get ready for a fun day

on the water and in the campground June 9th

I got the catsup, tarter sauce, and garbage bags covered. You guys should throw one of those cheap plastic cutting boards in with your fishing stuff when you're getting ready. The temporary fish cleaning area is only a couple painted picnic tables, so they'll help in keeping the fillets from getting too dirty.

Fish should be congregating in shallow real soon. So far minnows have been the ticket both on jigs and spinners. Crawlers and leeches should work fine by then though. Throwing a slip bobber out will be another choice if you find a good school around some weeds, and you can pretty much always catch fish pulling cranks. If that's you're game plan, make sure you have a few that run real shallow, like 2-5 feet. If you haven't put new line on in a while, you'll want to do that too. The fish really pull hard when they're in close, and there are a lot of 20 plusses being caught on regular basis. Look forward to seeing everyone, and have a safe trip.

I am planning on making it. The only thing that will change it is if the contractor I am working with decides to work Sat. But I don't think that will happen. My dad will be coming along and I might possible have 1 more. I will be bringing something but not sure yet as to what.

I hope I can't make it. June 9th is the final day for the FLW tournament on Devils Lake I'm fishing, so hopefully I'm in the top ten. But with my luck this year, there might be a chance I'll get to the get-together

I talked it over with my mom(home ecom. teacher) this weekend she said she would send a salad or two with my dad for the weekend and I sure could pick up a couple bags of tater tots no problem there so put me down for that. I can't wait for this weekend I have been really looking foward to it.

Walleyejon you better leave some fish in the lake for me grin.gif.

There will be one or two left for ya Jason, but you better let your dad catch them.

BKB, I assume you're bringing your own boat? Just wondering if you have a radio so I can call when I get up there Friday. If so, who should I put a shout out for? Most everyone is on Ch 6.

Since no one has said much about the timing of this shindig, I thought I would throw this out there.....Meet at the landing and launch boats between 7:30 and 8 am. The little twist I was thinking of would be to keep in touch on the radio (someone pick a channel besides 6) and head back in when we figure we have enough fish for frying, or one/two o'clock whichever is later. If we still need more fish, we stay out, if we have enough, we head in, clean them up, and chow down. That way we could be back out on the water for the afternoon/evening bite, with full bellys and empty live-wells. Come back in around eightish maybe?Maybe fry a few more fish, and sit around the campfire at my camper one-upping each other with fishing stories. If we have to stay out past two due to lack of fish, then we can just stay out until around 6 or 7pm like we've done in the past. Anyone have any opinions on doing it this way?

Kaz: I believe you're fishing the East Side? Would eightish work for you guys for dinner?

If anyone could bring a couple chunks of wood for the fire,it would be greatly appreciated.

Bear: This is a F/M group, and since your a member, we'd like you to attend. We all would like to meet those who post here, so if your near Warroad Saturday morning around 7am to 8am, meet us at the launch. If you have a Marine radio on board you can look for us on channel 6 or 82.. Hope to see you there Kaz smile.gif PS If you bring your own refreshments and a dish to pass, that would be good..

Well, it looks like we are covered. At this point it looks

like the weather will be nice. See you all at the Warroad

boat landing Saturday morning....

Someone mentioned a banner.....I dont think I can hustle

up a FishingMinnesota.com banner but I will bring a big

TRF Radio Banner and try to have it up so we can all find

each other. If someone has an FM banner let me know and we

will use that instead....

See you Saturday!!!!!!!

Curt/WalleyeJon, a question or three:

Is there a radio freq most will be using?

Is the plan still to have two fish frys? The ladies will be driving over from Baudette in the evening and wondering what time to tell them.

Any tips for west end rookies? Like where is the access, where to start, what they bitin on, any hazards getting out, etc.

      The public access on Grand Lake in Stearns County will be temporarily closed Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for hand removal of starry stonewort. This temporary closure is necessary for the safety of workers and divers.  A relatively light population of the invasive algae was recently confirmed around the Grand Lake public access, following a coordinated starry stonewort search involving 200 trained detectors in 20 counties. DNR invasive species specialists will hand-pull starry stonewort while preserving native aquatic plants. Starry stonewort has never been eradicated from any lake in the United States, but treatment can ease access and recreational use of a lake, while helping to reduce the risk of infestation to other water bodies. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Skunked.  Reruns on late nite so watch Hooker for laughs. Never saw it much in 1983. Shatter is Kirk as Hooker. To fun. He an his three self trained rookies are the answer to everything  the only squad with action an Hooker solves every case by end of show ending with a real dramatic line an stop action shot  acting is really bad but fun. City neeeds Hooker an he an crew kick it into high gear. Real 80's corn. Locklear n James Darren an Adrain Zmed prove trying to act is not hard but acting is. Total fun an totally predictable. Best lure I been use in is a simple black buck tail an a huge ol red n white spoon. Wallys like my raps dragged on a 2oz bottom bouncer an pike for some reason been eating my worms on a floaty. Smaller are a hoot an my Hounds love the action. Speaking of action. I have never seen a show with as much running in it as TJ Hooker. Ol Capt. Kirk is always on the go. "You call it in. I'll get'nm". "I want him bad. Ya hear. BAD".   :  ). I sure miss my pup Moe Rock. Bummer so this is a treat. Keep on rocken!  Fish on. T

      I agree with rudrave, a boat will open up a lot more opportunities to fish off shore.  You could get a brand new 16 foot fishing boat with a 25 hp motor and a basic sonar unit with trailer for about $10 grand and that sort of rig would get you on a lot of small to medium-sized lakes in addition to rivers around here.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has confirmed Hubbard County’s first case of Eurasian watermilfoil, an invasive aquatic plant, in Bad Axe Lake near Emmaville. DNR invasive species specialists confirmed Eurasian watermilfoil around the resort access to the lake. They reported it did not appear to be widespread into other areas of the lake. Eurasian watermilfoil can limit recreational activities on water bodies by forming mats on the water surface, and can alter aquatic ecosystems by displacing native plants. It is typically spread when plant fragments have not been properly cleaned from trailered boats, personal watercraft, docks, boat lifts, anchors or other water-related equipment. Treatment options include selective herbicides and mechanical removal, to minimize the plant’s impact while protecting native aquatic plant species. Treatment is unlikely to eradicate Eurasian watermilfoil from a lake. It may minimize impacts, but rarely prevents broader dispersion within a lake. This new confirmation is a reminder to boaters and anglers to follow Minnesota laws to prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species: Clean aquatic plants and animals from watercraft. Drain all water by removing drain plugs and keep drain plugs out while transporting watercraft. Dispose of unwanted bait in the trash. Some invasive species are small and difficult to see at the access. To remove or kill them, take one or more of the following precautions before moving to another waterbody, especially after leaving infested waters: Spray with high-pressure water. Rinse with very hot water (120 degrees Fahrenheit for at least two minutes or 140 degrees Fahrenheit for at least 10 seconds). Dry for at least five days. Details about Eurasian watermilfoil and other aquatic invasive species are available at mndnr.gov/ais. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
