      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 .

Mille Lacs this weekend

Recommended Posts

All right, I am calling on my board brothers/sisters for a little help/advice. I am leaving on Friday morning for a bachelor party. We are staying at a golf course in Garrison, and I am not all that interested in golfing all weekend like the rest of the bachelor party is. Here is the situation:

Originally we were going to get a launch for Saturday and /or Sunday, so when my brother asked if he could borrow my boat for the weekend, I gave him the green light.

Now I am without a launch and without my boat for the weekend.

So my question is this:

Can anyone recommend a public pier or a someplace that I can kill a bunch of hours doing something that I enjoy that doesn’t involve chasing the little white pill around?

Maybe someone can tell me if I can just hop on a launch with others? Not too sure how that works because I have only been on one launch prior.

Thanks in advance for all the advice and help.

Tony

You can just hop on a launch for $30 for 4 hours. Myr Mar launch caught fish last weekend. Twin Pines, Eddy's, Terry's and on and on are all on the west side.

I say go with golfing...

The bachelor party trip isn't about the golfing... It's about your buddy getting to spend time with his friends, as he changes hands from one partnership with his man-friends for the new partnership with his wife...

I'd be offended if I was the Groom, and one of my buddy's copped an attitude about golfing so he went off on his own.

My Bachelor Party is a five day fishing up north, chasing Musky and Walleye...

It's the inverse of you situation... Where there are some guys coming with us who have no interest in fishing... But they're coming along because it's about spending some last cherished guy time with me... And they honor that and set aside their own small disinterests for the sake of respect.

I say you should step outside of your comfort zone, go golfing and honor your friend.... Or you should stay home.

The groom to be has no problem with anyone going fishing while the others are golfing. He himself is an avid fisherman, and would like to hit the lake and try to get some fishing in. The only issue that we are having is trying to get all the attendants of the bachelor party to agree on a time to go. This is a pretty open and laid back style bachelor party. A little golfing, some fishing, maybe hit the casino? Who knows?

The other problem is, is that my golf game falls off somewhere around the 1st hole, and only gets worse from there. By the 2nd hole I want to bend the shafts on every club in my bag...yeah, I'm that good. grin.gif

It is not that easy to catch fish on Mille Lacs.. It is over rated... Everytime I am out, i see so many boats around mine. However, I dont see any of them net much fish, if not any at all. Most of the people out there are not even catching anything. Some do, but they dont catch that many.

Yep all went well. Got out with a couple of others for about 5 hours and managed around 12 walleyes with 3 in the slot. Had enough for a little fish fry that night. Biggest was 25.5 and the smallest was about 8 inches that I foul hooked.

Those fish looked pretty healthy for fish that got slammed during the week with the PWT stop there.

The weather was on and off, and the wind kept the boat a rockin pretty good.

      Went up north grouse hunting it was fun. I must say having a dog makes it better.  This weekend is duck opener and I am jacked up for it.

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.

      Captain Acorn, I use Gamagatu  octopus hooks. Size 4 for crawlers and size 2 for minnows. Red, black, chartreuse, and pink , mostly red and black. I use orange and green glow soft beads at times. (Worked today!) Cliff
