      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 .

Thinking about visiting some family over that way and they suggested all of us camping at Bray or Daly park. Any one have any thoughts on either one? And, which would you rather fish...Bray/Madison Lake or Daly/Lura Lake?

I don't know either lake so if the parks are a horse a piece then the better lake for fishing will be the deciding factor.

Thanks

Bray is a nice park and your a stones throw away from the water.

If you are talking now or soon, I'd recommend Bray. Lura is weeded over (only about 9 feet deep max). Bray will be full, but they may let you camp in the over-flow. Both are very nice parks. Bray will be more busy on weekends since it is a more popular lake with a nicer beach (and closer to kato).

Sounds like Bray is the clear choice. Have to see if there is any room at the Inn so to speak.

Thanks all for the info. wink.gif

I seen that on the Mn Bass Fed club schedule, Northern Black Bass,I believe it was.. good less pressure for the weekend,I heard it was a "hayfield" anyway so im not sure what to ecspect. I remember the first championship tournament I had down there in 05 when SMBT WAS R.C.L.A , when they got all that rain the night before. the water was high and dirty, so i hope the rain holds of for now.

By the way are you a support rep for minnkota or just hummingbird? i need a small part for my trolling motor and don't really want to drive all the way over there for a shaft adjustment knob!

just got back from lura fishing was at best poor in my book,

put aprox. 8 fish in the boat all weekend. the high winds kept me off fishing most of the more productive spots. There is a lot of pond weed through out much of the lake. and ony about 5' of water on the inside weed lines if at all I would wait till mid july before i would head back there

      Any new ice reports?  Looking For s something about Nicholas or strand

      what if you pull a wheel house to Mn from out of state or are a non resident?
    • Hoey
      I am noodling this same concept over.  I am thinking either a dedicated (portable) battery, since I may be pulling on shore to the ice with the 4-wheeler or a hand, boat-type winch, not always hooked up to the truck.  
    • Hoey
      Copy that!
    • Hoey
      Wow that is great to know.  Thanks for sharing.  Nothing like learning the laws from a CO on the lake.
    • birdguy
      Per the DNR news release dated November 20th:  “Wheeled fish houses, which formerly were considered portable – and thus excluded from licensing requirements for shelters – will now need to be licensed,” said Al Stevens, fisheries survey and systems consultant with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. “In the past, anglers using wheelhouses could use them without shelter licenses as long as they were occupied, including overnight.” The change pursued by the DNR and enabled by 2017 legislation accompanied hunting and angling fee increases. An annual resident shelter license is $16. A three-year license is $43. Owners of houses to be rented pay $31 annually or $88 for a three-year license. A valid license tag must be attached to the outside of the fish house in a readily visible location. ~~~~~ Any ideas on how to go about attaching them since they're no longer stickers like they used to be? Apparently you can't put them inside in a window facing out per the 'outside' requirement of the law.

      so here’s the scoop , as most fishermen know most of the resorts up here started letting wheeler and sleds out on the lake last weekend. That does not mean you can go any where you want as the winds have shifted the ice a couple times and opened up a few cracks . Check with the resort you access and stay in the areas that have been checked out.
      The fishing has been pretty good.
      I have had a few projects that were put off untell I got laid off from the golf course and mother nature again made my projects more challenging. I’m making progress slow and steady and maybe this time I have learned my lesson not to put these off when its 70 and sunny. Chasing breaking 80 at the golf course has got me processed.
      From the looks of it there a good chance we will have all our sleepers on the lake by the 7th of dec.
      My plans are again to go out of Hillmens resort and help Buddy hillmen with his road. He has built a 2 story house that may or may not be on the lake as its huge, I think it can sleep 8 to 10. Its crazy big 14 by 28.

      I appreciate the feedback. We love being out on the ice, so we'll keep plugging away.  Good luck to all this winter and be safe out there!

      I was worried about the wire size too. Thanks ProV. I guess I can’t avoid it.
