Check out the Photo sharing forum. There is a sticky on the subject of posting picts.

That should get you started. You will need to have your picts hosted somewhere like photobucket, etc.

I can host images too... I own a gig of webspace and don't use very much.. avatars are tiny!

You also need to resize the photo. I use a freeware called avatar sizer.

I’ll take a stab at helping you out.

First off, you need to have the desired picture saved on your computer. It can be on your desktop, in your "My Pictures" folder, "My Documents" folder or any other folder; it just needs to be saved in your computer.

Then you need to go to an image hosting site. Do a search for Image Shack and that will get you to the one I have had the best luck with.

When you get to the website, click on browse. This will open a new window that will allow you to look (browse) through your folders on your computer. You want to navigate to the location you have your image saved. Once you get to your image click on it one time and then click the open button. This will prepare the website to upload the image and give it a URL.

Before clicking "host it" make sure that the "resize image” box is checked and the size is 100 x 75. Also make sure a check is in the box that says "remove size/resolution bar from thumbnail.” Now you can hit the "Host it" button.

After the image is done uploading, you will be brought to a new page. You want to highlight the link in the "Direct link to image" box, right click on it and select copy.

Now open up Fishingminnesota.com and click on "my home" then click on "Edit" which is to the right of the words "Personal information, email, password, etc." Then scroll down almost to the bottom of the page. Right click in the "URL to your avatar" box, and select paste. This will put that new link into that box. Make sure to dot the circle in front of the box.

Lastly, click on the submit button. Your avatar should now pop up on all your past posts as well as new posts.

And there ya have it.

Feel free to ask if you still have troubles. Eventually you will get it. It took me a couple tries at first too.

Just remember the picture in your avatar cannot exceed 109x150 pixels. So resize it before you upload to the image hosting site. Also regular photos are much easier to view in the forums if you make those a bit smaller too.

      Mark, Glad your crew had another great outing. It’s always good to read your reports. Just wish there were more of them like the old days. Sorry you hit the storm. One of the worst in our 14 years. We’ll be dealing with dock issues for a long time but nothing like the good folks in Cook have.  The fishing has come around a little since the storm. Definitely nightcrawler now. I don’t get far out of Frazer but the reefs are where the action is. Looking forward to hearing from you in September.  My best to you and Linda, RLG p.s. Our good old red lab, Ole, cashed it in last summer, but we have a 6 month old lab now who is learning the ropes up here (and teaching us we’re older than we think we are!)

      We just returned this afternoon from 6 days on Vermilion. We arrived Saturday and enjoyed 3 fantastic days of walleye fishing. My cousin, our friend Greg, and myself fished several of our spring spots and found fish on all of them. Water temperatures were pretty much 65-67 degrees everywhere we fished. The wind was variable and made boat control a challenge at times. Bait was not an issue and we had success on crawlers(Tim), leeches(Greg), and minnows(me). If I had to pick one of those as catching the most fish, it would be crawlers. Our best day totalled 48 walleyes, 4 smallmouth, and 2 big JUMBOS. We ended up with over a hundred walleyes, 12 jumbos 11"-13", and 10 smallmouth to 18". Our biggest walleye was 24.5" and the balance went from 13"-22". There are lots of 14"-16" walleyes this year which are perfect eaters. The mayfly hatch was in full bloom in some areas but we found very few mayflies in the water column over rock reefs. We caught our fish in depths ranging from 10' to 32'. I didn't fish in any area where I could see mayflies top to bottom in the water column. Slow trolling in the .3mph to .6mph worked and we caught nothing using slip bobbers. Terminal tackle was a 3'-4' 10# flurocarbon leader, 2 lime colored beads, and a plain #6 Gamakatsu walleye hook . Snags are always an issue when fishing in and around the rocks and when the fish are biting they are acceptable. NOW, for the bad news.......Tuesday was a day I won't soon forget. The area suffered devastating torrential rainfall. Lightning was non-stop for several hours and when things settled down, flood damage was everywhere. We checked our rain guage on the side of the cabin and we got 7 3/4 " in a little over 4 hours! Breezy Point road washed out, Mud Creek road washed out as did several others in the area. Cooke business area was completely covered with flood water. I would consider it a disaster area and should be declared as such. We couldn't find a dock anywhere that wasn't covered with water. People were stranded behind flood covered and washed out roads. Dock decking, limbs and such were floating everywhere in the big water. My group sends our prayers to the people of that beautiful country that lost their businesses, homes, and suffered damage to their lake properties. The people of that north country are resilient and we have confidence that they will recover. We stayed our final 3 days but didn't fish at all Tuesday. Our last 2 days showed the effects of the storm. Water temps dropped to 64 degrees and our premo fishing became 10 walleye days. We did manage to catch a dozen really nice jumbos. We plan on returning in September and we pray the area will have returned to normal by then. I haven't figured out how to transfer photos from my phone to my computer yet so no pictures at this time. Good Fishing and God be with you. MarkB

      Word is that the river has peaked and therefore the town can start the process of recovering sooner.
    • smurfy
      Heard that too. Also heard 38 was closed for a but north of rapids due to flooding.    I know the water really came up when I was up last week compared to when I was there in April.
