      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 .

Client fishing trip help

Recommended Posts

Looking for recommendations for Lake of the Woods, Leech or Winnie to bring some customers out. Looking at a group of 20 max. Just looking for day houses and lodging at night. Looking to go during the week, like Monday - Wednesday. Does anyone know of an outfitter that can handle a group this big? Last few years we have done Red Lake and has been great. Just worried with this new slot on Red we won't get enough keepers for the clients to bring home their limit.

Thank you

I have only stayed at zippel bay so I Can not say if they are they best out there but I can tell you that I was really happy with what they had to offer when I went. The resort is nice they put us on fish.

If you are looking for keepers for them to take home I might suggest Devils Lake. Woodland resort is awesome out there!

1. From the metro its almost the same drive as LOW

2. The resort is nice and has many pricing option packages with day house.

3. The restaurant and bar at the resort is really good

4. The staff works really hard to put you on fish check in with you and will move you to different houses to get you on them

5. Perch the size of footballs

6. When we targeted walleye it was some of the best fishing I have every done I caught 30 in less than an hour every one was a good eater as well.

I have a group of 16 that goes out of Border View in the fall and uses one of their bigger cabins. Outstanding to be able to have everyone in the same cabin if possible.

Grand Lodge has a big great room and 8 bedrooms.

Great cabin is also and option holds 12 people and they are next to each other.

Other resorts have big cabins that can handle big parties as well.

Look for something big where everyone can eat, meet, play cards and talk after the day and you will have fun!!!!

Border View has been great to us in the past as well. They run a great operation and we usually bring a coach bus of guys up for a Monday-Wednesday trip as well and have no problem getting fish to bring home.

I will also put in a vote for Border View!

They have a couple large condos that can handle your group, great food and good fishing!

    • I would always use tree tubes for any hardwoods. If it's small enough to need a tube for protection from deer, rabbits, other... than use the tube. If your putting in the time and money to plant them, you might as well protect them.    Lots of them are on the market. I have only used one type of tube myself. Tubex- combitudes (spelling?). If you are worried about deer you should get the 5 foot tubes. Since that is about the upper limit of their browsing heights. I've used the fiberglass green stakes from L & M instead of buying the stakes from tree tubes suppliers. The only problems i have had so far is a curious bear, who wanted to chew a few tubes.    The other thing you should think about talking to your local DNR forester. They can help you to make sure you are planting trees that are correct for your soils. And may be able to help financially to purchase tubes. https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/cfm-map.html    Hope this helps, 
    • Thanks. Even got the itch to take a spin after seeing other bikes out today. Just a short ride down to the car wash to knock the dust off. Should have worn gloves though as it was a little nippy on the fingers. Maybe Ill run my Super Glide down there tomorrow
    • Birds in my area are too responsive, and yes i had 2 big fellas come in to my 1 tom and 2 hen set up. Accually i had the whole flock coming in and it was load with the hens and all the toms. One thing i fogured out is if there is alot of birds dont be soft calling. I tried to top the old hen and thats what pulled them my way. Good luck to my team and hopfully everybody could have a morning like I did, it wont be forgotten.
    • Well sounds like all went well. My wife just called and picked her up. She does have a drain tube but according to the wife she's acting normal..... For her!
    • Nice to see a few bird getting knocked down. Good job to those successful so far!  Are you guys out A season seeing a lot of responses to calls or decoys? 
    • good luck Zach!
    • Congrats featherslayer. Very nice bird! I got  a decent two year old this morning also. Twenty pounds eight ounces, nine inch beard, and five eigths inch spurs. The strut stopped for a couple of them today. Try to get a pic up later.
    • Heres a couple pictures we took after my work meeting and waking up the wife.
    • Smurf hope all goes well with the pooch. Definitely tough to see them as they age my 9 year old lab is getting pretty greyfaced. Started looking for another up and comer to start the training process again .
