      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 .

Recommended Posts

You should have good fishing, brings tons of jigs (chartruse, blue, white, orange) it is a small flooded reservoir and you will get hung up in alot of timber and rocks. Again bring lots and lots of jigs.

We are heading up their the first week of Sept. I am very excited. Outfitter17 said it is a small res. and I was under the impression Umfreville was a pretty large lake. Correct me if I am wrong. We are staying at Halley's camp at Caribou Falls. One tip that I can give is don't show up early cause they will wana charge you for it. Let me know how you do. Would love to see some pics. Have a great trip!

I spend a couple of weeks each year a little further upstream in Separation Lake and downstream in the river. You should have great fishing unless the river floods out. Keep your eye on your locator because the bottom can get shallow very quickly.

You do need to bring lots of jigs, but a trick I learned is to use a Mister Twister body on them. The jigs are more snag resistant. I don't buy the 3 for a buck jigs either. I use 1/8 and 1/4 oz grey lead and put a white, chartruse or orange twister body on it. White works the best. Most of the time I bite the tail off so the jig looks like a Fuzzy Grub.

Lots of people from Umfreeville Lake come up the river to Separation to fish.

I haven't heard of any way to get reports except off of Halley's Camp newsletters. But if you hear of anything, I would love to know. Would love to see pics. as well. We are heading up their the first week of Sept. and I can't wait. Passionfortheeyes went up their, I would love to hear how he did! Good luck! I am also looking for a lake map with depths, if you know where to get one that would be great to. Are you staying at Halley's?

I guess we are staying at a camp ground near by. My gf's family has been going up for around 20 years to the same place. Its not Halley's camp, its a campground on the lake near to Halley's. We are taking a 5th wheel camper.

I didn't know they had camp grounds their. I thought Halleys was the only place on the lake. So I guess you will be fishing Umfreville lake then? I just talked to a guy who said don't even try to fish mono up their cause you will lose all your lures. He just returned from their. But he said the fishing was excellent! He said to get some blue and silver rattle traps. Said he caught 3 pike over 37", and 3 walleye over 27". Thats some pretty good fishen! Have you looked at Halley's HSOforum? They put out a monthly newsletter thats pretty good. Well talk to you soon. Would love to see some pics!

The people I'm going with just got back. They said they had issues finding fish. Fish aren't yet on their summer locations. The water temps are around 50. They caught fish just not consistently.

The fish still in their spring shallows? Or have they started to head for the transition areas.

Any other recent reports?

    • First possum I've ever seen in my yard..
    •   Member of ADVRider. Rode with lots of guys on there. I just put out a feeler on here once in a while.
    • You ever check out www.thumpertalk.com Lots of guys in your area.
    • I am no expert either but putting my trust in the builder. Talking to him, there will only be enough lumber to screw the sheetrock to. There will be no 16" on center studwalls. He has done several like this with no problems. The "Gurts" are attached to the poles and you could saw the poles off at the bottom and move the whole building.
    • Like Leech said, it appears that a grant in aid trail is running through your area. I would urge you to contact the club president or another representative and try to work out a solution. They may be able to even re-route the trail to avoid your driveway but you will not know unless you engage in a civil discussion with a representative of the club. Just let them know you have concerns and see if an agreement can be had.    I would be surprised if the club doesn't have a landowners event every fall that you could attend and talk to club members as well to keep reminding them each year of your concerns.
    • Forgot this was a day game, missed it but happy we got the two points. We have been holding our spots and even have some games in hand on some other teams. If we can just keep this pace up we are in, but here is hoping we get hot towards the end of the year. Would be nice for a change. 
    • Nice win this afternoon on the road...things are getting interesting....need others to keep stumbling and we may not have to worry about a Wild Card.
    • That's the problem in restrictor plate races--stay on the gas and hit the car in front or lift and be hit from behind.
    • No doubt!   We didn’t have to wonder if there was actual contact though after Dillon said he had a run and just stayed in the gas.   Is what it is.  And that’s the difference I noticed.
    • So no sill plate for the walls on the perimeter then.  OK.     Again, not an expert so whatever your guys say and you’re comfortable with... I don’t know all your construction details. I - sandy County Is just that; sandy.  So it’s not too tough to get a good base.   My experience, as it relates to this, has just been based on building a 36x48 wood framed garage in Isanti County.  8 inch block on the perimeter to support 12 foot sidewalls of 2x6 construction.  My buddy that sold me the lumber said the project was only 200 feet short on interior walls from being a house.  After adding in the attic square footage it had more than my house.  Going with a pole building frame is the game changer.   Again, best of luck. It would be interesting to me to see the completed project.
