      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 .

Going to Umfreville Lake, Ontario

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?

    • sorta helps, I'll find it...  thanks... me and google just got it.....     have to go see!!
    • Hall of Fame? You must be joking...... Every player starts out like that. No one starts out with a 23 m dollar contract. He still averaged about 15 million per year for his career, that average probably goes up if he plays past 2018. I think he will be ok.
    • Joe was also the 74th highest paid player the year he won the MVP. You may say he is over paid now but he was underpaid 1st half of his career. @Bobby Bass   I don't think Joe is a future Hall of Famer, not even close to borderline but a great player none the less. I think if the Twins would have made a deeper playoff runs back when Morneau was healthy and Santana was Cy-young would have helped. But Joes playoff numbers are terrible. I could maybe see HOF if he would have stayed at catcher his entire career though..... But he will more than likely end up winning a gold glove at 2 positions, and with one being catcher that is pretty elite.
    • Big Dave most if not all pro contracts are paying you for what you have already done with the hope that you will continue to produce. Looking at todays contract Joe's is not to out of line for a future Hall of Famer
    • Great! He is finally earning a contract close to what he is being paid. 
    • thx.  directions are on the site below. just across river from college    http://www.munsingerclemens.com/the-gardens/munsinger-gardens 2 areas, up top and down by river
    • Free agency is far from a sure thing, if there are young centers out there (big if) you have to compete with maybe 10 or 20 other teams and pay way over what you should. You have control of nothing and are at the whims of a player everyone is chasing. Same with trades, very easy to swing and miss. By most account we were in on Ryan Johansen with the Preds but Columbus wanted Jones over Brodin and I don't blame them. 
    • Good stuff but time wiill tell. Not buying the "oh we might lose him as a UFA"...so what, with that kind of money we could buy just as good and younger to give us more of a future...which we desparately need to be thinking about.  Fletch is walking a tightrope and it is going to break IMO.
    • Come on BB, you are better than that. You as much as anyone know that ONE player doesn't make an NHL Team a Stanley Cup contender so why put that blame on him. Sure, a player like Crosby certainly helps, but we aren't talking about the money that Crosby is getting here either. Comparing Koivu's contracts to equivalent players with similar production is quite compelling. He has performed better than many of his peers for his current contract and with the lower AV of his new deal if he continues similar numbers it will be a bargain. I wasn't too happy about the NMC either, but I take that as a bargaining chip so CF didn't have to go with a longer term deal. 2 years is sufficient and I think it works well for both parties. You are right, there are many people out there with more knowledge about the market and what he could have gotten elsewhere and when it may have made sense to sign him, but the fact is you don't want to wait to sign him until after the season for if no other reason at all than to allow him to be a UFA and hear other offers. This will be my last post about the Koivu extension because clearly we don't see eye to eye on whether it made/makes sense, but I assure you there are a large number of "hockey minds" that are in agreement with me on this. Here is some afternoon reading for you: https://www.hockeywilderness.com/2017/9/20/16332552/mikko-koivu-contract-extension-minnesota-wild-criticism-overpaid-chuck-fletcher-cap-space
