      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 .

Mille Lacs Area

I was wondering if I stayed at the Grand Casino, if there was anywhere for me to go riding? Would i have to trailer? How far? Any help would be great.

You would have to trailer from there over to Isle and hop onto the Soo Line. Heading East, you will end up at the Redtop loop about 4.6 miles away from Isle. I believe there's a total of 35 miles of trail to ride there.

There are posted speed limits out there. I think the Soo Line is 25 mph.

I stayed just south of grand casino several years ago and trailered over to Isle which was about a 15-20 journey to get around the south side of Mille Lacs.

on that same note, when i was driving up 169, on the east side, i seen a 4 wheeler trail or path in the ditch for quite a long stretch. guessing from north of princeton to onamia. Is that just the local kids being non law abiding or is that a legitimate 4 wheeler trail?

I'm guessing it's not the later?

Thanks for the reply Dozer. If I had been able to make it to the Pine Center ride, I would have known this smile

Muleshack,

I believe this is north of HWY 10 and is north of the Ag zone so ditch riding would still be legal here barring any other restrictions or ditch closures by the county.

As far as I know, that is not a legal trail. I don't think it hurts anything, but it's just more people possibly hurting us ATVer's in the eyes of some.

I have heard though, that trail may be turned into a legal trail, but I don't think it follows 169 the whole way to Onamia.

Being it is a state highway make any difference?

I really didn't think that was open, but I could be wrong. I just know that some people show a smug face when they see the trails in the ditch.

Pine Center is probably going to be your best bet. It's on CR 2 south of Garrison. You'll probably have trailer it there though.

I thought if you are north of the ag line and not on an interstate you're legal to ride. Some people don't like the way it looks but I'm pretty sure it's legal. I've ridden Hwy 10 quite a bit and I've never had an issue, I would think 169 wouldn't be any different.

HWY 169 is a US Highway and from what I've been told is under state jurisdiction.

Interstates are the Right-of-ways that are off limits to ATV at all times i.e. I-94 and I-35.

There isn't much of a ditch in 169 anywhere north of Isle really to ride though. Can you drive out behind the casino and jump on some county roads to get down to the soo line or up to Pine Center?

    • Anyone here make their own wine?    I have been doing a little research on the process and plan to give it a shot this year. One of our favorite wines is Redass Rhubarb from Hill City SD and we like other fruit wines. My wife likes anything fruity and sweet. It may take me a while to dial in a few internet recipes to something we like but that's part of the fun.   I think I would try making some now but I think I would have to turn up our thermostat to get through the fermentation. It appears that a temp of 70-75 is necessary and our house is usually 62-68 this time of the year.
    •   I think that's exactly what I should have done. It would have probably reached me sooner. 
    • I'm thinking of selling my IceGator and going with the Strikemaster. Looking at the Strikemaster, it is not as bulky and heavy. The IceGator does cut ice like butter, especially with a Strikemaster 224 bit!
    •   The default temp is 360 for the NuWave 36001 Brio I mentioned above, but it can be programmed as high as 390. I absolutely agree that it does make a difference for certain things to get those extra 30-40 degrees.
    • yes i did i messaged him directly outside of the post
    • Looks like the Hawks might be without Crawford the rest of the season.   http://nhl.nbcsports.com/2018/01/16/report-blackhawks-concerned-crawford-could-miss-remainder-of-season/
    • We use a line voltage thermostat, with it set in the "cool" position.  Once it hits the set temp the thermostat kicks the fan on, until it gets below the set point.  Works pretty well.  
    • Strange I received our notification for WI yesterday but the page does not show any update. Either way WI permits are out. Already planning and getting blinds ready for this spring    
    • I have not used one, but they have attracted my attention. I have a wheelhouse but think this would be a better early ice option. Surprised at how pricey they are, but aluminum must be spendy! I think your ability to pull with the snowmobile will vary with snow depth, slushy conditions etc..... Studs will probably be helpful?  If you go that route, report back how it works!
    • I finally used it I was just testing it out getting the feel of things so didn't follow a recipe just cut up some Yukon gold potatoes zucchini onion and threw in a bunch of chicken breast. 1 can of cream of chicken and 2 cups of beer. Actual cook time after pressurized 12 mins. Some of the most tender chicken I have ever had.   Next day I made some jasmine rice and cubed some chicken breast and coated with sesame chicken sauce. Didn't think the sauce would steam good on its own so I put half cup of water as well. Then drained liquid when itt was done cooking and tossed them in more sauce before eating.   All in all I like it so far pretty easy stuff.
