      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 .

Partyonpine.

The launch at Ellison Lake has always been private. The owner of Sand Point supper Club Herb Rummler owned it. He let people use it as a public launch because some of them would eat at his restaurant or drink at his bar. When died a few years ago the family sold the property and it became condo's/cabins. The restaurant is gone and the launch was gated off. Its the only access for the lake so I don't know if people with homes on the lake can use it or not. I haven't fished it since the change because of no launch. I had been fishing it several times a year since fall of 1970 when we bought a cabin on the Eau Claire Chain. It was a great bass northern lake.

The restaurant was good also . Ahh memories

Use to be one of my favorite lakes to fish when I was a kid. I have permission from a friend who has a cabin on it to launch my boat in his yard. Just haven't done it lately. Lakes water level is so low from what it was 15 yrs ago that its just a puddle now.

I use to like to fish Muck and Sand also, same deal.

I also used to fish Muck and Loon Lake. All those lakes require run off which just hasn't happened latley. In th 20's those lakes were drier and allowed the jack pines to grow to 6 inch diameter then flodded them out. I think its a cycle. Hjalmer Skoglund from Skoglands bar said they drove accross Ellison back then it was so low.

We use to catch some big bass in Loon. A few nice northerns and crappies too. Hows that landing look? Wasn't very good years ago. Whats that clear lake just up the road from there? Tommahawk?

The Loon lake landing is very soft sand and tough to launch out of plus the boat landing bay is separated by a sandbar from the lake due to low water. Are you talking straight north of Loon on the paper Co land? Muck lake? Was a great bass lake in the 80's

    • In SD you can only buy one any weapon Black Hills tag in the spring.  There is a state-wide archery only tag that can be used out here as well.   Usually it is tough to get just one bird, so I don't buy an archery tag.   This year we planned on rock climbing after shooting turkeys, so we are kicking that off a little quicker than expected.   I do not believe it is possible to buy non-res over the counter tags, even though it is not a lottery, and buying online requires shipping to an address that takes a few days...   I also did not bring my bow, but if my uncle has a bow for me to use I might call game and fish to see if I can buy an archery tag in Rapid and hunt a bit each day before we go climbing.  
    • before...or after happy hour!!!!!!!!!

    • What a difference a week makes! Even far northern Wisconsin is finally making it to spring. With temperatures in the 50s and 60s, snow is melting quickly in the Northwoods, although it isn't gone yet and it may be awhile before its gone in the woods. Northern lakes still have up to 2 feet of ice and it's looking at this point that some lakes will still be iced over when the general fishing season opens on May 5. SLIDE SHOW | 6 photosWhat a difference a week makes!With all the snowmelt, waterfalls have come to life. Last Friday both Big and Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park were completely ice covered, but with warmer temperatures, they both came to life. People were eager to see the transformation with more than 385 vehicles visiting the park over the weekend to view the falls. Both Forks of the Flambeau are also open now and their falls are roaring.As things are drying out, we're also moving into the spring wildfire season. In the last week 60 wildfires burned 129 acres in DNR Protection Areas. Half of the fires were caused by debris burning. Stay aware of fire danger and burning restrictions by searching the DNR page for keyword fire. .
