      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 .

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

    • Idk if I would use the winch rope, once that gets full of salt/chloride and sand I think it will get rotten.  I've been using winch rope on atv's since it first came out so I am fairly familiar and have broken a few of them.  I want to say I've seen a house with wide straps like seat belt material but I don't remember where.  The stainless steel cables are the best option besides going full hydraulic.  If I decide to build another one it will be hydraulic.
    • I'm not sure how good your buddies and family are at darts once they have a few pops?  But you may want to move the dart board to save your flat screen!  Just say'en!.
    • Are you going to finish the bottoms of the bunks? You'll be looking at the bottoms more than the tops.You're getting close, great feeling isn't it.
    • I retract the above statement 
    • Crops are out, sloughs are frozen.  Did very well on private ground in the Ortonville area this past weekend.
    • I bought the helix 5 SI mainly for a new summer unit since i didn't have GPS in the boat and with the intention of using the GPS for the ice at a minimum.  I figured it would be so/so on the ice but it actually worked really well in graph mode.  I am still fumbling around with some of the settings.  Naturally now that the new units have arrived i wish i would have waited for the newest offerings as they look to be a bit more geared toward the ice.
    • Your review is pretty much the same as my experience with my first gen Helix 5.  As a dual purpose unit it does fairly well on the ice but its a step below the dedicated ice units out there.  I bought mine because I do a lot of fishing from canoes so wanted a portable unit and it excels at that.  The fact that it works decently on the ice was a bonus.  I do ice fish but not as often as I used to and not enough to justify the cost of a dedicated ice unit.
    • That may be.  Like I said, I’m not into football THAT much so I’m basing my opinion on my gut and seeing the Vikings perform reliably for a change. I’ve actually had personal interactions with Green when he was coaching here.  He was OK but I wasn’t in awe of him.  I guess it’s more accurate to say I’m neutral there.
    • great pictures fellas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • You don't have to like him but not many coaches in the history of the NFL did more than Dennis Green did. I would say he was a "good" coach.
