      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 .

Wheres everyone fishing for the 4th?

Recommended Posts

I figured many of us would be on the water over the 4th and was just curious to see where people are headed and type of fish they are targeting. I'm headed to the cabin in Wisc. to fish the Flambeau for a mixed bag of eyes, pike, skis, smallies and cats.

Croixflats, sorry to hearabout the shoulder but depending on the grade seperation you could be back on the water within a week or two. I seperated mine last year on the 5th of July. had to have my buddies fight most of the fish on Lake Michigan but not this year! Good luck with that.

Thanks, tunrevir

You heading back to Lake Michigan this year. Did you a charter out there or did you guys have your own boat. Do you fish for the salmon or what ever big fish that hits. One of these days Id like to make it out there.

I'm staying local and fishing around the Duluth area. St. Louis River, Fish or Island Lakes. I might shoot up to Vermillion for a day if the bite is slow around Duluth.

Sounds like we will get some wide and varied reports back after the fourth! This is awsome! Guys and Gals, be safe out there, obey the laws and look for others you can help out while on the water as some of these folks don't get out often. Keep them coming!

No where, don't own a boat, and if I did I wouldn't even go fishing cuz everyone and their grandma is going to be out with this nice weekend. So I will take the high road and be with the family and tie some flys, get things ready for bow hunting, and fall fishing as well. I've slaughtered my fair share of fish already this spring and early summer, so missing this weekend or the next 2 or 3 isn't going to hurt my feelings.

Staying in town so local lakes. Saturday will probably be Tonka - get on very early and fish while everyone is recovering from the celebration on the 4th and get off before the cabin cruisers start rolling around. Not sure about Sunday.

    • Method 1- Take a steak. Put in a bag. Season, marinate etc. Get plastic container and fill with water to recommended level. Vacuum seal the bag Plop said bag in the water Add glorified fish tank heater Set temp and walk away until you hit the desired internal temp. Pull bag. Start grill or frying pan Cut bag,dump steak in the pan or on the grill. Cook steak until done Clean up grill or pan Dump out water Wash water pan Put away vacuum sealer.   Method 2 Start pan or grill Season steak Cook steak Eat steak Wash pan or grill Relax.
    • yup interesting but I too will stay with grills and smokers.......   and frying pans...
    • Well since Del once again can't be bothered to provide supporting evidence to his own arguments I thought I would do it for him, again. If anyone here is really interested in sous vide cooking I would suggest reading this:  http://www.douglasbaldwin.com/sous-vide.html. This is probably about as comprehensive a guide to souse vide as you will find and the first part about food safety is very interesting and explains what Del couldn't. At this point I personally don't think the method is for me but I would keep an open mind and would like to taste some of the food produced by souse vide sometime.(hint) If you like to figure out mathematical equations in order to keep you and your family safe and tenderness is your one and only consideration when cooking a meal then sous vide may be for you. For me I love that smoky grilled flavor I get from cooking over fire or coals. 
    • Who's the one here who argues in favor of the FDA every chance he gets?
    • Good for you! Hard to get them wimmen away from that "put it back on the rack;  it ain't yet black!" mindset....
    • I deep fried a wild turkey yesterday to almost the recommended temp and thought it was way over done and on the verge of being a waste.  My wife thought it was great. I carved the domestic turkey in the roaster before the magic button popped and temp was barely140.  It was fantastic.  My wife was apprehensive but had to agree it was just right. I m slowly getting her off the “It ain’t cooked till it’s brown all the way through”.  
    • Yep, I'll be hunting off an on during the season. Plan on hunting Saturday afternoon.
    • Assuming you are hunting MN, the regs aren't super clear about quartering, but if you read them it sounds like quartering is fine as long as the deer is registered first.  If you don't have cell service to accomplish that before you quarter you need to keep the head attached to one of the quarters.  You could still get it done it might just make for an awkward load on your back.  I would also recommend a good pack for doing this, or your going to kill your back and shoulders.  I run a Mystery Ranch and have had about 90-100lbs in it many times while training and hunting.  That should mean even a big deer would be manageable in two trips for one person.   I hunt some pretty nasty country, so my pack and a couple game bags ride in my truck all season so I'm prepared for anything.  If you go that route consider getting yourself a pair of trekking poles as well.  They don't break the bank and they make a huge difference when you have a heavy load on your back.  As a bonus my MR Cabinet also holds my stand, and climbing sticks really nice when packing that in a long ways.
    • Ayup, sure went quiet fast.   Figgered that.  
    • I certainly hope ya saved me a piece of yer chocolate cake, though....
