      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 .

Totem Resorts - Wiley Point Lodge Fishing Report 6/21-6/26

Recommended Posts

Had a great time like always. Headed up to International Falls Friday Evening to stay overnight there so we could cross the border into Canada on Saturday morning (Musky Opener) when it would be less busy. We fished half day Saturday then Full day with a guide Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. We then fished our way back to the main lodge in Sioux Narrows on Thursday night. We caught lots of fish including 8 muskies between 4 guys and 2 boats many northerns biggest were 38.5, 39, 40, 41 and 43" many others in the mid 30's. All muskies we caught were still in cabbage bays up in 3-4' of water and they were really following a lot. In one day we saw over 20 muskies follow in one boat. I personally caught 3 out of 8 of the muskies a 25", 44" and 48" we also caught lots of fish in the 30" range. All of my 3 were caught a back and orange Rad Dog Spinnerbait with a chartreuse blade and a lime green double twister tail. Many other fish like the 43" northern were caught on a lime green bucktail with a lime and silver Indiana blade. These seemed to be the 2 hottest lures and of course we only had one of each of them. The walleyes were not hitting the greatest but we managed our shore lunch each day and got some to bring back on the last day. We stopped at an island on the way back off of a rocky point where we got lots of big fish.. I got a 22" eye my dad got a 21" and many others in the upper teens. All the walleyes we caught were on gradual sloping rocky points or humps. We also caught lots of northerns while walleye fishing so thats a sign they are starting to move out to rocky areas. Overall it was our best trip ever as far as fishing and weather as we only had rain there for probably an hour total which almost never happens.

Can't wait until next year!

    • I guess I started this thread but never gave model name lol. I have the cozyna model air fryer its been great unit and so far non stick surface has been holding up well in dishwasher after every use. Super easy clean up.
    • We really didn't shop around much.... Just bought one off of amazon with good reviews  
    • .... I knew that was coming the second I said "vacuum seal"
    • You could have just boiled them in the bag like Del does.....  
    • Anyone recommend a brand or model?
    • Ended up making some non-breaded steak cubes (aka "Chislic" here in SoDak) that turned out friggin awesome. I took a sirloin tip roast, trimmed it up, and cut it into 1" cubes. I then vacuum sealed them for 6 hrs in a little olive oil, worchester, garlic, and coarse black pepper. I sprinkled on a little lawry's before putting them in. I did two batches... one batch "medium well" for the wife and kids, and one batch medium rare for me. Medium well took 10 min, Medium rare was 6. Turned out awesome! Even the Medium well was still tender and juicy.
    • So what you're saying is if we ever hear him say "I'm going out to the garage to give my blade a love rub" we shouldn't be too worried?
    • I have had 2 of these for a year or so. They work great for fries, tator tots, onion rings, shrimp,chicken strips.and basically anything breaded when you buy it. And they don't need any oil. Only OK if you bread them yourself. For those I spray Pam on them. The only thing is breaded fish fillets are only so so. I still prefer deep frying them. Fish is the only thing I still deep fry. I indulge my self there. Just not as good as deep frying. Pretty much everything else I air fry.
    • You missed the part about "All my blades are hand rubbed with love"
