      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 .

Line Class Record Muskie

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys,

It looks like Lucas Adams, while guiding at Camp Manitou on wednesday caught a possible 8lb. line class world record muskie in esox lake, just south of the manitou stretch. It was 51.5" caught while bass fishing on a pink jig. From what we have found this ties the record, but we can't get ahold of anyone to verify, being a holiday today.

If anyone knows anymore about what the official 8lb. record is let me know.

Thanks,

Matt

I have the pictures but for some reason I can't post them? I did on another fishing site no problem?

Of course it was released, we don't keep any muskies or any other fish of any size anything decent is all released. It's mainly Catch and Release except what you are going to eat.

Is there a simple way to post pics?

Thanks,

I saw the pictures of Lucas and the muskie. Its an impressive fish to say the least. Catch and release is the only way to go, esp on fish of that nature. Let em fight for another day.

That's one seriously beautiful healthy fish.

You must have handled her gently to have the tail still be that perfect.

I hope to meet her soon - or her mother!

Congrats to you Lucas!

She was in real good shape. We did our best to be easy on her and get her back in water to make sure she survived. She seemed to be in great shape as she swam off.

Hey Matt,

It looks like you have access to email up at Camp Manitou. Why don't you return some phone calls regarding deposits at Happy Landing??? Sure would be the fair and ethical thing to do - don't you think??

Hi John,

I did return your last phone call and I talked to one of the other guys in your group. I sent out your checks this afternoon. I haven't been in the office for 2 weeks, if that is where you are calling?

I told you a couple weeks ago that I would send you check back once I recieved and insurance check, one came in last thursday and I sent out may and june guests as well as yours. I guess it was unethical to send yours out before the july guests, but I know you really need it - so I sent it.

I will call you tomorrow, I will be in the office and we can touch base.

Matt

well...I dont want to get in the middle...but my brother and I were up there a few weeks back. Between the 2 of us we had a miscommunication and we had no check for our final payment. Matt trusted me to send the check when we got back (hopefully you should have that soon - Matt) and we really appreciated the understanding. having your resort burn down cant be the easiest thing to manage - so I am sure he is doing his best with this...just my 2 cents.

Matt,

Thank you for the reply. Here has been the problem....I have called every number I can and no one returns the phone calls or emails. I did get a message but could not understand much of anything at all. I assume that you called from the lodge and the reception made it impossible to understand. We could make out Happy Landing and 4 boats and walleye and that was all. I have left more than 10 messages so I was feeling ignored for sure. I am terribly sorry about the lodge. We really wanted to fish with you there---otherwise we never would have made the reservation in the first place. But also remember that your insurance company has a relationship with you - not any of us in our group. With the 9 dads and sons in our group - a few felt they could not go to Canada this year unless they received the deposit back. I was left with the task of tracking it down. So thanks for sending the checks as we will be able to make our father/son trip work.

I gave her your numbers and e-mail, so she sould contact you soon.

Hey Mark,

The bass fishing has been very good the past week or so and the big pike are really starting to show up where ever there is emerging weed growth. We are still behind with the cool water and cooler air temps, but it looks like the summer patterns are just around the corner.

The walleye fishing has been fantastic on Straw and Sucan the past few trips also. They are already in a summer pattern, because of the stained shallow water. The water temps over there are already in the mid 70's.

Matt -

Thanks for rubbing it in!

I will be up there next weekend - I wish!

So, did you guys ever verify anything yet with the Muskie?

How are those 2 small lakes doing that we fished for smallies...are they still in there?

Hope the rest of the season goes well.

Mark

Hey Mark,

It looks like the 8lb. line class with the FWFHOF is 61", but we are now checking with the ontario line records.

The bass are only in two spots on phairs, most have moved out with the warming of the water.

If next year is a normal year, you might want to plan about 2 weeks ahead of what you did this year to stay on the same pattern.

What a great fish, thanks for posting

I would *GUESS* that is anywhere from a 36-40 lb fish, an absolute beauty indeed

    •   I doubt luck had much to do with it sir. 
    • I saw on a show about a guy living on a point on a lake that had many houses on poles in the water about 20ft from shore. Maybe about 3ft above the water. All the houses were full, It was cool to watch. Easier to maintain at that height, waist deep in water. 
    • I know folks who clean out the martin house's every year.....
    • I rinsed them and put them out whole.
    • Well, fellas,  lemme tell ya:  I've had one terrific life and done more things than you'd probably believe.  In fact I told my wife one evening shortly after we had moved to the lower 48, "I think you had best cool it with some of your recollections of our time and adventures in the North because I get the feeling most people won't believe you anyway. And to this day we don't shoot off our mouth too much just for that reason. EVERYBODY should be as lucky as I have been!!  
    • Sounds like there will be 17 guns offered!! Come  on the odds of winning a gun are great
    • I will go to small mom and pop bait shops I know pay more for some jugs but I love the service 
    •   Ufatz, not doubting a word you have to say, you are quite the colorful creator. The stories you have told over the years of trapping in the Yukon Territory. Living in a log cabin, driving old trucks with right and left hand lug nuts and fighting off Big Foot have been interesting to listen to.  To say the least. And now, you live in MN and drive a Mercedes Benz!  Hat's off to you're life sir.
    • Just make a point of telling the shop people to use a torque wrench and then tell them the value you want on your vehicle,  which you will have gotten from the manual. My Benz's have aluminum wheels for the most part and you can distort and ruin one it a Millenial Ape gets at them with a giant super powered wham-bam air powered wrench. I've found too many that know drugs,  not lugs.
    • Hey 3rd in the central and winning games on the road, we are certainly trending in the right direction at the right time of year. After some rocky starts to their careers Zucker and Granlund have really turned into some amazing players, like anyone they go hot and cold but I can't really say enough good things about them. Along with Staal they have really carried our offence this year. Hopefully in the next 20 games we can get some other guys going. Coyle can give us more, Nino looks a little off but it sounds like he is still fighting that ankle injury. Parise looks like his old self more and more but just not converting like he use to, hopefully that changes. I was against making a deadline move earlier in the year but if we keep this pace up we really could use another top9 winger, Ennis just isn't cutting it. Absolutely do not want to spend a 1st rounder on anyone at this point but if they can pick up someone decent on the cheap it might be worth it. We still have the majority of the team that was 2nd in the west last year and if they can play up a little closer to their potential there is not reason we can't make some noise in the playoffs in some kind of underdog fashion.
