      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.

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.

    • Do I need to answer to you? Absolutely not, especially when you are going to try to put together some physics logic behind why treadmills are good, completely neglecting to describe how muscles function with a protagonist and antagonist relationship.  Meaning when your quads are suppose to relax and your hamstrings are suppose to engage and vice versa.  When that doesn't happen over and over again due to the belt doing the hamstrings work, then you are developing an inefficient movement pattern (compensation) and you can expect pain, arthritis, injury, replacement, etc. (Familiar, I know the arthritis bit is) You are training yourself not to work like you were created to work.  Although for you Del, I completely understand if you think you are smarter then how we as a species got to be who we are today.  Or at least you can find something to copy and paste from somebody else whom feels the way you do, who also got dooped into buying a treadmill or pays a monthly fee to walk on a treadmill.  If you want to start judging me, I can judge you Del and this can be very fun for me but then all the snowflakes on here would melt because I brought some heat.  Your old timer buddies would come and save you, delete half my postings that expose you know absolutely nothing about this topic, you all can cry about how I am so mean and hate filled, and then not troll me for a few months until you are updated with one of my postings and then crawl right back into an argument where I make you look stupid all over.  Up to you buddy.   Dave, I got 32 seconds into that video, couldnt stand the guy and stopped it.
    • I'm no expert on this stuff but I'm guessing this is what Dr. Juice is alluding to in his own condescending way.....    
    • I am still waiting for something exciting on the Wild front...nothing yet that is for sure...just hoping the same old guys have some gas left in the tank at the end of the year and the "young kids" have finally graduated and can bring it to another level...it's all about the playoffs...getting in is easy...actually making any sort of run is the is where the rubber meets the road. Cullen making a "family" decision vs a "hockey" decision was lucky for Chuck that is for sure and Cullen is not going to bring us to another level...but will be an OK role player and 3rd or 4th liner..probably will fill the jersey of a young guy we have unfortunately..but it is what it is.
    • Which questions?  The one about your education?   Must have been a long time ago since I don't recall it.  I do remember you being a big big huge fan of Chiropractic.   Perhaps you could refresh my memory, it shouldn't take long to post your CV   And I guess you must have missed physics class as well, since in physics calculations of forces are the same no matter the frame of reference, yet you continue to suggest there is a difference between a frame referenced to a person's center of mass, and one referenced to the earth.   I did see this article from a newspaper.... The author must have at least as much qualification as you do http://healthyliving.azcentral.com/muscles-worked-out-using-treadmill-7727.html What Muscles Are Worked Out When Using a Treadmill? The treadmill is a versatile exercise machine that lets users walk, jog and run on flat or uphill surfaces. In addition to providing an effective cardiovascular workout, treadmills also help strengthen the muscles of the legs and butt. Depending on the incline, you can work the front or the rear of your legs more intensely; however, every treadmill workout strengthens both.   The Quadriceps People who walk and jog on the treadmill with regularity gain endurance and strength in the quadriceps muscles. The quadriceps are named for the four large muscles on the front of the thighs; they are the rectus femoris, vastus lateralis, vastus medialis and vastus intermedius. These muscles help the body jump and squat in addition to walking and running. As a result, treadmill exercise applies to more than just working out; it also improves the ease with which you go about activities of daily living. The Hamstrings Like the quadriceps, "hamstrings" is also a collective name for a muscle group. The hamstrings, comprising the biceps femoris, the semitendinosus and the semimembranosus, lie between the buttocks and the back of the knee on the rear thigh. The muscles of the hamstrings are used for power walking and running in addition to squatting and jumping, and -- in general -- the more you exercise on the treadmill, the greater your hamstrings' endurance gains will become. However, according to the University of Wisconsin, roughly a quarter of collegiate athletes who sprint injure their hamstrings. As a result, warm up on the treadmill slowly, and increase running speeds gradually. The Calves The calf muscles of the rear lower leg, comprising the gastrocnemius and the soleus, also work hard during treadmill exercise. According to a study from the Laboratory of Medical Physics in The Netherlands, most of the work performed by the calf muscles occurs as you push off from your toes while walking, running and jumping. You can increase the workload on your calves -- and your hamstrings -- by increasing the incline on the treadmill. The Glutes The glutes make up the muscles of the rear end and, like the leg muscles, help you walk, jump and run. "Fitness" magazine reports that people who set their treadmills to a steep incline increase the workload on their glutes significantly, which increases strength, improves endurance and burns fat and calories. Although the treadmill helps you gain leg strength, the machine is primarily known for its cardiovascular health benefits. As a result, if you exercise regularly on a treadmill you can expect health gains on the inside of your body as well as the outside.    
    • Talk about humor, the original post was from April 2013.    I'm sure the OP has already bought his treadmill, used it as a clothes hanger and re-sold it on C-r-a-i-g-s-l-i-s-t. 
    • Deer numbers on PUBLIC land in NW WI are very low.  Private land seems to be the opposite.  I hunt a number of public areas in Polk County for the last ~10 years or so.   You have to work pretty hard to shoot a deer there.  MFL land is also heavily hunted, but there are lots of opportunities.   Once you learn an area you might do alright, but it is tough if you are new to the region.   Don't expect to get permission to hunt on any farms, in my experience they are all tied up for friends/family.
    • Thanks for the humor. 
    • Thanks for the humor.
    • boys........boys.......................boys.................do you to need a time out? a group hug??????????
    • I'll just laugh when you fall because you have a terribly inefficient movement pattern created by a treadmill.  I don't need any sort of medical background to know that you move on the ground (earth) as you pull yourself forward and push yourself away while on a tread mill your just moving without purpose.  Your body will learn from repetition and when you increase the intensity, your body will develop those patterns faster.   Thank you for the attempted digs, I have addressed every one of those questions in the past numerous times.  Its not my fault you cant remember Dick
