      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 .

Aug 16th GTG

Recommended Posts

Hi gals

Looks like we're on for the next great womens GTG. Mark your calendars for Aug 16th.

All of you that couldn't make the first one, now is your chance to join the fun.

I've got a post in to all the Moderators in the state for a good centrally located panfish lake with a campground. When I get a few good possibilities I will through them out for comments.

Another idea may be Cutfoot Sioux. We could catch pannies there too. We could camp around there too.

I did some online checking and there are several Chippewa National Forest campgrounds with available spots open, just a thought.

I am game for either Farm Island or Cutfoot Sioux. I haven't fished either one.

I looked at the DNR HSOforum, and they stock Walleye fry each year in Farm Island, and the sizes surveyed looked like good eatin'.

I'm in, my boss better give me that Friday off after this week. I did not know that she was going to run an ad in one of the local job newspapers, the phone has just been crazy.

Hope

Farm Island slot limit: all walleyes between 17"-26" must be released. cry

Barb Cutfoot has the same slot limits but they do have some really nice campgrounds.If you can get a spot in the Deer lake site there is a lagoon that you can keep your boat in at night so if a storm comes up you will not have to load the boats.

I found a resort-campground that has an area for large groups on Osakis. Give this some thought.

Ok - check out

Lake Osakis.

headofthelakesresort dot com

and

Linwood Resort

I like Head of the Lakes Resort. But am open.

Is Lake Osakis good for everyone? Lisa I think you would have the longest drive.

I guess it would really help if we knew how many are coming and what everyone needs for accommodations. This is the one I found that offers a group site and group rates.

Two Mile Campground

Sounds like Osakis would be good, if we can find a place to stay. I haven't been to any of the places suggested.

I think the drive will be the longest for Lisa, Teresa and me. If anyone has any other suggestions I am open for all possibilities. Nothing will be like Appledoorns because of the hospitality of Paul and the fact we had the camping area to ourselves. One thing I noticed about the state campgrounds is alcohol is prohibited, and most of the sites available are first come first served not reservable. I think when we get to the reserving stage we should contact the various resorts and find out if they have an area where we can either get a group rate or at least all be together. A big group of my friends reserved some spaces at a campground and they ended up placing us all over the place. Wasn't much fun.

Muskybait, I certainly hope you can make this one too.

Osakis is a manageble drive, and I'd love to try the lake. I'm OK with any gathering place....I would welcome electrical for the pop up..but I also have a tent.

    • the brown hounddog pictured above went in today to get fixed up!!!!!! wife should be able to pick her up about 3;30 today. sure stunk not being able to feed her this morning. the looks i got ........like what da he!!!!!!!!!
    • the missed call hasnt really bothered me, the wild should have retaliated after that but they seemed just lax about it. too bad they suspended him, just wish I was old enough to watch the playoff atmosphere of the 80's and early 90's. i thought by the end of the 3rd they would have tied it, I think the mix up lines helped change up the momentum, boudreau will need to pull some of this stuff tonight if they seem stale. I agree with Lung, Kiovu has not impressed me this year, his shootouts, his shots on goal just nothing special, just hope tonight they find a spark on the offense as we know those big boys on the Jets will be pushing them around tonight, too bad we dont have some more Folino's
    • I have the Cabelas 8'6" telescoping trolling rods in a med action I believe. Been using them for 4-5 years now. They work great for what you are asking. Although I have never caught striper on them, they work well for the walleyes up to 28". I think they collapse down to about 7'. Very reasonably priced.
    •   Is this some of your new Marketing idea's for the site Dave?
    • Snuck out today had one walk by 40 yards no shot ones gobbling at me across swamp making hos way now
    • If the refs call the game tight like they did in game 3, i think we come away with the W.  If they kind of turn a blind eye like they did in Game 4, the series is over.
    • Koivu has been pretty decent and our leading out team with 4 points but ya we just never find that next level. Our patchwork D hasn't been the issue, Stall hasn't produced like we needed him to and Nino, Coyle & Zucker have zero points between them. We needed our "depth" to score and they haven't. Coyle I think has been the best of him but he just isn't a goal scorer, has let numerous golden opportunities slip away. Hopefully the wild surprise tonight, otherwise its on Dubs to pitch a shutout and magically assists on the game winning goal. 
    • Saw that Morrisey is suspended for tonight.  Really too bad they missed the call during the game.  Should've been a 5 min major and a game misconduct.  Really would've changed the entire game IMO.  There are lots of times I wish Boogy was still around.   Staal needs to be checked for a concussion and Koivu needs to be checked into a retirement home.     Seems like we can pull up last years playoff and offseason threads and just ride that until October.  Same story, can't compete with a couple heavy blue liners and can't score.
