      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 .

Clint Converse Campground...How is it?

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys,

Any info on Clint Converse Campground's Group Camp?

It's located in Land O' Lakes forest on Lake Washburn. Planning a group camp with a few friends. I'm sure there are nice fish in there since I looked it up on the MN DNR Lakefinder. I'm wondering if it's family friendly...since that is not what we are looking for, not that family friendly is bad per se, but farther North is just too far this year and we would rather fish and relax w/o kids!

Any info would be appreciated...

Thanks!

I stayed there for a couple of days about 3 years ago, so have no up to date info. I remember there are 2 loops, not sure about the group camp. The lower loop had a bunch of mature Norway pines and had some scenic quality to it. The lake has a lot of nice structure, you have to wind through a couple shallow bays from where the campground is. Not many of the sites had a view of the lake, which was too bad. The time we stayed there we were the only ones in the entire campgroud, which was great. I assume it might be fairly quiet there most of the time.

Thanks for the info Rodric. From your report, looks like we'll be headed up here. BTW...How did you do on the fishing? We'll probabaly be targeting bass mostly, but anything on the end of the line is always good too.

We didn't do a lot of fishing so can't help you out much there. I do remember catching a couple bass though. I have not personaly fished them, but I know a lot of people consider both Thunder and Roosevelt good fishing lakes as well and would be a short trailer distance from where you are staying. All 3 are very pretty with lots of structure and good survey numbers.

    • 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"
