      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 .

Morson area resorts

Recommended Posts

Anyone have any recommendations for resorts in the Morson area? I have never fished LOW and would like to do a quick get-away trip somewhere. Probably be me, my dog, and one other person. Bringing my own boat, food, etc.

Your two best choices would be Mylie's and Buena Vista. I prefer Mylie's but there are as many people that prefer Buena Vista as there are people that prefer Mylie's.

Go to www.morson.org and click on members for many resorts in the Morson area.

You have your choice of drive-to or boat-in, more than a dozen places.

Thdre's also a decent campground near Bergland, former provincial park now run by the first nations.

I like Buena Vista and Mylies - both on land/shore. They're nothing spectacular, but both are nice and will take care of you. Duck Bay is also a good choice and I think the Obabikon Bay Resort would be fun to stay at (no experience with them, but have the original owners back, which is good).

Thanks for the quick replies guys. Now, having never been there, am I going to get into some easy learning curve fishing? The reason I was looking here was that it looks like it is more protected from high winds than the American side, plus it isn't really all that far away. The resorts seem to be pretty reasonable as well.

Wild Thing, about that campsite, is it "safe" to stay there? Will I run into any issues of theft, etc?

I'd stay at the resorts above because your protected to from wind a whole lot more. IF the wind is 10-20 out of the west in that bay the park is in . . . well, that's LOTW at it's finest.

If you're fishing in the next few weeks, I'd say the curve is small. For trolling bouncers on the reefs: medium - medium heavy baitcast rod and reel (ideally with "flippin" switch), I like Power Pro line, 1-1.5-2.0 oz bouncers, gold-silver-chartruese spinners, see above for bait. Bring a spinning rod for jigs and one medium baitcast rod for trolling cranks.

Have the resort highlight some reefs and enjoy!

Shorelunch is right, if you stay at the north end of Morson (at the end of Hwy. 621) or on an island you'll be much more likely to get out at any time....

Ohhh, I leave in 3 hours! I'm already landing the first fish!

    • I bought a bag of the hearts and chips because I got sick of the mass of sunflower shells on the ground. Now, it’s only been a couple days, but it sure seems like I have a lot less cardinal activity at my feeders since making the switch. Do cardinals prefer the shelled seeds? 
    • I have a very short driveway (2 car lengths) and I always have 2 cars on it. Couple times a year the city says I cant block the sidewalk. (There is no sidewalk there) But they say thats where it would be if there was one so I cant block it   LOL
    • Ill bump you into 2018. I just picked up a WR250F and put plates on it. Not sure how much riding I will get done now though with the house build.
    •   Just my thoughts on that:   You’ll be glad you poured the edge thicker if you’re planning to stay there awhile.  A good, stable slab will reduce wall cracks and keep your door jambs plumb.     And don’t skimp on the insulation.  My current home is slab on grade with in floor heat.  It has 2 inch insulation under it but not up the side of the slab.  I’ll eventually add that additional inslulation around the perimeter.  The ground is a heat sponge.  Heat migrates to cold no matter what direction it goes.  The insulation will pay for itself in a short amount of time.  The higher the R value, the better.   Good luck. It sounds like an interesting project.
    •   Suzanna, if you had not saw the signs in the ditch on either side of your driveway in the past nor had a snowmobile groomer come through there. It sounds like one of the local snowmobile clubs may have added that stretch of ditch to their trail system. You may inquire around the area which snowmobile club is grooming and maintaining the trails in the area and talk to them. They can talk to their members about driveway jumping but they really can't stop some of the young nonmember folks around there from doing it. Please do not do anything like icing down the ditch, blocking it with things like logs, wire or anything else. If someone gets injured as a result of something you did, you will be liable. 
    •   Im pretty sure we are going to pour the edge thicker but I can not find that it is required. I know we have to insulate down and out from the outside edge but cant find the specifics for that either.   Thanks
    • Still some time to get your entry in!!
    • Yep. That is standard procedure for floating slabs. 
    • Thank you for the responses. I do know it’s a right of wayband not blockable...except...I seen one coming and did park in the area after work this week.  In a split second she/he turned around and went the other way. My truck would fill the approach but I only had the car that day.—this response is what I’m trying to avoid. knoppers-there was no bank there...there were little dots through the snow that was pulled back onto the driveway. Heck, he was up near the tree line. Wanderer-it’s a small rural area, I’ll be the ... The snow and ice is melting down to the tar today, they drove in it anyway. It’s 130 am and ya...time for jumping. Thanks for all the answers. I don’t feel alone in feeling it’s rude. That helps. 
    • I would think so, it would be no different than parking on the shoulder of the road. my commit was more related to people that put up barriers, to keep others from crossing there approach.
