      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!

    • To answer your question, at peak eclipse I measured 3500 LUX outside, which is brighter than thick clouds. To fish, what happened today was a typical cloud moved in front of the sun.
    • I did, but didn't find anything. Not sure I am doing a proper keyword search however. I believe it is called a termination cap. 
    • So, what is your training that makes you more of an expert than the Cardiac Rehab center of the Mayo Clinic?   You got the 6 week certificate in sales from the Chiropractic Institute?   Seriously, do you have a degree in a health field?  Have you even had any serious scientific training in any field?  Last I recall, didn't you work selling gadgets to Chiropractors or something?  I know you are a big fan of the subluxations and spinal adjustments to cure cancer and diabetes and prevent autism as touted by straight chiropractors.   
    • Here's some footage from the last couple weeks in central and northern WI. Gotta work at it to find the big ones, but managed to find some nice ones lately!  
    • Yup. Like a shopping cart.  
    • Well, being you are not engaging your hamstrings on that treadmill, and you're TRAINING on it!!, you can pretty much guarantee your feet sliding out from underneath you, slipping on the ice next time you encounter it.  Thank you treadmill, best piece of equipment in the gym, for an orthopedic surgeon.   Let me guess, you like to walk slow on it, so its good for you.....?  
    • Thanks RD!  Good info. That's an interesting technique with the Chatterbait.  I will try it.  If you don't mind -- what kind of trailer do you like with the Chatterbait for that technique?  There will be 3 of us fishing so it will a little tight.  Probably will only bring 3 rods...  I am thinking a Jig rod, T-rig rod (plan to try a Nekko rig with this as well)  and one moving bait rod (Spinnerbait, Chatterbait, Buzzbait, Frog, Cranks, etc.)  The great thing about Ottertail county (like others in Mn), there are a thousand lakes... we will hit 2 or 3 a day.  If we have good conditions (low pressure/moderate wind) we will probably try Musky on Battle Lake.
    • Mahi are hard to catch in Minnesota.  Specialized equipment is required.
