      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 .

Trout fishing near Walker?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. I am headed up to northern Minnesota (Laporte/Walker area) at the end of this week. I was wondering if there are any trout streams or lakes in the area. I typically fly fish for bass and pike on my Minnesota trips, but wanted a little change of pace this year. Any tips/direction would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Try the Kabekona River near LaPorte for brookies. Send me a quick email at ginner26@gmail.com and I can get you a few more details. I was up there in July and had a little luck.

The first post mentioned Diamond lake. I found that one about 4 or 5 years ago. I just went up there about 3 to 4 weeks ago. and got a few trout. ive only been there about 4 times. but on dnr lake finder its the most stocked lake up there. You will need a little guidenss. You can stop at the BP by northern lights or get some before you get there. heres the directions. On 371 shortly after you pass Hackensack youll see the lower 10 mile lake sign keep going straight on 371 then you will see the sign for upper 10 mile as soon as you see that sign look on your right side of the road for woodtick rd. this will be a dirt road once you get all the way on it. the lake is 4.7 miles back down the dirt road. but will seem farther. theres one catch you have to make one left turn and there are a couple roads that connect. just go to where its a four way the only four way on the road an make a left and go about a mile an a half to two and you will dead and at the lake. the four way is not a even four way but you can tell you could go four ways. It was hot when I was up there so I wasnt getting them like I have when it is cooler. But did manage a few. Good Luck. If you go let us know how you did

Teepee and Hazel were always pretty good. I would call the Walker fisheries office and find out how many fish got stocked where. I think one of their designated trout lakes is getting chemically reclaimed this fall after someone released some game fish that took off. Might want to avoid that one smile

    • Lotsa rib comps do that for overnites low 'n slow, if they're doing briquettes. Always worked for me.
    • What does use the minion method mean?
    • Folks  use the minion method in smokers with no issues.
    • I agree. Don't use kingsford unless you put it in after it has turned all white. There are chemicals on it to make it light easier. 
    • I saved about $200 by picking up a used one.  It was a clean unit, just a couple minor scratches on the side.  It's been flawless. I knew what I was looking for and when I found it I was there within hours.  That is the game when you're looking to save money on those generators. I've never seen a retail sale on them worth going out of the way for.  
    • Just make sure you get it going good first without fluid or make sure the fluid is burned off.   I tried charcoal in my electric smoker once and didn't get the fluid burned off enough before I put the snack sticks in and the taste of the lighter fluid soaked into the casing pretty good and rendered it inedible. 
    • Nah, not but hurt at all.  
    • Welcome to the forum.  Could you give us a little more details on what you would be jigging for in the Philippines? 
    • RRmawi, Welcome to the forums.  I don't have one and by no replies it looks like not many others do as well? Sounds like you mite have some corrosion or wear happening in the connections and controllers.  Did you try replacing the batteries in the remote already? You could try some dielectric grease on all the connections to see if it's a contact issue. Or some Electicric contact spray on the switch's.  If you got some water in the motor from a leaking seal that could also affect the current flow through the system as well. Good luck and let us know what you find out.
    • I've been using gas grills at home and at the camper for some time now.  I do really miss the Smokey flavor of charcoal but the speed of gas to get a dinner done and back out on the lake is nice. I do wrap some hickory up in tin foil to smoke on the gas grills when doing ribs or other longer cook meat though. Lately I have been wondering how wrapping up some kingsford charcoal in tin foil or trying some in the smoker to get that great charcoal flavor would work? Anyone else ever try it for smoking on a gas grill wrapped in tin foil or in a smoking tube or in a smoker instead of wood?
