      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

    • I'm a little nervous to watch the game.  My 4 year old daughter has taken an interesting in "the purple team" as she calls them and she's looking forward to watching the game with me this weekend.  I'm not sure I can keep my language clean enough for 4 year old ears if the vikings live up to their reputation.  If they win I'm sure I'll scare her when I jump off the couch and run around the house screaming.  
    •   Well, I don't have that kind of time in the morning so pan fried will have to do.
    • like that stuff better off the grill....
    • The Vikings have to win.  I can't imagine having to deal with the Eagle fans who will be here for the Super Bowl if they win.   The Eagles/Falcons game last week was pretty sloppy.  Neither team looked great.  I know the Eagles regular season record is impressive, but look at their schedule/results this year.  The win against the Panthers in week 6 is a good win and the week 14 win on the road against the Rams is impressive.  The rest of their schedule was horrible.   1 Sep 10 PHI 30 @ WAS 17 2 Sep 17 PHI 20 @ KC 27 3 Sep 24 NYG 24 @ PHI 27 4 Oct 01 PHI 26 @ LAC 24 5 Oct 08 ARI 7 @ PHI 34 6 Oct 12 PHI 28 @ CAR 23 7 Oct 23 WAS 24 @ PHI 34 8 Oct 29 SF 10 @ PHI 33 9 Nov 05 DEN 23 @ PHI 51 10 Bye 11 Nov 19 PHI 37 @ DAL 9 12 Nov 26 CHI 3 @ PHI 31 13 Dec 03 PHI 10 @ SEA 24 14 Dec 10 PHI 43 @ LA 35 15 Dec 17 PHI 34 @ NYG 29 16 Dec 25 OAK 10 @ PHI 19 17 Dec 31 DAL 6 @ PHI 0      
    •   I picked the wrong month to take a break from drinking.  
    • I decided to have the breakfast of champions this morning.....  
    • google Food VacBags. almost missed your post.  remember to type @ in front   of user name and then that person gets a notification. @Grainbelt    I just got another order. love them! 
    • Eyeguy, You posted a great place to get vacuum seal bags. I bought from there and was pretty happy with them. I need more but can't remember the online business name. Could you please remind me?
    • With technology now you can just drop it in the hopper and either watch it later if they win or delete it if things go south.
