      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 .

Lake Bemidji?

Recommended Posts

Any tips guys? I go to the university up here, and some time in the near future I'd like to chase some ski's. Especially because some of my friends of the opposite gender want to come with too, so I'd obviously really appreciate any and all information/tips/tricks you guys have. I'll post this in the Bemidji forum too, but this forum gets more traffic. Thanks guys!

I went to school up there for a few years, too bad I didn't muskie fish specifically then. I had a few of them bite me off though. I'd try the point in the park right by the school there, but watch out for crazy drunk jeep drivers putting their car in the lake at 2am!!!

Also, IIRC, the west side is known as muskie alley or something...I might have that wrong though.

Lake Bemidji has been a favorite lake for me to hit but don't get out there as much as before.

I like to fish the rocks, point as mentioned, reeds pretty much everywhere and unknown spots will hold fish. Get a lakemaster map and you can see different things and will help you out. My go to bait was the 9" jake in natural colors and small size bucktails. Good Luck

Concentrate on the North End (primarily north of diamond bar. The Bull Rushes should hold some fish a little south east of Diamond Bar as well as well as the bull rushes on the west side. Spinnerbaits and Boogermans should be good. Being new to the lake, concentrate on the west side like mentioned above. The NE corner holds some fish as well. And I would make sure to fish the Rock Pile in the middle of the north basin at sun up and sun down for sure and there is no reason why you shouldn't see some fish durring the day too.

Throw the big stuff, the bigger the better right now.

Also, go into Bluewater and talk to Mark. Great guy that will set you up with what you need.

Get ready to see some BIG fish!

Good Luck

I plan on fishing Leech Sat and Sun and I am really looking forward to it. I don't know what the weather is calling for but it should be good. You guys comming up north this weekend?

Not this one but 4 days over MEA - kids off school. Think you can smuggle a few new baits in under the expense account, you know, things you just had to have? Good luck...

    • Good for you! Hard to get them wimmen away from that "put it back on the rack;  it ain't yet black!" mindset....
    • I deep fried a wild turkey yesterday to almost the recommended temp and thought it was way over done and on the verge of being a waste.  My wife thought it was great. I carved the domestic turkey in the roaster before the magic button popped and temp was barely140.  It was fantastic.  My wife was apprehensive but had to agree it was just right. I m slowly getting her off the “It ain’t cooked till it’s brown all the way through”.  
    • Yep, I'll be hunting off an on during the season. Plan on hunting Saturday afternoon.
    • Assuming you are hunting MN, the regs aren't super clear about quartering, but if you read them it sounds like quartering is fine as long as the deer is registered first.  If you don't have cell service to accomplish that before you quarter you need to keep the head attached to one of the quarters.  You could still get it done it might just make for an awkward load on your back.  I would also recommend a good pack for doing this, or your going to kill your back and shoulders.  I run a Mystery Ranch and have had about 90-100lbs in it many times while training and hunting.  That should mean even a big deer would be manageable in two trips for one person.   I hunt some pretty nasty country, so my pack and a couple game bags ride in my truck all season so I'm prepared for anything.  If you go that route consider getting yourself a pair of trekking poles as well.  They don't break the bank and they make a huge difference when you have a heavy load on your back.  As a bonus my MR Cabinet also holds my stand, and climbing sticks really nice when packing that in a long ways.
    • Ayup, sure went quiet fast.   Figgered that.  
    • I certainly hope ya saved me a piece of yer chocolate cake, though....
    • Or you would get this for even bring up another Site, Product or C/List.  (Note from Admin, please read rules before posting again) Old timer that pal.
    • Nah, if they want to ignore science, not do their own research on pasteuization, and blindly follow the government's dumbed down dictum I am not going to worry about it. I presume they eat their burgers well done and their eggs hard anyway.
    • sounds to me like the temp was to high, the fat should not be coming out like that.....
    • You just watch Del whack what's-his-face into line about the art of safe sousing......"practice safe sousing...bag yer meat".
