      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

ya, stuck in class. 7 more weeks but it's not so bad. They are putting me up in the Hilton and giving me a pretty good expence account so I think I'll survive. 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...

    •   Member of ADVRider. Rode with lots of guys on there. I just put out a feeler on here once in a while.
    • You ever check out www.thumpertalk.com Lots of guys in your area.
    • I think that summer one is in the regs, 75 feet as I recall.   
    • I am no expert either but putting my trust in the builder. Talking to him, there will only be enough lumber to screw the sheetrock to. There will be no 16" on center studwalls. He has done several like this with no problems. The "Gurts" are attached to the poles and you could saw the poles off at the bottom and move the whole building.
    • Like Leech said, it appears that a grant in aid trail is running through your area. I would urge you to contact the club president or another representative and try to work out a solution. They may be able to even re-route the trail to avoid your driveway but you will not know unless you engage in a civil discussion with a representative of the club. Just let them know you have concerns and see if an agreement can be had.    I would be surprised if the club doesn't have a landowners event every fall that you could attend and talk to club members as well to keep reminding them each year of your concerns.
    • Forgot this was a day game, missed it but happy we got the two points. We have been holding our spots and even have some games in hand on some other teams. If we can just keep this pace up we are in, but here is hoping we get hot towards the end of the year. Would be nice for a change. 
    • Nice win this afternoon on the road...things are getting interesting....need others to keep stumbling and we may not have to worry about a Wild Card.
    • That's the problem in restrictor plate races--stay on the gas and hit the car in front or lift and be hit from behind.
    • No doubt!   We didn’t have to wonder if there was actual contact though after Dillon said he had a run and just stayed in the gas.   Is what it is.  And that’s the difference I noticed.
    • So no sill plate for the walls on the perimeter then.  OK.     Again, not an expert so whatever your guys say and you’re comfortable with... I don’t know all your construction details. I - sandy County Is just that; sandy.  So it’s not too tough to get a good base.   My experience, as it relates to this, has just been based on building a 36x48 wood framed garage in Isanti County.  8 inch block on the perimeter to support 12 foot sidewalls of 2x6 construction.  My buddy that sold me the lumber said the project was only 200 feet short on interior walls from being a house.  After adding in the attic square footage it had more than my house.  Going with a pole building frame is the game changer.   Again, best of luck. It would be interesting to me to see the completed project.
