      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 .

Hey Doop,

Barry is a pretty good guy, I see him at the sports shows once in awhile. I fished over there a few times when I was younger before I bought my own resorts. If you need any info on laker fishing just let me know.

Dont be afraid to go with Barry on your ice fishing trip. Hes a straight shooter on what to expect, so if you like what he has to offer, you'll have a good time. Myself and my family has known him for many years dealing with him both on buissness and personal items, great guy.

thanks guys...I appreciate it...I know both of you have great operations. I really have no idea which one to look further in to. lol I have finally convinced my dad to tag along on an ice fishing trip. It's been over 20 years since I've ice fished with him. (i'm very excited!) Needless to say I'm hopeful that we'll get into some big pike wherever we go. If you want....feel free to e-mail me with what you have to offer. jensenmd@hotmail.com

Thanks for the replies!

We have been going up there the past few years over pres day weekend. We've always had at least one day of our trip at -20 degrees but the fishing has been pretty good. We do lots of running with sleds but have had very good walleyes and trout. It a very fun trip. Browns do a good job to help their customers any way they can it seems.

There is so much water to fish out of Brown's resort..lakers in clearwater, greytrout and white otter, walleyes nearby, and if you do go make sure you ask about the splake and brookie lakes nearby. We always take a part day and hit them. Lots of diversity. Does seem like both times I was there it never got above zero tho and the last morning there a couple years ago was -31, brrrrrrr grin

Ive only been up there during soft water season but Barry and Carol do whatever they can to help you out. The fishing has been excelent but its been years since i caught a laker...but thats because i havnt targeted them for years wink. it is a great opperation and you should not have a problem with them at all

some of the lakers that have been taken through the ice there are easily over 40lbs

    • Lots of bears being seen around Princeton not on baits just roaming around.
    • Because Sleeper's always have had good produce...and obviously, I just went there. I went to school with them, know how they do their produce. They been around a long time. Wouldn't have  4-5 people  standing there buying if it was lousy. I had to wait the other day. Word gets around fast on small stands.Your statement applies to just about anything...sometimes a restaurant has a good meal, next time it's mediocre. You'd still go there, right? You're going to have some years the corn is better than others, you can't change the weather. This happens to be a good year for the sweetcorn, both places told me.  What would be different at Seneca? It still comes out of a field there, too. Who knows how fresh it is? I'd go with a pickup truck just pulling in, with the corn still cool and damp, before I'd grab some from a pile at Seneca. That's the only time I go, early am, when it's fresh.  OK, so do four ears at about 6 mns then....ya can handle that, right? All I intended was to give ya a tip where to grab some good corn...
    • I cook more than two at a time.   And how can you recommend someplace you haven't been to in a decade?   Like I said, I have gotten good corn there and I have gotten mediocre corn there.   Might be fresh picked, but sometimes I think maybe the field was past its prime when they fresh picked it.   Ever try the corn from Seneca?   They have a little office across 3rd Ave from the plant where they sell corn sometimes.      
    • Because it was about a decade ago I was on that goofy end of town. I knew it. Now yer gonna  waste time fooling around with that souse-o-matic on that poor corn, when two ears in the 'wave, in a covered glass dish with some water for around 3 minutes comes out perfectly delicious. 
    • Let us know by first ice - just saying.  But he is great to work with so don't get me wrong.
    • 3 smallies in 30 min yesterday. 
    • That is the truck that I always buy from, they park at the detailing place that used to be a car wash.  Why were you talking about Super America? They haven't been there for a decade. But either one would be a pretty long drive at the moment. Might have to try sous vide on some...when I get there.

    • He'll still go to Sly-Vee and buy it.
