      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 Lizzie Roundup - Detroit Lakes/Pelican Rapids Area GTG

Recommended Posts

Jan 10th - Lake Lizzie Roundup - MAP

Hosted by: J.P. Lipton “DEADhead” roughfisher@roughfisher.com, & Peter Prodanov “Fisherdog19” pprodanov@valescomortgage.com

Come join the fun again this year chasing crappies, sunfish, walleye, bass, and northern pike on Lake Lizzie, Saturday January 10, 2009. We will meet at the public access at 0900 am.

Lake Lizzie is located 17 miles south of Detroit Lakes, and 7 miles north of Pelican Rapids. The public access is located one mile east off of US Highway 59, along the west shoreline of the lake. From US Hwy 59, take 460th St east for 1 mile. When you come to the “T” at the end of the road, the public access is located 100 feet to the right of the junction, on 220th Ave. We will wait at the access until 0930 am, and then proceed on to the ice as a group. Latecomers are welcome to meet us out on the ice.

From the MN DNR Lake information report:

Lizzie Lake is a popular angling lake during both the open water and ice fishing seasons. The lake is best known for its excellent bluegill, black crappie, largemouth bass, northern pike, and walleye fishing. Data from recent lake surveys indicate these species are abundant and have good size distributions.

Feel free to bring whatever you'd like to eat and drink; food and beverage will not be provided. There will be snowmobiles, and likely ATVs, available to give people rides on and off the ice, if ice/snow conditions do not allow for driving.

This event is open to everyone; bring your wife, children, friends and anyone else you would like. This is a great opportunity to meet and fish with other Fishing Minnesota members and a chance to meet new people and share fishing tips and stories.

Any questions regarding this event should be directed to the GTG thread on the Detroit Lakes & Pelican Rapids Area forum. Check in for more info and last minute details as the event approaches.

We hope to see you there!

After this weekend's snow, it's going to be tough going unless you have a sled. We'll try and get a better assessment on the conditions later this week. Regardless, there will be guys out their with sleds who could tow out a portable and shuttle people out on to the ice if we can't get a road opened up by next weekend.

Thanks D, We'll be up there regardless of conditions. Probably will need a tow and shuttle. We usually go out and left of the access to the deep water.

    • Ended up making some non-breaded steak cubes (aka "Chislic" here in SoDak) that turned out friggin awesome. I took a sirloin tip roast, trimmed it up, and cut it into 1" cubes. I then vacuum sealed them for 6 hrs in a little olive oil, worchester, garlic, and coarse black pepper. I sprinkled on a little lawry's before putting them in. I did two batches... one batch "medium well" for the wife and kids, and one batch medium rare for me. Medium well took 10 min, Medium rare was 6. Turned out awesome! Even the Medium well was still tender and juicy.
    • So what you're saying is if we ever hear him say "I'm going out to the garage to give my blade a love rub" we shouldn't be too worried?
    • I have had 2 of these for a year or so. They work great for fries, tator tots, onion rings, shrimp,chicken strips.and basically anything breaded when you buy it. And they don't need any oil. Only OK if you bread them yourself. For those I spray Pam on them. The only thing is breaded fish fillets are only so so. I still prefer deep frying them. Fish is the only thing I still deep fry. I indulge my self there. Just not as good as deep frying. Pretty much everything else I air fry.
    • You missed the part about "All my blades are hand rubbed with love" 
    • I drink schells fairly regularly. I  consider them in the "craft" category.   Snowstorm is always interesting.  I had sort of forgotten about it until just now.  I need to pick some up.
    • Coulda stopped the story there. Already too much work!
    • It wasn't easy. I had to marry a Finn and be in good standing with MIL to get my foot in the door.   I then meet Matti Nykänen at a Pikkujoulu Party  when he noticed I had a new Nokia phone and asked to see it.  We talked for hours about our ski jumping days over a loaf of Pulla. Later the conversation turned to ice fishing and Nils Master.  His uncle was a sharpener in Finland and planned to come to the USA and sharpen. Said he could make a lot of money.   Turned out he wasn't authorized by Nils Master and his true intent was to smuggle brown bread in the US and in doing so lost his visa.  It was a huge embarrassment to his family and to Finland.   Finland needed a sharpener in the US but I was a Norwegian.   After some arm twisting by my MIL I was allowed to be trained but I had to sign a sworn document not to pass anything on to either Norway or the Russians. Even then I wasn't allowed to see how the blade was made, only how to sharpen and reshape a blade that needed reshaping.  Retire,  exercise and a Finnish Brown Bread is the key to a long life and you don't need to smuggle it. I order it online from New York and it keeps good for years.    
    • I drink Grain Belt and Schell's all the time. Buy Local!  
    • Wild playing very well in all facets of the game right now...fun to watch...Toronto is no slouch even without Matthews.
    • And if you went to Italy, they have all that stuff that is bitter.  It is a matter of taste for sure.   BTW, hops is (or was) added to beer as a preservative as well as a flavor.   Personally I don't care for that weird stuff, but do like an IPA on occasion, or a Grain Belt for old time's sake.
