      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 .

Melgeorges resort on Elephant Lake

Recommended Posts

Well, for anyone looking for a nice getaway from all the hustle and bustle of the every day grind, take a good look at Melgeorges resort on Elephant lake.

The cabins seem very nice with some rustic log cabins. All the convieneces of home included. Just bring your food and drink or maybe relax a bit more and go to the lodge overlooing the lake and enjoy a meal.

As far as the fishing in Elephant, we fished for crappies and I can say this, some very nice crappies running near that 15" mark with many perch, walleye and all some of those hard fighting smallmouth.

Check out Melgeorges for a fun getaway with the family or friends.

All I can say is that the cabins are very nice in a private natural setting with a gorgeous view of lightly developed Elephant Lake. Not only was the fishing very good but it's also great for those folks wanting to hike, snowmobile or observe nature.

We found loads of respectable crappies, walleyes and jumbo perch. It's definitely a great location for those who looking to get away from it all and relax.

Talk about a slice of heaven 10 miles down a scenic drive off of a main highway. Secluded, gorgeous, well kept, comfortable, and lets sneak in some great fishing.... Try to beat it, might be tough. If you don't want the crazy hustle and bustle of a lake with multiple resorts, if you want a cabin with wonderful settings, if you want to get away from your busy life and just relax, plus get some great fishing with great fish like we found. Elephant Lake and Melgeorges Resort are first class and a perfect get away.

If you want to fish, snowmobile, hike, or just get away for the weekend this is the place to go.

The cabins have all the comforts of home with a real nice rustic feel to them. Secluded from the hustle and bustle of every day life on a lake that, as stated before, has some very respectable crappie fishing. I spent a weekend there and didn't want to leave.

If you're looking for a place to get away, catch some real nice crappies, and just plain relax, Melgeorges is the place to go.

    • A bit off subject and I love firing up the smoker for a little meat centric voodoo as much as anyone but time and seasoning costs money and sometimes I find that by the time you buy everything we use to bring,inject,rub,produce and trap the smoke and otherwise cover these lesser cuts to make them taste right we could have had a nice steak on a grill.  
    • I'd love to show these pics to my wife but if I did, she'd just throw our house away!  Excellent project!  Well done. 
    • Went to Ely yesterday to winterize ours and replace the vent domes.  I looked closer at the caulking in various areas and wasn't comfortable with what I was seeing, plus it really needed a pressure washing.  I'm pretty sure the water heater is on the fritz too.  Hooked it to the truck and hauled it home for service.  A 40 foot box in yesterday's wind and rain for 4 hours was interesting but I'm glad I can get everything taken care of that I've been wanting to change and just bring it back up in the spring, ready for fun.
    • Looks great, but LRG has a basement window in his.
    • Takes a shot of cure to get that ring, if you don't have a source of carbon monoxide to mess with the enzymes////
    • I like the galvanized tin!
    • Looks awesome, great smoke ring. Was it a little more tender this go around?
    • You sir, did a great job! Enjoy your house... 
    • Did a few off season projects waiting for Ice. - Underwater camera, Fish Finder, Wheel house mods and the latest converting a 2 cycle Jiffy Lite 90 to an ION battery auger. Got the auger off Craiglist for $10, Drill for $15. Second stage of gear box is a 5 to 1 reduction so got the auger blade to turn at about 250 RPM which I feel is an ideal speed. Gear reduction also doubled the torque of the motor drive. Planning to use the Dewalt 20V ION battery as I already have charger and now converting one of the 1.5 AH batteries to either 9 or 12 AH.  If anyone needs a mid 80's Jiffy Lite 90 motor and clutch PM me. Has great compression, never tried to start it.  Price somewhere between free and a gift. If you did a project this summer, would you care to share them?

    • You don't get a smoke ring like that with liquid smoke either
