      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 .

Morson Travel

Recommended Posts

Is there an ice road out of Morson? How far does it go? Does it go to Miles? My buddy was telling me there was a few years back and were able to fish both crappies and walleyes off of that road. Just wondering if he is full of it. Thanks guys!

The only ice road in the Morson area is from Gills Marina to the Red Marker north of Hanson Bay. There is no road to Miles.

Bill,

There is a snowmobile trail that follows the "South track" from Hanson Bay to Miles Bay. Marked with pine boughs & an occasional stake. Not sure if it continues past Miles as that is as far as I've followed it.

The pine bough trail runs up to the entrance to Arrow Lake just north of Grassy Narrows. I didn't see anything else marked up in Miles last weekend.

No plowed roads, but guys were driving 4wd pickups in some areas on Saturday on top of the packed snow. I wouldn't do it, but they were...

Snowmobiling was perfect, however, never better...

they did plow some roads for the derby but they go just as far as the point out from Mylie's. I seen quite a few pickups coming from the Manitou island area. you could go anywhere out there in the open with a 4wd. Someone took a rut plow and went out towards Fox island. as far as sled travel its the best i seen so far. there is about 4-5 inches of powder. so look out for them snowbanks. there is another derby up there on March 21. going for that one.

i didnt get anything at the derby plus I was a little late. i only got to fish the last 1 1/2 hr. i had my portable out there but there was other people using it. there was little breeze out of the west but I endured the conditions. had more fun running around and burning gas. Sounds like dad won some stuff on the raffle or something. he had a few fish but they was small. head back up on the 21st for the other derby. they got bigger prizes. still not sure when i am leaving yet. just waiting for work to call. i hate when they cant make up their mind. oh well.....hey good luck up there and I will let dad know you are heading up and that you are gonna use my portable

    • Looks like ill be taken a buddy out this wed. I enjoy calling one in for somebody just as much as shooting one. Hopefully everything works out for this is only his 2nd year at it. Last year i took him and he shot a dandy bird with a 11 1/4 beard and 1 1/8" spurs and weighed a little over 23#'s.   
    • Very impressive and unexpected win. Would be nice for this to be the start of Houston’s playoffs jinx.
    • Way to go Don!
    •   thanks!!!  It's on the peg board!!!  I would have forgotten!!!!  
    • Bird down!  Ryan tagged out yesterday on the first day of the year he could hunt. It's a pretty nice Tom with 3/4" sure and an 8 3/4" beard. I'll get some pics up and it entered when I can.

    • I took a short ride the other day but still a little chilly out in the breeze. Streets were pretty good as they were out sweeping them before the last snow. Saw a lot of bikes out the last couple of days. Don't forget to put your new licence tag on as I almost did.
