      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 .

I'm trying to plan a weekend in the Apostles for fishing. Last year on a whim, we took off to Stockton Island and camped out there. I loved it, but the boss was a little nervous with the bears, no showers and the 30mph winds when we woke up the next day. I'm thinking for all these reasons camping on the mainland may be best.

I have looked into staying at Big Bay State Park but they don't sound too accommodating to boats. Is it possible to get into the lagoon and beach the boat?

Would like to have something where I could leave the boat beached or tied up in front of a lakeside campsite. How is the Apostle Island campground in Bayfield? Do they have lakeside camping? How far are they from the access? Any other spots close to good laker fishing?

Thanks for the suggestion SuperiorFishGuy. How is the fishing over there? Many nets in that area? I was amazed last summer at the number of barely marked (milk jugs,some painted black) nets around Stockton. Was thinking of trying the flats area this year...

Apostle Island campground is by the golf course with no lake access. Dalyrymple (sp?) in Bayfield is on the lake but has no safe harbor. I think your best bet is Little Sand Bay. I have caught lakers around sand Island, but I'm not an experienced deep water troller. You could also look into Washburn West Side Park. They have some camping with lake access. I'd be careful about leaving your boat beached. If the winds picked up it could be nasty.
