      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 .

Vacation help in the Hayward/Spooner/Rice Lake area

Recommended Posts

Next summer about this time (mid July) we are planning on taking a family vacation with one or two other couples.

There will be some kids on the trip- all under 8 years old.

The women won't fish alot- so they will be looking for other things to do.

So, I guess I am looking for a place that has the all/some of the following:

1. I would prefer a musky lake- or one real near by. Size of muskies is no real concern- I'm the only musky guy in the group (at this time-however, one of the other guys catches a few and that will change!)

2. Would prefer a clear water type lake- but not a necessity

3. Good fishing for panfish/bass/walleyes, etc- for the kids and women.

4. Something more to do on the site- playground, game room, etc.

5. Good sized town nearby for off times/rainy periods.

6. Nice clean place- would like it to have a large cabin so all families could fit into one- 6 adults and 4 kids. We are not looking for the most extravagant place in the world, but a decent rate would be great too!

7. Good people running the resort.

Thanks for the help guys!

I'd recommend getting the musky fishing wisconsin guidebook put out by (i think) Sportsmans Connection

find one near Hayward that looks decent. You could always go to the Chippewa Flowage, but thats like an hour from Hayward I think

I should have said that I've fished a bunch of the lakes in the Hayward area, so I know about most of the musky lakes..I have never fished that area for other species- so that is where I am hoping the help will come in, along with the other amenities.

Do Lost Land and Teal have resorts on them? That is a nice area- minus the landing on LLL- at least when I was there a year or so ago.

Thanks!

Lost Land Lake Lodge is the only one I know of there. Can't tell you much about the accommodations but if you wanted to water ski or go tubing, that would be out since there's a 10 mph speed limit of both lakes. It's also a long ways from town, close to an hours drive.

There's Lakeview Resort on Grindstone and Lac Courte Orielles has Pine Shores and Trails End Resort. Those two lakes are 20 minutes from Hayward and 10 minutes from the casino. There's also a couple of resorts on Round Lake which is a great lake for swimming, skiing, and pretty decent fishing plus you'd only be 10 minutes from the Chippewa Flowage.

    • Got skunked. Gave up after the second day and went grouse hunting instead. Had better luck doing that
    • Real nice night Monday night.  International Space Station was doing a fly-by.  When it topped the horizon, it was over southeast Alberta and when it crawled into the earth's shadow it was over the east edge of Wisconsin in just a little over 4 minutes.  Not all of these have the same white balance setting.  I messed with it to see what I liked better.  The tree was light painted with a small LED flashlight.  Opinions and critiques are welcome.
    • I have a 3.2 L Cooks Essentials digital that I bought first. Not big enough. So I bought a 5.2L manual Bella. You definetly want to get a bigger one. As for manual or not.....less to go wrong with a manual. My Bella holds more food than the smaller one and works great. I use the Cook's Essentials only when I have 2 things to make. Plus the manual costs less. The Bella sells for about  $75. Digitals will sell for over $100. Four other members of my family now also have  them.
    • I guess I started this thread but never gave model name lol. I have the cozyna model air fryer its been great unit and so far non stick surface has been holding up well in dishwasher after every use. Super easy clean up.
    • We really didn't shop around much.... Just bought one off of amazon with good reviews
