      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 .

Nielson's Fly In Lodge on Rowan Lake

Recommended Posts

We have had quite a few groups over the past few years that have tried it, both summer and winter. Depending on what you are looking for, they have good trout and muskie. Only negative is its a flyin with 3 other lodges on it and you are limited on the amount of weight you can fly in with. That's the comment I heard from our new guests that tried it in the summer. In the winter it's a nice quite trout lake, just a long ride to get into it. If you try it good luck.

My dad had good luck there muskie fishing. He used to tell me how ridiculously clear Rowan was. Isanglass Lake is nearby and even clearer. Great area there near LOW!

Have been up there probably 12 times in the past 10 years. We have boated a 53 1/2", 52 1/2", and several 48" muskies. Trout fishing is great, as well the large-mouth and northern fishing. Good size lake with lots a water and structure to fish.

The resort is first class. Meals are great, boats are kept clean, cabins are clean and updated. The staff are wonderful. Guides are knowledgable, and if you go out on your own, they are good at pointing you in the right direction.

As to the weight restrictions, you can always pay a little more to bump up to a larger plane. The most we have paid extra for the flight might have been $ 100 if you want to haul in more gear, food, beverage, etc. It's a short 15 minute flight from Nestor Falls.

I highly recommend Nielsen's.
