      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 would imagine it, like most campgrounds, fills up every weekend as well. Any one know or have a feel for that? We'd like to do the Duluth area in the summer/fall too.

There is also the Fond Du Lac Campground that is right next to Jay Cooke. It is right on the St. Louis River. If you do a search for Fond Du Lac Campground Duluth, their HSOforum should come up. If you are bringing a boat you can dock it right at the campground. There is also Indian Point Campground that is on the river near Spirit Mountain.

We stayed at spirit mountain last October with the trailer. It is a nice place, clean rest rooms and showers, nice people etc. Nice wooded sites with shade etc. We would go back again.

We are staying at Jay Cooke this fall though...

Another option in that area is the Buffalo House Campground. They are a full service operation with campground, resturant and bar. Clean and well run operation.

A follow up from last weekend.

We spent 3 nights at Spirit Mountain, Saturday - Monday nights.

The campground was full Saturday night, and really very quiet.

Sunday / Monday night was 25% full or so. The bathrooms were clean and nice.

The spots are wooded, some spots are pretty small, others are very spacious. some spots are flat, others the fire ring might only be able to put chairs 1/2 way around.

You can't beat the convience, gas/propane/goodies 1 mile away, the harbor a 10 minute drive away.

We would go back.
