      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Recommended Posts


Friday, May 24th- Monday, May 27th

Looking for a fun getaway for Memorial weekend? Rainy Lake has some awesome scenery and the fishing typically is also that awesome. From eaters to trophy fish in numerous specie. Families are welcome.

Woody's Resort on the Famed Rainy Lake

Friday, May 24th-arrivial day

Saturday-Fishing for walleye and some nice pike or crappie.

Sunday-More fishing and a walleye supper put on by our host Woody & LeeAnne Woods.

Monday, One can fish and then travel home when ever they choose to depart.

Woody will give a small seminar on the how to's for fish on Rainy lake, areas to fish and baits to target the specie you want to. Woody has been guiding on Rainy longer than most of us have been on this earth and he knows Rainy Lake very well.

There will be numerous prizes. We are lining up now and a list will be posted at a later date. I know I have a few walleye rods lined up now with some tackle. This list should grow.

Cost for the Friday through Monday get together will be $195 per guest and that will include the seminar, fish fry and some very nice prizes to be drawn for.

Please call and reserve your spot and mention that your coming for the Woody's Resort GTG and please send a $100 deposit.

20% discount for all Veteran's.

I personally fish Woody's every Memorial weekend and the fishing I have had for pike, eyes has been great the last years. Rainy have true trophy's for pike, walleyes and crappie and good numbers also.

If you have any further questions, please ask here in the forums or contact myself Tom-Harvey-Lee or Woody at Woody's Resort.

So far, we have a donation from Clam for a rod or two.

Donnie Lahr from Digger anchor will be donating a Digger anchor for a door prize also.

Big thanks to Clam and Digger Anchor for thier support on this event.

Working on some lure and maybe a nice net also.

Still working on more items for this GTG. If we have enogh attendee's, I am going to build a custom fishing rod for a door prize also. It will be personalized for the winner.

The door prize should in itself be worth the trip for a fun GTG.

Gonna be fun and we should have some great fishing if everything goes like all other Memorial weekends I have fished Rainy Lake.

Sounds great Steve.

Every year I go up this weekend and the eye bite has always been very good.

With the possible late ice out, those bigger pike could also still be in the shallows and it's fun picking up a few pike while trolling for eyes and some pike are in that 15-20# range.

Hope you can make it.

With Memorial weekend getting closer, if you are still questioning making the weekend, the fishing should be good.

The ice is just starting to go out and memorial weekend, the shallow haunts where we typically fish should have some of the larger pike still in the shallows.

Always fun to hook up with those larger pike inbetween the walleyes.

Just maybe, one can find some of the nice crappie in the bays.

This trip has always been a great one for me and it looks like this year could be a banner year on Memorial weekend.

Sounds like a great trip and Rainy is such a fantastic lake to fish. I'm sure everyone will have a great time.

Unfortunately, I be thinking of all of you instead of fishing. I have a wedding that weekend so I'll be checking in to see all the pictures of nice fish and happy fishermen/gals.
