      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 .

Best Ice house sleeper rental at Lake of the woods

Recommended Posts

I am heading up to LOTW in early March with my 10 year old son. I am a bit of an avid indoorsman and would like to stay in an ice castle ice house or equivalent. We have stayed on Lake Mille Lacs the last couple of years and it was not a problem to find one.

To make a long story short, does anyone have any recommendations?

 

Thanks,

Trent

I went out of Sportsman's Lodge this year and highly recommend them. They worked hard to put us in a good spot, gave a lot of good advice, and respond promptly via CB radio when we were low on bait. They offered to move the house if fishing was slow for us and we saw them moving multiple other houses every day. I've heard good things about Arnesons as well, but I haven't used them.

Most resorts will not have a opening for a date that soon. There is a new outfitter that has a few wheel houses running out of     Zipple or Morris Point. You can try him. Dan @ 605-645-8893

I used a few different outfits up there and the Lake of the Woods Outdoorsman was the most memorable experience. Not only were they the most friendly, I had the best fishing experience out of their houses. Wheelers point was good too but definitely not as memorable and they didn't take care of you like JP does.

I have never stayed in Arnesens houses but have fished around them.  The OP states he is an avid indoorsman and wants an IceCastle type of house.  That makes me think he wants something better than your basic skid house.  Are Arnesens houses your nice basic skid fish house or will their houses meet the OP's Ice Castle expectations?  I pose this question not to judge Arnesens as I know they are a great outfit but to fit the OP to what he expects.
