      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 .

Looking for vacation ideas

Recommended Posts

Looking for your recommendations for good walleye fishing lake with cabins, boat rentals, etc. Possible locations I have looked at so far are Vermilion, Kabetogema, Ely, Grand Marais/Gunflint Trail. This would be a trip for my wife and I. Any information appreciated. Thank you!

I don't have any specific resorts to recommend, and haven't fished Vermilion very much, but ......

I fished a tournament on Vermilion a few years ago and LOVED it. My partner and I keep saying we need to get back there with the wives and kids. Fishing was fantastic, not just for walleyes, the multi-species action we had was really fun. The lake is nice and scenic, a really unique mix of gorgeous vacation homes and undeveloped wilderness. And there's a lot of good vacation amenities in the area that you can get to from the lake, like the casino and some other bar & grills. Try the Vermilion forum for more info.

I also like Kab and Ely and Grand Marais, but for a family vacation I would vote for Vermilion unless you're looking for more seclusion, more wilderness.

Give Ely a shot.

We go (but not this year) up to Timber Trail Lodge in Ely for 8 yrs or so. It is on a chain of lakes. Good Eye and Smallie fishing. Biggest Smallies I've caught up there are a 21 " & 22 1/2. (Released)

Easy fishing also. Just slip bobber fish with tiny glow jigs and leeches.

If you can find them, huge Crappies in Farm lake. I have a 16 1/2" replica from there.

Contact Bill @ Timber trail. You won't be disappointed.

I would definitely go with Vermilion for a family setting. It is absolutely beautiful there and great fishing. Shoot me an email and I can help you with places to fish and stay there.

Check out Cass Lake. Super easy lake to walleye fish, good perch, great muskie and good for everything else. (Raps shallow morning and night) Reasonable resort rates and lots of options. Plus tons of awesome small lakes, plus other great big lakes are nearby.
