      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 .

Vee Lake

Recommended Posts

Fished it in 2006. Decent Lake for Walleye and Northern. 27" walleye 100 yrds from cabin. 40" northern over in Cobham (the lake off of Vee to the North. Don't waste your time on the portage unless you are fishing for northern. Not one walleye caught.

Cabin is ok but cramped sleeping quarters. I would have slept in tha Gazebo but there was a bear on the island. We caught him in our boat stealing my Berkley Power Grubs and Worms.

The outfitter was the worst part. We were "specifically" told more than once they would fly in the extra weight if we paid the extra money and that they would fly the Beer and soda in ahead of time. We had no problem paying $1.25 per pound extra but once we got there things changed.

The plane to fly us in was running two hours late so we ended up having to listen to Bruce, the father, lecture us on the extra weight, how an otter can handle only so much weight. We asked them why our beer was not flown in ahead of time like promissed but we got the run around on that one. We asked them to fly some of it in mid week, but they said they no longer make mid week flights.

I see on there web site they have addressed this problem by no longer accomodating any extra weight. At least now they don't otright lie to you.

All said and done we would go back to there lakes but after spending $7,500 for the group we would go with another outfitter that at least would say thank you to us upon leaving.

getting jiggy-sorry to hear about your time on the extra weight issue. I can totally understand your point of view. If told something, should come through on the deal. Keep us in mind if you ever want to do an other fly in. We do the same deal flying items in ahead and it gets done. Example, I already have my planed loaded for tomarrow with a pre order to help save time in the morning. We fly beech 18's which is simluar size to the otter realitive speaking. Im flying in a group of 2 tomarrow therefor I have lots of extra room on the flight, Im flying in 900 pounds of beer and soda for a group coming up in acouple weeks that made the pre order.

We never count fish so I can not give exact counts. My guess would be 40 - 60 walleye a day per boat, 10 to 20 Northern Pike (we don't target them). We may actually only fish a total of 5-6 hours a day when you factor in shore lunch, cocktail hour(s), eradicating the camp of bears, and the fact we never start fishing b4 10am. We like to explore and it is a long boat ride to get to the far parts of the lake.

The best fishing ended up being right close to the cabin. Fish around the cabin island, the weed bed on the north side of the island constantly produced 4 to 6 fish on each drift. Also fish the shoreline on the north side of the lake.

There is an small Indian shack on the lake so don't be surprised if you see another boat. Keep an eye out for bears both at their camp as well as yours.
