      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 .

LARGE sleeper rentals

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of an outfitter that has sleeper houses larger than 4 or 6 person? We are looking to get a group of guys up to URL this winter for a bachelor party and were hoping to find a place that fits 8 or 10.

I remember someone telling me an outfitter had a 12 person with a loft, that sounded like it would fit the bill perfectly, I just can't find anything online other than the standard 2, 4 or 6 man.

Thanks for your help!

Call Paul at Appeldoorn's Resort on Mille Lacs, he's putting a house on the ice this year that's just what you're looking for. I can't reall the exacts, but something in the 16x28 range.

He's doing this in response to requests like yours, so it should fit your needs!

You might have to slpit the group up. There aren't too many places other than Appledoorm's that I know of that can handle a group like that in 1 house. For BO reasons you might be better off in 2 shacks too.

Yea, I've done some 3-4 nighters with 4 guys and the odor tends to be an issue by the last couple days. Multiply that by two or three and you've got a new Febreze commercial sick I suppose as long as there's one house big enough for everyone to sit around playing poker during the slow bite, two houses would suffice.

I would look at renting 2-4 houses, if you reserve them far enough in advance you may be able to get the resort to put them within short distance of each other for your event.

The big house on mille Laccs would be nice as maybe your could recruit some of the "local" talent from Fat Jacks in Bock for a private showing to make it a proper bachelor party.

We run some of the bigger houses in the biz with our six man sleepers coming in at 12'x24' six man sleeper houses. Bigger houses are getting harder to come by since the are hard to heat and move.

Most places will work with you if you need the houses close together.

If you consider Mille Lacs, call Paul at Appeldoorns AND John at Rocky Reef.

Rocky Reef Mille Lacs has 4-man houses which are designed to be linked together. I know they will link 2 houses together for 6 or 8 guys. Not sure about linking 3 houses if you have 10 to 12 guys.

CALL them and ask. It can't hurt.
