      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 .

Musky Trip Next Summer

Recommended Posts

Looking for a few Ideas on where to make a trip for muskies in MN, WI or Canada. Here is the situation myself and some fellow memebers of the UW-fishing Team are wanting to plan a Musky trip for next summmer. There would prolly be around 5 of us, we are looking at a resort that is afforadble but also one that provides oppertunities for trophy fish. This past weekend we had a trip to Green Bay and did decent (34, 40, 44, 45, 48) but most importantly we had a great time. Now we want to plan a summer and fall trip. The fall trip will be to Green Bay agian but the summer trip destination is up in the air.

Thank you in advance for any ideas,

Croix

Croix,

What's your boat situation? That'll help people direct you a bit. Also, as with any trip, the $$$ factor seems to rule. Save what you can and make the best of it.

Boats big enough to handle bigger water? If that's the case LOTW would be a good option. Take a guide the first day to learn the lake and then go from there. I know guys that go to Red Wing Lodge every year and do just that.

A Metro blitz would be kind of fun too, 'tonka, Waconia, Indy, White Bear, Bald Eagle, Forest....a cool way to fish a lot of different waters. Even better if you could find a college buddy with a place to stay in the area.

Another idea would be to hook up with Tim Anderson and work the Brainerd area for a few days. He could get you going on Sham and/or Alex and those lakes could make for a few fun and productive days. You could also make a day and hit some of the less-pressured lakes in the Longville area.

Without a doubt, Lake of the Woods. Give Frank Walsh at Bay Store Camp a call and see if they have openings. Frank and Laura are great folks and they specialize in Musky fishing and groups. They will put you on fish and they are BIG fish.

We have the boats and gear to handle big water, we are thinking of hitting the Big V, LOTW, or somewhere in Wisconsin where we can hit multiple lakes in a week. Prolly leaning towards hitting LOTW, Ill know more after our team metting next week. It also sounds like we might be able to use SOME team money so that should help out.

Those resorts sound awesome, thanks again!

LOTW. I've been going to Red Deer Lodge with the family for over 16 years. Ray and Roxanne are excellent hosts and the fishing is incredible. If you end up going ask Ray for a ride on the Argo. Those things plow through thick canadian forest like a stroll in the park.
