      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 .

Hi guys, Looking to take my wife and four kids to Ontario this summer, and would like to find a very productive lake. Will be taking my own boat so would probably go with a driveto resort but would consider a boatin if not to far out or pricey. main target would be northern pike. Muskies and lake trout would be a bonus for me. Would like to stay in the price range of maybe 1000 to 1500 for the week.

Again not looking for size but would like to have the children have a chance to catch many fish. any suggestions on camps? Will cross the boarder at international falls or pigeon river.

We have a boat in outpost cabin on Pipestone Lake that would fit the bill. Prices are reasonable and in the range you mentioned. Pipestone has some real good fishing for northern, smallmouth, lake trout, muskie, and walleye. The walleye fishing is more difficult as it is a clear trout water lake, but still produces some decent numbers and size if you put in your time. The other species are more abundant and easier to catch. Take a look at our HSOforum and if you have any qyuestions, let me know.

Hey Fishentime,

Welcome to FishingMinnesota, I think you will find tons of info on this HSOforum to not only help you find places to go, but to also put more fish in your boat.

I own 2 boat in fishing resorts and a boat in outpost in ontario, either option would be great for your family. We have excellent Lake Trout, Muskie, Northern Pike, and Smallmouth Bass.

We are currently building a new HSOforum, but you can view the old one at

If you have any questions, just e-mail me at or you can call me at 218-244-7019

Merry Christmas

    • Yes, we buy the spray cans of olive oil,canola or whatever. I personally haven't tried fish but with breaded chicken I'm not a big fan. It works great when I make wings and non battered chicken. Just my personal experience.
    • That is a thing of beauty. I am speechless and if you know me........
    • Those are cool but I enjoy the amount of water that mixes with my whiskey when I put 2 or 3 cubes of ice in it.
    • That's why my wife is getting one for Winter Solstice too!
    • Milton’s put 1/8 on your house? Was that the new owner? Mines Miltona, 4 years old and came with either 1/4 or 5/16, not 100% sure but it wasn’t 1/8. 
    • I get what Del is saying to a certain extent. I would never buy a bottle of Pappy for $2000. There's no way that any whiskey can taste 40-50 times better than a $30-$50 bottle. I actually rarely buy anything over $35/bottle but that's just me being cheap. I do like to try the $50 stuff but have rarely found anything that I like better than Eagle Rare, Buffalo Trace or Maker's Mark. Actually one of my favorite Bourbon's is Jim Beam Black for only about $25 a bottle. That being said I couldn't care less what other people drink or what they pay for their whiskey, beer, wine or whatever. If you have a job and make your own money, buy and drink what you want. I don't know if that's true or not but I sometimes wonder the same thing about all the people who claim to like really hoppy beers.
    • Between the frig and stove its only about 2 steps    My kinda program !!!
    • like any addiction..........there are the 12 steps!!!!!!!!!!
    • awe............a Christmas present for the you can use it!!!! I see!!!!!!!!!LOL!!!!!!
    • Whatever gets you though the night.  If it makes you feel superior to drink expensive whiskey then by all means do so.
