      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Rainbow Point?

Recommended Posts

Anyone ever stay at Rainbow Point on Perrault Lake? How's the fishing? Nice place to stay? Is the food at the resturaunt down the road any good? Looking to head up there mid August, do the walleye still bit that time of year? Thanks.

I stayed at Rainbow Point six or seven times while in high school and college. Bob and Gale the owners do a great job running the camp. I think Bob still calls my Dad once or twice a year and it has been a decade since we fished there. Very friendly people and they work hard to try and make everyone in camp have a good trip.

Never been there in mid August. One year we fished mid July and caught nice walleyes on sunken islands mostly in the evenings. A depth finder, marker bouys, and probably a handheld GPS would be needed to fish them. Alot of the sunken islands where not marked on the provided maps.

We also once fished over Labor Day weekend, but the lake had just turned over and fishing was tough until the last day of our trip. All our other trips where in early spring. It has been 13 years since I have been there so I can't help you out to much.

We did have Bob line us up with a guide for the first two days we fished the first year and it was money well spent. He showed us alot of spots to fish. Not all of them had fish the first year, but on subsequent trips they really payed of.

Good luck on your trip you picked a good camp and hopefully the fish will cooperate.
