      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 .

Does anyone know if there is a way to get on 3 island lake? It is the one just north of crooked lake East of Marcell about 7 miles.

Thanks,

Ron

buzzin for bass

If you figure it out please let me know, I grew up fishing every summer very near there and always wanted to try. I've found forestry maps that show a protage from crooked but I've never been able to locate the trail. Now that I'm a little older and more mobile (own vehicle and boat) I should probably just head over and ask some homeowners if they'd mind me accessing the lake through their land the next time I'm up in the area. Good luck

A friend of mine that owns a cabin in the area used to fish it years ago, but the person that granted them access to the lake died and he hasn't been back since. He says it's a great lake loaded with big bass, and I'm sure it still is because nobody can get on it to fish it. I'd be interested in it too as I'll be in the area the end of August.

Sounds like we will need to do a road trip from the cabin and check on it. We are on Grave lake the week of the 4th.

BIG ISLAND DUDE

There is a portage from crooked lake. It is up over a big hill on the north side, I believe there is a prtage sign. the trail is pretty good but it is kinda long. three island is a decent smallie lake but it is not unlike many of the other more accessable lakes in the area. it does however make for a fun little trip though. If you go, post how you did. I live on bigisland and make it over there every five years or so. I have had mixed results.

About 45 yrs ago a guy from Talmoon took my parents & I (I was a little kid) to 3 Island. We loaded up a small wood boat in his pickup & used that. I don't remember carrying it through a portage-- he probably knew someone who had property there where we could launch it. As I remember, we caught smallmouth on a rock/gravel bar between 2 islands or island and shore till someone (probably me) dropped a tackle box, then it was over. It was either quite shallow or clear water because we could see bottom.

I have lots of good memories from that area, it's beautiful.

The reason I am thinking of going there is the smallmouth and the adventure of getting there. Grave offers good fishing for panfish and thats about it. A week of fishing for those gets a little overboard. What are the other more accessible lakes for smallies. You can e-mail me if you don't want to post(I don't keep smallies)

Looks like I need to find a canoe....

Fished it many times many years ago. Always had a blast. I would love to get back on the lake, but no longer have connections. It used to be that if you were to cast the shorelines in the morning in the shady areas with a Whistler jig and a 2" grub, you could have your way with the smallies. We never caught anything huge (although, I've seen some big ones) but the fish came in bunches. It was a lot of fun.

I heard Caribou is the clearest lake in the state.
