      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 .

Winnie cabins

Recommended Posts

Huskie

Planning another short trip to Winnie a week or so after the 4th. We usually stay at the Gosh Dam motel but would like to get on the lake if possible. Does anyone know of a bare bones cabin on the lake, under a 100 bucks a night that 3 or 4 guys could rent for either 2 or 3 nights on a 4 day trip? Not interested in spending 150-200 a night on this junket when we will be on the water all day. Thanks for the info in advance.

Highbanks has several cabins under $100 a night, and a few more at $108. Just fished out of there, and it's a great resort to fish from. Good landing, bait, bar, gas, and good information on the latest bite. From our experience, it gets you out on the lake much more quickly in the morning having everything right there.

jnelson: We have fished out in front of Highbanks many times, do you need to pull your rig out of the water each night due to the potential of the NW or W wind picking up during the night? Or is there some protection on the dock--didn't seem like it. With the mid lake bars and humps going strong it appears like a great place to stay.

HIGHBANKS

Hello!! We do have some availability yet in July. Give us a call at 800-365-2560. For docking overnight we have boat lifts available to our guests. They rent for $10/day and get your boat up and out of the water, we match your boat/motor size up to the appropriate size lift. It seems to be the best option when we have prevailing winds. Other guests prefer to have their boat/trailer parked by the cabin. We have a dock boy on staff to assist you throughout your stay with bait, fuel, backing up trailers, placing on lifts, etc. Feel free to check out our website at www.highbanks.com for pictures, etc. Thanks!!

Huskie:

We kind of liked being able to trailer-up each night for a few reasons rather than getting a lift. If the wind/weather came up during the night, we were ready to drive off to a smaller lake. That, and we usually had several types of bait and other items we wanted to take care of in the cabin, so parking right next to it made the carry much shorter and easier.

That said, the lift gets you out on the lake faster in the morning to give you a few more minutes to sleep in.

Launching there is a breeze, esp. with Josh's (dock attendant) help.

      Has anyone ever stored with Oak Narrows Storage before? Need a spot to put a Polaris Ranger for the winter and thinking of calling them for a space, does anyone have any experience or feedback? Any other recommendations would be welcome. Need a 10x10 or 10x12 space likely.
      Thanks!

      the rum is back in its banks so bet the fishing is amazing? Anyone out trying? Where are all of you? I know it’s busy time but let us know what you are chasing.

      Tamarack Island Wilderness Lodge is pretty accommodating. Grassy Narrows Lodge is one of the nicer lodges in my opinion on the Canadian Southern portion. We made a point of stopping at a bunch of locations last year and this is good sized and really nice. At this point it would be my preferred Lodge on that portion of the lake. Both of these are boat into and on an island. Ryan

      Good afternoon guys, I live in Burnsville and I was wondering if anyone has had much luck on Crystal Lake for bass and Pike? I've fished it a few times and only caught 2 bass in a total of 8 hours.  Not looking for any specific locations, but any tips would be much appreciated!!!   Live bait? Plastics? Troll cranks for pike? thanks guys, have a great day. Gabe
