      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 .

best campsites and firewood

Recommended Posts

heard the best campsites are on the namakan side. Is there plenty of good sites and is it better to go mid week to get a good campsite. Also what about firewood for fires? Is there plenty or do you have to cruise the shore looking for driftwood?

Fishrodger, nice campsites throughout the park, Kab, Nam and some in Sandpoint. Since it is first come first serve, you might set up on one of the first open sites you find, then scout around for a move to somthing more to your liking.

Firewood, I'll try to explain, if you find downed wood, or deadfall, you may use it, chances are that may be slim. Driftwood along the shores might be protected, maybe someone knows for sure.

You may have to purchase firewood, and if you do, it must be purchased from a State of MN DNR approved vendor, and you must have a receipt showing the purchase issued by the approved vendor. The park adopted the same rules as the state of MN state parks. The reg is to prevent the spread of certain tree diseases caused by insects that may travel in frewood. good luck, guts

I really haven’t seen too many bad sites anywhere on the lakes. Some people like the open others not, I look for sites that work for the boats that we have in the group, I don’t think the site on the other side of the lake are any different.

The wood is easiest to find on the shores I have found, usually there isn’t much by the sites. The day of the week to go The last time I went a few weeks ago was on a Sunday and many others thought the same I have seen it dead on Sundays and Tuesdays I’m not sure any more Wednesdays Lets say Wednesdays that will work. I do think Sunday thru Thursdays, are the best to go in. It has been for me.

I like to find the site that the fish are at!! grin.gif

Hope this helps

Been camping all around up there and always think the site we are on is better than the last. I really don't think there are any bad sites. In Namakan I liked Hammer Bay south, good location & protected from the weather & wind. Also has a dock. As for fire wood on the island sites it can be scarce but the land areas always have plenty. Good luck

I also love Hammer Bay south. It has some of the best fishing around and you don't have as much pressure as some of the other areas of the lake.

I think that finding a spot to Camp?, Tuesdays or Wed.

Good Luck!
