      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 .

Resort on Portage Bay - Leech Lake

Recommended Posts

jiggin' fool

Don't know if this is an "allowable-request".., but I do see posts asking about references to resorts..., so if this is "taboo", forgive me and don't reply.

I am looking for a resort on Leech, specifically on Portage Bay, for a short-week/long-weekend. I want to find a resort that will allow pets, and ideally, have some sort of protected dock that I can leave the boat in. (If I have to launch every day, wouldn't be the end of the world.., just a little "perk" that is a plus).

This will be my first trip to Leech, and am primarily looking to toss 'ski baits for 5-days, hence Portage Bay, as that seems to be a recommended area for early August.

I am open to any suggestiongs. Just made a last-minute decision to skip Mille Lacs, to avoid weekend crowds and low-water level at launches.

In advance.., thanks for your help!!!

We always stay at Sugar Point Resort. It is about the last one on the East side. They do allow pets and have a protected harbor. The water level is also low but, their harbor was fine last week. The resort has always been greatfor us every year. Shoot me an email if you would like more information.

You could also check out the New Leech Lake Campground which is on the West side. They may have a couple of apartment type rooms if camping is out of the questions. Nice protected area for boats. I'd try to avoid the weekend of the 11th if you don't want a lot of other boats around as there will be a small Portage Bay only tournament on Leech.

Klee and WW,

Thanks for your replies!!! A TOURNY!?!?!?! On Portage?!?!? Wonderful.

Well, I may have to think Mille Lacs again. What's the difference? Tourny in Portage Bay.., or weekend crowds on Mille Lacs?

But thanks again. I still may check out Leech. Such a frustrating summer.., precious little time for me.., and low-water levels on many lakes.., hot, hot weather!!!!

Hmmm.., could take up golf I guess. NOT!!!!!

It is a big lake and you could always fish Boy Bay and Headquarters areas.

      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
