      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 .

Fish the current areas. Above the falls, below the d a m , river etc. Depending on water temps you may be able to find them up tight on the weeds and wood.

If you have a canoe take the 1st portage and fish below the falls. We have done very well there early and late in the day. Jig n minnow there and other current areas but crawlers always work. Walleyes love crawlers no matter where I have been.

Slip bobbers with a leech or minnow can also produce once you find a point break or rock pile.

I havent been there for about 5 years though so this may be old news but should still hold up.

Good luck.

You will need a permit if traveling to the Northeast end of the lake, maybe HP restrictions there also. Check at the Wolf Center before heading up. We have done well just trolling in front of the campground in the evening with a crawler harness. If you get the proper permit, head East from the campground boat launch and look for some stumps and try a slip bobber and crawler. Talk to the campground host there, he'll give you some good info also.

Northlander,

You sure did need a permit to fish the BWCA side of Fall lake if you weren't a cabin owner on the lake 5-7 years ago.

You're lucky you aren't rotting in some prison making picnic tables and latrines for the Forest Service! grin.gifgrin.gif

You will need a BWCAW permit to travel North past the canoe landing. Day Trip Paddlers can self register at the Entry Point Information Post ( That must be what NL did when he took a canoe to the Splash Lk. rapids ).

-Not sure regarding the 25hp. motor permits/ availability...

Later -CLoma

      With 2 trout stamps you can keep double your limit. You heard it here first on the interwebs!  Me and Mr Williams will swing by and say Hi this winter in Ely.   That is, if we can get around your sled!!  Happy Thanksgiving!

       There is probably not going to be much ice to speak of  if the forecast holds true. They are talking 50s on Friday, Sunday and Monday. Any ice we did have will most likely be gone, unfortunately.
    • snowfighter
      Haven't been out looking but things have been froze up for awhile. Heard there was some out on Bowstring last week.

      Wife you dummy  I know the problem first hand !!

      It's that time of year. Cone on up and see if you can claim the Nord Lord. Spearing in the Third River Flowage in Winnie. Pizza party Friday night in the lodge potluck in the ice Saturday at noon.   Any questions hollar.

      Saw something interesting on forest lake this morning...lake was completely locked up, yet someone had launched their boat and was trudging through the ice! That’s dedication! Anyone have any ice updates to report?

      2 Trout stamps.  Did I miss something and need to go back and get another?
    • Wanderer
      The 200 foot rule gets me a little but it has to be defined somehow what is occupied and what isn’t.   So for a wheelhouse we get to buy tabs to have on the road and a sticker to have it on the ice and go away for a little while.  Seems pretty close to double taxation since any LE can find out who the owner is from the current plate. Plus the spear shack that I might want to keep up over the weekend.  2 tags plus license. Combination sports license 2 trout stamps Waterfowl stamps Pheasant stamp  Turkey license (stamp now included) Deer license for all seasons   The bucket is getting heavy with all the drops in it.
