      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 .

I am going on a family vacation with the in-laws the third week in August....So I plan to do some fishing. I'm no pro, so any help with locations and directions would be nice. I will have the nephews with I'm sure a couple times, so panfish is also an option. Thanks for any help.

You have a great spot right out in front of your resort. Look at the locator while driving straight out from shore, and once is starts dropping like a rock, turn around and fish anywhere from 7' to 20'.....there is a weed edge at the drop off and we used to catch everything from perch to northerns to walleyes. With jigs and minnows.

You can follow that weedline all along the shore, but I remember having better luck from around your resort to the north.

Good luck.

We have stayed next door to you at Birch Villa for almost 30 yrs now, and Commanche is right on.....straight out from the resort maybe a couple hundred yards is a decent area, especially from about 7-10pm. You will probably see lots of boats trolling there - we call it the "landing strip" - starting north a couple hundred yards and going all the way S to the marina sometimes (well, at least as far S as Cass Lake Lodge). And during the day, depending on the wind direction, you can start in about 10' and drift to 25' to cover a nice area. At this time of year I would be trying a jig'n'leech for walleye.

Just to the north maybe a couple hundred yards in the public "park" area, you will see on shore a green rooftop. It is just 4 poles with a green roof. We call it the "green awning". Straight out from there in about 12' has been a decent spot for us when we want to stay close to the resort. If we go out real early (before 9 am) we can be found anchored there using a slip bobber with a fathead and can come up with a mixed bag.

Another spot to try close to the resort would be Stony Point (which by not so much as a co-inky-dink is the name of Commanche's restaurant here in ILL). Some nice weeds in about 12' and we find it a good place to try for either perch, walleye, or pike with the occassional rock bass.
