      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 .

birch / bear island / silver island camp sites

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I recently ordered and received my superior national forest map. I have become aware that there are numerous lakes within the superior national forest (but outside the bwca) that have small public access ramps and boat campsites on them similar to bwca sites. I am a bwca veteran but would love to hit a few of these lakes with my wife and our small 16ft lund w/30hp merc.

The question is this....we have a long drive to get to the area and i know these boat campsites are non reservable, how fast are they filled on a weekend? If we are looking for one of the boat sites (i believe it has over 10)on birch on a saturday morning are we out of luck?

Anyone have any favorite lakes in superior that has a few boat sites?

Thank you.

you should not have a problem getting a campsite on birch. they are not used that often this time of year. mostly house boats will use them.

Bear Island Lake campsites are used very little. Pretty lake,but fishing is slow right now. Best bite for bass, pike or walleye is early or late in the day.

Big Lake up on the "echo trail" has some nice campsites outside of the BWCA. The other lakes can be tough to fish. But Big Lake is a bit easier to fish. Take a search on this site I think I have a detailed where to fish post about a year old or so. It is a bit longer to get to and one corner is in the BWCA so you need to keep your boat out of that corner. Despite the name it is not as big as these others. I've never seen more than a couple of the sites being used at a time. Weigh out how long it takes you to get there vs. running up to Big but I have had better luck when fishing gets tougher.

Like Zap said Big Lake up the Echo is a good lake to go to however the camp sites have on occasion been full. Also you can use your motor on all parts of the lake even though the one corner is in the BWCA.
