      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 .

Two Harbors and north shore vs. Bayfield and Islands - Lake trout

Recommended Posts

fishingchef

Hey Guys I've done all of my limited lake trout fishing around Bayfield and the Apostle Islands area, I lived out on madeline Island seasonally for four years so I am familiar with that fishery, but now am living in Mpls.

Seems to be some decent Lake trout reports coming from the north shore so I was thinking about heading up that way instead of bayfield. Just thought I'd chime in to see if the fishing is better up that way or if IT is simply a "grass is always greener" scenario.

Keep in mind I run a 16 ft. 50 h.p. tiller, so it is always dependant on wind and weather, and when I am fishing in the Islands I can't run all the way out to outer. If the weather is right I can cover some water and track down some fish in the Islands, but not looking to make too long of runs when fishing a new area. From what I gather there is nearer to shore potential in the two harbors area.

JUst like to know if the north shore presents any better potential than the Bayfield/Islands area, and if it is worth the effort of fishing and trying to figure out a new area. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I am really interested in hearing what some others thought and opinions are on the two fisheries.

Thanks for any help.

I have only fished the apostles a few times so do not know it well but my sense is it is comparable...meaning I have had similar success in both locations. I know it can be good around the flats and some of the islands at the apostles but the same is true on the north shore. You just have to find the fish.
