      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 .

Just doing a little pre-planning for our trip up next year and was wondering what recommendations might be made for places to eat in Ft. Frances. We are staying at Birch Point from a Sat. through Fri and have decided to break our week up with a mid-week trip back into Ft. Frances for dinner one night.

Our thought was to eat on the Canadian side so that we do not have to try getting through Customs both ways just to eat dinner.

Searched the internet but have only found a couple of places, Thought maybe some local information might prove helpful.

Thanks and Bon Appetit!

Our group decided to try eating in FT. Francis this year for one meal. After driving around looking for a place I did the un-manly thing and asked a local walking on the sidewalk where was the best place in town to eat. They reccommended "the kettles". Just around the corner from the bridge. It was very delicious. Nothing fancy but home cooked style and reasonable. Would do it again.

Google the Ft. Frances Chamber of Commerce to find more restaurants. As far as recommendations The La Place Rendez-Vous is on the lake between town and the reservation and La Flambee International Cuisine is downtown. I've eaten at both and both are good. The best meal I've ever eaten anywhere was at the second one.

My favorite on either side of the bridge. A mite pricey but everything (except the ribs) is great. In the Fall, they start their 5-course special which I have had twice and it was awesome.

Everything is made from scratch so leave plenty of time to relax while your meal is being prepared. They also have a noon buffet - small selection but cheap and also very good.
