      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 .

Ice fishing /LOTW/ places to stay

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone out there has any suggestions for a place to stay at LOTW? Some friends and I are hoping to go at the end of January and are starting to plan for it.

We stay at the Lake Road. Small Motel but clean rooms and great fish cleaning area. Close to all the resorts. If your looking for a cabin I would check out the lakeofthewoodsmn website and you can get all the contact info you need for many many resorts and hotel/motels.

We have stayed at Sportsmans, Adrians, RiverBend and Zipple Bay Resort and all were very good and nice people.

If your staying or fishing the Rainy River I highly recomend The Royal Dutchman. Doug and Marylin do a great job up there.

You might want to think about renting a sleeper shack. I don't know what kind of money you are looking to spend, but they are fun (I think it was $80 per person for one night and 2 days of fishing-bait is included)! I stayed in one of Adrian's last year and had a blast. One nice thing is you can use any of their houses on the lake that isn't occupied...and they have alot of fish houses out there, so you can move around alot. Just a thought....

As a fellow CPAP user, I can certainly sympathize with your plight. You might want to consider looking into what the cost would be to rent a small Honda generator. They have them at an outpost camp I stay at in Ontario. They are very easy to operate and run hush-hush quiet. I also use one at my deer camp. Good luck on your LOW trip! 1DIRTBALL wink.gif

we have always stayed at the river's bend resort. they are friendly and make every effort to keep you on fish. not mentioning any specific resort, but be aware of resorts that have tons of shacks that they service. the fish tend to quit biting when the sun goes down. it is nice to get picked up quickly when that happens and get back into the comfort of the cabin. we see the larger resorts still hauling people in 2 or more hours after we have been taken back in. they just dont have the number of vehicles to get everyone that they have out there off in a timely manner. all those resorts are great places to visit when you are done fishing. best of luck, that lake is really hit and miss if you dont have your own gear and mobility. i.e. fish shallower close to the island early and late and deeper during the day for the saugers.

Well SFBOY I dunno.....Early and late ice anyways on the eastside areas I like to fish the best bite don't even start till the end of the day once the "Bomber Races" as we call them begin! Many evenings they're snappin way good still after the tourisits and the sun have both been long gone also. It's just not that well known and those in the know are for the most part tightlippers! Think way shallow moving water. 2 winters back my biggest fish of the entire winter came at 1am in 9 fow, and no it was'nt a Burbot or Sturgeonfish!
