      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 .

Bites turning on!

Recommended Posts

Alright folks the bite is on! The snow is starting to settle and the ice is getting thicker. Seems year after year the first ice bite isn't quite as good as the bite that settles in after what many consider "First Ice". Surely there are exceptions, and maybe it is that due to unsafe travel early, when the bite is harder to find. Whatever the case the bite is turning on, and the fish are feeding aggresively. If you've been waiting, it's time to take a few vacation days, call in sick, quit work... Just grab your fishing gear, fishing buddy and digital camera. That's all I've got time for as I've got to line a few more rods! FYI it is much more exciting catching fish than reading about it.

Good Fishing!

Hi guys. 3 of us are planning a first time trip for the Jan 19 - 20 weekend. Where is your resort, lake access and bait shop? And most importantly, the bar to share fish stories and eat a hot meal!

Looking forward to coming up.

Hey B-Fishin,

Welcome!

I'm a independant fishing guide. Might want to check out Woody's Resort the sponsor for this sight. The One Stop Shop will fill your bait needs. There are a few different areas to access the ice up here with one of the most common being the Rainy Lake Marine access. Many people will be fishing the Birch Point area shortly. Another will be the Voyaguers National Park access. Lastly there are a few fish lubricating pubs around with the Ranier Muni and Roadhouse night club being out on hwy 11. No vehicle traffic at this point with many choosing to simply walk out or stumble?. There are some people using sleds and atv's, but you certainly don't want to go out exploring quite yet. We had a bit of a tough evening bite tonight, but had a mink scamper right up to us on several seperate instances. Pretty neat! Thought he was going to eat Fishmeister! Funny thing was I just finished an article for the Outdoor News in which I referenced the many wildlife encounters on the ice! Good Fishing!

      Hey Moose , sounds like some tough shooting as of late for you at those duckies . Just curious as to what choke you are using ?

      Has anyone ever stored with Oak Narrows Storage before? Need a spot to put a Polaris Ranger for the winter and thinking of calling them for a space, does anyone have any experience or feedback? Any other recommendations would be welcome. Need a 10x10 or 10x12 space likely.
      Thanks!

      the rum is back in its banks so bet the fishing is amazing? Anyone out trying? Where are all of you? I know it’s busy time but let us know what you are chasing.

      Tamarack Island Wilderness Lodge is pretty accommodating. Grassy Narrows Lodge is one of the nicer lodges in my opinion on the Canadian Southern portion. We made a point of stopping at a bunch of locations last year and this is good sized and really nice. At this point it would be my preferred Lodge on that portion of the lake. Both of these are boat into and on an island. Ryan

      Good afternoon guys, I live in Burnsville and I was wondering if anyone has had much luck on Crystal Lake for bass and Pike? I've fished it a few times and only caught 2 bass in a total of 8 hours.  Not looking for any specific locations, but any tips would be much appreciated!!!   Live bait? Plastics? Troll cranks for pike? thanks guys, have a great day. Gabe
