      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 .

Rainy Lake Canoe/Fishing Trip in Early June

Recommended Posts

Woodduck_MN

I'm planning a Canoe/Fishing trip to Voyagers/Rainy Lake in early June for about 15 guys. We normally head to the BWCA for this trip but our group has gotten too large to stay at one campsite. Two campsite breaks up the group too much. We will be bringing our pontoon and pull the canoes to our base camp.

Any suggestions for campsites, we are thinking of renting the one in Voyagers near the Brule Narrows.

After five days camping, we need a place to shower and clean-up, any suggestions? We don't want to smell each other for five hours on the way home. LOL. Also a good place for lunch.

Thanks

Rainy Lake is quite different than the BWCA for canoeing. Rainy is better suited for motorized boats or kayaks, as it can get pretty rough. I'm not saying its impossible to fish in a canoe, it just might be a little more challenging.

First of all welcome to Fishing Minnesota!

I do see a handful of canoes take off each year from the Visitor Center landing. The key is little or no wind to get out and back from the Brule. There are several places to tuck out of the wind and fish there and on the way out there.

On the other hand it seemed like half of the days last year were too windy for my 14'/20 hp on the Rainy.

Other obvious but often overlooked options for people who want to canoe up here are the Littlefork, Bigfork and Rainy rivers. All have excellent June fishing although the first two could even have a few more skeeters than the lake then.

Make your reservations plenty early for the site in the Brule. It's a gorgeous site that has a lot of good canoeing areas close by, but as mentioned before I wouldn't plan on taking the canoes any real distance.

The right wind blowing across the lake can be pretty unforgiving to say the least. We had to get a crew with 3 canoes over to shore after one tipped over so they could dry out and spend the night, and that was in Black Bay about 1/2 mile from the visitor center!

Thanks for your responses. We are considering going to Namakan instead. More cover and not as much open water so we can fish from the canoes easier.
