      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 .

Namakan Canoe Trip Early June

Recommended Posts

Woodduck_MN

I'm planning a Canoe/Fishing trip to Voyagers/Namakan 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 and good eye fishing?

After five days camping, we need a place to shower and clean-up, any suggestions? Also a good place for lunch before heading back to the Cities and St. Cloud.

Thanks

I know that Voyagaire Houseboats on Crane Lake offers showers and has a full bar resaurant. Not sure if Nelsons or Pine Point offer showers, but Nelsons does serve food. Trails End Resort is about 8 miles from Crane Lake they offer food the same with Sportmans and the Portage in Buyck. Enjoy your trip!!

Woodduck,

The park has a group site on Kab designed for large groups. You can reserve it and it costs $35 per day. It has plenty of dock space, many tent pads, and an outhouse. It is located on the north shore just west of lost bay and has many good June fishing spots nearby. Go online at http://www.nps.gov/voya to check it out.

Just a heads-up...there are a few islands and bays that will protect you guys if the wind kicks up, but if you get a steady east or west wind, those waves get to be doozies on Namakan, even on a pontoon.

If you're going through Crane, Voyagaire has good food. Nelson's has good food, too, but you might want to clean up a bit before you go there. It's more of a golf-shirt type place, IMO. The DAM in Orr has good cafe/bar food as well. The DAM Burger is one of my favorites!

Thanks duckster,

The site on Kab is not available for the dates we want. We considered the one on Rainy, but I don't think we want get nine miles out on Rainy and have the wind come up.

Thanks everyone else for the feedback too.

We plan on going out of the Ash River Visitors Station and getting one of the camping sites at the west end of the lake on one of the islands.
