      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 .

Anyone have any first hand knowledge? How does it compare to Island or Fish? Is there any places one could camp for the weekend?

There are a lot of small walleyes in the lake.

There is a USFS Campground on the lake that is an excellent place to camp for the weekend.

By small do you mean throw backs or eater size?

Are they 10-12 inchers or 13-15?

thanks for the info.

Wade I would consider most of them throw backs. I would just camp on Island Lake. Some nice spots and some good fishing.

Mostly throw backs but I don't think you would have a problem getting plenty of eaters.

It might be worth your time to camp there though for the sake of trying a new lake and getting out of the Duluth area.

I have been told that if you can find crappies in the lake they are nice. That may be another reason to go.

I too have heard about nice crappies if you can find them. I am always looking for a place to camp and get away that isn't buzzing with skiiers and jetski's. Island lake is nice, but a bit too "busy" for my liking. Since I can only afford the time andmoney to make my trips to Crane lake area once a year, this might be a nice place to go.

Wade how far are you looking at going? I could give you a couple other options without the skiing/jet skiing presence depending what your distance/time travled limits are.

Check out these websites, there are maps that could give you an idea of what's available for U.S. Forest Service Campgrounds.

http://www.fs.fed.us/r9/forests/superior/recreation/camping/

Fee Campgrounds:

No Fee Campsites:

I was figuring on about 2 hours from Duluth. Here are a few.

Birch Lake south of Ely is a good walleye, pike and smallmouth lake. Here again, if you can find the crappies they are big. I fish the lake a fair amount and I have not seen a jet ski on it yet. That isn't to say they are never on it but I think it is very rare. It is a good sized lake (5600 acres) so there is a fair amount of water to fish and a few bays to tuck back into.

I would just about guarantee that any of the lakes on the no fee campsite list won't have jet ski's on them. Sand Lake off of County Road 2 has decent walleye fishing as does Wilson north of Isabella.
