      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 .

Lubey, no experience there from me, but there are two excellent resources for you.

One is the Sportsman's Connection book of maps for the Minnesota Arrowhead. Tons of maps with all the latest DNR survey info so you can see what's in all the lakes and look at maps to figure out how to fish them. The books are in most of the bait/tackle stores in the Midwest, or you can go online and Google it.

The other is the DNR Lake Finder Web site here. Of course, it doesn't do you any good until you know the name of a lake, but the map book will get you there, and I'm sure someone will chime in with a few lake names.

Good luck up there! grin.gif

From Lutsen you'll want to head over to the gunflint trail to find some prime laker waters. Gunflint is probably the most popular of the lakes...good numbers and trophy potential. Other lakes worth trying would be loon, east bearskin, flour. Saganaga too of course, but it's in the BWCA, so I'm not exactly sure about the access rules. I would do a resort search and find some fishing reports from them.
