      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 .

Advice on where to stay on Mille Lacs

Recommended Posts

tightline25

Could you give me some ideas on where to stay while fishing Mille Lacs, I am not familiar with Mille Lacs and need some advice on resorts.

I will be using a small 14' fishing boat, so I would like an area to fish close to the resort in case the weather changes and would like a family type resort (we will be bring younger kids).

Also, we are looking at the week of July 4th, any fishing tips for that time of year would be appreciated.

Thanks for your help.

There are alot of decent resorts on the Pond. For a less windy experience, try the north-end - Red Door Resort. For IMO best fishing try the SE side near Isle - resorts like Appledorns, or Hunters.

Diddo of dtro.....

Appeldoorn's has one of the few sandy beach areas on the lake, in a nice bay. Decent structure close by that you can get to in a 14 footer for some walleye action.

Plus, you get to see a pretty cool fireworks show in that bay!

Another Appledoorns vote. Paul runs a clean, nice resort and sunset bay is all sand with Doe Island right out front and Big Point a short run away, some nice fishing available.

I'd say go to another lake...

You're bringing young kids and only have a 14' boat. I've been on Mille Lacs in a 14 footer when the waves kick up and it is not fun. Even small waves can be scary in a boat like that.

There are a ton of lakes in this state that are a lot safer in your boat that have resorts that will cater to your needs. Why risk ruining your vacation by going to a lake that is likely outside of your boat's comfort zone.

Just my honest opinion...

Was at McQuoid's last weekend. It is an anual trip that a bunch of us have been making for 20 some years, this was the 10th year at McQuoid's. It'll also be the last time there!

Hardly anyone staying there and they still managed to totaly ignore the few of us who were there.
