      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 .

Stfcat, ST or anyone else,

We're coming up the 9th to fish a few area lakes and a buddy was wondering about bringing his wheeler. We'll be fishing some lakes off the Echo Trail that have trail access and some bigger lakes like Burntside. Wondering if a wheeler would be a waste of time. Some of us have snowmobiles, so we're not walking(much) without the ATV. What do you think? Leave it home?

Also, if anybody is heading out to Burntside Sun.,Mon. or Tues. and wouldn't mind a few tag-alongs, let me know. None of us has fished lake trout before.( We're up for the "other" trout, Ely winter beauty, and crappies) But have been wanting to try the lakers, and how can we be up there and not try the premier laker lake in the Ely area. Seems like the first place to stop would be Great Outdoors for info and lures, right?

Thanks again for the info!

rascalP,

I see from your posting that you are a person of extremely high intelligence when you realize that TGO is the 1st place to stop when you come to Ely. \:D\:D\:D

Snowmobiles may be better for getting to your destination, but the ATV will be fine, just slower.

When will you be arriving in Ely (day/time)???

I'll be at the shop from 7-3, Saturday and Sunday.

Bring a map of Burntside and a GPS, then we can show you some possible spots to try! cool.gif

rascal, great that you are coming up! Hope you have great luck!

Sled or ATV, as GO said either will do you, sled if you're in the groove and ATV if you aren't in a rush.

I'll be back on the ice Monday, so you can shoot me an e-mail if you'd like.

Let us know how you do, will ya? We're always looking for solid info. No locations, mind you, just what you were after, what type of depths/structure you were on and what baits used.

Man, you gotta love lakers and crappies!

To be fair, two other local bait stores with winter hours and good bait and info are Babe's Bait and Tackle on the western edge of town (the real first place to stop if you're coming into Ely from Tower) and Lucky 7, about half way through town on the main drag.

Good luck out there! grin.gif

rascalP,

Located on Sheridan street, which is Ely's main drag.

It's one block east from Zup's grocery store.

ST and GO,

Thanks for all the info. I'm real pumped on getting back to the winter wonderland. Probably leaving the wheeler home(trailer space) and we'll be fine without it. Stcat, I sent an e-mail but don't know if it went through- our e-mails kind of funky. Maybe see you guys on the ice in the future.
