      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 .

Huddles Resort is a great place to take the family. You would not be disappointed.

I would vote for Huddles. I have a cabin near Huddles and I am always impressed with all the activities for families and kids that Roy puts together.

We have stayed at Anderson's Cove several times. Would recommend it to anyone. Great people, fishing close and easy to fish in pretty much any weather.

Andersons cove is good for fishing but the pool is "ok" and their beach and playground kinda sucks. Be advised they also have a large seasonal campsite there which also uses the facilities and can get quite rowdy when the alcohol comes out along with some fireworks. My parents have a cabin on the "Loop road" by the resort.

Alot depends on age of kids. laugh

Darth, we were in the same Boat you were last year and these guys turned me on to Hiawatha beach resort- I cant say enough good things about the resort. Not sure on the age of your kids but our family loved spending our vacation there.They have a kids fishing trip, Build your your rocket Day where they let the kids shoot off the rockets they built also.My wife loves the really nice sand beach with all the water toys and the indoor pool and hot tub feels good after a day of outdoor fun. The only complaint we had was the small campsites but those really werent all that bad either. We already made our reservation for this year. Good luck on your decision.

My vote is for Anderson's Northland. Took my non-fishing family up there last summer. Asked them to give the up-north experience a chance. This winter my wife and kids reserved the week and paid the deposit for their vacation this summer, I can come if I want. Needless to say, they had a great time. Plenty of activities for all.

Thanks

We like Hiawatha Beach Resort in the North end of Steamboat Bay. Nice sandy South-facing beach; big indoor pool/hot-tub, gameroom for the kids on rainy days; bait on hand; sturdy docks and nice slips with gas & electric; excellent dockhands that work their butts off; Monday evening barbecue/camp gathering; good food, bar; laundry facilities; lodge/cabins/campground; easy access to sand flats, sand point, Cedar Point, Walker Bay, narrows, Mounds, Pine Point, Goose Island/Goose Island flats area.

Red Rock

location wise its down near the south end of the big lake and you've got a lot of "structure" to fish. Reefs around Pelican Island and down on the south shore itself quite a bit of rocks. I really like that area during the Summer for walleyes using leeches and crawlers.

Slip bobbers around dusk with leeches can be really good in the right spots.

I haven't been to the resort in a long time so I can't provide much info on the resort, we used to muskie fish with a guide out of there "back in the day"

Heading to Adventure North in the morning! I want to leave now!!!! Sadly, up late and can't sleep I'm so fired up! So here's my two cents on this topic:

There are so many great resort options on Leech it's ridiculous, as compared to say Winnie or Mille Lacs or LOW (not to say they don't have nice resorts, cause they do. And I have stayed at some often). But for my family Leech is THE LAKE of choice. If you have young kids that just want to play in the sand at waters edge, I could easily name 5 resorts that have just the setup. But if your kids are little older and just learning to fish, maybe want to get closer to the fishing spots without having to cross big water? No problem. And if you're "I'm fishing no matter how big the waves", there are resorts that fit that bill too.

Go to Leech Lake Area Chamber of Commerce website and check out Places to Stay. Lots of resort options and info there.

I highly recommend Brindley's Harbor Resort. Great location in Traders Bay so it is easy to get anywhere on the lake quickly, great owners, and the service is unmatched. I've been staying at resorts all over Minnesota my entire life and Brindley's is by far the best I've been to. They also have the best harbor to park your boat into, they clean your fish for you, etc.

Best thing to do is to go to resort websites and see what amenities each has and which are most important to you.

2nd for Brindley's. Went there for the first time last summer, going up again in the end of June. Great location on the lake.

If you got a good sized boat opt for a main lake resort, but if you need days out of the wind I would opt for Baileys on Kabekona bay.

Dana always has great advice anywhere on the lake.
