      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 .

June 2 to June 3rd

Big Rock lake is located in the south west corner of Clearwater County. It's located on the Height of the Land Road which runs from State Hwy 113 all the way to State Hwy 200. It's about halfway though to 200.

It's a beautful lake, there is also a small channel back to another part of the lake that doesn't get hit too often. There is a good population of walleys, crappies, and bluegills in the lake. And there are also numerous lakes out there with great fishing.

Plan on fishing, eating, cooking, sleeping, fishing, and whatever else. Should be a great time. You can chose to bring your camping gear and camp, or just fish for the evening and head home. I'll be camping out there regardless.

Let's get a roll call going.

Here is a map of the area

Hahaha!! My thoughts exactly BB!!

Ok I spent the weekend out there this weekend, what a beautiful lake. The fishing was so-so but I had a few guys that are a little green when it comes to fishing so I just messed around and got them on some 'Gils and crappies. They were pretty abundant, and it turned out to be a beautiful day yesterday after the wind died down.

Looking forward to the Get together!!!!!

You can sleep in Jim's tent though grin Related....why wouldn't you guys want women there ? I know I don't have the "rugged good looks" that Jim does, but would gladly make room for his girlfriend in my tent shockedwink

Pretty quiet here, is this outing still a go? I am watching the weather and unless it sounds like rain I am still interested in going. Looking forward to meeting Leechbait (Jim) and picking his brain a little about all the little ponds I have been looking at while snowmobiling and 4 wheeling up in that neighborhood. Let's get the ball rolling!!!

LOL. Careful now...

This should be a fun deal- I encourage anyone who can make it to go! I wish I could, but I'm committed for the weekend.

I might be able to make it on sunday, definitely can't do an overnighter with a 5 month old but could swing an all day trip. My parents had a cabin on pickerel lake when I was a kid and I love that area. If I can make it I could bring my boat so if others are thinking of being able to do the same thing as me and don't have a boat, no worries.

Hmmmm....I might just have to swing out for this. Looks like a hoot! Any specific time people plan on getting out there? My father in law might be coming up for the weekend and I promised him some fish. If Ottertail doesn't pan out, I might be able to talk him into a bit further trek...

I believe anytime will work, I plan on being out there Friday night. Most likely by myself. So Obviously I'll be there all day saturday thru sunday. I'm going to leave my number here so that if anyone gets twisted up in the brush they can call me. 218 204 1633. Feel free to call.

I'll mark the turn into the lake with something... not quite sure what yet but I"ll make sure to post it here when I do. Also when coming in on the Height of the Land Road from hwy 113, it's 5 miles or so back. You will run into two road signs along the way, one is the Angus Lake Road, which turns to the west, and a little farther up the road you will run into LITTLE rock lake road, which turns to the east. Those are good reminders along the way saying that you didn't miss your turn lol. It's about a 1/2 or so past the Little Rock lake road where the access to Big Rock is, which is on the east side of the road. I don't want to make it sound complicated but when you turn off to the Big Rock Access once you get to the landing take a right and that will lead you around the first bay into the campground areas!
