      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 .

Public Landings on Vermillion's East side

Recommended Posts

Kirk_L

Hello everyone, First off I'd like to wish everyone a fun & safe Opener. This is my first post on your forum, I enjoy reading it.

My question is what is the best landing for a visitor like myself who'd like to fish the East end of the lake the first week of June. (I'll be driving from the Ely area)

I see there are landings in Stuntz Bay and McKinley Park, I wasn't sure if they were open to the public or not. (I don't mind paying a reasonable user fee since I know it costs something to maintain a landing. This may be another topic entirely, but are there plans to put a landing in the new State Park in the future ?

Thanks everyone and good fishing.

There is a nice DNR landing in Everett Bay and then there is also the marina at the casino which is a pay launch.

The closest landing coming from Ely is Stuntz Bay. Whether it is public or not I have never been able to figure out. It is listed as a public launch, but there are signs indicating that you must be a Stuntz Bay Association member to use the launch. You can become a member for $10 or you can launch there and expect a note indicating it is not a public launch on your vehicle when you get back.

The best public launch on the East end is located at HooDoo Point.

Good landing and a lot of parking space.

McKinley Park is also a good spot if there is not a heavy wind from anywhere Northerly. Parking there also. About $5 a day I believe.

Everett Bay or the Casino are also good spots.

Welcome to HSO!

Forgot to mention Shamrock Marina off of Highway #77 also!!

A little farther west from McKinley is Hoodoo Point puplic launch. It is in Pike Bay but not too far from the main lake.

One other possibility is in Daisy Bay. There is a public launch on Birch Point Rd., adjacent to Daisy Island. It's not the eastern-most launch, but it is in the east, and if you have a small boat, you might not want to cross Big Bay if the wind is strong. This launch is well protected, but has limited parking.
