      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 .

mhumpal. Can't help with any hot spots as I haven't had the time to make it up there this year. I can tell you that the best map I have seen is the one made by fishing hot spots. You can find them at Gander Mountain.

Just returned from camping/fishing on Namakan. We had a difficult time finding a camping site, it took us at least two hours to find an open one. Also, after talking with other campers we heard they are still trying to catch the bear (see previous posts) on Namakan Island. They have bear traps set up, but the campsites are still open. The campers I talked with said the bear made an appearance and drove them off the site. I wouldn't recommend camping on Namakan Island. Any of the resorts or gas stations will have good maps. We were very successful fishing. Caught some walleye that were suspended at 20 feet in 35-40 feet depths using jigs. Also had luck on the reefs by the wolf packs and pike island. They were biting on leeches, crawlers and minnows.

mhumpal,
We were also just up on Namakan this past weekend and found fishing to be good. Fish are from 25 to 35 ft and taking both leeches and crawlers, we used lindy rigs but i'm sure jigs would've worked also. Try to fish the windy side of the reefs/islands.
As Jill said the bear on Namakan island has not been caught, he has also been raiding Kubel island site. The west campsite is closed and a beartrap is set up there.
Let us know how you do, I will be back up there in a couple of weeks.

Jill, where/when did you guys go out?? We went out wed. night and found 6 open sites right away, could not believe how empty it was. Ended up running up to the Kettle falls end to camp (staying as far away from Namakan as possible!) could have used less east wind but a good weekend overall. No big fish (17" smallie tho) but lots of slots. Have a good one.

Xplorer,
We went out looking for sites at about 2pm on Wednesday. We went all over Namakan. In fact, we even asked people when they were leaving. We ended up camping at the Old Dutch Bay site on Wednesday night, but it was on mainland and didn't have a bear locker. We moved to the Williams Island campsite on Thursday and stayed there the rest of the time. Someone in our group caught a 20 inch walleye, and another person caught 5lb. bass. We caught a number of walleye under the slot, but we also caught quite a few keepers.
