      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 .

Fishing Namakan

Recommended Posts

OO Buckshot

Hi All, first time poster, long time fisherman. Last year stayed on Cutover Island and had a great time fishing. This year we are heading to the East end of Namakan. We will be there June 15-23. Would like info on campsites around Blind Pig, Your Island or My Island, are they as nice as on Kabby? Is the best way to get there through Crane Lake? I heard there was an outpost store on the Canadian side of Namakan, is this true? Any Fishing info would be nice too, might save us some time finding the eyes. Thx to you all.

Buckshot, the easiest way to the east end of Nam is from the Ash river.

that "canadian outpost"...you were inquiring about is actually on the east side of upper sandpoint lake(canadian side)by harrison's narrows... i'll be camping in grassy bay in 2 weeks... will be going for supplies there i'm sure...unless there's another canadian outpost on namakan i'm not familiar with or maybe it's moved to namakan...

Thank you Polar Bear and Jon. smile.gif Glad to hear about that outpost store in the area.
Other than a Canadian licence do we need any other permits for customs to fish Canadian waters?
Good luck on the fishing trip Jon, wishing you fair weather and a hot bite.

Buckshot,
I believe that you will need an Ontario remote border crossing permit to land or fish their waters, unless there is a customs office at the outpost.
I dont have my map with me but there are many nice camping spots in that area, some with sand beaches. I would try jigging/rigging around islands using your electronics to find fish. Dont be afraid to look deeper than you might expect, down to the 30' areas. This area should fish very similar to Kabetogama.

Thanks Xplorer, Infomation we need to check out. And we will be trying out the fishing tips also, got more electronics on our boat than a real fisherman needs to have. But as you all know "He who dies with the most toys wins".

Buckshot, if you are staying on blind pig island, Bergers Resort is also a outpost located near lady rapids just east of where you are staying. They have a store there with gas and bait. Say hi to Lori if you go there, she runs the store.

      Anyone on here been out on White Bear yet? I've seen a few people out off the Ramsey Beach area where the truck went through the other day but have not had a chance to venture out myself. Normally I hit the Belaire area early ice. Thanks!

      wealthwood had1.5 last weekend, i saw no one out but 1 person on the whole west side last wsat afternoon. thi week the resorts on the north end and east are reporting decent ice. check with the resorts before you go out. id stay away from public accesses now and follow a staked road.
    • MrSchrute
      Have you fished out there before? Is it worth putting some time in on the ice? Thanks-
    • walleyewalby
      so went to go scope it out, 15 trucks on the northside, wheelers and houses out. Baxter is packed. last nights fresh snow is showing alot of active cracks too... i may wait a coujple days for blue and check out baxter instead.

      Anyone know of the ice conditions in the oak narrows area?
    • blue gill hunter
      Has anyone heard of any ice reports on Big Marine?
    • dindunuffins
      I heard  6" or so around terrys..  id figure public access must be close to the same?
    • gimruis
      Dude, seriously just stay off the ice until its safer.  No fish is worth risking your life for.

       Ice is scary on blue. I was out last weekend fishing next to open water north end is kinda sketchy still my buddy has been there every day this week. Still cant get close to the points only 1 inch there. Thicker by north end but its all older ice from the first freeze lots of cracks. The bay to the east towards the points and whole south end were wide open last sunday. Had 4 inches right next to it we fished as close to the point as we could get. We were 40-50 ft from open water and we got one eye. But ive never been so scared on ice before it was cracking very badly very loud and could feel the ice shifting. The walk back to access in the dark had my heart pounding and i didnt tjink we would make it back without one uf us goin through but we did make it.
