      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 .

Does anyone know how the skeeters have been or the sand flies. I'm heading up there the week of the 4th. Just wondering if we are gonna get eaten alive! I've heard the army worms are out in full force. Any info would be good so I can prepare to scratch away! Thanks!

Thanks npike! Hopefully the bugs will remain the same. It sounds from your other posts that you had some problems with your houseboat. We too are taking one but from Voyagaires in Crane Lake. I hope that we don't experience the same problems that you all did. We have used them before and they were an exellent outfitter/rental to deal with and their boats seem to be in excellent condition. I would highly recommend using them next time. Thanks for the info!

npike,

I will post when we return. If you want to check out their boats before hand, they do have a website. Just do a search under Voyagaire Houseboats. Last time we used them we had absolutely no problems and all of their equipment was first class. I will tell you how we did! Thanks!

npike,

The trip was fabulous again! Voyagaire's boats are 1st class and their knowledgable staff and help are fantastic! No worries on the boat, new engines, everything was great! Fishing was subpar but the fun and sun was great! It did rain one full day (Friday July 5th) that was the day that fishing was the best. I used a bobber and a leach and just tossed it out off the back of the boat, stayed out of the rain, played cards, and watched my bobber as some walleyes and bass fell victim to my hook! This was a couples trip (there were 6 couples on the boat) most were non-fisherman so they all didn't fish. The bugs were kind of bad as the mosquitos would decide to come out at sundown but after about 11pm, they were non existant. Great trip and I highly recommend this outfit!!!!

We mostly fished on Namakan. That is where we stayed the whole time we were there. I think the wierd weather patterns that week screwed the fishing up a little. We were at a beach site which was marked as EBEL's (kind of ironic). It was a great site! About 150' of sand beach. Nice for the ladies to lay out, swim etc while we fished or drank beer! Like I said, if you go again, voyagaires is the way to go. We did experience a little prop damage but their great staff (these were knowledgable adult mechanics) had our prop changed out in 15 minutes on a crappy rainy day. All other problems were non exisistent. Except we didn't bring enough ice so they drove out 9 bags of ice for us! 1st class outfit! They don't have a DVD player and we opted not to bring the TV so they may not claim to be as fancy as EBEL's but their boats are extremely nice. I think Namakan is the better of the lakes that we traveled on for fishing (Sand Point, Crane) not sure though. Better luck next time! I hope you guys go again with a better outfit.
