      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 .

We are coming up in 3 weeks for a house boat trip through voyagaire on crane lake and was wondering if anyone knew of a good place to buy bait in that general area. Also any fishing tips or locations would be greatly appreciated, we are all rookies to the area.

Thanks for any help.

mthunter,
There is a bait shop in Cook Mn on the east side of hwy 53 just past the 66 gas station. They will oxygen pack your minnows and leeches. There is also a bait shop in Orr Mn on the west side of hwy 53. I think they will oxygen pack your bait but I am not sure.
As far as fishing, head into Namakan lake look for deepwater structure around the islands or rock piles. Many of those rock piles are marked with white markers. Fish the deeper edges 20 to 35 ft using Jig minnow-leech or lindy spinner rigs with leeches or crawlers. The key is to fish areas that have deep water nearby. You'll need weights in the 3/4 to 1oz range. Good luck

There is a gas station/tackle shop very close to the Voyagaire houseboats. I cannot remember the name of the place, but I believe it was a red building. Maybe some others on this board can provide a name.

I believe they had a decent selection of tackle. The reason I say "I believe" is that we only purchased live bait there and did not look at their tackle. The live bait we purchased at this place served us fine for our houseboat adventure.
