      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 .

My daughter and I are leaving later this week for a week or so on the trail. We will be camping at the forest campgrounds in the Grand Marais area. Ive fished DevilTrack, 2 Island,East Bearskin and Sag. before but never this time of year. Do these lakes have a thermocline this year? Leeches top bait? Water temp. and levels. Any info would be appreciated.Any permits avail. for Sag. and hows the walleye bite been there?Thanks to all that reply.

I would suspect that some of these lakes develop a thermocline this time of year. I've always fished the first week of august but never with a boat that had a depthfinder. (so not recently anyway). We were on the whitefish chain this weekend and there was a definate theromcline that the fish were clinging to so I would suspect it will be similar up there.

To check availability of permits on Sag you can go the reservation website. It is www.bwcaw.org You can check permit availablity for any day or the whole month. I think Sag is 55 or 56. SOmething like that. You can reserve your permits online there too.

Leechs would be my "top bait" now and I'd be concentrating on the reefs and mid lake humps. Best bait delivery system in that type structure is a jig. Now thats not going to be the only pattern thats going to work but its one you can count on and your going to be able to get onto without a lot of searching.

Panhead,

Be sure to stop by and say howdy. I recommend bringing up some crawler harnesses also. There's still a few left in my lake but it got hit pretty hard this summer. Most showed no mercy. I've got a few permits for sag that you can get on dependining on how long you'll be up here.

Gunflint, will stop by and see ya at some point. If I can get the camping site on your lake that Ive used in fall, might stay there the whole week. My daughters 13 so I figured we better do this , this year as it wont be long before going anywhere with pa is a no no. Hope I can get her a least one walleye fish fry. That may just get her hooked on your area. Hope to see moose or a bear, always have in fall but perhaps in summer their not around much ? Thanks for your help.

What day are you planning on arriving? What spot did you want? You should be able to see a moose. There's been a cow with 2 calfs hanging around the campground all summer. And the bulls should start getting "frisky" in another week or 2. Bear have been scarce this year. I've only seen 4 all summer but 3 of them while I've been fishing in the south arm.
