      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 .

Hello all- Have always gone to Kab area in past, tent camp, and need some advice on your area for next week. Not going into BWCA to fish, would like some ideas for camping, fishing from canoe or small hp boat (to rent and where) and general smaller lakes for camp/fish . Not bringing our boat this time up. I'm the little woman so not big on areas with known bears coming into camp every day. Thanks F10

Fiesty:

Try the Lodge of Whispering Pines on Big Lake. The lake is north of Ely on the Echo trail. They have a few campsites that are right on the water's edge.

Last time we camped there, we had no problems with bears coming into camp at night, but that might have changed. They were running dog sleds and the dogs were more than likely keeping them away.

Nice drive up to the lodge, very peacefull, they have canoes or boats to rent also.

Big Lake is a beautiful location. I'm in and out of there all the time photographing.

Thanks, just worried that the jazz festival might make getting a site difficult that close. Any ideas on where we can rent a small fish boat with motor. Love the Bears, just not as midnight guests, but will have our Irish Setter with us this time, she's been soooo goood all summer and needs a break. More worried about her reaction and barking at them. F10

You should be able to rent those from either of the resorts on Big Lake.
