      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 .

CFS Primitive Campsites

Dances with Walleye

Talk amongst me and my buddies has already turned to the summer of 2007... In between the multiple weddings next year (One of which is my own) we're trying to work out a Fishing trip for us guys...

One thing that has come up is the primitive campsites around Cut Foot Sioux...

I'm wondering how one goes about reserving one of those sites (Or is it just first come, first serve?)

Also I'm wondering how many there are...

I'm aware of 4... (I've seen them while fishing the area, but have never physically been to one.)

1 on Battle Point... 1 on the North west corner of McAvity Bay (Sort of tucked up in the corner behind the point... And two relatively near each other on the shore opposite of McAvity Island...

Are there any others?

Has anyone stayed at any of these?

(Normally when I'm up I Camp at the Deer Lake Campgrounds, but I'm thinking about taking a more rustic approach next year.)

*Also... What's the deal with the primitives and bathroom facilities/waste disposal etc...

Thanks in advance!

If you go to reserve america (Contact Us Please) you can book campsites right from there. I've used it several times.

I know you can book the Deer Lake's and Seelye's (As I book through that site everytime... But can you really do the primitives as well?

I'll have to look into it...

Thanks...

I camp at West Seeleye Bay several times a year with a fishing buddy. He has a bug up his butt to try one of the primitive sites. We stopped and talked to a lady working in the Information Center about these sites. There are quite a number of them on the west shore of Mcavity Bay and a good number of them on Battle Point. Also some on the east shore of Mcavity. I think there are at least 20 to 30 sites. She told us they are first come first serve - she actually called a ranger cause she wasn't sure about this. She said the best place to put in is at Mosomo Point. They have parking for a lot of rigs. She said you may want to mention to the camphost at Mosomo Point campgrond that you are leaving your rig there and will be out camping at one of the primitive sites and he will check your rig every so often to make sure it is ok. My friend checked a couple of sites on the west side of Mcavity and said there was a trail from campsite to campsite and eventually he came across a crapper.

Good luck with the marriage and enjoy the camping!
