      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 .

I've never been from Fall to Basswood lake. Can anyone tell me what the long portage to Hoist Bay is now?

The portage from Fall Lake to Hoist Bay on Basswood is called the Four Mile Portage, but it is no longer legal to use. I don't know if it is passable anymore due to the beaver. You will have to portage from Fall Lake to Newton (about 90 rods)then Newton into Pipestone Bay on Basswood. Go down BW Lake until just before Lewis Narrows, hang a right, then portage into Back Bay and continue into Hoist Bay. Other option, Moose, Newfound, Sucker Lakes, over Prarie Portage, then motor down to Hoist Bay. Hope this helps.

RatherB, the portage from Fall to Basswood (Four Mile Portage) is still there & is certainly legal to use. However, the Forest Service no longer maintains the portage. Most of it is wide & smooth & easy, but there is a beaver that has decided to incorporate about 100 yards of the portage into his pond. The water doesn't get more than knee deep, & the old portage-bed is solid, no sinking in the muck. The beavers have also decided to build a second, small dam right across the path which you'll get muddy getting across.

You can use portage wheels on Four Mile. We stopped at Ella Hall lake, so I have no idea what kind of shape the portage is in the last couple of miles up to Hoist Bay.
