      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 .

Does anyone have any experiences with this resort? Is it comparable to Ballards or Schuster's? We are heading up this winter and have yet to decide on a resort. Thanks.

I have not been to the other 2 but for the past few years I have been staying at Border View with no complaints.

Smaller operation???????? You must be thinking of a different place. Border View is average or bigger compared to the rest of the resorts size wise; plus they own a nearby pheasant hunting preserve. I stayed there about a month and half ago when the Rainy was still open, and was very impressed with the service. We had a couple meals there too, and the food was really good and reasonably proced. I'm sure you'll be happy with your stay there. Good luck, we'll look for a report.

Nice place, been there twice in 5 years time. Why? They are cordial have a clean lodge, the rooms are affordable and the service has been great! I found them before I ever found this site. Now I am hovering and looking at the other posts and looking into some of the site sponsors because I feel I need to support the businesses that help put this site on the net and keep it running. Bottom line, nicely run place but I have nothing else to compare it to in the area. Good luck and good fishing!

Thanks for the info guys! We have narrowed it down to Ballards and Border View. Two top notch resorts from the sounds of it. We are not going until early February so hopefully the fishing is still going strong.

This January will be our second year where I take my 81 year old father. The vehicles they use to get you out on the ice all float (important given other resorts have gone through the ice - (I think(?) it was last year that they lost a few people) and the guides are funny and great! They check on you all the time to make sure you are catching fish. Last year when it was slow they moved us around to keep us on fish. Also, with the meal package you order anything you want off of the menu -- my dad was partial to the ribeye's. Good food, great service, great accommodations. These guys are A++

I've stayed a Borderview a couple of times and found the resort to be on par with just about everyone else. They have a pretty good resturant that serves everything from full course meals to hamburgers and pizza. I wouldn't hesitate about staying there again.

      Hey Moose , sounds like some tough shooting as of late for you at those duckies . Just curious as to what choke you are using ?

      Has anyone ever stored with Oak Narrows Storage before? Need a spot to put a Polaris Ranger for the winter and thinking of calling them for a space, does anyone have any experience or feedback? Any other recommendations would be welcome. Need a 10x10 or 10x12 space likely.
      Thanks!

      the rum is back in its banks so bet the fishing is amazing? Anyone out trying? Where are all of you? I know it’s busy time but let us know what you are chasing.

      Tamarack Island Wilderness Lodge is pretty accommodating. Grassy Narrows Lodge is one of the nicer lodges in my opinion on the Canadian Southern portion. We made a point of stopping at a bunch of locations last year and this is good sized and really nice. At this point it would be my preferred Lodge on that portion of the lake. Both of these are boat into and on an island. Ryan

      Good afternoon guys, I live in Burnsville and I was wondering if anyone has had much luck on Crystal Lake for bass and Pike? I've fished it a few times and only caught 2 bass in a total of 8 hours.  Not looking for any specific locations, but any tips would be much appreciated!!!   Live bait? Plastics? Troll cranks for pike? thanks guys, have a great day. Gabe
