      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 .

In yesterdays paper, there was an article about sled dogging into BWCA for Lakers. Man, that looks like a blast!! Any suggestions on where to start or who to go through? That, or if anyone has done this, do you mind sharing your experience. Definitely something I want to try.

I am not sure if Wintergreen's dog sled lodge does that or not, but that would be a good place to start. I just typed in "dog sled ely mn" into google and a bunch of stuff came up-check that also. Maybe Great Outdoors knows something...

Yeti,

There are several dog sledders that can take you fishing for a day, or an overnight trip. I don't know if I can post names, so call me at 218-365-4744, and I can give you names of a few of the mushers that would specialize in the kind of trip you are seeking. ooo.gif

I've done two trips (one fishing and one not) and they were both a great time. Winter camping is an option and can be very enjoyable if you prepare correctly. I had good luck with both operations out of Ely. Don't know if I am supposed to name them on this forum so I won't. I'm sure if you check around you will find a first class operation.

Yeti, just log onto the Ely Chamber of Commerce site at www.ely.org. You should find a bunch of info there, and you can also phone the chamber directly.

Kelly Murphy is the musher I know best who does this, though there are MANY around Ely who do it and do it well. I'm friends with Kelly and his lead man, and they bring clients all winter into Knife Lake, Basswood and other lakes up that way. Day trips and overnight camping both. Kelly hauled out a 20+ last year up in that country.

Jim, it's no problem posting advice based on your personal experience about which musher to use. As long as it doesn't read like ad copy and no commercial Web site link or contact info is given (posting that info is reserved for FM sponsors).

I went back in 1999 with Kelly Murphy and would have to agree with Stcatfish though I think Kelly had a different partner back then. We didn't go to Knife for lakers with him but had him drop us off at Rams Head. After I wished we would have gone to Knife. He was real accomadating and made the trip in and out a whole lot of fun.
