      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 .

Just booked a trip for the family for the second week in July at White Eagle resort. Anyone have any comments about this resort? Is it a good place for kids?

And most importantly...How's the fishing in July??

I've fished Rainy a few times...Is Vermillion along the same lines as far as fishing goes?

not sure how old your kids are but we stayed there last summer. They have a basketball court, some indoor table games (don't really remember what they were), one of those water trampolines, water bikes and kayaks. Water is kinda deep off the end of the docks if that is a concern. Prob more stuff than i remember too

I've stayed at White Eagle the second week of July for the past 4 years, and we will be up there again this year. It's a great place to stay for both those who fish and those who want to relax. Although of the 52 weeks in a year, I certaily feel that it may be the absolute worst week to go to Vermilion (from a fishing standpoint)but it works for my family. The great scenery more than makes up for the additional effort it takes to boat fish that time of year!!

We do most of our fishing on the East end of the lake and have had pretty good fishing all summer. It took a few trips with some of the guides and talking to some of my buddies on the lake to get a better understanding of the lake. I suggest that you hire a guide early in week and let them know what you want from the guiding trip, your experience on Rainy and I am sure you will not be disappointed . My experience with the guides and the fishing on the lake has always been excellent. Good luck and have fun.

that time of year...on a quiet moment one can find a good rock pile to slip bobber fish up that way....not to mention the great evening fishing off white eagles dock...lots of fish then but never fish on the 4 or 5...

Thanks for the replies guys! I'm looking forward to the trip. I've heard you can do well in July with a Shad rap in the bays.

My kids are 9 8 6 3.....Should be fun!

Are we close enough to where we can sneek off into a secluded bay...or are we on the wrong side of the lake?

There is plenty of places in Head of the lake bay to get out of the wind, or to get away from all the boat traffic. You can troll cranks out in the basin for walleyes or cast for Pike just around the corner from the resort. There is some pretty good Smallmouth action around Taylors island and the shoreline on the north side of the bay. Even if the Walleye action is a little slow that time of year, there are plenty of other opportunities to catch fish. You'll find plenty of panfish near by to keep the kids happy as well.

You won't regret coming to Vermilion and White Eagle is one of the finest resorts on the lake.

      WARNING a buddy was on  MELISSA and was aiming towards the crappie hole in the NE Corner/First break to fish out there last night.  He was checking ice and was having 10" of ice then hit 3"!  Please be careful out there.  Needless to say he turned around and went back to the access.

      Best use I can think of for a selfie stick. Great fish.

      I will second what Icehawk said.... some good lakes around you. Briggs chain is close, some very nice fish in that system. I tend to fish fairly shallow(under 10ft) most of the time 6-8 right in or on the edge of the weeds for the gills.

      Looking for some folks in the area. Have you guys ever fished Borden lake near Garrison? I fished Maple lake last week with a lot of small crappie caught.  I let them all go, biggest was 9". Fished few lakes in that area with no luck. Even went to my little honey home with little succes Looking take the GF out tomorrow morning.  Any ideas? Seen someone posted about crappie in Pearl. 
    • HoleHoppingGills
      I was out last Sunday and there was solid 3.5 black ice. It's been s week now so guessing around 6 inches in northeast bay.  All crappie I caught were small besides on 9 incher I let go.

      Pearl Lake has been lights out for crappies in that 10+ inch range this year, finally,  find 13-16 fow and then drill holes until you see suspended fish. When you find them I like a 1/10oz. Swedish pimple (silver/glow) with 2 waxies, keep it above the fish and they’ll come up for it.

      I heard reports Friday of 3-5 inches out of Bayport.

      I'm on vacation until January 2nd if anyone wants to meet up and go fishing let me know I've got all my own gear 95% of the time I fish alone. Willing to drive anywhere or help with gas or what ever. Going to try a local lake in the morning for some eyes and panfish unless someone has any other suggestions. Mostly a CPR guy but it's also nice to occasionally bring some home for the family.
