      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 .

Family Resort

I'm looking for any feedback on some of the area's better family orientated resorts (with good panfish population/decent walleye). Must be kid friendly with good beach, clean lake, able to do some boating (pulling kids on tube). Any information helps, but would prefer input from experience being at one of the resorts. thanks.

I'd say the resort we go to (Home Bay), but they currently are selling off their cabins to individuals.

This will probably be our last summer at Home Bay, but I hope we can get into one of the other resort on Bottle Lake.

We have stayed at Northern Star Resort for 20 years and it has been nothing but great for us. It is on Little Sand, and is a great place.

I used to work at Northern star in high school. The beach is decent, but like most lakes in the area it gets weedy further out. They keep it raked inside the swim area. Sunfish and small bass like to hang out under the dock and I've seen many kids fish there all day. As far as other fishing goes I guess it would depend on what species you are after. If you have a small enough boat you can go through the river and target smallies or walleyes on big sand or ida. Same goes for home bay resort as all the lakes are connected. I would personally recommend northern star because I know chuck takes good care of the place and takes the time to make sure his guests are comfortable.

Score,

If you have your own boat? I would suggest the brand new facilty in Perham, Mn www.thecactusresortandrvpark.com . The Cactus Resort and RV Park is a brand new state of the art Resort and RV Park with a Bowling Alley, With fantastic food and a water park.

Fish On!!!

We've been going to Eagle Bay Lodge on Eagle Lake. Its got a sandy beach and a heated pool. It also is right next to a golf course. We've caught nice sized crappies right under the docks. There are lots of rock bass and small notherns, which my kids love to catch. There are also some walleyes but they are harder to find.

Eagle lake is connected to Island L and Potato L, although large boats have a harder time getting under the bridge into Potato.

I would have to agree with northern star resort. We spend a week up there every summer and that is the best week of the year for my family and I. Chuck works his butt off to keep everything going and we all appreciate his hard work. The fishing is also great and has a pretty decent beach. I strongly suggest Northern Star

Score,

One of the best I know of is Pine Beach Resort on lake Belle Taine. They have programming specifically for families, beautiful sand beaches the entire length of the resort and no big drop-offs (think swimming safety). The water is super clean too.

Tamarac Resort on Round Lake is a good resort. We have a cabin up the road from them. They have a great beach, good pan & bass fishing and walleye fishing can be good at times. I've never stayed or seen the inside of the cabins though. I would assume Randy and Sheila take good care of them. They are very nice and accomodating people.
