      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 .

Low Water - Boat size?

Recommended Posts

MNFisherman06

This spring will hopefully be our first time on the mighty Rainy, so I have a few questions.

First, I have a 17 ft deep haul boat. With the low water, is that going to be a problem?

Also, how difficult is it to navigate the river? Do you travel far from the landing? And, is the Birchdale landing the only place to put a bigger boat in?

Last, how off base are we to plan for next friday or the following wednesday?

Thanks to all that respond, it's much appreciated.

Low water shouldn't be too much of an issue for most of the river. There are a few areas that need to be looked out for, but just don't take off full bore down stretches of water that you don't know and you'll be fine. One main area to avoid is a rock bar that just out almost into the middle of the river just upstream from the birchdale landing.

It's not difficult to naviagate the river for the most part and there are several landings that will accomodate a boat of that size. Birchdale, Vedas, the one in Baudette, Frontier, and a know there is at least one more that I cannot think of at this time. My best fishing last year came about 100 yards away from the vedas landing.

I don't think that you're off base planning for next friday. With the weather it should be a good date, but those who are there all the time will have to make that judgement call, because I am currently stuck in Duluth going to school. The earlier, the better because as soon as the Big Fork, Littlefork, and Black rivers open fishing shuts right down.

Take Care and Good Luck Fishing!!
