      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 .

My buds and I will be going up to rainy in late may, early june for smallies and eyes, hopefully big wolves as well. Just curious, i saw someone had posted a ? about camping on islands on Rainy lake, can i pull up to any island that is uninhabited and set up a tent, or do i need to be on a designated camping island, like something in the park? How about a small campfire, open pit, enclosed fire ring, none of the above?? My buddy went out with Woody from woody's fairly reliable about a month ago i guess, and he thought that is what woody was telling him. That you can camp on any island. Sorry if i am wrong, would just like to know. We usually camp at Birch Point, and it is cheap there, but if it is free on an island, you bet ya know where i'll be!! laugh.gif thanx for any imput. PS, i believe we will be strictly on MN side of lake

Well if you are planning on camping and being on the U.S. side, I would recommend staying at one of the Park's designated sites. They have fire rings, bear-proof food lockers, and tent pads, and for the time of year you plan on coming up, it shouldn't be too tough to find some of the nicer sites unoccupied.

Getting a tent up in on islands with 3" of duff on top of bedrock is usually a big hassle. I do believe you can camp anywhere, but you should check the website to make sure of that and about building fires too. Not much camping available that's not in the park.

To camp in the Park you need a camping permit. You can pick one up free of charge at the Rainy Lake Visitor Center. Before you go I would suggest going to the Park's website and become familiar with the rules and regs, there are some that are different from state regs. The site is www.nps.gov/voya I hope that you have a great trip.

      This year?   It is new this year.... Apparently a lot of businesses are having trouble hiring seasonal employees.

      I have only been there a few times, but that doesn't make any sense based on my visits.

      I am headed to MN for my annual trip and wanted to target pike on leech. For the past 5-6 years I have been kayaking smaller lakes around the area but now I am back to having a decent boat for bigger waters. Used to fish the east side flats in Headquarters and Boy bay prior to my kayak days. Usual came earlier in the year as well. Bucktails on weedlines still my best bet or do you think crankbaits are the way to go just off weedlines? Better spots than others? Should be there a few days before / after Labor Day.

        I believe the  problem here is a hull with rocker.   At different trim and speed the hull does just that, rocks.   Normally you'd trim in, throttle up and once on plane, throttle back to cruise speed and adjust the trim out.    To be trimmed all in at WOT or even cruising speed would make must hulls plow water at the bow.   In the case with rocker you usually find the porpoise stops when you increase speed.   The fin might be enough to lift the transom up and stabilize it.   Let us know what you do and how it works.

      Went and tried a new spot... 3 snacky cats. One of them took my rod straight into the river and I had to dive in after it. Good times.

      I use the Daiwa ct r also have 2 of them best out there in my opinion.

      Pretty good for me from Monday through Wednesday. Found them from 14-24ft depending on the spot but most fish came from under 20ft. Trust the electronics and motor around til you find a good school. They are hitting pretty well when you find them

      Best wishes for a happy retirement Ace.   I could never have done the guide thing even if I were a good enough fisherman.   It takes a special type of person to deal with all the different people... Congratulations on a job well done.
