      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 .

The girlfriend and I are going to go camping/fishing up at hungry jack lodge and plan on fishing the lake, anyone ever fished this lake, and provide me some areas, what I will expect. We will be up there memorial day weekend.

If you like smallies you're in for a treat.There's big walleyes in there too but they can be hard to get to because of the smallies. Forest (the owner) at Hungry Jack knows the lake and will give you good advice.

Try walleye fishing off thier dock in the evenings, there are some big waleyes in there. I lost my biggest one there during memorial weekend several years ago. Also lots of smallies.

I haven't been there in 10+ years, planning on hitting it this year if the water on gunflint is too rough. Has the lake trout reintroduction produced anything yet? The DNR lake finder wasn't too helpful on it.

We've had a couple of major cold fronts come through this past week. Things have slowed to a crawl. It's warming up today though so things may change. Our lake went from surface temps of 59 to 52.5

I have not been uo there in the summer, but I see from your avatar that you're a sled-head. Each winter a group of us head up the Hungry Jack Lodge for some great trail riding and laker ice fishing. If you have not been there in the winter I would give it a try. It's my favorite trip each year. You may be able to find some lakers in Moss this time of year. I have heard that Leo lake can also be good rainbows or browns. The others are right about the smallie rep that the lake has. Forest should be able to put you on the fish. Wish I was headed there too this weekend. Good luck!!

I used to fish that lake with my family back in the late 70's early 80's. Our favorite spots for smallies was a bay just below Honeymoon bluff. as far as walleye go there is a reef in front of honeymoon bluff about a 1/2 mile or so. look at a map to find it. Lots of good memories.
