      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 .

Isle Royale Fishing

Recommended Posts

Has anyone done any fishing off of isle royale? I'm going there in august for an overnighter...will only have a couple hours in the evening to paddle a canoe along the island (weather permitting of course). Would it be worth it to buy a temporary MI license and try for some lakers or will they not be nearshore at all that time of year? I've never been to the island before and am basically using this little excursion out there to help me plan for a longer stay next year. If anyone has fished out there I'd love to hear how it is. Thanks.

in summer we only have used riggers...don't think you could jig for them in august, i've only been there twice so i'm not an expert or anything. Man the lakers were great though and they were BIG!!!

I'll assume you are riding over on one of the ferry boats from Grand Portage. Where will you be based from, Rock or Windigo? You'll have a long paddle to get to lakers from the Park Service dock at Windigo. Rock is a more likely bet if you've only a couple hours.

Tell us where you'll be and what kind of gear you'll have available. That'll help with ideas on what to try.

I'll be staying at rock harbor. I'm not gonna be decked out, I'll probably just bring a few spoons, maybe some jointed rapalas. I fish along the shore in a canoe outside of grand marais in june and do pretty well. But I suppose things are alot different out on the island later in the summer like that. Is it pretty much just lakers out there? What about salmon or coaster brookies?

Here's a couple of threads that may be helpful. I wouldn't hesitate to bring your gear along. Thanks to the generous advice from the guy's on this forum, I had a great time fishing.
