      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 .

Hi,

I am trying to plan a trip somewhere in the middle of June. I have never been there before, but will be with people who have. I'm just wondering where the really good fishing that I'm always hearing about up there is? I'm trying to base my trip on fishing, so any help would be highly appreciated!

Thank you!

Where in particular are you going? I've been going to grand marais every mid june since I was in diapers, and this year will be no exception. The fishing in that area is fantastic! The bass are very active and in the shallows, on a good day you can easily catch 100+, some quality size too. Lake trout are shallow too and easier to catch this time of year. Lot's of good walleye lakes right outside of grand marais that are full of 14 to 17 inch 'eyes.

Just to name a few...Devil Track has good/easy shorelines to troll for walleyes, might hit a nice northern or 2 also, good night fishing lake...Two Island and Crescent lakes are loaded with structure, sunken islands, points, rock bars, etc, lot's of walleyes with possibility of eyes over 24 inches...and if your after lakers, loon and/or gunflint lake has fast dropping shorelines that the lakers cruise, they're easy to catch with spoons or frozen cisco.

Let me know if you want more specific info. I'll shoot you an e-mail. But besides the fishing, the scenery is pretty good too, you'll see moose, deer, eagles, even wolves!

I learned a long time ago that if you want to know where the fish are biting ask a tourist. Most locals don't readily share to specific information. smirk.gif

Now that's an honest statement Gunflint. Either you pay your dues on the water to find um or you pay a guide to find um.

Vague question looking for detailed answers. Thats a hard to reply to. June is a super month with a lot going on.

Gunflint, that's pretty catchy...maybe we should go into the refrigerator magnet business...we could make a fortune selling that slogan at all those gift shops up there. grin.gif

      I resisted converting to braided lines. I liked my TrileneXL. Then, one day about four years ago I decided to spool up with fireline and at first I didn't think I could really feel much difference. Skeptical me, I always held on to that spool loaded with my trusty Trilene. One day I decided to put that mono back on and immediately could feel the difference. It felt like I was fishing with a rubber band. I went back to braided and haven't looked back.

      Last night a flock of geese buzzed the house and Finn went nuts! I think he wants to get out hunting as much as I do.

      Nice video Curt.  Looks like you are having way too much fun out there. Enjoy the time on the water.

      I will probably go out to my parents farm and set up in a pasture. The cattle have it mowed down pretty good. The geese seem tp pile in there pretty good. I won't hit it to hard, just get out a few times and hopefully get my son to get his first goose...

      I have really gone to line Gamma brand line. It is a copolymer. Soft like mono but abrasive resistant as well. I prefer it in #6 for game fish and #4 for panfish.... If I can't find it I fall back to trilene in XL.......
