      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 .

YOUR Place

As things are quieting down a bit between seasons, I've been thinking of the places I've been to on the lake, and the places I want to see. I'm just getting to really know the lake, and can't wait for the ice to leave completely and explore a bit more! By far, my favorite place is the French Portage. Just awesome scenery with some great walleye fishing mixed in. A little tricky to navigate, but a beautiful place to go. Behind that, you really can't beat Monument Bay. Unbelievable fishing for nearly all species of fish the lake holds. What about you? What is YOUR favorite place on the lake to be, and what are you fishing for?

Whitefish Bay, by far. Clean water, most dramatic landscape/rocks on the lake and some darn good laker, smallie, pike and muskie fishing.

Nothing wrong with Big Narrows/Tranquil Channel area too! Good thread, interesting to see the different responses.

Tough question Frenzy. But as Hemlock said about Whitefish Bay.........awesome beauty. The forest starts a bit higher up the rocks in that part of the lake and the white/grey rock really adds some contrast. And every time I've gone thru the Annie Island narrows, I get a rush from the scenery. I think if it's not THE prettiest place around, it's close. And then there are the lakers, walleyes, muskie, bass, pike, even the odd whitefish.

Of course heading across Big Traverse on a calm day watching, the islands appear is a treat of it's own. Big water has a beauty of its own. Just can't find much ugly anywhere you look. Try to imagine the south shore all cabins, like so many lakes. Ugh.

I love Big Narrows for the fishing and islands but for me there is something about going back into Seperation Point. It might be cause I landed my first eye there.

Head up through Tranquil channel, then take a left into the Turtle bay entrance, then hang a right (slow down) and enjoy the entrance into Quandary bay.

Nirvana.

Someday 1/2 my ashes will be there, the other 1/2 at No. 12 Augusta National.

leave from Nestor Falls, follow the south route as charted on the map, and go through little blueberry split, right past bald rock, then to hay island,around rabbit point,then on to miles bay. Soooo pretty, and protected from wind, many spots for multi species, and just a beautiful ride!!

Here is how my trip comes together.

I enjoy seeing the customs at Warroad on my way to the Angle(means we are almost there).

The gravel road makes it feel so rustic and remote(all the wildlife along the way)

The 2 big pines right next to the road after entering back into US.They act as gates to the Angle, they are taller than most other trees nearby. (anyone else know where they are?)

Youngs bay We are here!!!

Monument bay area

Whitefish Bay

Johnston passage

Tranquill channel

The narrow entrance to Quandry and what ever bay that is

Just being up there is great and I honestly cannot say one area is more pretty than the other. As they all are very pretty.

I can't believe you've noticed those trees as well. We call them the "Twin Trees" and have clocked them to be 13-15 minutes away from Youngs Bay, depending on the driver smile.gif

The Big Narrows are a very good place, but my favorite is the Ash Rapids area. I don't think you can find a more peaceful place on earth, when the sun is setting, and there are a million differnt colors reflecting on the lakes surface, you know you are somewhere special!

Gives me the chills, just thinking of some of these places...Ladyofthewoods, you know the lake!

I'm very familiar with the twin pines. That's my mark as well that we're almost to the angle.

      Went up north grouse hunting it was fun. I must say having a dog makes it better.  This weekend is duck opener and I am jacked up for it.

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.

      Captain Acorn, I use Gamagatu  octopus hooks. Size 4 for crawlers and size 2 for minnows. Red, black, chartreuse, and pink , mostly red and black. I use orange and green glow soft beads at times. (Worked today!) Cliff
