      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 .

Thought about trying something different and wondered about the fishing in the Kawishiwi River going east from Farm Lake. Do you need to take a canoe through? It appears you can travel quite a ways without portages (am I just missing them?) Thanks.

The Kawishiwi River is part of the BWCA east of Farm. You need a canoe because no motors are allowed and you also need a BWCA permit.

You can travel for a little bit before it becomes BWCA (1/4 mile?), but after that it is a beautiful stretch of area to paddle through. You don't hit the first portage for a while, but that one is not too bad. After that one there is a longer portage, but there are campsites along the way. The fishing between the two portages is good for bass and northern, it is pretty shallow. There is a portage into Greenstone (out of BWCA) in that area, but it has a killer hill.

We went in at the Farm Lake entry for a trip in 2000. Camped on Clear Lake and did day trips fishing the S Kawishiwi in the area just north of Little Gabbro Lake. Lots of nice walleye and smallmouth. It's two short portages and then a 176 rod carry to Clear Lake. The island site is nice. Or, if you take the N Kawishiwi route, it's 4 short portages and 210 rods to the NE corner of this popular 'triangle' route. Three very nice campsites in this area before it joins the S Kawishiwi again. We've stayed in this area after coming in the Ojibway-Triangle entry from the north.

Get a McKenzie map: #18 - Lake One.

Thanks a lot. This will be the umpteenth trip north, but staying somewhere new for a change of pace. Would it be a good idea to arrange permits ahead of time for day trips?

Your group only needs one entry permit unless you leave the BWCAW and go back in. By 'day trips,' I meant heading out fishing from our campsite that we stayed at for 3 nights, staying within the BDub, and heading back again to have 'em for supper. grin.gif

Do you have a permit yet? Better get on it if you don't and I hope your dates are flexible. Take a look at bwcawdotorg for availability.

We'll be staying at Farm Lake but would like to take a trip or two down (up?) the river. (need to study my Laurentian Divide again).

      Been thinking about breaking out the Jiggin Raps, might have to give that a shot. It's been too crowded out there this weekend with MEA going on.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?

      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.

      Did a few off season projects waiting for Ice. - Underwater camera, Fish Finder, Wheel house mods and the latest converting a 2 cycle Jiffy Lite 90 to an ION battery auger. Got the auger off Craiglist for $10, Drill for $15. Second stage of gear box is a 5 to 1 reduction so got the auger blade to turn at about 250 RPM which I feel is an ideal speed. Gear reduction also doubled the torque of the motor drive. Planning to use the Dewalt 20V ION battery as I already have charger and now converting one of the 1.5 AH batteries to either 9 or 12 AH.  If anyone needs a mid 80's Jiffy Lite 90 motor and clutch PM me. Has great compression, never tried to start it.  Price somewhere between free and a gift. If you did a project this summer, would you care to share them? DJ ION Auger HB.mp4  << Click link for video

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!
