      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 .

Recommended Posts

Hello

I will be arriving to Rainy lake on May 26. We have reserved a houseboat from Northernaire. I was hoping you guys could point me in the direction of getting a good map (online) and where I could get a fishing report for the area. Also if you wanted to throw in any other tips I would apperciate it.

Thanks in advance

IM NOT THE EXPERT ON THAT AREA, BUT I THINK NORTHERNAIRE WILL PROBABLY HAVE GREAT MAPS FOR YOU, THE ONLINE 1 FROM VOYAGERS NATL PARK SITE YOU COULD PRINT BUT THERES NOT ENOUGH DETAIL ON THAT MAP TO USE.

Michfish,

Northernaire does have good charts provided and they also have maps with fishing spots on them. Dick is knowledgable about the water and fishing so he is a great help as well. However if you want to purchase a map for your own purpose we sell a variety of great maps at Rainy Lake One Stop. Whether you need a laminated one for long term use or just a cheap one to get you through the trip.

As for the fishing report keep an eye on this site for up to date information. I also keep a up-to-date fishing report on my website. Click on the link below and check out reports/news.

If you have any further questions we will be happy to help you!

Take Care and Good Luck Fishing.

I bought the Navionics Gold - Great Lakes West chip for my trip in a couple weeks. Hopefully that one has good coverage for Northwest Bay.

Don't know about the gold chip when I looked at it a couple of years ago, it didn't seem to be that detailed for rainy, but the one I use is the premium north which has great detail for southern canada plus MN, WI, Dakotas, Iowa and I believer MI. it shows rocks awash and similar detail that is on the canadian maps.

you might want to compare them.

Would you settle for a Visa # and an expiration date?
