      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 .

Seagull to Knife Lake Trip

Recommended Posts

Has anyone made this trip? Just curious as the DNR lakefinder shows that the south end of Knife is only 6.9 miles from the Seagull landing. How are the portages?

Thanks in advance,

Steve

It took me around 11 hours to get from seagull to the west side of the south arm of knife. Portages are OK at best.

I would say 11 Hours is pretty much right. It was about four years ago I did that trip. There is some great fishing in South Arm of Knife. There is a campsite that sits right on the point just down the shore from the entry point after the portage. I little creek runs into the bay. Great campsite with exceptional fishing from shore early in the season. We just killed the walleyes and smallies with just a slip bobber and a leech. Fun times.

I think we went hard for about 8 hours the first day and stayed on Esther Lake.

Depending if you are doing a loop or not, but I know some of those portages had alot of blown down in them from the wind storm a few years back and if I remember fight the portage into Esther is a short but very straight up and straight down portage. You will have some beautiful canoeing ahead of you.

Best of Luck

Thanks guys,

If I put in at the Seagull landing and plan to make it to one of the first campsites on Ogiskemuncie, how long would you thing that would take?

Walleye, quick question also; you talked about taking 8 hours to get to Ester lake, the route I was looking at is Seagull-Alpine-Jasper-Kingfisher-Ogish-Annie-Jenny-Eddy-Knife. If you were taking Ester were you coming from Sag?

Thanks,

Steve

Dead Sea-

My bad. We did start on Sag and then did the loop all the way around to Seagull, but I am familiar with all of those lakes. You will have a fun route to go through. I would reccomend doing a little fishing on Alpine. I have heard it is a dynamite lake at times.

Best of luck
