      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 .

BFH Musky Report

Recommended Posts

Tim_Anderson

Musky action is starting to heat up in the area, although Mille Lacs remains slow.

We fished Mille Lacs Friday and Saturday night, both the south end rocks and weeds and north end weeds and sand. Friday night was flat calm and beautifu. Big wind blew up on Saturday night and made things difficult. Was hoping the full moon would trigger some activity, but it didn't happen for us anyway. Shouldn't be long and the fish should start showing up at their summer homes, but many of us are thinking right now that the muskies are really in transition and out in the open water. Would have liked to get out there and do some trolling, but the wind wouldn't allow it.

On the bright side, we had a five fish day between Alex and Sham yesterday (Sunday). All fish ranging from 39 to 47", and were caught shallow on a variety of smaller bucktails and spinnerbaits. Black/orange, brown/yellow, chartreuse/white...color didn't seem to matter. Crazy how the muskies can be off on one lake and on at the other, and how we so often go from "rags to riches", but I guess that's musky fishing!

Headed to Vermilion for four days later this week. Will post on that when I get back.

Good luck Musky fishing!

Was up to a buddy's cabin by Mille Lacs this weekend muskie fishing. Fished Cedar Lake south of Aitken thurs. nite, fri, morning, sat. nite, with no success. Couple of hits but believe they were small snakes. Has anyone fished this lake before for muskies. I fished it last year and had couple of nice follows but no strikes. Also, any other lakes worth targeting in Brainerd area that hold muskies?

Mallard,

I used to live one mile from Cedar, and fished it several times a week for several years. There's some nice fish in there (dnr netted a few this spring over 50 inches). Tons of structure, but not great numbers of fish. My opinion is they tend to move around alot. They won't necessarily be in one spot from one year to the next, or from one week to the next for that matter. My biggest out of there is 47 inches. I've had some multiple fish days, but probably more where I didn't catch any at all. When I lived over there, fishing seemed to get worse and worse every year. Lots of pressure there, that's for sure. Landing is full on weeknights, especially if it's windy over on Mille Lacs.

Any questions in particular about Cedar?

Hey Tim! How was Vermilion? Anything to report? Jody and I are heading back up there on the 21st for a week. As usual fishing the west end. Shoot me an email if you'd like.
