      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 .

Thinking of putting the riggers on next weekend and taking a day off Vermilion and trolling for some lakers on Bside..never been on it before but heard it's a beautiful lake.

I went out this morning. Tried a little of everything. No luck. Unless you count two rock bass! Went for eyes early, fished humps in 20-40 FOW with crawlers and leeches on a harness and with jigs. I tried longlining for lakers right before I left at noon. It was a great morning except for the fishing.

The thermocline was showing up strong around 40 ft according to my cheap fish finder, marked a lot of fish suspended at 20-30 ft when in 40-60 FOW. I'm guessing these were mostly baitfish, with the occasional gamefish mixed in. Any Burntside "experts" want to weigh in? Anyone else have luck? If so, what did you do? BTW I fished the islands in the general area of the entrance to north arm.

After looking back at some of last years posts I thought I had it wrong. But there was a while where my finder showed a flat line about 5 ft thick at 40 ft when the water was deeper than that. Not sure what that was.

A lot of strange lines appear on locators when fishing Burntside, it may be phidoplankton or zooplankton (don't know if I have the spelling correct) confused.gif A camera shows much material floating around at different depths, last year it was just below the therocline and was quite a few feet thick. Looks like the same stuff this year.
