      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 .

North Center Sunfish, 5yr olds first time out in boat

Recommended Posts

Big Jeff

I have a chance to take my 5 yr old nephew out fishing in the boat for the first time, I figuer I have an hour at best to keep him interested with some bobber action, but I have not fished North Center in a year or two. I am very familiar with the lake and have fished it in the past but not resentally. Looking for any advice on where the little man can keep busy? I am thinking just worms but if something is working better please let me know. Thanks in advance for the help.

I would try the shallow weeds near deeper water. You might find some crappies too. The lake is full of small crappies along with the sunfish.

Fishing with the youngsters is fun, I hope you guys get into some fish.

I took my girlfriend out for the first time the other day as she has been bugging me to take her forever now. I showed her how to cast and I don't even think the hook got to the bottom and she had a fish. Listening to her ask why her bobber was going under was funny. I didn't even get a chance to fish because I had to take her fish off every 2 seconds. Then the dog jumped in the water and got tangled in the fishing line. I gave up lol. Can't wait till I get a little guy/girl to fish with.

I don't know if you've been out yet, but I've always had luck for panfish around the big island in 4-7 fow. There is also an area northeast of the big island with some emergent weeds (the DNR map shows it as a small island) that I've caught panfish around. A small chunk of a worm will work fast. I took the kids there about 3 weeks ago and small leeches worked really well too. You can also use artificial baits like jig and curly tails or beetle spins and sometimes catch the bigger fish, but if you are fishing with a 5 YO use live bait because they will catch fish so much faster. Good luck and have fun!
