      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 .

I am very happy to report that the family and I are going to be returning for our 4th year in a row to the west side and I was wondering how the fishing has been this year around fire island/goodwill island? I don't know if we will get a guide this year or not? But I will put my last 4 years of guided trips to the test if not and hope for the best. Hope everyone has been having a good year and will probaly see you on the water!

The shallow inshore bite around Goodwill/Fire Island(s) is pretty much past for at least until mid-Sept. Think the fringes and transition on 15-20-foot flats/sunken islands near deeper water. The sunken islands between Center Island and the church camp have produced pretty good for me the past few days, but you have to sort a quite a few larger fish to find the eater-keepers (good problem to have!)

Thanks guys, I agree with you Gary, last year we actually had good to very good luck when it was very warm. Hans what kind of boat do you have? You have givin' me a few helpful tips over the last few years, so if I see you out there I would like to stop by and say hi. I will be in a blue 18' lund fisherman with a Honda 130 hope to see you out there and good luck to everyone!

I run around in a blue-over-tan 17-foot Smoker, with an Evinrude eTec on the back, PinPoint on the bow.

I fish out of White Eagle and you'll find me almost anywhere west of Timbuktu.
