      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 .

What color? BIG!

You're thinking like a fly fisherman (I know, I do it, too). The thing that will make the most difference is the amount of water you can push and the commotion you can make. My last hit from a muskie came from a white/brown popper. I don't think it made one bit of difference what color it was. If you want to "match the hatch", find out what the forage is in the lake (Cisco, Perch) and go with those colors. I think you'll ultimately find, however, that it is the presentation that will make the most difference.

For streamers, strip fast, lots of action, don't ever let the fly stop, if they follow it all the way in, keep it moving all around the front of the boat and to both sides (since fly rods aren't the best for figure 8s).

Good luck!

Are you at Cass now?

I have lots of bunny flies, dahlburg divers, clousers, big salt water poppers and decivers. I'll be at Cass the first full week in August. Staying at Sunset Cove behind Stanmans place. I'll be in a blue 17' G3 that will look like its a ham radio operators boat. Anyone out flyfishing (or any kind of fishing ) stop by and say HI

I will be in either Cass or Bemidji that week as well. I really wasn't planning on bringing the fly gear this time...but now maybe I will smile.gif

Not sure where we'll be staying yet. There's so many great lakes in that area I don't know how much we'll actually be on Cass. We're in a little 14' backtroller, so we'll often be in the bay, or on Big Lake, Little Wolf or Plant. Will probably make a trip down to Mantrap at some point as well.
