      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 was out there labor day. The water temp was 68 on the windy side. We drifted through 9-12 ft out water on the edge of weeds and picked up 10 crappies, and one little walleye. nothing exciting, but the girl from cali whom never had been fishing before got to catch some fish.

It should turn over here pretty soon, and it should turn on. Be careful, I've never seen the water this low before.

Went out of Tim's Highbanks on the 22nd. He told us it had been slow for both Walleyes and Crappeyes. It was.

Fishing for Panfish, caught Bass and Northern...and Perch. blush.gif

Fishing for Northern, caught Bass and a Walleye...and Perch. blush.gif

Fishing for Crappies in the evening, caught a few 6 inchers and one 10 incher...and a Northern...and a Perch. blush.gif

So at least the Northern and Bass were hungry...and Perch. blush.gif

Didn't see anyone really getting into much.

Lots and lots of Rocks sticking up and out, and lots of ups and downs in depth.

Lots of lower units lost the past couple weeks, per Tim.

A hard lake to navigate and fish for firstimers...treacherous at night!!

With all the shallow areas and Hazards, will be thinking hard about whether to return...

Colors changing a little, seem to be lagging a bit.

Fish lake will have roads to within walking distance of several good fishing areas. The west side of the lake usually doesnt have rodas but some years with good early ice guys will drive over that way. Stay away from the D A M and the bridge!

      I resisted converting to braided lines. I liked my TrileneXL. Then, one day about four years ago I decided to spool up with fireline and at first I didn't think I could really feel much difference. Skeptical me, I always held on to that spool loaded with my trusty Trilene. One day I decided to put that mono back on and immediately could feel the difference. It felt like I was fishing with a rubber band. I went back to braided and haven't looked back.

      Last night a flock of geese buzzed the house and Finn went nuts! I think he wants to get out hunting as much as I do.

      Nice video Curt.  Looks like you are having way too much fun out there. Enjoy the time on the water.

      I will probably go out to my parents farm and set up in a pasture. The cattle have it mowed down pretty good. The geese seem tp pile in there pretty good. I won't hit it to hard, just get out a few times and hopefully get my son to get his first goose...

      I have really gone to line Gamma brand line. It is a copolymer. Soft like mono but abrasive resistant as well. I prefer it in #6 for game fish and #4 for panfish.... If I can't find it I fall back to trilene in XL.......
