      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 grew up on this lake it is definatly not what it was. way too much fishing pressure i counted 53 boats one day between the 2 lakes this summer. full of 2-4# pike, crappies not bad, nice bass this time of year. walleyes are tough to find but they are there.

I have been on West Fox for the last 15 years, and like has already been mentioned, it definitely isn't what it used to be. Way too many people fishing, and way too many people keeping everything they catch. Haven't caught a northern over 3 pounds in almost 10 years. Tons of 12-14" bass, tons of tiny sunfish. Never had much luck with crappies...occasionally I will catch one by accident. Walleyes are definitely easier to catch through the ice than during open water (for me anyways), but there still doesn't seem to be a lot of them. Maybe others have noticed this, but over the last 7-8 years, the cabbage beds in West Fox have drastically disappeared. Where there used to be nice, big, thick cabbage beds, there are now just beds of junk...the poorer fishing seems to have coincided with the loss of these cabbage beds.

As far as presentations go, I have have pretty good action just fishing the outside weed edges, starting around 15 feet and sometimes going as deep as 25 feet, with a lead head jig and a 7" power worm...just hop it along and the fish will find it.

TProGuy pretty much spelled it out. Small bass and pike, decent pannies (compared to metro sunnies) at times. Walleyes seem to be really tough to figure out. There's fish around, just don't expect a whole lot.

Crow Wing County and Milwaukee are miles apart....

If you're old enough to remember that TV commercial, it was filmed on Fox.
