      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 .

Fished Island today. 10-15 I didn't use cranks, but had fish on all day with jigs and minnows. The fish were in a solid ban at 20 feet off an island drop off. The small northerns were also quite active. The lake has a bite on, but thus far this fall I haven't been able to land on some big fish. No crappies to speak off either.

Today was about as nice a late fall day to be out on the water. It was just warm enough to enjoy the day and I could still get the hands wet. There was hardly anyone out there.

I'm glad I went today because I've got a business trip spanning the next to weekends and after that its down to the cites to watch the Vikes play the Chargers. So today may have been the last open water trip of the 2007 season.

However, the boat stays ready till freeze up.

Troyslund if your worried about people giving honest reports than you better go out and work on your own. Thats a chance you take when you ask for info on the net. You may get great "Honest" info and then you might get aimed in the carp hole.

Only real way to know for sure is to get out and find out for yourself. At least then you can hopefully believe what you found. wink.gif

I'll assure you I wouldn't come here and waste my time to write b.s. and I don't think other members do either.

Shogun its like reading the news paper. Most of it is really good info, some is filler and some is just ink to keep ya reading. wink.gif

Seriously though I think for as long as you have been around you know better than that 90%. If not feel free to pitch in and bring that % down.

I know the guys who post the most on this forum dont BS about fishing areas, times etc. We may not tel every detail but usually will give enough where a guy who wants to put in a little work could get something to tug his line a few times.

Well, there IS a fair amount of BS going on a lot of the time. Most folks know when everyone's playing around or when we're serious, and there's lots of room for both. That combination is why at FM we have more fun while helping each other out with great tips, tactics and spots.
