      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 .

Gonna be up this week during the MEA break to take my 10 yr old out fishing. Wondering what the eye's might me bitin', depths, etc.. You don't need to give me your secret spot, just a little direction for bait. I'll find out if your lyin to me because I'll get a report from Bluewater too cool.gif Thanks for the help. I've never fished in the fall and am afraid of the cold winds and my son wanting to quit early.

Well you should do good but beware the duck hunters...

I would start at the north end hump work your way around the from 15'-20' they should be there.

We netted a 19 and 24 pound Muskie last MEA, other than those two not much action but lots of guys were bringing in fish. That was then though. Good luck, have a feeling we'll try it again this weekend. Bundle Up!

Thanks for reminder on the duck hunters. I suppose wind will play a factor in where I go. Any advice on color? Minnow type?

Here's another question, what's with the minnows in a bag at the bait stores. I can't remember the name, but I think they have "grub" in the name. I look at them, but wonder why you wouldn't just use the real deal? Any insight would be appreciated.

15' - 20' is probably the ticket, but don't be afraid to go a little deeper or shallower regardless of the light and time of day. Found a nice school of them out their last fall in the shallows and a few times they were fairly deep. If it's not too windy, you may see a 16' johnboat out there getting pulled around by a fat creek chub.

kwiggy, don't know if you're a hunter, but you could do well walking together in the woods looking for grouse. If he's ten he's two years away from firearms safety, what a great way to get him excited to hunt! Plntagenet has some good grouse land around it; a friend of mine did really well a week ago.
