      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 .

Might do some fishing there on sunday. I'm not a muskie fisherman at all, but wouldn't mind catching one while targeting pike (which is what I'll be after). Never fished the lake before...what colors/techniques have been working so far this fall?

Hi JB, we caught 2 and saw 10 the other day working deep weedlines with green weeds, all nice fish. You'll want to look for weedlines that border shallow weedflats, easily identified on your map. Most of the fish seem to be on the outside turns and points of these edges but not always. No need to get your bait too deep, I like my bulldawg but other jerkbaits will work too. Also got a nice pike on the bulldawg, not the best lake for northerns though.

If you don't have any action deep, slide up on the flats and throw a surface bait SHALLOW, but most good shallow weeds are gone now. Treat em nice and throw em back - good luck!

I was on Sugar this morning. I was taking the boat for a final spin but stopped to throw for some 'skis. I had a BIG fish miss the bucktail--it was actually on a fouled cast in about 7-8 feet of water. As the bait got within about 10 feet of the boat the fish took a swipe. I even resisted the urge to set the hook because I didn't feel the weight of the fish yet. No luck. I had one other follow. That was it, but I only fished for about 30 minutes. I guess I'll have to wait until next year to get one--the boat's put away for the winter.
