      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 .

Casting For Eyes In Shallow Water

Recommended Posts

Kingpin

I have spent a fair amount of time fall fishing the Horseshoe Chain Of Lakes, which is located just southwest of St. Cloud. This time of year we have had good luck casting towards the shoreline, working shallow water with some structure.

We have the best luck working the areas by casting crankbaits with a slow retrieve. Has anyone tried this tactic on ML? Is it a waste of time trying?

When I have founs a spot of the spot by trolling and the weather isn't too windy I have stopped and worked the area over by fan casting it. I can be very effective under those circumstances.

Like Borch said, cover ground until you pattern a "spot on the spot" if you're working shoreline areas. Then casting definitely has it's place on ML. Another opportunity for shallow water casting is on rock reefs. With multiple people in the boat, 1 person can be corkin' while others are pitching big plastics or crank baits.

Great technique for many bodies of water in the fall including Mille to catch a real trophy. Don't forget the insulated waders. laugh.gif
