      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 River Bend Yesterday!!!

Recommended Posts

Sprinter

3 Of us fished out of River Bend Resort yesterday so here is a quick report.

Started off a little slow for the first couple hours so we changed depth around 11 and it got a lot better. It was not fast and furious but there were enough fish to keep u interested. Not many small fish at all(probably 5-6 scuds all day), The rest of the fish were in the 15-19 inch range so they were very nice fish. Moved shallow for a night run in search of the ever elusive "pig" but to no avail. We did get the rest of our limit though. 3 guys; 12 eyes, 6 saugs, 1 jumbo, biggest on day was 19 smallest about 15, and one of the saugs was 18".

River Bend did a great job of doing everything possible to put us on the fish, they are great people, so a big "thank you" to them!!! wink.gifwink.gifwink.gif

Sprinter: Thanks for posting your results. Sounds like a good day. Were you over Pine? IN your houses or Riverbends? Headed that way in a couple of weeks. Bill

Bill, Yeah we were over pine in River Bends houses. 23 fow was the best for us but I'm sure that will change quickly after the weekend traffic. There is already a ton of houses out there. What was nice about River Bend is there houses are spread out over a large area so we had some depth options. They were nice enough to get us into 3 different houses so we got to do a little scouting. Ice conditions were really good too. The thinnest was about 8-9 inches of good rock hard clear/blue ice.

      As far as I know, never been there.  I know it's great for splake, browns and lakers.

      A return client for a couple years brought fish grips with him... After watching him mangle a couple fish I asked him not to bring them anymore. Big fish need more care when landing in my experience. I hand land most muskies. This helps with not bringing a green (not ready) fish into the boat to hurt itself and the boat. With musky fishing growing in popularity I'm noticing a lot more fish with net scars from green fish. For a young musky angler learn correct technique early. The scars after a 4 fish day are a badge of honor. One of the best gifts I've received for my musky gear is a good pair of wire cutters. I use them to cut hooks in an emergency or out of a poorly hooked fish. Or if you can find it...a jar of musky slime cologne, my wife loves it. Ha! Good luck

      Drove out the wheeler on the thickest ice.  Fishing for the first time. Had a solid 7" here.  But 50 yards away only 3".   Don

      I fished shakopee lake in onamia on monday it had ten inches of good ice. Lots of air bubbles but seemed solid. I would guess most lakes in the area have enough to at least walk on but u can never trust ice so be carfull bring spud bar and ice picks and a friend just in case
