      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 .

Rumors of dead muskies

Recommended Posts

Scoot

Last night I heard a report of six dead muskies speared out of Deadshot Bay on Big Detroit Lake. I got this information second hand and can not confirm it. However, it came from a source who I believe had accurate information.

Not trying to start a "spearing is bad" post here. Just trying to pass along the information and ask that people keep an eye out for illegal activity. If you see something "fishy", report it.

While I am not a muskie fan, it is really stupid to do something like that. It is like those dummies that spear walleyes and call them white-finned northerns ... They think they are sooooo funny.

I dont spear, and i really dont care if people do it as long as they mark where they have been. But deffinatly on the conservation side of things, that really stinks, there is no reason that people have to throw fish like that back if they are too small.

Man, if this is true, it really stinks! I am not against spearing either....as a matter of fact I tried it for the first time last winter and thought it was a blast.

Scoot, please post if you find out if this is true or not.

Take care

Cliffy

Thanks for checking it out, Peter. Also, thanks for the e-mails Dead. I appreciate the concern.

Cliffy- I very much doubt I'll get any more info on the topic. If I do, I'll post. However, I don't expect to hear any more.

      use caution on the lakes in southern mn  there is a lot of lakes that have one or 2 spots of open water.  with that said where ive fished there has been a solid 5-6 inches as of yesterday  clear, cedar.cannon,elysian, circle.  i would use a spud bar to check if your going where people havent gone yet.

      Please stay off blue it is not good ice! Baxter is the only lake I walked but there is a bad spot out and to the left of the access. Where don’t find it. Stay east on Baxter the west is bad
    • monstermoose78
      Call search and rescue cause someone will go in on blue! It’s bad news out there. Baxter is the only lake around you would catch me on and just stay to away from the west side of the lake.
