      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 .

I was wondering if anybody has been driving mid size pickups out this way, and also is the best access to get to the east side of the island out of carsons bay?

Thanks,

Save your time there on that spot!! It's a dead sea right now unless you want to catch hundreds of suspended potato chip sunnies.

Old report from big island (few weeks ago)

As mentioned, lots of small panfish. I tried in the weeds and out deeper, never came up with a good one but it was lots of action. I managed to get a big LM bass to hit my jig (watched on the camera), fought it for a while but unhooked at the hole. Also saw numerous northerns, and a muskie. Managed one small walleye at sunset out at the break sitting right next to the weedline, which at that time was about 16 FOW.

Stay away from the channels and permanent docks.
