      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 .

anyone been out there this year. my parents have a cabin on platte and was wondering how the bite has been for all species. I have only fished it a couple of times for some real nice bass but need to learn the lake better.

Platte is usually fairly consistant for pike in the winter.

Both lakes are decent fisheries. They both have lots of Northern's, but I would say Platte is better for quality of fish. A very popular spot for tip-ups and spearing in the winter. They both hold some panfish, but the community spots are hit pretty hard. A good lake to take the kids as you can almost always find some action.

I was out on Platte for four hours today and we did alright. I stayed away from the crowds, though there really only two communities out there. I drilled a lot of holes and moved around a bit, but we were able to put a few fish on the ice. I did bust two lines while fishing for crappies. I was using an ultralight rod both times, and the rod had about all it could handle, as did the drag. Apparently the two pound line had more than it could handle. If you head out there make sure to set up some tip-ups with some large suckers.

I enjoy fishing that area north of Hillman because there are a lot of lakes to choose from, and there is not quite so much pressure. I tend to think that a lot of folks either end up going up to Mille Lacs or the Brainerd area.
