      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 .

Canada Lake trout trip

Recommended Posts

Probably my favorite day ever chasing lakers on the hard water...

Four of us had 27,000 acres of this all to ourselves, the only fishermen on the lake. It was a lake none of us had ever fished and decided the 25 mile snowmobile trip would be worth it. Even though there isn't a depth map made for this lake we still went in and fished her blind, with only a topo map of the area.

It was a beuatiful day, the high was about 5 F but with no wind at all in the morning and we started our trip at about 7. The ride out was awesome as we drove through 4 different lakes and on a few logging trails and portages through the woods. We were lucky enough to pass a pack of 4 wolves trecking through the foot of powder and later saw 2 whitetails and an otter.

We finally got fishing around 830 and the fishing was pretty awesome too. We moved from spot to spot all day and fished a total of 7 different areas and went fishless in only one spot (i missed one). By 4 PM we had iced 12 lakers with a few also lost. We also took about a two hour lunch break to just sit around and think about how lucky we were to be where we were.

We fished all shore structure based off the adjacent land formations because we had no way of knowing depths in the main basin. One wall we fished had such a steep slope that I marked from 60 ft to 115 ft in the same hole. I had one hit at 20 ft below the ice in that same hole and lost it!

I spent most of the day fishing alone beacause I was the only one with an FL-8 and they do not work with 12s or 18s (interference screws up every flasher) so I wasn't allowed within 50 yards of the other guys haha. I really didnt mind it though, I liked picking a point and saying "that looks good". Then drill a few holes and catch, or more often miss, a fish... Its a very satisfying feeling!

Most of the fish were in the 24-25 inch class with a couple around 28-30.
