      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 .

Advice for LOW newcomer

Recommended Posts

GregS

A group of us will be fishing LOW for the first time late June/early July. We will be fishing out of the Angle Inlet area. What are the water temp. and visibility like at that time of year? What techniques will be working at that time of year for walleye, crappie, smallmouth, northern, muskie? This will also be my first time fishing for muskie and northern. What # test line should I use? what about steel leaders? Any advice will be appreciated.<BR>Thanks.<BR>Greg <P>

GregS,<BR>You sure have a lot of fishin' to get done. Most trips I've been on, we have only targeted one species. You may want to consider a shorter list. Less stuff to bring too.<BR>You'll have a good time, guaranteed!

Walleyes this time of year at the Angle will be starting to pick up good out on the reefs. You can still find some in the sand bays, and rubble shorlines as well.<P>Northerns, and Muskie, you will want to primarily check out sand bays. West and South facing sand bays will be better as the sun gets to them the most, and will have the best cabbage growth. You want a steel leader for sure fishing these. I'd recommend 80-100lb line if you are using the super lines. Check out rock points that extend into the lake, Saddle weedbeds as well. It wouldn't hurt to check out a few of the reefs either, but these tend to heat up a little later.<P>Smallies will be starting to move deeper, but a few can still be picked of on rubble shorelines, points, and reefs. Muskies and Smallies tend to share the same turf.<P>I'm afraid crappies would be like looking for a needle in a haystack this time of year though, you might want to forget that one.<P>Have fun!<P>Oh, water clarity will be good this time of year, although it is tanic and fairly dark water. There won't be any algae bloom at this time. Water temps I would guess would vary somewhere around the 70 degree range.<P><p>[This message has been edited by widetrack (edited 03-09-2004).]
