      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 .

About three weeks ago, might be due to the hot weather and thermocline driving the fish out of the deep and causing them to go on a bite, hope its not too late! Paul

Paul - Little Mac is spring fed, as are a lot of the lakes in the perham area. Does a thermocline form on these clear, deep lakes? Does the thermocline move 'up' as the hot weather sets in?
Just trying to get a feel for a topic that I know very little about...
I see plenty of fish at 35 to 40' on the clear, deep lakes...wouldn't that be below the thermocline?
thanks

You bet they get thermoclines! However it does take the right conditions for them to form. Hot days with no or very little wind will cause them. The lakes that get the thermoclines are those deep lakes like rose, long, pickerel, little mac, you get the picture. deep clear lakes with no outlet or inlet to speak of. I dont know if a thermocline will move up but it will tilt with a steady wind out of one direction. What kind of locator do you use? Paul

Hi minneman,
I dont know how your locator is set up as far as the settings go but my x 85 will show them in auto with the sensitivity maxed out as much as possible. some years a lake will set up some years they wont. about the only lake that I've seen one this season so far is bad medicine. That one was down in about 55 feet of water. If your locator is set properly it will show them, dad runs an x70a and that will show them if they exist. Paul
