      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 .

Hey all...first off, nice site you have here. Got referred here from IowaOutdoors.org by a guy who recommended it...very similar sites in many ways. Anyway, I am headed up to West Leaf in a week and was wondering if anyone has been doing any good on there this summer. I know the lake very well and always do very well, but just always like a little heads up on how it has been before I get there. Thanks!

My parents live on West Leaf, so I guess I can give you a hand.

The water temperature has been going down, it was in the high 70's and even up to 81 degrees a few weeks ago. Since it's gone down to 72-73 the fishing has gotten better.

Bass have been going crazy on the lake. I've been going out and catching 20 or 30 everytime out. I've been fishing specific reed beds and all the points and major drop-offs.

Crappies have been really tough. Although, they have seemed to pick up a little with the water temp. falling. I caught a few this past weekend, and they were very large, but not good numbers. I fished them for about 3 hours and caught 5 between a 1 1/4 to almost 2 lbs.. I did happen to catch some very large Bluegills too. They've seemed to get larger on average than past years.

Walleyes are slow, as usual. The water needs to cool down before I really start fish for them.

Northren are going nuts too, but finding good sized ones is the problem.

Are you staying at Oak Lawn???
