      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 .

1st timer on west battle

Recommended Posts

My family will be staying on West Battle July 12-19th at Sand Bay. We like to catch fish. In other words, I like to catch bass, panfish and if a walleye gets on my line great. I would like my boys to get into north country fishing like I am. Any tips on where to try or who to contact?

The lake looks like there is lots of structure but almost too much. I will try the doughnuts but what about the lake? Shallow or deep? Walleye, northern or bass? Perch or crappie? Best bet for kids would be? Please help.

Do you have a boat mojo? Are you using the resort's boats or bringing your own?

The key to finding the bass and sunfish right now, you need electronics. These fish are deep in the weeds.

I found walleyes in 23-28 feet of water on the structure. There is a lot of structure out there, just keep moving around until you find active fish.

I'd be happy to show you around the lake when you're up. I'll be out there fishing now that most of my projects are getting completed!

I stayed at Sand Bay once - see if you can get Wade to give up the location of his favorite hump out in the lake!

Other than that, there's a big hole just off the end of the resort docks - and there are a few other spots too with good humps and such. The bait shop should help. If you're looking for sunnies, etc, I would imagine the area around the shallow bay on the far end of the lake from Sand Bay would be good - I've seen Wade the owner post a few reports on crappie fishing in that area too.

Thanks guys
We will be using the resort boat. What about northerns or bass? And how user friendly is this lake? I would like to meet up with anyone that would like to show me around. We are on a limited budget but want to get into some fish. The map looks like we should be able to stay on our side of the lake and have plenty of structure to fish. Is this correct?
Thanks again
Mojo
