      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 .

Sorry DK,<BR>Haven't been on Leech for a week and a half. I have been on Winnie, Mille Lacs and the Twin Cities. I will be on Leech this weekend with clients. I can tell you the the bite is tough on Leech according to my friends in the guide coalition. This is due in part to the massive may fly hatch. <BR>It should be very near the end. Last Sat. evening I walked down to the bait house and the wall was covered, the minnow bucket tank had them 6" deep by morning.<BR>Usually we start to concentrate on muskie /pike or bass at this time to help keep our clients a little more interested.<BR>Terry<BR>Terry's Guide Service

dk-<BR>I fished Leech last friday for a few hours (as I drove past the lake I just had to launch my boat). The bite was on! I had four fish on that I had to the boat that were over 25" and the line(s) broke, and I kept one 20" for the fryin pan. <P>I was fishing in some rough conditions, with a nice south wind and large waves. I have found that when there is wind and waves on this lake, the fish will turn on. Also not many boats on the main lake on rough days. <P>I fished Submarine Island area and Portage Bay on some flats, near drop-offs. I used long snells with gold spinners/leeches while drifting with and without a drift sock. I had 4 and 6-pound test mono on my spinner rigs and I should have used 8 pound test. I lost a lot of fish and spinner rigs in those few hours.<BR>Good luck.

Went out Friday night for walleyes around Bear Island and Submarine Island. Not even a bite. Tried for muskies Saturday morning in Portage Bay. Had one follow but no takers. Saturday afternoon went to Birch Lake and caught some sunfish. Just kept enough to eat. Leech must be slow because it didn't seem like there were many boats out for the weekend. Will have to try again later in the year.<P>DK
