      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 .

Was in Alex this weekend and was going to fish Darling but I'm a bit of a chicken when it comes to ice (some mean black spots and some open water around the edges on Darling) so I went over to Agnes where I saw some folks fishing. With no map & no idea where I was going or what kind of fish Agnes holds I walked out from the public access, drilled a couple of holes and proceeded to catch a bunch of really nice perch. I've never really fished perch intentionally before, so I set my personal record with two fish over 11". I think there's still a few days of walkable ice on the bay I was fishing so you might want to head out there.

Chartruese jigs and a waxie, 10'-11' feet of water -- if you catch a few smaller males, stick it out because the big ones are real close. Line up the Alex water tower w/ the boat landing gazebo and head out about 400 yards. Best of luck and be careful -- a few warm days and ice conditions could go downhill fast. Spike

P.S. Ghotierman -- stopped into Northeast Outfitters on Saturday. You've got a great lookin' place and your guys were very friendly and really helpful even though I only bought a pack of waxies. Next time I'm in the area I'll be sure to stop by and spend a little more.

Spike, glad you had a good time this weekend! Agnes is one of the forgotten jewels of this area, along with her brother water, Henry. Both in-town lakes produce some decent panfish, nice perch, and an occasional northern. The water quality on both has improved measurably the last few years, and more anglers are taking advantage of the ample shoreline opportunities. There is a public pier off the city park on the north end of Agnes that's a nice early softwater panfish zone.

Thanks for the kind words about Northeast Outfitters, Spike. We're here to offer the best gear and information we can. Thanks again.
