      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 .

My cousin is coming the first weekend in June and wants to go bass fishing. Just curious if the bass are found along the deep weed edges, docks or are up shallow this time of year? I'm not much of a bass fisherman although my username says basscatcher (it's just a cb handle my grandpa gave me years ago for catching smallies on Rainy Lake).

At any rate, any suggestions on what type of structure and depth to hit and what type of lures to use would be greatly appreciated.

A friend of mine had a place, out there if you go like you are driving on to the lake from the access, take a left in to that little hole,channel. There is a big brown house(tall)and a deck, with all fenced(chainlink)in yard the boat in there at that time of year, my G--, you could not even sit on the dock or try to shore fish or they would have hooked you. I dont know why they didn't park and ask to use her dock, has you could walk from the boat to the dock with out missing a beat. Some of the bass were really nice, most everything i seen caught was C&R. Good luck.Lynn

my grandmother had a cabin on that lake i spent almost every summer there till i was 14yo i do try to fish there as often as time permits the one thing i can tell you is be prepared for CLEAR water the lake is clean clean clean

for the most part spring fed

i was out there this past ice season about 4 weeks before ice out and it is remarkable the clairity like looking thru a clean window

i had the camera down and you could see for a long ways out

good luck fishing there and please check your trailer before putting in for any weeds or debries

I hear ya. That is a pristine lake with very clear/clean water. It's one of my more favorite sunfish lakes. I always check my rig for weeds when I pull out of the water, no matter what lake it is. It's also good to take the rig in for a quick wash when getting back to town too because you can't always see all the small weeds on your rig.

Thanks for the info. Wherever we fish for bass, it will be C&R only. I like Sylvia because not only does it have bass, but as I mentioned above, it has some nice sunnies in it too. Can go out and catch bass, then get some sunnies to take home for a meal.

Thanks for the replies!
