      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 .

Great week in Villard

Recommended Posts

We just spent our annual week at Canary Beach at Villard, and I don't know how it could have been much better. Weather was great all week, and the fishing was wonderful. Usually fished northern and bass early and late day, and sunfish during the day. Fished Leven mostly as the panfishing seemed to be better over there. We caught many sunnies in the 8" range, which is a pretty nice fight on a light rod. Man, if I could clear it with the wife, we'd move to that area in a heartbeat.

Great to hear! I will be staying at Canary Beach in 2 weeks over Labor Day weekend. We stayed there for about 10 straight summers in the 80's/90's, but I haven't been there in about 12 years.

I think you will be pleasantly surprised. The Krafts, who bought the place 2 or 3 years ago have done a lot of improving on the cabins, office and area in general. I always liked the previous owners, but Harold and Rosemary have done some nice things and are very friendly also. If you leave your boat in the water overnite, look out for the muskrats! My brother left his old fiberglass runabout on the beach a couple nights, and the darn things crawled in and chewed thru his gas line and tore up some of his upholstery. He even got out on the middle of the lake one morning, and one came crawling out of hiding somewhere. He was on a muskrat mission the rest of the week. He got three of them, but on the last nite, one got in again and gave him a going-away present. Anyway, hope you enjoy your trip, and am looking forward to seeing a report.

Does anybody have any recent reports for Villard or Leven? I'll be heading up there Friday. Thanks!

I don't have any recent fishing reports for ya, but I stopped out at the cabin on Villard last weekend and the lake is really low right now. I'd say its down at least a couple of feet. We usually do pretty good with panfish this time of year though. Good Luck.

Thanks. I haven't fished there in almost 20 years and never in the fall. It should be interesting...

Well, we spent a very wet weekend up there with decent results. The water levels on Villard and Leven were down quite a bit.

We fished Villard for about 7 hours Friday (a few hours in the rain) with poor results--small sunfish, a couple of small bass, and a couple northerns.

We spent all day Saturday and Sunday on Leven and got dumped on most of the time. The fishing was much better though. We caught a lot of nice sunfish and several crappies (mostly small), and several small northerns. I also managed a bonus 15+" walleye while crappie fishing.
