      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 son and I plan on hitting Minnetonka, and Waconia sometime next week looking for the elusive Musky, or big Northerns. Can anyone tell us some good specific areas to find them, types/colors of lures, depths, and especially times of day to fish for them. We don't have alot of time to spend looking all around, so some specific info would be greatly appreciated!!!!!

Thanks in advance!!!!

I fished Waconia on Monday for muskies. First time out there and found the milfoil to be a pain. Found it very tough to fish. 4 hours of fishing and never had a hit or follow. I would hit tonka.

Throw topwaters during low light. Otherwise, I favor big spinnerbaits this time of year. Bucktails will still produce. Black/orange or red, brown/gold and white/silver are the colors I typically use. You can cast or troll the spinnerbaits. It is also nearing time to troll big cranks. As to spots any weed edge will work especially points. You can't go wrong just fishing areas with buoys around them. Also look for mid lake humps/reefs. Get a Lakemaster map to locate them. It has been slow for muskies. Tons of available forage so you need to fish fast for the reaction bite. Troll sppeds are anywhere from 3 to 5mph. Depth to key on is 10ft or less. Milfoil growth is way down this year for some reason so the deep weed edge is a lot shallower. You don't need to worry so much about what part of Tonka to fish. Muskies are pretty much all over.
