      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 .

Coming to the area

Recommended Posts

Am looking at coming up for a 5 day trip in September. I have always fished Lida (Oak Lodge or Viking Hills Resorts), but would like some info on other area lakes and resorts in and around Pelican Rapids area. I prefer walleye and crappie, but just want to enjoy time on the water. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

I've fished Lizzie quite a few times this summer. The walleyes, although in moderate numbers, have been averaging 18-almost 20 inches. Some nice smallmouth, including my personal best, 20 incher. Lots of norhterns, one in every dozen can run over five pounds.

Last year I had decent luck on Big Cormorant in September. Fish were a little deeper and had to use bottom bouncers and spinners. Better numbers of fish but had to pick through them for eaters.

Good luck.

Lizzie is the next lake north of Lida and Big C is only about 15 miles from there. I don't know if either lake have resorts that aren't seasonal. There is a campground on the southwest end of Pelican Lake that would be a little more centrally located.
