      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 .

Next week on Mille Lacs - any advice for a newcomer?

Recommended Posts

SureShot

I finally convinced my wife to rent a cabin on Mille Lacs for our anniversary with assurances we'd catch fish on this lake. Now I need your advice! We have a cabin rented near Garrison Sat Aug 26th to Sept 2nd and I'm looking to be on the water every day weather permits my little 17 footer with 40 horse to float. Any advice on location, lures, time etc near Garrison would be appreciated.

Haven't been up for a few weeks myself, but you can usually get good advice at Lundeens Bait or visit their website Thursdays for up-dates at www.lundeens.com. Your best bet this time of the year might be slip bobbers with light jigs & leeches on the shallow rocks at night, or try some Muskie fishing along the North Shore weeds.

I have not slip bobber fished on Mille Lacs. How do you set up your tackle? Use a jighead or a floating jig below a sinker? What type or color of jigs are effective?

No problem.....

Anybody that sells em can show you whether it's Lundeens, Meleens, Tutt's in Garrison or Cabelas. You have a slip knot on top, a bead Those stop the bobber at a specific depth, the bobber a weight and the hook or jig. Just like using one to panfish, you want to get the proper size to do the job and not create too much resistance. Some have a light built in or others you can add a light stick. Have a great week!

You can never go wrong with orange or chart. jig head. Some times a plain red #6 Gami works better than anything. Find some shallow rocks 6' or so, anchor away from rocks & wait. If you dont catch anything for 20 min or so move! I usually wont spend more than a 1/2 hour on any spot with out a walleye bite. It seemed that in the last week you'd catch perch, bass and an ocassional eye. If you aren't catching trash fish within 10 min move. Hope this helps
