      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 .

Help!! We need a guide. BUT...here is my question. For those of you who have used a guide, has it been beneficial down the road? What I mean is I don't want to catch fish for the one day, but learn about were they move and different techniques that working during the summer and fall months. Looking a getting one in September for dad/son birthday gift.

Thanks

A good guide will explain everything as you are doing it. At least I do. In order for you to be effective, even in my boat. You need to understand what you are doing and why we are doing it.

After 15 years of fishing for anything (northerns, walleye, tried for muskies), we decided to take a guide on Cass for the 1st time in 1997 for muskies. Before 1997, our groups had caught 1 muskie. 32" or so. Since then, we have 7 fish over 50". We go for one week a year.

So yes, I think it's well worth it.

Give Brian Jones a call. We fished together 2 weeks ago, and I caught 2 legal muskies in 15 minutes.

I would second this notion, I fished the two previous years with Brian Jones and he definitely showed us how and where to catch fish. We were not able to hook up with him this year due to family conflicts and our numbers of keeper fish were decidedly smaller. I would highly recommend using a guide and honestly the only guide I have used on Cass is Brian. He is a great guy and very good with kids. My 8 & 10 yr olds had the greatest time fishing with Brian, they still talk about it all the time. Just wanted to chime in.

Papa,

I have used Brian since he first started his business and he has taken out nearly two dozen of my relatives, from experienced fishermen to beginners and everybody has enjoyed his company, learned from his experience and caught fish as well. You can't get better than that. I think a day out with Brian would make a great present and not too expensive either! I have fished with two other guides on Cass, both who have a bigger reputation than Brian since they have been guiding longer than he has and I would not even consider booking them again. They give you short trips, don't like to share many of their "secrets" with you and never take you to their "honey holes". Give Brian a shot and then come back on the Cass Lake thread and let us know what you think. Windy
