      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 .

Ok, I'm married now. Its great to be married, but I've basically missed a whole summer of fishing. And to top it all off, my phone finally croaked and I lost all your phone numbers. Anybody have any fall fishing plans yet?

Ben,

Cangrats Ben on getting married...what, you got a Honey-Do list a mile long now? Since my motor fried, my fishing has been very limited. Hopefully I'll have things running in a week. Would like to get out with you again on the river for some smallies, or float tube on lake X. Give me a call, 763-404-0891, we'll plan something. I'll probably be gone most of the weekend though. Have a safe holiday!

Ha thats funny...the "Honey Do" list is currenly long enough that I probably won't be doing any fishing this weekend anway. I was telling Cyberfish that I'm getting all pumped up for ice fishing, although perhaps its abit early yet. We'll have to get out and do some fall fishing; I'll give you a call.

Yeah I think so. I live in Roseville now, but I commute to work in Maple Grove. So after work this winter that puts me within striking distance of any lakes in Plymouth or even Sarah or Independence. There are many lakes between Maple Grove and Roseville off 694, and I would also like to check out White Bear Lake and Bald Eagle. I'm also not all too far from Chisago Lakes area, so I definitely have some exploring to do...

Yesterday I took a friend to the Crow River out by Rogers. It was uncharted territory and all we caught was a redhorse and one small bass. Water was rising and it looked sort of like coffee creamer, so that probably affected the fishing. First time out since the last week of July.

Carp,

I know this is short notice, but if you want to get out for a couple hours tonight, let me know. My boat situation is different (better) now.

Sorry Casey, I got your message abit late. You know I get off work in the northwestern suburbs, so If you want to hit the Mississippi or 'Tonka some night after work, I'd probably be game for it. Anything going on next week?

I am mostly musky hunting Mon thru Wed and occasional Friday night. Saturdays in the fall I plan to chase smallies and eyes on the river. BUt if you guys get into a hot non-tubing lake let me know. I'll drag the boat over and take you out.

Wow, I should've made it out! I ended up taking my brother out and doing some wade fishing on the Crow River near Rogers. Other than a cigar sized smallie, we caught diddly squat. It was sure nice to be out though. The funnest part of the outing was watching my bro try to wade across the river...knee deep, belly button, chin...I thought he was going to break out in a crawl stroke before he turned back.

      Went up north grouse hunting it was fun. I must say having a dog makes it better.  This weekend is duck opener and I am jacked up for it.

      The public launch at The Landing on the west end stays open until the ice sets in, but they do pull the dock sometimes around the end of October / beginning of November.

      Just curious if people are finding fish moving into fall patterns yet or still finding them in more summer locations?  I've been finding good sized panfish in deeper water myself around more mid lake structure. Most of the lakes I've been on are still pretty green with algae and weeds.

      Captain Acorn, I use Gamagatu  octopus hooks. Size 4 for crawlers and size 2 for minnows. Red, black, chartreuse, and pink , mostly red and black. I use orange and green glow soft beads at times. (Worked today!) Cliff
