      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 .

Hey guys, I made my first trip to V last this summer at the end of June. I had some pretty good fishing for Bass but the EYE bite was slow due to the Mayfly hatch. Question: If you had one week to come up and fish the Big V for all around great fishing when would it be (June-July-August-September). I like to fish mostly for bass and walleye. I'm planning for next year and need some intel before I lock in my dates. Thanks again to all of you for your feedback. It's guys like you that make this lake a great place to fish! smile.gif

We pretty much skipped fishing the Big V in July, just too hot. I really like the last week in May 1st week in June thing, I also really like the late August early september time too. I am sure other will chime in with other times, but these are my favs.

The end of May and first week of June bite is always good.

The last week of June and first couple weeks of July were really bad weeks for walleyes this summer, but the bass were really hot.

Generally August thru freeze-up is very good fishing for both species. The later you get into the fall the better the walleyes will bite.

Stay away from any week that I'm up there, because my poor fishing luck may jump out of my boat and into yours. Then again, next year is an entirely new season. grin.gif

Cliff sums it up very well. The only factor to consider is how important bass fishing is to you. The last week of May and first two weeks of June cannot be topped by any other time for bass fishing. It is just phenomenal during that time.

i agree with the fishing times with one too add....last ten days or so in july can be very good on the west end....you get that weed line bite going and it can be pretty good......not bad for bass and big pike either....

being from Indiana, we have come up the last 2 years in July..we did better in earlier July than late July..we would rather come up June 1st or so but when you drive 13 hours weather makes a difference. We will try to do the 1st week of July again and hope for the best..we know the smallies will hit.
