      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 .

Questions from spring fishing newbie

I usually don't fish until toward the end of May, but this year I've got the itch a bit early. What depths and structures can I expect to find panfish in at this time of year? I fish the late mesotrophic in the north twin cities metro.

Thanks.

I went out last night for about 3.5 hours, and caught some fish. I was anochored in about 9 to 11 feet of water. I was on top of a weed bed. The boat was positioned in the mouth of a small cove...the wind swept side of the lake. We caught 10, lost a couple, and could hardly keep bait on the hooks. 5 or 6 Sunny's, 2 nice size crappie, a perch and a nice size bass took my minnow - of course, I relesed him right away because of the season. Fun times!

I have been fishing about two to three times a week since ice out, and noticing the fish are coming in shollower water. Probably because of the water temp rising.

Hope this helps.

You bet it helps! Thanks! I haven't been out yet except for bank fishing because I had to finish some painting and refitting of my boat. Now it's ready and I'm dying to get out there.
