      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 .

anyone fishing lida for opener? Just looking for some tips on where to start and with what lures. im guessing a bobber/plain hook shiner setup and if not that a small jig/shiner and last but not least a crank bait. im more just looking for some spots if someone doesnt mind, also maybe some depths to start looking at.

We are staying at the crystal/Lida lake resort and im guessing opening night will be from shore and in the morning with a boat.

I will talk to a buddy of mine and post back -- but when in doubt go to where you think they would be. Sometimes we find them deep -- sometimes very shallow.

Also -- go to where the boats are -- that is a good place to start.

I'll e-mail a buddy and ask him.

Sometimes however a bunch of boats in one place only means one thing. No one else knows were to go either. One guy sets up shop and next follows next thing you know you have 15 boats laying on top of each other and you could share minnows you are so close. I would look for gravel bottoms and water inlets in the spring. try jid and minnwow. If that doesnt work you coudl pull some spinner rigs at 1/2 mph tipped with a shinner or fathead. From looking at the map of Lida there are several humps in the lake not to far from shore. Try rigging up the sides of these humps. I would use some nice heavy bottom bouncers to keep them close to the boat so you can fish with your locator. Good Luck.

This is the e-mail from my buddy that fishes that lake a lot.

Jig and minnow and minnon Lidy rigs are a no-brainer this time of the year and are my break butter and meat.

From the North access, he should go around the point to his left and fish
