      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 .

Has anyone been fishing island, always did really well in the past. Evening bite, like taking candy from a baby.

Musky,

A couple of questions for you...

Are you fishing shore related areas or midlake stuff yet? Have you only used leeches or have you tried minnows the past few days? Just curious, we were using both last weekend (on Potato), but it still seemed that the bite was better with Chubs.

What is Northerns store hours? Are they back to 7 to 7 (I think thats normal, correct?)

My son and should be in tomorrow to pickup crappie minnows and CChubs.

Lippy,

Sounds like you had some significant action! We did well on Eagle, Sunday. Key depths were 14-18 feet as well. Rigging with leeches.

How late were you cranking on Potato? I am going up Sunday afternoon for a whole week of fishing (totally jacked up about that). I was thinking of cranking and spinner rigging with crawlers on Potato. I have never done that on that lake, but have on others with nice results this time of year. Were you on shore related stuff or mid lake humps. I would think they may have started to transition there by now?

We went out around 9:00 PM stayed out until 2:00 AM . We were pulling shallow running shad raps white and yellow was the hot lure. To answer your question we stuck to shore line structure.

PS I live on Eagle lake and iI dont fish it some day ill have to give it a try
