      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 .

Aitkin/BSL Panfish?

Recommended Posts

1forwalleye

I have never fished Aitkin Lake before and was wondering how the lake is for panfish? Any suggestions as to where to start? I have three young nieces visiting in a week who want to catch some sunfish. From the DNR report there doesn not appear to much in Big Sandy Lake. Thanks for any help or advice.

Aitkin does have some nice panfish in it, but they can be hard to find especially this early in the year. Once the weedline grows you can find them on the edge of the break in around 10fow.

I went up there 3 weeks ago and only located a couple little perch, hopefully you'll have better luck.

I'd recommend fishing with panfish leeches, they work the best for us. Worst case - grab a 1/2 dozen small suckers and throw them out with a bobber, the lake has a few nice size northerns.

Good luck.

You'd be better off fishing the culvert in Bill Horn

or over by the dam.

I know guys getting gills there now.

I'm letting the cat outta the bag you know.

I got beat up last winter with the crappie info.

Here I go again,

Good luck.

I hope you get those youngsters into some fish.
