      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 .

Did anyone catch a Musky this weekend in the Metro? I don't even care to know what lake you caught the fish on, just want to know if they were biting. I am guessing from the lack of reports the weekend was somewhat un-eventful. I threw a few cast with no luck, but I spent most of my time on panfish with the old man.

They have not seemed to turn on quite yet. I have fished the St Croix a bunch the week before MN opener around Afton and seen 6 fish, but all follows. Hit Tonka hard 2 days ago, had 5 follows, one fish over 50", but once again nothing would take the bait. Same story on Bald Eagle. I am a little upset so far this year, but hopefully persistance will pay off and these fish will really turn on once the water gets into the 70's. It is supposed to be in the 80's all next week, so that has got to help. I think they all spawned late this year as well. A lot of fish I saw were really beat up and 80% of the fish I have seen have been in 4' of water or less. I fish by myself most of the time being I get laid off for the summer because of my job. If there are any die hard muskie guys like myself that want to fish with me during the week, let me know. I try to avoid the weekends unless there is a storm coming, or something that will turn the fish on.

Water Hazard

I was out fishing on a north metro lake with my little brother and his girlfriend on Saturday afternoon. I caught my first muskie ever! It was in about 8' of water. I was fishing with a silver jighead tipped with a small redtail. The muskie wasn't a monster, but it was a lot of fun to catch!

The camera phone was tough to align in the sun...

From what I have seen on some different metro lakes and from talking to other people I think they just havent turned on yet, lots of lazy follows, and fish sightings in the shallows but very few boated. I just hope I am on the water when they do turn on......
