      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 .

Upcoming trip

Recommended Posts

So I've got 4 days off work next week that happen to line up with my dads off days as well, were thinking of taking a trip up north some place, it would be from Sun-Wed.

I'm stuck on where to head to though, of concern is that we will be using a 16' Lund Rebel with a 40 hp, wind and waves don't bother me, but I don't want to get pounded all week either. It would be nice to have a big lake to fish if the weather is decent but also have small lakes near by to hit if it really blows hard. We will most likely be staying in a hotel and trailering to the lake daily, any recommendations for lakes or areas to head too?

Leech!!! Fishing is pretty hot right now. There are plenty of close hotels in the area. The lake has plenty of areas to get out the wind a little bit. For the most part, the fish have been biting the whole lake. Check out the Leech Lake forum and you will see positive reports from the whole lake.

URL would be a good option, especially if the Tamarac River is open to fishing.

Crane-Sandpoint-Little Vermilion-Namakan-Kab chain if you dont mind the extra drive plus there are smaller lakes like Echo that produce pretty good. If you put in on Crane there are lots of good spots close to the landing.

Come stay in Bemidji, you've got a ton of hot lakes to choose from, and if the wind is blowing you've got a ton of smaller hot lakes to choose from. Win-win-win.
