      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 .

Mille Lacs trip...

Recommended Posts

I'm looking at going to Mille Lacs for a few days in early June. Any recommendations on a campground/ park to stay at? I plan on fishing for smallies, so I am guessing south end of the lake somewhere...

Thanks for the help!

I'll trade that! Im heading there this weekend, might be a little early, but they should be pre-spawn and fat!

where I fish UP NORTH I catch all my big fish (large and smallies)from opener-middle of june. So the time is now.

Late may is my favorite, when I can command all the smallies off the boulders to feast on a tastey hook. After july with the exception of Lake Vermilion, the bass fishing gets harder and dealing with the weeds sucks.

Mille Lacs is unlike most lakes in the state for smallies. The hotter and calmer the better.

I'd love to know why that is.... I know a couple other lakes like that, and the common denominator - if there is one - is clear water. But it's odd...

Cheers,

My only guess is the size of it and the water clarity. Takes so long to warm up and never gets to be the temps of a typical lake in MN. And there are very few weeds outside the bays to hold the warmth. Rocks help, but there are only so many of them.
