      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 .

Gogebic Advice

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys! I'm heading up to Gogebic on the 30th to chase some walleyes and hopefully a few smallies. Anybody got any advice for a Gogebic newbie? Also, is there any good trout streams nearby that would make it worthwhile to throw my waders in the truck? Thanks in advance.

Hey honker, Gogebic is a tough nut to crack when it comes to walleye, but I'll try and get you started. I prefer slip bobbers and lindy rigs on Gogebic for the majority of my walleye fishing. I've had the best luck with a Gypsy Jig a foot or so off the bottom, minnow hooked through the head, pink and chartreuse where hot on opener. Find a mid lake hump/crib, throw 2 bobbers out and jig with your 3rd rod (yes, 3 rods in MI). You can cover a lot of water drifting lindy's and you can usually pick up some decent numbers. Last year we were catching dozens of 13-14 in eyes, this year that class is up to 16-17 (15 is legal with a 5 bag limit). As far as trout, again depending where you are staying, I would take a trip back to Bessemer and head to Black River Harbor. It's a very scenic drive and the Black River has some nice trout. Try Rainbow and Gorge Falls on Black River road (about a mile south of the harbor). You can catch cohos and browns off the breakwall and also in the harbor itself. Good luck and let us know how it goes!
