      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 .

I just talked to a buddy that went to one of my spots I have not hit this season. He and his boy and they are beginners landed 5 nice flats and missed many many more runs.

Looks like I will be hitting that spot by my lonesome tonight.

Anyone that wants to go alone, I have room for one.

1.5 hours from Roseville seems a little steep. If you would "cruise" down 35w then take 494 west over to 169 south I figure it would not take any more than hour. To get down to the Henderson launch from my house in Princeton I figure would take about an hour and a half. I could be wrong though. Some times though on-line map sites travel times are way off and i would say it would take only 45 minutes even driving right our the speed limit.

Unless you are coming from another location and not Roseville?

I sure would go Tom but our family trip plans to Wis. where canceled this weekend so my wifes family is over for dinner this evening.

Good luck tonight Tom and bag a big one!

Hey bassboy, nice job on the flatty. Did you get any pics? That's sweet. Did you try the outside bend you were contemplating? What kind of bait? Sounds like a good time was had.

    • I don't mind Evan Williams but it's no where near as good as Trader Joe's but then again my beer of choice is Old Mill.    I've got a set of these bullet chillers on the way. Somehow I became a booze snob and didn't want my cheap Bourbon watered down and I'd rather have it chilled.  Less than 20 on the big A.
    • Bacon is cured already silly!
    • like any addiction............there are cures!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • Snow has finally stuck up north. With temperatures in the teens and low 20s it looks like it is here to stay. Several properties in the north are reporting between 6 and 10 inches, while the southern half of the state has seen primarily sporadic dustings up to a couple inches. While many ski trails still need additional snow and time to prepare, the Brule River, Northern Highland-American Legion and Point Beach state forests are grooming trails and making ready for the influx of skiers.At this point only Iron County in far northern Wisconsin is reporting that snowmobile trails are open, on the Wisconsin Department of Tourism's Snow Conditions Report (exit DNR).Ice conditions have not substantially improved. While there may be 10 inches of snow in Mercer, much of the ice on Iron County lakes varies between only1 and 4 inches. Those early ice anglers that are venturing out have reported solid catches for panfish and northern pike biting on Lake Poygan and those fishing Lake Chetac in Sawyer County are landing walleye, northern pike and panfish. There are just a few weeks left to turkey hunt and now is a good time to see turkeys feeding in fields and wooded areas. Pheasant hunters should note that the state game farm will be releasing an additional 1,500 birds on five wildlife areas prior to the holidays for some late season hunting. .
