      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 .

Five friends and I will be heading up to the Hayward area later this week. It would be great to have a meal of fish while we are there. Any current tips or advice as to lakes or just patterns in general? I have only fished one lake in that area one time and don't know any of the lakes at all. Thanks in advance for any help.

Myself and Vman have been doing good on the Chippewa Flowage, me on the crappies and Vman on the walleyes.

Check back tomorrow (Thursday). I'm heading in to work this morning and several of the guys I work with will have been on LCO, Grindstone, Whitefish, and Big Round. I should have a little info on those lakes then.

Here's what I found out. LCO, Grindstone, and Whitefish have all been producing in deeper water (18 to 22) with fatheads outproducing leeches and crawlers coming in a close second. The guy I talked to guides on his days off and he figures they'll be coming up shallower by the weekend. Water temps are ranging in the mid to upper 50's and those 3 lakes.

Another lake that I heard was doing good was Sand Lake. They've relaxed the restrictions on it (back to 2 fish) and might be worth a try.
