      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 .

Plenty of panfish there, the kids will have fun. My last outing there for skis I saw four fish so they are definitely in there. None of them were particularly big, but you should expect to see some action.

Bone lake used to be the place to go. I haven't been up there in 8 years but the dnr have managed that lake with successful results and the muskies were booming.

The muskies are small in the Apple but abundant. If you wanted to catch one that is where I would go. Hard to go wrong in any of the area lakes for panfish.

I would expect this year to be a down one for Bone due to the high number of fish speared this past winter. I've heard over 200 muskies were taken and lots of 45"+ fish. The DNR does a good job with this lake but they have no control of the spearing harvest.

I've never been to the Apple, but will be up in Milltown this weekend. I'm interested in giving the flowage a try myself. Where's the best place to launch your boat?

Dang, just found out there is a Musky tournament this weekend on that and the other muskie lakes in Polk county. I'll have to compete with others for a parking spot and fishing spots. Maybe I'll stick to walleye this weekend...

Wapogasset has been on my list for a while to try. Bear Trap looks like it might be a fun lake to try. Wish me luck.

Ended up just staying on our lake as most of my guests were just looking to drink and play cards. So, I never hit any of the above lakes. Maybe later this year I'll give one of them a shot.
