      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 .

Tonka

Recommended Posts

I am fairly new to the Musky craziness and am totally hooked. I have fished several Twin City lakes and of course Mille Lacs but am interested in giving Tonka a go this year. I am wondering what are some of the better bays to fish Musky on Tonka?

Go during the week if you can. Otherwise if you can only get out on the weekend, very early morning or early evening. Recreational traffic gets pretty heavy during the summer and avoiding it is your best bet. As for bait...a lot of these fish see lures all day long. I've had the best success throwing the stuff that isn't as commonly used and varying presentation until you find what they like. Good luck!

all bays on tonka hold muskies, so you can't go wrong. west side will warm up and cool down before the eastside, and milfoil is milfoil wherever it grows.

i'd start by isolating a bay or section on your map, pick out the points/turns/humps and best looks spots, and go fishing - you'll find them. don't forget the inside edge too.
