      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 .

Lake Vermillion fishing trip

Recommended Posts

I'm going on a vacation to lake Vermilion for a week. I will be staying off of Moccasin point. I have never fished this lake before and looking for some advice as to what the best bait and maybe some locations I could find some Walleye musky and pan fish. I would be great full for any advice you all want to give me. Thanks

Just my opinion from fishing there last year, but try fishing eyes early and late. During the day chase bass and panfish.

Right on. Eyes stay deep mid day and are up in 8-12 FOW early AM and right before dark (9:20-9:45 is prime time).

Try to find some weeds for the panfish. They seem to like the really thick weeds with all of the water wolves in Vermilion. Rocky/rubble shorelines for SMB or muddy bays for LMB.

The water is really cold up there right now (59 surface temp yesterday) so the bass are a bit sluggish yet. I have caught more on jigs with minnows than I have casting at shorelines.
