      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 .

Monument Bay Area Advise

Recommended Posts

Our party will be in the Monument Bay island area next week. Any suggestions for color, type of presentation, bait, depth, etc. I will post the following week on how it went. Definitely not looking for exact spots just what has been working there

Go all the way to the VERY VERY back - its called "no name lake" on the map. Go through the entrance and keep to the right. Fish that right hand side along the rock wall and just go back and forth from the entrance down a ways and back again. Slowly bounce 1/4 oz jigs tipped with a bright green twister and a leach. You will probably be in 10 to 12 feet of water just a boat length or so off the rock wall and you will catch nice eyes and smallies. depending on the year...it may get weed choked quickly - but if you hit it right - its a great area. Good luck!

Hey Ducker...sorry should have clarified. I wasnt up there this year - its just a good spot we have found from prior years. We were up there about this time in June before and had good success in that area. My buddy went there a week or so after and it was already getting pretty weed choked.

We fished out of Youngs Bay resort June 7-14. We fished Bishops Bay mostly but did fish in Lilly and Monument Bays.

There is a hump on the west side of Cochrane Island in Monument Bay

that was holding a few walleye and some very nice small mouth.
