      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 .

Have heard there are smallmouth bass in Roy Lake and that there is decent cabins there too. Might like to spend three days fishing. Am thinking end of June might be good. We would bring our own boat.

Any thoughts from those who have been there?

The fishing is good but the earlier the better and this spring I would go in May. The state park is decent which is where some cabins are located. The wind can be a real challenge on this lake and for that matter all the lake in this area.

If you bring your own boat, you can also have the opportunity to fish other lakes in the area. There is a lot of good fishing nearby...

Me and my gal are going to be at Roy lake SP this coming weekend. We have not been in that area of SD and are looking forward to getting out there.

Can someone help out with some fishing reports from Roy and the surrounding lakes and maybe some ideas on what is working to catch some fish.

Thanks for the help!

Andy

Roy is a great lake to fish! The action might not be fast and furious like they show on TV, but the average size is great. Be patient, fish shallow, and you can get some very nice walleyes mixed in with the pike and smallmouth. The bays go on forever, don't be afraid to fish the parts that have no cabins or boats in them. You never know what you'll find out there.
