      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 .

Rainy has a good bite going for large fish for the last year and a half so for a larger trophy that would be a lake to look at. Leech sounds like it is going well this year. Kab puts out some niced sized fish, and you can't overlook lake of the woods as a top eye destination. Closer to home I'd say Redwing and Lake Pepin. Lots of great walleye waters around the state.

Leech was pretty incredible a week ago during the FLW tournament. I've never caught more walleyes between 20-26" in my life. Pretty phenomenal fishing and we caught them on many presentations as well.

Minnetonka, The best lake for all species of fish. Best time to fish middle of week mornings. NO crowds. Pick a fish any fish. That is unless you travel north. My best fishing experience Lake of the wood.

If I had to pick one lake to fish for the rest of my life it would be Leech.

As for which lake I fish the most though, it's much closer to home and not much more than a duck slough...

Mille Lacs is putting out right now. If you want a meal, might as well go somewhere else, but if you want to have a blast catching big fish, it's a great place to be. It is a bit tough to crack that 28 inch mark, but no kidding, the average fish is 25-26 inches. Where else can you do that in Minnesota right now?

The Minnesota river. Many pigs have been getting caught on bullhead bait while fishing for flatheads. Some outings, those pesky eyes won't leave ones bait along.

Sounds like I should make a ML run for a few days.

    • Got skunked. Gave up after the second day and went grouse hunting instead. Had better luck doing that
    • Real nice night Monday night.  International Space Station was doing a fly-by.  When it topped the horizon, it was over southeast Alberta and when it crawled into the earth's shadow it was over the east edge of Wisconsin in just a little over 4 minutes.  Not all of these have the same white balance setting.  I messed with it to see what I liked better.  The tree was light painted with a small LED flashlight.  Opinions and critiques are welcome.
    • I have a 3.2 L Cooks Essentials digital that I bought first. Not big enough. So I bought a 5.2L manual Bella. You definetly want to get a bigger one. As for manual or not.....less to go wrong with a manual. My Bella holds more food than the smaller one and works great. I use the Cook's Essentials only when I have 2 things to make. Plus the manual costs less. The Bella sells for about  $75. Digitals will sell for over $100. Four other members of my family now also have  them.
    • I guess I started this thread but never gave model name lol. I have the cozyna model air fryer its been great unit and so far non stick surface has been holding up well in dishwasher after every use. Super easy clean up.
    • We really didn't shop around much.... Just bought one off of amazon with good reviews
