      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 .

How do you fish miltona and what can I expect as far as weeds and structure? Thanks I've never been there and am headed there in August for hopefully some muskie action. Any help would be appreciated.

Lots of structure out there and by August there will be a few weed choked areas. Not a lake you want to fish without a GPS and a chip. It's a tough lake to fish. I have spent many grueling days out there with little to no success. To be honest, for me to keep a good attitude when I fish Miltona, I go on the lake never expecting to catch much. So, when I don't catch anything I'm not as disappointed. There are times though when it can surprise you. The pressure from muskie boats has at least quadrupled in the last 3-4 years.

Lots of structure is an understatement!!! There are weedlines all around the outside of the lake. Most of them are pretty clean weeds with good break lines on them. You can also go out in the middle of the lake and fish on the flats. Tons of structure there. DH had it right...you need a chip in your locator to read all of the different structure and stay on it. If you are looking for a very quick learning curve, hire Brad Hoppe from Musky Mayhem. He has been on this lake for a very long time and knows it probably as well if not better than anyone.

Hey guys - Headed out there tomorrow morning for the first time. How's the north access for space, etc? Looks like its gravel, which is fine as long as there are open spots early on in the morning.

I got some spots marked to hit so we are ready to roll, hopefully some better action then around here as of late. Thanks for any info on the access.

Not sure what you mean by north access and gravel because I have never used that one. The best access on the lake is on the east side of the lake. Lots of parking, but it can fill up pretty fast on weekends at times. There can be a lot of muskie boats some days and there is always a ton of walleye boats out there. If you get there early you should be fine. If not, people park along the road all the time. Good luck.

    • boys........boys.......................boys.................do you to need a time out? a group hug??????????
    • I'll just laugh when you fall because you have a terribly inefficient movement pattern created by a treadmill.  I don't need any sort of medical background to know that you move on the ground (earth) as you pull yourself forward and push yourself away while on a tread mill your just moving without purpose.  Your body will learn from repetition and when you increase the intensity, your body will develop those patterns faster.   Thank you for the attempted digs, I have addressed every one of those questions in the past numerous times.  Its not my fault you cant remember Dick      
    • To answer your question, at peak eclipse I measured 3500 LUX outside, which is brighter than thick clouds. To fish, what happened today was a typical cloud moved in front of the sun.
    • I did, but didn't find anything. Not sure I am doing a proper keyword search however. I believe it is called a termination cap. 
    • So, what is your training that makes you more of an expert than the Cardiac Rehab center of the Mayo Clinic?   You got the 6 week certificate in sales from the Chiropractic Institute?   Seriously, do you have a degree in a health field?  Have you even had any serious scientific training in any field?  Last I recall, didn't you work selling gadgets to Chiropractors or something?  I know you are a big fan of the subluxations and spinal adjustments to cure cancer and diabetes and prevent autism as touted by straight chiropractors.   
    • Here's some footage from the last couple weeks in central and northern WI. Gotta work at it to find the big ones, but managed to find some nice ones lately!  
    • Yup. Like a shopping cart.  
    • Well, being you are not engaging your hamstrings on that treadmill, and you're TRAINING on it!!, you can pretty much guarantee your feet sliding out from underneath you, slipping on the ice next time you encounter it.  Thank you treadmill, best piece of equipment in the gym, for an orthopedic surgeon.   Let me guess, you like to walk slow on it, so its good for you.....?
