      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 .

WI Fishing Trip?

Recommended Posts

I’m in The Twin Cities and my buddy is in Chicago. We’re trying to meet in WI for some bass fishing (preferably large mouth) somewhere in the middle. I’d love it if someone could point us in the direction of some good lakes to check out. We would need to rent a boat and have no problem camping if need be. We’re looking at the last weekend in June or first weekend in August. Which brings up another question: would fishing be better 7 days later in the year? We were planning this trip for the fall, but family things on both sides hacaused a few changes. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Miller Dam, or Chequamegon Waters Flowage has good fishing and a campground - no boat rentals on the lake that I know of. You'd have to pick one up in a bigger town en route from the Cities or Chicago. Its east of Gilman if you want to do a search.

I'd say the cranberry bogs down by Fort McCoy but not sure about camping plus the lakes tend to be small and access can be tricky.

Another option might be north of the Dells area with Petenwell and Castle Rock flowages. Would be a good middle road area, however I don't know how the bass fishing is on those lakes. Believe they are more walleye/crappie lakes, but I could be wrong.

Wish I had something perfect in mind for you but nothing comes to mind right now. Hope its a start for you anyways.
