      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 .

Shamineau help?

Recommended Posts

I will be working in the area and I am thinking about trying Shamineau the next couple of evenings for the first time. Any suggestions on where to start? Lures? depths? structure? I am not looking for your secret GPS coordinates, just a little info to narrow down my search a little.

I would use the West end access.

This is a sleeper / Secret Muskie Lake, which means no one wants to say much

including the locals.

Muskies are doing well out there! Work the Island and Look for main lake cabbage.

Northern pike between 24 and 36 inches must be released.

Best of luck

That sleeper lake can really put you to sleep, it is best fished after labor day. It is that multiple fish lake or you can put up zero's for weeks on end. Talked to many locals who have found dozens upon dozens of dead ones washed up on his shoreline. Better fish it in the early am or you'll go nuts with the tubers, water skiers, jet skis, etc. They roar through the best fishing spots on the lake and now that the tullibee has recently been stocked by the thousands, I don't blame the fish for heading out after them in deeper water.

Been very hard out there this year. Saw one active small fish follow in 3 1/2 days of fishing this weekend but managed a 30incher while trolling for northern, go figure. was fishing anywhere from 6-12ft so maybe they are deeper...
