      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 .

Hey guys,

My fiance and I are planning a trip to the Angle for our honeymoon. Were planning on camping at Youngs Bay and doing some fishing.....any advice for fishing the 2nd week in July? Ive never fished the angle before. We are mainly looking for walleyes and pike. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! THANKS!

Great place to go for a honeymoon. Hang on to that gal!

I was there a few weeks ago, but I haven't been there at that time. My first choice at that time would be to fish the mid lake humps. There are several reefs south of there that should hold some large eyes. Hopefully shomeone just coming back from there can post a report to help you out.

Good Luck!

Figure out how to get to the Bridges island area. Lots of underwter structure - lots of fish - some pretty big in mid-summer. The hotter the weather, the better the fishing. Just about any underwater hump that tops off at 20' or so should hold fish.

I agree with Heartman. The first place I would start would be the reefs near Bridges Island. Bridges will be right off the west side of Big Island. Maybe 15+ miles south of Youngs Bay?? You'll need a decent size boat and keep your eye on the weather, as it can change fast. Have fun!

Good choice, my opinion, fish the canada side, only a half dozen miles or so to fabulous fishing, fish mid lake reefs with jigs and minnows, very rocky and snaggy, very full of fish. You can always get away from the wind! Know the rules in canada! Also if you pull up to a reef with even one boat on it go to another, there are many many of them. You will find out why I say this if you try to share a reef with a canadian.
