      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 .

Waconia help...

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I normally don't like writing posts like this, but I am taking a buddy of mine out bass fishing on Sat. am and I've never specifficly targeted bass on Waconia. If anyone has any advice or pointers on where to look for some action and what they might be biting on I'd really appreciate it. My buddy's mom just passed from cancer and he's had a rough time lately so I am hoping to show him a good time. My e-mail is cup_w@hotmail.com if anyone would rather e-mail me some info.

Thanks for any help you're willing to offer.

there is alot of different places that you can hit on waconia. The best advice that i can give ya is to hit outside weed lines. Alot of the bigger fish hang out in the deeper water and sit on the outside weedlines to catch bait fish!

Thanks a bunch fever!! I really appreciate it. I will definately let you guys know how it goes. No worries on the CPR either... I fish muskies hard (90% of the time) so CPR is what I am all about.

Bass on waconia is really easy, white spinner off any weeds and you will do fine.

favorite spots: center, rock dock, and the beach area

Deep is the best bet in this lake, but I have had my best luck in about 1.5 feet of water. Caught some decent fish and 1 hawg in 20 minutes fishing up shallow

That actually varries IMO, deep on weekends when its busy or when its really hot. Otherwise 6-8 FOW will do nicely.

But thats just me smile

Did someone say muskie steaks? I just got a new electric filet knife so if you need some help let me know. Charcoal grill, little lemon and a tasty steak, life doesnt get much better.

OK, stop it. Otherwise those musky zealots are going to invade our space here. We can allow Rob Kimm in here and that's it. We all know that he would rather fish bass anyway.
