      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 .

Anything happen out of Saxson.

Depth, water temps etc?

Second question?

Does anyone know how the Coast Gaurd treats the Wisconsin/Michigan border. I was told by a former foresty employee there is 5 mile tolerance. Anyone confirm this? Just about finished up with the summer projects boat.

Havent heard much on the Saxon area as of late, but am sure folks are catching fish out of there. Water temps are probably still cool, so fishing from the top down would be my method to finding fish over there right now.. Starting in 50 FOW and working deeper to find the fish.

For the MI/WI line, not sure what you are asking? For sure, license wise, I would have both if you plan to cross back and forth while fishing.

Good luck and let us know how you do.

I have fished out of Saxon my whole life and I never heard of the 5 mile tolerance. From what I have been told is once you are East of the Montreal River you are in Michigan Waters. And for me it is easy as I only fish Planner boards in the area so I am usually pretty close to shore.
