      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Trolling for northern with upcoming unstable weather?

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I will be going over by Webb Lake area (NW Wisconsin)

to troll for northerns. I plan on trolling outside weed edges in 12-20' of water. The question is, the weather is suppose to be a chance of t-storms all the rest of the week, what can I do to optomize my chances of catching fish with this kind of weather (other than rain gear)?

Loaded question. In the past I've had fantastic luck with catching pike when a front is nearing. I've also learned to generally avoid fishing right before a storm comes through, because it's just not worth the risk of being on the water with lightning. The teenager killed in their front yard in yesterday's storm further reinforces my decision.

I usually don't have much luck after heavy rains or heavy thunderstorms. I fished last night with my brother in law after the heavy rain and we boated only 2 small fish.

I will try to get a little fishing in this weekend, but I'll be keeping close tabs on weather and when it's coming through.

CJ I know trolling is a no no on some wisconsin lakes better check the regs.

The law is it is actually banned statewide except in waters where it is listed as permitted. However, all of Polk, Barron, Rusk, Washburn, Burnett, and Douglas county permit motor trolling (so pretty much all those along the border and north of St. Croix county). He is certainly allowed to troll.
