      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 .

Hi, just got home from that area. Bite was tough. Weather was a huge factor. Very inconsistent. Detour bite was ok. Ran from 60 to 102. Dipsey's best with meat rig. lots of fish around. Never seen so many lookers tho. We had quality fish but the total numbers were down. Most were mid to high teens. boats were scattered from inside Detour to well past Summer. gap was ok. great time tho. sounded as tho the Manistique bite was hot.

Back from Detour yesterday. After 3 1/2 days we got to fish about 8 hours. Wind, wind, wind and more wind. At Detour nothing going except a few lakers at 50ft. No salmon to speak of. Nets are a major problem. At least 5 nets between the Sate launch and the lighthouse. The locals are not happy, spoke to a bunch of them. Looks like Detour has taken a hit with nets and lack of recent salmon plants. PS- I did lose a $125.00 rod and reel off Raber when the holder let go in the 25mph wind and waves, what fun. Still a beautiful place to visit. Next trip to Brainerd, Mn on Sept.2nd for a month.

Cannot wait, our 7th Sept. there. Best to all!
