      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 .

Forest lake fishing...

Recommended Posts

Been fishing forest lake the past few weeks, I was pre-fishing befor mikes bait on 8's tournament Sunday the 26th, was out Friday the 24th, caught my 1st muskie 40 1/2, took a few days, but I'm hooked on musky fishing for life now, I guess what im asking is what lure/color has had the best luck and what size fish have been pulled up there this year Ive personally heard of a 54 and two or three other 50inchers pulled up in forest lake.

If you subscribe or get a chance to check this week's lake feature in Outdoor News, they have Forest Lake featured theis week. They stated that the biggest they have heard fo this year from the locals was a 48" and several last year slightly over 50". Could be a few in there that are that size possibly. Congrats on your first musky! That's always a rush! As far as lures/colors go...there is more out there to catch fisherman than will ever catch fish! Make sure you have a variety and learn how to work them properly.

Both natural and bright colors work on Forest. Like said b/4, its good to carry a variety of colors. Also, all kinds of lures will catch fish. I've caught them on hair, jerk-baits, cranks, plastics and toppers. You can't pinpoint it down to just a couple of lures.

I've been out on forest for the past month now working it real hard, and the natural colors are working the best but a few of the brighter colors come in handy at times. And a variety of lure are working for me. So I mean the table is pretty much wide open.
