      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 .

***Minnetonka help***

Recommended Posts

I went out to tonka last week and man the fishing was tough. I wanted to try milfoil fishing, but didn't catch a thing. Did it for hours. When milfoil fishing to target dirty water, clear, or stained? I tried weedlines, points, humps, channels, and couldn't pull more than 2 fish from any spot. Nothing over 2 pounds either. What am I doing wrong? Have ppl been doing better in clear or dirty water? Not looking for specific holes, but any help would be great. Thanks in advance.

If you wanted to switch things up, move to the deep weedline and try to find schools of bluegills...watch your graph. The bass should be close by.

We found a good bite late afternoon on a weekday.

Tonka is one of those lakes where you just have to cover water sometimes in order to find a school of nice ones... you can catch them from 2'-20' of water. smile

I agree on bass from 2 - 20 ft of water. I have had some great days on Tonka this time of the year fishing in 15 - 20 ft of water. Key for me has been rock when fishing this deep. Look for humps with rock or small points on the big reefs with rock. It will take some time but it may well be worth it.

We had some crazy luck on the docks today right before the storm. I even picked up a 5 lbs fish. We caught over 25 in an hour and a half. All on a sinko. It was amazing how they just flipped a switch and turned on. We even picked up a 16" Smallie.

Well there are two bays that are colors. I would say yes, but I am not saying which. The pattern was under lifts with big covers, boats that were completely out of the water and deeper weeds available. If we went to those areas we pulled 8 or 9 out, compared to other docks that we would pick up 1 or 2. I never fish bass so have fun boys and girls.
