      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 .

Recommended Posts

I caught 0 fish in june. 1 in july. and 4 in the last week. No monsters but all high 30's to low 40's. Anyone else experiencing a pick up in action over the last week or so?

The last 10 surrounding the moon phase was the ticket! A lot of big fish found my boat. This recent heat is slowing things down a bit. But...my tan is really coming around though!

June, July and August have all been consistent, but I agree that August has been better. We are catching bigger fish, and are having more multiple fish days as of recent. Looking forward to later this week when we are supposed to get some more cloud cover and potential for storms. Some wind would help.

I think the night bite is going to pick up with the warmer water temps from our recent heat wave. That will be refreshing as fishing during the day in this heat with little wind can be tough to say the least.

Had a 46 eat just before 10 am yesterday - Fished all day without a follow and well into the dark to only have a 36 eat at about 10:45 pm Then the dead sea once again.

This heat has gotta go!

Action has picked up a little with this heat wave along with 3footers witout the wind. Hooked up with about a dozen northerns and a short ski last night on the troll, tried casting but the floating weeds are terrible, every cast. Fished tonka with a water temp average of 78-79. Cruisers in every direction. Saw a lot of muskie anglers out there well into the night. Hope they had more luck. All the fish came from trolling edges. Also got sandwich last night a few times between huge cruisers on plane....on a weekday. Guessing more cruisers will be out tonight with the weather expected.

I hope the heat brings some action tonight. I could use some! Probably stay out awhile after dark and see what's happening. Gotta stay local instead of moving to different lakes each time out.
