      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 .

Trip to Florida Bass fishing

Recommended Posts

My Daughter is getting married on Sept 30th near Orlando. I have a chance to go Bass fishing 1 day while I am down there. I will have to find a guide service. Does anyone know of any guide service in the Orlando area that they would recommend? I googled a few places but maybe someone else has had a great experience and would like to share the guides name.

Also what lake would would you pick if you had the chance to go?

Lake Toho(shallow stained)

Lake Okeechobee (shallow stained)

Lake Conway (Deep Clear).

Thanks for the input.

Bob

I have fished all of the lake you mention. Also fished Stick Marsh farm 13 (if you put stick marsh farm 13 in a search engine you will get the site with recent fishing report) I really like Toho the best but if you dont know the lake fishing it can be tough. Everywhere you look seems should hold huge fish but they are not easy to find. The most fun I have had fishing in the Orlando area is the Winter Park Chain in Winter Park. A chain of 6-7 smaller lakes with good #'s and size. Enjoy your trip.

My dad use to be a bass guide in the late 80's on Toho and he always said it was one of the best lakes he has ever fished. He said the shiner fishing was absolutely amazing. Im not sure of any guides and my dad passed away 2 years ago but i would definitely look into a guide for lake Taho...We have a mount on our wall at home of a fish that went 12lbs 4oz and then the next week he caught a 13lb 1oz fish. Good luck and have fun

If you are in Orlando why not fish at Walt Disney World?

They have great guides and huge fish - although they are catch and release only if you're looking for a mount.

Thanks Guy's,

I was thinking Toho was my best bet as I want to top my personal best of 6.2# But after reading the Stick Marsh 13 site that Jim Porter has I will give him a shout and see if he has any openings.
