      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 .

A couple Hayward area lakes

Recommended Posts

I was going to post this in the Hayward forum, but it looks like it gets about 10 posts per year. ;-)

I'm planning a trip with my Dad and brothers in early October. I have narrowed it down to two lakes and curious if anyone has fished for bass on those lakes and has any thoughts or feedback.

The two options are:

1. "Quiet Lakes" Chain of Lost Land, Teal and Ghost Lakes

2. Birchwood Lakes - Chetac, Red Cedar, Birch, Hemlock

Feel free to email me at shiltsy AT gmail DOT com if you don't want to reveal details. I'm just working to setup a fun trip where we have some decent action.

Thanks as always!

I was out on chetek and birch about 2 weeks ago. We fished the channel between the lakes with limited success. Once we were in chetek the pads were the hot ticket, many good sized bass in that lake. We had some fun fishing around the islands also. I would love to make it back out there for more than the afternoon we were out there. A lot of fishy waters in that area.

Lost Land and Teal are pretty good, fished them the past couple of summers, some good sizes in those two. They are connected so if you don't do to well on one, you can easily move to the other.

I think the first weekend in October there is the Hayward musky tournament on some of those lakes. It might get a little crowded.

We go on a vacation on Chetac in mid-September, and the bass are usually biting pretty good. The lily pads are usually producing pretty well, and there are plenty bass under the docks throughout the lake, and in fallen trees. Basically anwhere you can find some thick cover. We usually fish Jawbreaker spoons and frogs over the pads, and senkos/flukes under the docks and near timber.
