      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 .

Fishing Devils Lake in October???

Recommended Posts

My bro and I are planning a duck hunting trip to ND for the non-resident opener. We are planning on getting our limit early enough in the day that we will have time to do some fishing. We have never fished devils lake before and are wondering what to expect. Will the landings be busy? Is any of the water off limits due to the indian reservation? What is the best tactic for walleyes that time of year? It would be nice to find a landing on the SE side of the lake. Do we need to worry about busting our boat prop with all the stumps and what not? Sorry for all the questions but I am just trying to figure a few things out so we have a basic idea of what we are doing. Thanks in advance!!!!

As for october fishing usally its the bridges (current area), or shallow areas right next to the DEEPEST part of the area of lake your fishing. Your looking for a landing on the SE side well thats going to be EastBay campground or Black Tiger bay landing..I suggest east bay. If your planning on just half the day there I would launch from the campground and drive to the woods rutten road bridge and fish the north west side of it. You cannot go wrong with green jigs and half a crawler threaded on it in Oct. Or a lindy rig with a crawler.

Dont worry about stumps just stay out from the shore atleast 200 feet, but not a bad idea to bring an extra shear pin with.

[note from admin: please read forum policy before posting again. thanks!]
