      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 .

Piggie Perch

Thanks to the cold and quick changes, fishing continues to be challenging. The best is yet to come. We will likely be fishing the ice into April, maybe even to Easter. We are full the next ten days but we've got room after that. The last two weeks of March and the first of April should be a rewarding time to come on up.Improving reports are coming in. We taped a show for Waters and Woods Outdoors to be aired with Kevin Gregg on March 24th at 10:30AM on the Midwest outdoors Sports Channel.
Fishing has been picking up for the Jumbo Perch real good here lately, the big sows are starting to stack up getting ready for the Spring spawning run and they are very hungry this time of year. They are starting to move out of the deep water of the main lake and coming to the Minnewaukan Flats. I have had people catching up to a pail and a half of perch all in the one pound range and up to two and a quarter pound range lately, I feel the best is yet to come. The walleyes and northerns are really going to take off nearby as the fresh melting water starts to reach the lake from the northwest. One of our guests brought up a 41" pike two days back. Remember to sharpen your hooks and get your line wet or you'll miss the fun.
