      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Devil's slow fishing conditions...

Recommended Posts

For visiting fishermen planning trips to Devil's Lake update:

Just got back from a long trip to Devil's lake. About 3 weeks stay. Just to say out of town fisherman lured to Devil Lake's big fishing attractions this year has been met mostly with slow fishing conditions due to weather. Although the bite has been warm and cold mostly.

About the same time last year the fish bite was really good. Success has only been in the hands of residing nearby resident locals.

The bite for the following fish so far as I have experienced it over the 3 weeks:

Walleyes are fair with my catch being about 26 fish, Northern's are active and plenty as usual as I must've caught over 40 fish, and White Bass are spotty and picky but I still manage to catch about 56. Let just say last year my numbers were double if not at least tripled.

I really say and maybe it's just my opinion and experience over the last few years,
but if you really want to fish Devil's lake, I would wait until late June or early July this year. I believe by then that the fish bite will be back to normal.

Don't let my experience stop you from fishing at Devil's Lake.. there is still tons of fish to catch, just plan well ahead of time and make sure your days have sunlight and warmth as that affects fishing alot and can be the deciding factor between catching alot or nothing at all.

Anyhow... I still think Devil's Lake is still one of the best places to fish in the midwest, so have fun and good luck.
