      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 .

NW Mille lacs?

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking about checking out the northwest side of Mille Lacs. I'm not too familiar with lake, so I'm looking for some info. What are the recommend accesses on the northwest side, preferably with plowed roads. Any info on the Pike bite lately and area?

I'm assuming bait shops around there are still selling sucker minnows.

My mar, Terry's, I think it is Sportsman that is just north of the holiday gas station on the left side of 169.

Garrison Bay or a long the first break. Lots of people are fishing the south end bays for pike. Seeing you are looking at the north west side I would head to the mud and find the perch. I am sure most of the bait shops will try to carry suckers as long as they can.

Head to the mud and find the perch? Hundreds or thousands of anglers have tried that already this year. I haven't heard many that found the perch. Maybe I'm in the minority, but on the south side this year there weren't enough perch to count on two hands.

The reports I have been getting is the north end of the lake flats have been providing some perch for those willing to look for them. If you just sit in one spot you are more than likely not going to do very well. The south side of the lake is bays and gravel not much for mud fkats. The bug hatches are starting to happen on the mud fkatsand that is where the perch are feeding.

New regs for Mille Lacs this year when it comes to pike. Ten fish limit. One may be longer than 30 inches. Angling season closes March 29, 2015.
