      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!!!

Okay folks, it is getting to that time of year to start heading over to Lake Michigan for salmon.  Lets get those reports rolling in.  Preferably, port you were fishing, depths you found productive and rigs and baits that you had success with.  I am headed to the bank reef in Sturgeon bay this year and will be at the lake from July 13th to the 18th.  I am learning new water as I have never fished this area before so it should be a good time.  Sounds like the bite is starting to take off over there.  I just love the squeal of the drag in the morning!

Wow, pretty quiet on this thread.  Here is a second hand report from a friend that is out fishing.  White and chrome flashers with green or blue flies, green or blue proking spoons have been good with blackfin tuna being a solid producer.  Moonshine glow spoons in hot lips, emminator, bluefin tuna and happy meal have been taking fish with the RV series producing slightly better then the standard spoons.  Surface temps are mid 50's up and down the coast from Keewaunee to Gils Rock with a temperature break at 50' down.  Kings are hitting from 80-150' in the top 70' of water, Steelhead are going strong over the deeper water 200-500' and taking spoons up high with orange and red being productive.  Heading out Tuesday and looking forward to 5 days of the salmon grind!
