      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 .

Wisconsin Fishing Reports & Outdoor Report for May 19, 2016

Recommended Posts

Sun and warmer weather during the day has returned in full force this week, though some late evenings and early mornings are still well below 50 degrees. While this has increased fire danger to "high" in the northeast and northwest parts of the state, counties in the central and southern regions are at "moderate" and "low" levels respectively. Trilliums are in bloom this week near the campground at Potawatomi State ParkPhoto Credit: DNRThe current warm spell has increased water temperatures into the upper 50s to low 60s on many northern lakes and this has spurred on a slug of bass and panfish spawning activity. Both largemouth and smallmouth bass are starting their spawning period and many dished out areas have been observed in the shallows. Crappie are also full into their nesting period and many dark-colored males have been observed in the shallows along weed lines and brushy cover. Larger bluegill have also been congregating near shallow water and spawning colonies may start showing up in the next week or so.Despite strong winds, a late week cool down and highly variable success, fishing pressure steadily increased last weekend into this week. Walleye success has been very erratic, but there have been a few reports of good catches. Jig and minnow combinations continue to be bait of choice -- though leaches and crawlers are quickly becoming more popular. Warming water temperatures have mayfly nymphs starting to move, which will help draw the fish up shallow.
