      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 .

Bad Medicine Lake

Recommended Posts

Anyone ever fish this lake? We went down there last year because we heard of the great bite but we only got small 1 pound trout if that. Not many at that . We stayed at a very nice camp ground(not sure I can say the name here) but we loved the trip because of the great place we stayed.We want to go back. mostly because of the camp ground. Wouldn't mind an excuse to go back but we just couldn't get into the big trout that we were told about.What do they bite on down there? Fishing??????? for Info.LOL thanks

THAT'S why you didn't catch any large fish. that lake has been pounded hard over the last several years with word of a "hot bite". More harvest going on than fish coming in, with a lot of large fish going home in the cooler. Only one way to get big fish in a put and take fishery, and that's to leave some go.

The lake is beautiful and I can understand why anyone would want to fish it. I'd say to come back again, but not expect to catch any large trout. However, there are some great walleyes and large pike to be caught (fat from eating all the small trout). There is also a blossoming smallmouth fishery there.

It's hard to keep a good bite a secret anymore.
