      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 .

Yeah I got one for you fishinbros...

Don't go out there when the local community college has their canoeing class. :-(

Went out there last Sat morning and was greeted by a dozen canoes out just paddling around the entire area. Most of them kept their distance from the few of us that were shore fishin, except for one that ran over my slip bobber.

Hung out for an hour with out so much as a nibble and called it quits for the day. Too much disturbance from the canoe-ers probably caused the trout to seek refuge.

There are some nice ones out there though. I picked up a couple of 10in rainbows when I took my son out fishing the weekend prior. He was pullin in little sunnies (3-5 inches) just a few feet of shore. And I've seen some nice ones swim by hole when I went out there ice fishing last winter. Just keep your line as small as possible and play the waiting game for them to come cruisin by to see your offering. And when you see a dozen or so canoes out there, head back to your car and find another fishing hole. ha ha ha

Speaking of canoes...when I used to fish it a few years ago, I actually used a canoe and it was very productive. I had the best luck in the evenings casting small rapalas and spinners. I would paddle to the end of the lake where the wind was coming from and set up a drift across the middle of the lake. I would then cast in all directions from the canoe as I drifted the length of the lake. This was a productive tactic and I usually caught several trout and some big ones too. It was also nice because I didn't have to worry about interfering with any of the bank anglers out there. Hope you have access to a canoe and this post helps.
