      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 .

How to fish fox lake

Recommended Posts

Based on water clarity, or lack of I should say, I'd be looking at bucktails and spinnerbaits to make some noise and thump off some good vibration. Maybe some cranks with a nice wobble too.

Bring some topwaters, traditionally it's a little earlier in the year that you see the topwater pattern in swing, but on a shallower lake like that with clarity issues, it could be a good option, especially with the warmer weather this week. Look more at the slow creepers or inline lures that will help avoid the blow ups and misses.

Take a look at the post going about the nighttime fishing, same lures will be ones to look at on Fox.

I have only fished Fox once with out any luck. Threw shore lines for about four hours and trolled for about six hours without seeing a fish. The waters very green with the shore lines full of weeds so it's hard to get a bait close to shore. I hear there are big fish there, I think once a person spends some time they will find some nice fish on fox.

I fish Fox Lake a lot. I've caught some nice muskies out of there. Mostly in the fall, once the weeds along the shoreline start to die off. I'd start with some big bucktails with big blades. My biggest was caught on a Hellhound. Try all the shoreline by the power plant, especially the point and around the island. Also the shoreline straight across from the power plant can be good. As for colors, I've had good luck with red, orange, gold or white. I'm heading down there on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Thanks for the input. After the few days for fishing let me know how you did. I'm heading up to Mille Lacs on Thursday to Tuesday to try my luck at some Smallies, Walleye, and if I'm lucky a pig muskie. Next time I'm down to Fox ill bring those colors along. Good Luck to all over the Fourth.

Fished Fox Lake all day on Tuesday and Wednesday until about noon. Did get a 39" Tuesday night. Also caught a nice fat 26" walleye. The weeds are getting pretty thick around the shoreline.
