      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 .

I had one on last Monday that had to be 50. i released a 40 earlier in the day and this one was in a totally different class. That said I've never caught a 50 - biggest so far is 44 so it may have really only been 44.5... smile

No expert here but the fish I've seen have been deeper than normal - 10+ FOW - which is deeper than I've fished on that lake most years.

You're right on - 10 feet certainly isn't deep. I'm guessing its how I fish the lake, or maybe because of pressure I've changed things up a bit, but in the past 3 or 4 years I've contacted 80% of the fish in less than 5 feet on that lake. I also tend to get out pretty darn early as well - until I can get a jet-skier or wake-boarder to hit a Jackpot I tend to get off BE by about 9AM on weekends.

I had a 50-52 incher boatside earlier this year, but was bass fishing and it ended up snapping my line. I'm willing to go out to BE with someone and show them what seems to be working. My in-laws live right on BE, so they usually have an idea.

KingFisher1 - My in-laws live there too. Due West of the rock pile - 1st place on the north end of the lilly pads. Any chance they're neighbors?

If you're still offering I'd love to go out. I live in Roseville and bought a new boat this year so I spend most of my time on BE still. I've chased a little on WBL and FL but for overall fishing I still like BE.
