      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 .

Where To Find The Big Smallies

Recommended Posts

If you were fishing a small Canadian lake this time of year,with lots of shoreline structure, but no descernable structure in the lake, where would you look for the biggest smallmouth?

I would look for shallow flats, bigger the better, then once you've fished them start on the smaller flats. Points and inside turns along the edges of the flats should have some fish. And any wood along the shoreline should be good. Good luck I'm jealous.

Shoreline structure. I'd just fish the perimeter of the lakes. Our sm bass are still spawning here...probably the tail end now. I'm sure they're at least a couple of weeks behind up there, so they should be still relating to the gravel/rock/boulder mixture. Pay special attention to the occasional isolated big boulder as they often nest there. They also like wood if you can find it.

Good luck,
