      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 .

Heading down to Okoboji for the holiday weekend and plan on doing some fishing. It has been about a decade since I have fishing down there. I wasn't sure, but was wondering if you can use two lines? Will be fishing pretty much west okoboji so any tip or locations would be great to hear about!

Yes you can run 2 lines but good luck fishing West O on the 4th weekend. It will be bumper boats out there. Best bet is fish late nights or sun up till 10 am or so. The boat traffic will make the lake unfishable once the pleasure boaters and drunks get up and going. If its nice out there will be a few hundred boats out churning up the water. Might look at fishing Spirit during the day, not sure on whats biting where but at least its not over run by pleasure craft.

i agree with esox. fish spirit during the day. try trolling outside the weed line in 12 to 14 feet of water or cast husky jerk-baits over the weeds in 8 to 10. you could also head out into the basin and pull lead.

Thanks for all the info guys! I was pretty much planning on fishing mostly at night and early morning anyways, cause I figured it would be a zoo during the day!

Im not sure they would even let those people into the zoo. we have all but given up fishing west lake in the summer. Unless its very early in the morning or raining. but sometimes rain doesn't even stop them which makes their pleasure boating very unpleasant.

I fish West almost every weekend except the weekends of the 3 main summer holidays. Helps having 12oz lures with 7/0 hooks grin I'll be on Spirit wind permitting this weekend either pulling bouncers or lead and cranks, muskies are on the back burner for a weekend.
