      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 .

Fished Mille Lacs today

Recommended Posts

Well I said I would post up some results from the fishing today on Mille Lacs. While we had a good day (saw a bunch of fish) it wasn't a great day (didn't land any). We started out on the north end at 0500 this morning. Had a smallish muskie follow up not long after we started. Caught a northern as well. Both of those came on a Suick. That was all for the north end. Motored our way down to the south end of the lake and started fishing rock reefs. Only thing that the rocks produced was a follow by a smallmouth and a big walleye. The walleye followed and tried to kill a 10 inch Manta. Finally gave up on the rocks and sought out the weeds. Once we found the weeds, we found the fish. In all we saw 10 fish and had one hookup that didn't work out. Basically everything was working......we raised fish on Eagletails, Suicks, HellHounds, and Lifelike Perch. Biggest fish that we got up to the boat was pushing the 47-48" mark. Even with the wind out of the north the lake was pretty calm. Running all the way from the south end to the north end was actually a nice ride......and you can't say that very often on the Big Pond. Looking forward to getting out there again! whistle

Thanks for the report Bret! At least you are seeing fish, so not that all bad. How was the traffic on the lake? A lot of standers (muskie fishermen) out there? I'll be hitting Mille Lacs hard starting in a couple weeks like the rest.

I was really surprsied at the amount of traffic on the lake. It was minimal at best!! We saw a couple of guys punching skies, but the majority were fishing eyes (unless they were jigging for muskies). 7 and 8 mile flat were covered with walleye guys and that is where we saw most of the boats. We got off the lake at 1230, so they muskie guys might have come out later...........
