      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 was thinking of heading to the Apostle Islands from Duluth the weekend of the 19th. How is fishing near the islands this time of year?

I typically fish out of Duluth.

Any suggestions would be great!

Fishing can be good this time of year. For lakers, put your baits on the bottom. Magnum spoons, dodger/flashers and flies or spin-n-glos work great. Also, use divers and leadcore to cover the rest of the water column. You never know when you'll go over some salmon, browns, steelies or suspended lakers. Flashers or small dodgers with flies or spoons and clean standard sized spoons work well for these lines. Good luck if you decide to make the trip.

Matt summed it up pretty good.. Fish are now being found in their typical summer patterns and fishing will be more consistant then the past few weeks.

For lakers, try your hands out to the flats. Just through the south channel and east of Madeline Island. 95 to 100 FOW is a good bet to get into some fish. Put most baits right on or very near bottom.
