      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 .

Docks??

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if it is best to fish docks in the evening on the sunny side of the lake or the part that receives the shade first? I seem to always find myself fishing (docks included) on the shaded parts of the lake in the evenings when maybe I should be spending more time in the sun? Any suggestions on this?

Docks are cover, and fish will be on them just about any time. I prefer to fish the ones in the sun as the sun tends to hold the fish in the shaded areas. Makes them a little more predictable. However, that said, you can catch plenty of fish on a shaded bank or when its overcast. The fish are just not as predicable as to where they will be in my opinion. The good news to fishing areas like that, you can usually fish those areas faster with baits like spinnerbaits/chatterbiats, jigs and cranks... rather than having to skip under into the shade.

Great point Deitz,

I always seem to be going to docks that have sun with shade under them. Seems like the bass tuck themselves under the dock where there is shade, vs the shaded side where they are going to be moving around and not tight under the docks.

I had a pretty good day last Tues on Tonka skipping the shady side docks. Lost a pig per usual, but did get a 18.25" Smallie! I know - Smallie, but there it was and a handfull of 14-16" largies.

Some docks had nothing while some had a few. Went to the sunny side and caught a couple, but then sun was going down fast. I think they are all over right now.
