      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 .

Upcoming Full Moon thoughts

Recommended Posts

I was just wondering what some of your guys's thoughts are for the full moon on Saturday. I'm headed back home and was going to fish West Battle Lake. As much as I hate to leave the Bemidji area on the upcoming full moon, I think West Battle should produce a fish or two. Does anyone get on this body of water much? Let me know! Best of luck to you all.

Hopefully RK will chime in as he had interesting comments on this in March in his seminar at the Expo in Blaine.

Yes, it's an opportune time, but everyone (us) sees it that way, and the pressure from anglers is way up. Point being other factors weather related can be as much of a trigger, they just don't become active this sole time of the month. The solunar charts don't tell the fish to go to a certain location at a certain time. Stack the odds and don't just bank on a window, as other factors will alter it. Don't simply follow the crowd either....

That said, I'll be on Mille Lacs this weekend, but looking to find the window within the window, if that makes sense.

Good points Cjac! Plus, with the way this season has gone, who knows what these fish are going to do. From my perspective, and that of many others, this is just a wacky year for Muskies. Pick your spots, and don't be afraid to go against the grain. Something different than the other guy might be exactly what the fish are looking for!

yikes - leaving Bemidji for WBL - we did find some nice fish on WBL at the end of june in the cabbage around the holes in the west basin. i personally think they move a bit shallower than you'd expect when they want to eat, sand, inside edge stuff, so that's what I would key on if I was fishing WBL this weekend. despite the way that lake treats me sometimes it's hard not to go back, wish i had a few solid nights to put in there. good luck

Yep, I'll be in the middle of a week long Vermillion trip. I'm sure there won't be many people out on Sat. with the full moon...
