      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 .

Guys,

I am new to Musky fishing but have become addicted. Anyone give me a few pointers for this time of year. Fish shallow, fish deep, weedlines, etc? Any general tips on lakes in the West Metro? I have been out to Independence several times but looking for a different lake to try.

Thanks

I feel for you. When you start spending every dime you have on either gas for the boat or the truck to drive all around the state looking for the hot bite or the elusive 50, and the few other nickels you can spare are spent on every bait imaginable, you are truly afflicted. Man I love it! I'll let the other guys chime in on tactics, as they are more technically sound, knowledgeable, and experienced, but welcome to the club!

Being you're in champlin Eagle Lake 169 @ 63rd Ave is a fun little lake a short drive away, as is Lake Johanna off snelling pay attention to the wake/no-wake times, also try the north and east ends off of the landing, and the sunken island middle of the lake straight out from the landing.
