      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 .

My brother went out last night on WBL and got two. A 42" and a 47", both between 2:30 and 3:30 am, on his beat up DCG. I will post pics for him when he gets them to me. Nice job! smile

Nice, way to go Erik... I was on WB earlier in the evening like 5:00pm to 8:30, and we had one follow. Guess we should have been out MUCH later.

BTW don't you work Erik? haha

Erik,

Nice looking fish!

Curious: Any observations in that 1/2 hour window? Anything change weather-wise? Or simply the right place at the right time?

It'll sound hokey and dumb, but we just lost our dad and about 5 minutes before the first fish I saw a shooting star and thought maybe the old guy was watching - maybe he helped a bit too. smile

I may just chalk it up to dumb luck!! As far as the weather, nothing major but I did notice a bank of clouds moving in AFTER I got the first one - they may have been there all along and I just didn't notice. I wish I was better at paying attention to that stuff. There were also a few very distant lightning flashes but nothing dangerous. It was also really weird that the water temp where the fish were was about 2.5 degrees warmer than the first couple spots where I had not action - I was surprised to see such a difference in temp in close proximity to each other. I found water as cold as 68.5 last night. These were also my first fish on the big 13 by Mayhem. I also missed two other fish ealier in the night. I was on a bad streak so I hope this will be the slump buster. I was also happy to have two safe releases both for me and the fish.

Quit being so humble... you've forgotten more things about WBL than anybody who knows that lake grin

Way to go on a multi-fish night... like CJAC said, you definitely put in whole lot of time on WBL... and Im fairly sure many of us will be expecting more pictures from you when the fall really arrives...

HugoBox even got me out tonight. But, of course, it was Gus this time who got the lucky lure... a 42-43" at about 12:30. I'll post picks later, it was a beauty nice and wide. This was his first musky on purpose, and biggest fish ever.

Erik had two strikes next to the boat but didn't hook them, and I went NADA, as usual smile

Here are pics of Gus' 42":
