      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 .

Minaki Area Reports

Recommended Posts

Heading up to the Minaki area this weekend for 5 days and primarily focusing on muskie, but will mix in a little walleye fishing as well. Will be fishing Big and Little Sand and some of the connecting lakes. I am really excited about the trip, but have never been to this area before and am looking for a little help.

Anyone been up in this area lately that has a report they would like to share? Not looking for specific spots but more for general areas that I should keep my eye out for (weeds/rocks/transition areas). What depths should I key on and what presentations typically work best this time of year.

Also, does anybody know when turnover typically takes place up in this area.

Feel free to email me if you would like.

I'll give you one very basic, yet very effective tip.

Anytime you see a buoy fish it. And fish it thoroughly and slowly. If you see one fish there, it might not be alone. Also, get a map. Pick out a milkrun of spots that have rock markings.

Firetiger Weighted Suick in September can be a mean bait.

Thanks MuskyBrian.

Speaking of mpas, do you know where I could get a good quality map of this lake?

I haven't been able to locate one yet, other than the very generic map I downloaded off of a resort HSOforum.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks again.

Not sure, I would hit google hard. There is some type of Canadian hydraulics map that they make that has all the markings on it. I think there is a hot spots map available as well
