      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 .

Weekend Reports.........

Recommended Posts

Short report for me....Mille Lacs is really tough this year. Not a sniff, not even the pike activity we'd normally see in the Fall in the bays on the SE end, though we were still finding green weeds. Walleyes were tough to find too.

I hope for some better reports than mine, fishing or duck hunting......

Hunter caught one small fish, maybe 34, but lost a hawg. Hooked it out on the cast, played it in, made a couple power surges, then decided to let go. Big time fish, easy over 50.

Tried for a few hours in the evening Saturday. Got 1 pike maybe 28", hooked it right next to the eye frown. Guess it was dazzled by my gold/gold/gold double 8. Otherwise didn't see any fish, heard some chasing stuff at the surface (and saw the aftermath), and since nothing else worked we tried trolling prop baits, again with no success.

Spent yesterday on a pike lake closer to home. Fish went nuts once the rain got heavier and the wind died, had numerous doubles and even a triple. Might have been a good time to have been chasing the skis.

Had 4 follows between 10:00- 11:30 on Saturday morning. They were all pretty hot, but couldn't convert them in the eights. Couple were in the 40-45 inch range. SHALLOW and in the remaining green weed patches...

Went out on Rush Fri night from 6:00 to 10:45. Casted to no avail. Trolled for a while, nothing. Waters temp 58-59 deg. very calm just a light breeze. I've been out every week and only seen 1 fish since the middle of August. Hopefully this weekend that will change.

i agree too, anyone know what the deal is with Rush.. i fished i it 3xs last year and a few this year and did not see 1 follow or sign of musky...maybe i was on the wrong lake??? just kidding, but if you look at the stocking info in that lake, there should be a decent population of fish out there... has anyone done well out there or had a really good day out there?
