      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 .

Is Oct 17- Oct 21st too late to plan a trip?

Recommended Posts

Personally I would rather take a duck hunting trip this time of year, but I promised my buddy a trip this year. I tried to talk him into a hunting trip but he wont even hold a gun.

Im worried that we might hit the turnover. Do you guys have any favorite fall lakes. I was thinking vermillion, but worried about turnover. I live in the metro, but willing to travel. I just want to get my buddy, who doesnt fish much into some nice action. Thanks

Fall fishing for eyes cant be beat! I have spent many days fishing Winnie, Leech, LOW in the fall and had my best fishing then!

If you're worried about turnover hit a lake that doesn't turn over like Mille Lacs. Not even a concern there and the fishing should start turning on soon.

I'll be on the Cass Lake chain during the same time period.

I don't think it's ever too late to take a trip, as long as there's not ice building, that time frame should line up perfectly for the October Full Moon phase, lots of great choices to be had as already mentioned, Mille Lacs should have a good night trolling bite going if the water temps drop a little more, Winnie, Leech is just a sleeper waiting to explode, just pick some big water and have fun.

I was reading in the weekly outdoor news, that big stone lake near ortanville is really great in the fall. My neighbor has land near there and invited me to use his lodging. I might just go there because my buddy sleeps in till noon anyway. That way I can pheasant or duck hunt till my non-hardcore outdoorsman friend wakes up. Killing two birds with one stone.....pun intended...

LOW/Rainy River. Fish the gap area as well as the river. Many places to stay and the walleyes should be in the river after the shiners good by then. Im headed up in a week or 2 myself.

Thats a great time to go out fishing. I just booked at Appledoorns for the 17th and 18th. Should be an excellent walleye bite on ML. I hope!

Big Stone can be very good. There are some great perch and white bass opportunuties there as well. The hunting is pretty too I hear. wink

I'd hit up the Rainy River. I've never been but have heard some great reports up there this time of year. As far as hot spots, just check the lotw and rainy river forums, there's usually really good updates on there.
