      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 .

musky behavior?

Recommended Posts

So i was out on a lake for the second time today but a totally different time of the year from the first time. Bot times I was out there were multiple muskies swimming around with thier heads out of the waterand thier mouths wide open. We've only ever seen them doing it on this lake and only around these two reed islands on the lake. I was just curious if anyone knew why they did it because I've never seen this before in prolly 10 years of musky fishing.

I've seen it a few times in the past. I usually see it happen during the middle of summer on hot days. However, other people have witnessed it happening during the cooler months also. I have heard others say that they do it when they have something stuck in their throat and they are trying to swallow or dis-lodge that object. That very well could be why. I don't think anyone knows for sure. Also, you can try the search feature on this site for more info. because I remember this topic coming up before.

Pitch a top water at them, i've converted at least 5-6 fish this year with a creeper or hawg wobbler when they're doing this.
