      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 .

This year was my our first year actively fishing skies and we loved it. Only boated 4 fish towards the end of summer but towards the end we finally started to get the hang of things. Was wondering what tecniques are used in fall vs. summer? can fish still be found in 4-8 ft or do u have to go deeper? what baits are best? I am a fan of spinners and bucktails for the summer... will be fishing forest lake this weekend. any info would be great! thanks and good luck

check out pages 2,3,4 of this year theres plenty of tidbits. then find last years posts for fall and you'll get more.

personally i like a little deeper water in the fall when i'm on a lake. the narrows on forest should still be good, maybe better without the traffic, and the deeper areas just outside them. don't forget the deep hole to your left just off the narrows when your going from lake 2 into lake 3 on the lake 2 end of the narrows, cover it well. theres a point comming out on lake three just before the bay leading to the public launch. fish that. then directly across the lake theres a nice flats area with deeper water surrounding it. fish that casting the edges. this is all info from years ago but i'm sure it's still good. bigger pike hang out in these areas too.

lures? i'm a spinnerbait fan myself. read the post on ''slow rolling spinners'', don't forget topwaters, jerkbaits and gliders.

what types of spinnerbaits? I have some bionics, but they haven't worked for me.

buchers slopmaster is my favorite. as is it's great through weeds and blade changes make it work where i need it. i really like the head shape. i strip them down and replace the original hair with angora rabbit wool/deer hair. but you can read the ''slow rolling spinners'' thread for some great info. about a month old now so back a page or two.
