      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

I'm guessing most are not out today, except one guy I know that is on the river chasing smallies, so I'll post now.

Saturday: I had a couple hours so I played around with the trolling set-up, making notes of the line counter reel and how "x" lure runs with "x" amount of line out, etc. No fish though.

Sunday: Was planning on 'tonka, but common sense prevailed.... it's nasty out. Not worth it to me, especially with the buoys being pulled.

What I've heard thus far was "slow" at best, any reports?

Went by the three primary east metro lakes, nobody out on any of them sunday! Chased quackers with hugobox instead of fishing.

i fished all day on Sunday (Tonka) right thru the blizzard and could hardly see for awhile, fish were moving right after the blizzard, would go around about 5xs on figure 8s but would not hit.. fished friday 6am to 7pm, 1 lost fish, 1 follow.. fished saturday 8am to 7pm, 1 lost fish, 0 follows..tough weekend... hardly caught a pike.. saw some walleye guys really nailing walleys in deeper water.. very minimal baitfish seen in the past 3 days...i am guessing they are hugging the bottom or burried in remaining weeds

Was out on Tonka Saturday, moved one fish, that was it, nothing in the boat. Were alot of guys out there chucking, wondering how anyone else did on Tonka this weekend??? I heard WBL was pretty hot on Friday.

Got a 42" on a Hellhound on Saturday. It was the only fish we saw for 4 hours of fishing.

Sounds like after the blizzard was the deal. I takes "reel men" to fish in yesterday conditions. I am humbled.

Fished western WI lakes Friday and Saturday. One little guy under 30" on jigs Friday. No other follows. Saturday moved two respectable fish, but wouldn't eat. Couldn't get them turned in the 8's either.

I'm surprised one fish didn't eat the HellHound. That fish was on fire a ways out. Pushing water and curling up like it was about to lunge, but no dice...made the heart palpitate though.
