      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 .

Pout are great if prepared right, and the fight on the biguns is fun as well. I recomend LOW.

Lakers are a closely guarded secret wink Havving never successfully iced one, I will deffer to others here. There is some good information to be had if you look around for it.

Tuli'es, a few of the bigger lakes around have em. Millacs used to be the go to, but I would head for BSL. Just dont tell the locals you are not from around there. They can get a little restless/protective about thier lake. sick

eel pout- lake of the woods or leech lake at night, like Jiggin said. Anything you've got that is fishy, some smelt, shiners, sucker heads, whatever. Setlines or'll see some action.

tullies- try some deeper lakes where they exist. Ten Mile, Mille Lacs, Leech, Lake of the Woods. A flashing dropper rig works well.

lake trout- check out the trout species forum. There is a list of lake trout lakes and plenty of people that can help you.

You could probably try to find an extreme northern minnesota lake that has all three. The three species you mentioned are a fish community that inhabits some deepwater canadian shield lakes. Could make for a quite a trip!
