      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 .

Mayfly hatch along the Gunflint?

Recommended Posts

I'm mainly a Vermilion guy, and have heard that the mayflies are starting to hatch there. I'm hitting the BWCA off the Gunflint starting Friday. Does anyone know if the hatch is on yet, or if there are imminent signs?

I was out on Entry point 16 this past week and the mayflies have begun.

So when do the pests affect the bite? Right when they first show up or does it take a few days? I wonder how it affects lakes like Sag as 2 years ago I fished with mayflies visible and we couldn't catch any eaters but got some hawgs on the reefs. Any thoughts?

Im gonna be fishing sag on monday so i hope the mayflies dont affect the bite that much, although im mainly interested in the hawgs anyway. I will post a report on how it is when i get back.

I haven't experienced a hatch on a B-Dub lake but I did fish amongst them last weekend on Cass. The bite was not a problem. I had a great boat captain (Beef on here of Fathead Guide Service) and we caught tons of walleye. You could see the clouds of mayflies down below and there were sometimes walleye nearby which we caught. Othertimes the walleye were cruising around.

Just remember...the best time to go fishing is when you are on the water. How cliche!

Just an update: I went in on the Skipper/Portage access near Poplar Lake this past weekend. On Saturday there were mayflies abound and fish plucking them off of the surface.

Luckily I was hammering the northerns and smallies without a care for walleye.
