      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 .

Im guessing the eyes will be deep by then, northerns along steep drop rocks ledgs and weedlines near deeper water?

Ive been up in May and June mostly. One year we came up Labor day weekend and could only find fish in 30+fow. I would assume late Aug would be the same pattern.

Wade,

Most years late august you will find fish deep on the reefs, unless there is a really early cool down in water temps. I have been up around Labor day several times and usually take the first couple hours to drive around a milk-run of spots and graph them. Then go back and fish the ones that I see fish on, and always start with those that i saw fish suspended off the bottom of (usually active fish).

That time of year its either heavy lindy rigs or backtrolling 3-4oz. bottom bouncers and spinner rigs. Bait can be any one of the 3, leeches, crawlers and minnows, the fish will tell you what they want and, it may vary from spot to spot.

You may also want to consider heading over the portage and fishing the east end of Rainy that time of year, the fishing can be really awesome on the reefs.
