      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 .

Tips for first week in July

Recommended Posts

gus004

We are heading up for a week on a houseboat on June 30th and I am looking for a few tips. We will be targeting walleyes mostly with some dabbling into the smallmouth and northerns to fill the time. Any tips on baits would be appreciated. I am assuming leeches and crawlers for the walleyes. We have never been up there in the open water season, so the whole fishing experience will be new. I have a pretty good idea on location, just wondering on depths and baits. Are the standard smallmouth baits a good choice?

Gus,

We're going up for a houseboat trip ourselves. Going out this Sat!! I haven't been up that way since the late 80's. Really looking foward to it. I've been looking for some help on the fishing too. I'm figuring jigs and Lindy Rigs. I hope someone out there can help us.

I saw alot of mayfly larva in the water and then there are the pine flys which are hatching out over the next week or two. There has also been these black flying bugs that hang out on the boat and I think they came from the water as well. Try using a leech on a lindy rig or on a jig.

Thanks for the advice. I was wondering a little more about the smallmouth baits. I plan on buying a few inline spinners and some plastics, but not sure what colors or styles. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks for advice on the leeches and the bug hatches lately.

Last time I was up a few weeks ago I did very well on smallies using a texas rig with 4" Yamamoto Senko plastics. The dark green variety seemed to get more hits than others.
