      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 .

Report 6/16-22 - Rainy & Windy Days

Recommended Posts

Gritz

Arrived at Rainy Lake early Saturday evening to beautiful weather. Got out a little bit late Saturday and landed one nice 22" walleye. Had an all day trip booked with Rainydaze for Sunday. Met RD at the ramp at 8:00 AM Sunday in the rain. The rain and lightning ran us off the lake after just 2 hours. We had one hard fighting 20" walleye to show for our efforts. Caught it on a minnow under a split-shot in about 24-feet. We decided to finish out the trip on Monday from 4-10 PM. The wind on the main lake made it unfishable Monday so we headed to the river just west of the bridge at Rainier. After 2 hours, no fish and tornado-like winds we called it a day. Decided to let the wind die down Tuesday and to resume the trip on Wednesday. Finally got in 4 hours of fishing Wednesday morning, limiting out on walleye by fishing Sand Bay humps in 22-feet to 28-feet with a crawler below a split-shot. We released a number of walleye over 17-inches and one fat 18-inch smallmouth. RD showed a lot of patience with me, taking 3 days to complete an 8-hour guide trip. We still battled 6-ft rollers on the main lake around 11:30 AM Wednesday. Thursday and Friday were much better weather wise. Found water surface temperatures during the week between 77-degrees Saturday evening in Black Bay to 56-degrees Wednesday afternoon around the north side of Dryweed Island. Best lure, by far, was a size 10 glass perch colored husky jerk. Thanks to RD for the education and to Bill at the 1-stop for all of their help.

Hey Buddy!

It was great having you. Weather of course was a bit sketchy, but oh well! Not worth a lightning strike I guess huh! Glad we were able to get your trip in and land some nice eyes! Give me a shout next time your up! I'll be sure to put on my wind jacket! Ha! Take care and Good Fishing! Hey send me your email address again to mr_rainy1@yahoo.com I think you should give Ice fishing a try! At least we'll be able to get into the heated house then.

RD
