      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 .

Myself and 7 of my friends are going to be trying to fish the U.S. side of the lake for the first time this weekend. We have no locator and two small aluminum boats. We are really looking for any advice on how to catch any type of fish. If anybody could help us out on areas that usually produce or baits that may work well for us it would be greatly appreciated.

Hey Jammin,

I'd highly suggest picking up some portable electronics at the bare minimum if you are planning on fishing walleye. The fish will be migrating out to the reefs. Finding the reefs will be tough without them, and pinpointing fish will be a trial and error method at best. You'll still be able to pick up some weed walleye or some shoreline fish, but with the warm temps the fish will be heading deeper if there isn't any current present. Good Fishing!

All the advice so far has been great! Thank You! We're going to pick up some rental electronics but we're still wondering what's working best for baits and where the fish will be in comparison to the shore and the reefs and how deep to fish. Like I said we're beginners so any info. will help us tremendously!!

Welcome Jammin' grin.gif

Look for the fish in 20-30' of water on the shoreline breaklines and the reefs. A jig in a minnow is a good way to work 'em. With the electronics that the houseboats will give you, work the 20-30' area with spinners trolled at about 1 mph. This will help you cover ground, and once found you can fish them with a jig/minnow or a lindy rig. Blueberry Island area will be good, as will waters farther west around cranberry island. Think reefs! I would definately have minnows with, and also a variety of leeches and crawler...or if you are on a budget go with one or the other of crawlers or leeches.
