      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 .

Clough like Cough or Clough like Though

Okay. I'm going fishing in just a bit, but I need to settle a good natured argument between me and my wife first. Do you pronounce Clough (as in Clough Island) like Cough or is it Clough like Though? I say that it is like though and my wife says its like cough. Any ideas?

Thanks for the help guys. I won't be showing my wife this thread!

As far as what Steve said, I'd like to echo, "there are no fish around that island. Avoid it at all costs."

My father in law grew up in soup and pronounces it cluff too . Told me about a cop who shot a guy on Clough Ave but couldn't pronounce it correctly so he dragged him over to Weeks ave. Might have been pulling my leg a little grin.gif.

Cluff is how everyone pronounced it when I worked in the Duluth News Tribune newsroom. Of course, newspapers don't need to know how to say it — they just need to know how to spell it. grin.gif

I also know the island as Whitesides. I don't know where it originated but that what my grandfather and uncles used to call it.

I have always thought Whitesides was the island right next to Clough, just a little closer to the WI mainland, seperated by the shallow channel. Of course this year with the water so low it might be turning into one island.

Im sure it will have several other, not so good, names if they ever try to develope it and we have to help pay for it.

Whitesides is the old term for Clough. Used to be Whiteside's farm out there. The foundation, along with farm animal bones, used to be out there 30 years ago. Haven't set foot on it for awhile.

Is it any wonder people having trouble learning English.

Through

Dough

Cough

rough

bough

brought

drought

How the h e l l is anyone suppose to know how to pronounce something.

then explain to a child why all of these spellings essentially make the same sound, but you're suppose to memorize which is which:

to

too

two

shoe

true

view

through

few

beautiful

good luck kid. Take up math. 1 + 1 is always 2. Unless you're an accountant for enron.

you have POWER and Tower, but how do you pronounce Mower, slower, and grower...

I'm surprised kids don't just start crying when they're trying to learn this stuff.

Trekker- the foundation is still there. I was motoring through the backside of clough last year and saw what i thought was a beaver swimming across the little channel to the island but once i got a lil closer i saw it was a bear- i was able to get within about 15 feet so that i could take a pic with my phone but right as i got the camera function on someone called me and that was that- the bear caught traction and quickly made it to the bank, looked back at me, and took off into the woods. Thats one of my favorite experiences on the river, sorry to get off track, but this thread made me think of that. As for the island name- ive always been a lil curious as to the correct pronounciation as well... looks like the cluffs have it. Oh yeah, I did catch my one and only St. Louis River sheepshead near the island- what an ugly fish!

      Coming up next weekend to pull up the docks for the last time. Yup, my brother-in-laws folks sold their place on Frazer Bay. They owned the beautiful place just west of the public boat landing.They are in their 80's and are going to stay put at their place on Arizona. Been coming up for 20 years and now I won't have a free place to vacation at. Going to have to do some surfing for rentals I guess. Anyways, how has the walleye fishing been? Guess the weather will be quite a bit cooler next week.  Thanks for all the help over the years!

      Not at all a typical fall this year; more like a July lately. When the weather cools down next week fish will again start to set up in their cold weather locations. The last two weeks I have found fish (walleyes) along thick green cabbage and coontail edges,  deep basin transitions along steep breaks, and also suspended over deep water chasing forage.  One thing that remains constant during this time of year, regardless of temp., is that the days are getting shorter and the weeds are dying. Key in on the remaining green weeds, if your targeting shallow fish, and utilize your electronics to find schools of baitfish in deep water, either free roaming basins, or just off steep breaks. Lots of patterns going on right now that are putting fish in the boat. HAVE FUN!

      Tomorrow is the big day for duck hunters!! May you all get up early and find your spot filled with ducks.

        Fall is very nearby and things are going the way they should.  Fishing is good, it is too windy and the water is cooling down quickly.....On this weeks report and important bit on our very own Aquatic Invasive Species......Enjoy it!

      That's understandable given how you use the back reel technique.  I haven't used it the same way. Most of my trolling is done with baitcasters or levelwinds with counters.  The jigging part I hadn't considered before. "David, have you ever parred with a 7 iron?" "Well, Roy, it never occurred to me to even try."
