      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 .

I've been catching greyling up the wazoo, tough to beat that plus sunny and highs in the 50's.

Ahhh man that's just wrong grin.gif I went out last night on Tulaby and caught a huge rock bass, HA HA. That was it. It pretty much sucked. But there are small lakes in the area that are hitting VERY well. Unfortunately they don't have landings. Ya gotta drag your boat to them. But they all are the same, basically small in size 100 acres or less, shallow (max of about 15 feet) and weedy. I won't give any names but those are the types of lakes that the waldo's are biting on now around my area.

I have mostly been chasing panfish with the kids. The sunnies and crappies are still very, very cooperative. Some dandies to boot. Last friday my two year old reeled in a solid 10 inch sunny and then a few minutes later a 12 inch crappie... I think I was more excited then him. Big Floyd Lake is a great lake for the kids....IMO

yeah, the pannies and bass are pounding. I caught a decent eater walleye in the river last night, but not one pike. I think the warmer water's got them slowed down. beetle spins were hitting pannies, and topwater cranks were just nailing the bass. Not much fish taking my flies lately, and with the tall grass near shore casting is getting to be a bugger...

Hey Zach -

Ahh Grayling - the Sunfish of the North. Those things bailed me out of some lousy salmon fishing a few times smile.gif Any Dolly Varden up where you're at? Loved those things...

I've been on a bass kick this year, partly because muskie fishing's been sort of poopy. Smallie fishing's been good, and the largemouths are still in the rushes and under the docks, so can flip and pitch for them, which is a hoot. Been fishing crappies and sunfish with the kids too. Crappies are starting to pile up suspended outside the weedbeds, so real easy to troll a tube jig through them and get bit. Fun time of year to fish.

What's interesting is I'm catching a lot of walleyes shallow still, either on suspending jerkbaits fishing smallies, or on jigworms fishing largemouths up in the cabbage. Usually sort of tail off on them about the end of june, then start picking them up again in late August - but I'm still catching them right now. Bet if a guy pulled bouncers along some of the weedlines, you'd do pretty well...

Cheers,

Rob Kimm

I'd even give grayling the edge in a fight with a sunny. They do put up a similar fight but the grayling have a size advantage and the fact that they're shaped like a torpedo gives them the edge.

We went out again last night and bared the cold weather for some good fishing, temps were in the upper 30's and a brisk wind got the hands pretty cold, reminded me of ice fishing.

Here's Gary with a nice one, we're fishing a small creek that comes from a deep gravel pit which is where these fish hang out. Notice the AK pipeline in the background.

Mine isn't quite as colorful but it makes up for it in length.

Great pics

Send some of the cheap oil from the pipeline in the picture our way. Bush's friends continue to rip us off!
