      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 .

Sorry this reply is late, but thought I'd post a report anyways...

Fished below the dam for a while on Saturday and of course caught several sheephead on crawlers. I did see a nice Walleye caught near me, but just the one. It depends what your after, but you can definetly stay busy below the dam.

I fished in my boat above the dam on Sunday for a couple hours and did alright. I was jigging with a minnow while drifting down the channel of the river. I lost alot of minnows and caught alot of Rock bass, a really big sheephead, a few small Pike and one nice Northern measuring 37"s long. It wasn't "fast and furious", but it was enough to keep me jigging in the channel.

when you fish below the dam, do you stay up near where the powerplant empties, or do you stay down by the edge of the walkway on the east side? I was down there for a while too on saturday, but didn't have much luck at all. I had forgot my minnow bucket at home, and erls was out of crawlers. I had a couple of REALLY nice strike using a rainy river smithwick, but i missed the hookset both times.

(btw i was the guy wading out in the middle of the river downstream of the dam on sat. i was out there from about 11:00 -2:00)

-thanks for the reply

I almost always fish on the east side around the last 1/4 of the walkway. The water comes up on to a shelf in that area and is usually a productive area to fish.

I was fishing down there a little later in the day than you. I think I started fishing around 6:30pm-7:00pm?

I tried fishing off the island too, but didn't do too much there. Walmart has crawlers too, and they are cheaper than at Erls.

I really wish someone would start carrying some bigger sucker minnows in town. The sucker minnows at Erls are a joke! $4.00 for a dozen really small sucker minnows!!!
