      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 .

Muskie:

If you don't want to be crowded, better not be fishing the Canadian side this week. There are boats everywhere. If you have to fish this week...smallmouth are in a tough bite right now. They transition to late summer locations and they are moving. You can catch a bunch of little ones along the usual structures but the larger fish are suspending, chasing baitfish off-shore, gone to deeper cooler water or buried in the weedbeds to avoid the fishing pressure. Spending the time patterning these fish can produce big catches but it isn't easy. Trying to find an area not raked by the tournament guys is almost impossible. With todays equipment, no place is unreachable to these guys. Within minutes they can be in almost untouched areas. The Seine and the Brule are loaded with anglers, Red Gut has walleye and bass anglers everywhere and any place south of Ami Point is insane. Maybe NW Bay or Parts of Ash and Patty Bays will be less busy. My honest suggestion...wait till the tournament is over.

i just got back from rainy, don't fish any of the places i did, we devoted 1 morning and 1 evening fishing smallies from black bay to blue berry island area and we did not catch 1 nice one! (biggest 14 incher) however we never left american waters. you would think rigging leeches and night crawlers on about 20 differnt reefs fishing walleyes we would have accidently picked up a few nice smallies but not one. and that was 3 boats in our group. i would recommend not wasting your time and just fish walleyes.

Just got back from Rainy, and we did pretty well for smallies. Caught a 4 pounder, a few over three and a bunch of 15-16"ers. Got some from Kempton channel, some from the Cranberry area. Used Grubs, spinnerbaits, Yum Dingers. I couldn't buy a fish on topwater, go figure. I thought that the smallie fishing was pretty good, but this was my first trip up there, and I may not know what it's like normally.
