      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 .

Ely,Babbit ,Vermillion area report

Spent all last week fishing hard. The Walleye were hittin good on trolling with crawler rigs and at times leeches on a slip bobber. Smallie action was hit or miss, crappies did not cooperate at all..hundreds on graph and no action on Birch lake..odd...Musky action was good on Vermillion. Went out one day only for them and had 4 follows and one in the boat at 41 inches. Not bad for never being on Vermillion before. Other than the Musky guide in the boat that kept cuttin us off at every turn..what a jerk,,I undertand he is gettin paid but what part of "public water' doesn't he get?

We kept our distance and went beyond beibng polite..we were even in that bay first! As we get older we get smarter..some years ago he would have been dodging treble hooks...Not worth is tho. We just moved to a different area. Next couple days we managed to slam a pile of good sized blue gills, the kids had blast with those

I was on Birch all week. Fishing was awful. Couldn't get much of anything to bite except the sunnies and small perch. I was able to wrangle a nice little piggy the first night just as the sun was going down. Fish released successfully.

Fish the bays with good vegetation..even better if you can find areas with vegetation and large rocks . They really like the cover and shaed of the weeds and big rocks under water. Buchertails and buck tails seemed to work fine. Any noisy top water seemed to work as well. The late evening bite seemed to be the best with red or orange being the color of choice.
