      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 .

What did I do wrong??

I just got back from three days on Rainy. My wife's grandmother has a year-round place on the west side (Sand Bay near the public beach) so I don't get too far east on the lake. I had a hard time finding or catching fish this year. Is there something different going on this year?

I have had good luck in the past jig fishing some deep drops and pulling plugs on windy shores. Weather was probably too nice for fishing, but the kids had fun on the beach. I tried some mid-lake humps, flats, and other areas I had not fished before searching for some active fish. I'm stumped and looking for clues from people that might have done better than I did. My guess is that the combination of bright skies, little wind, and a full moon might have made the fish inactive during daylight and that I should have tried even deeper. I don't like fishing over 35' as it's hard to feel the lure/bottom.

Still a good time up north and got to try some new areas. Blueberries were pretty much done on the west end and it seemed dry on the islands we normally pick. Wild raspberries were abundant, however.

HI R.L.F.,

YOU MAY HAVE DONE NOTHING WRONG, I WASN'T IN THE BOAT FISHING WITH YOU, HOWEVER THE LAST WEEK FISHING HAS SLOWED, NORMALLY RIGHT NOW FISHING IS THE BEST, HOWEVER WE DON'T NORMALLY SEE EVERYDAY AT 90+ DEGREES THIS TIME OF THE YEAR. I HAVE TALKED TO NUMEROUS PEOPLE WHO HAVE DONE POOR THIS PAST WEEK. WHEN AT WORK I WAS EXPLAINING TO 1 OF MY EMPLOYEES (WHO DID TERRIBLE OVER THE WEEKEND) THAT WEIRD AS IT MAY SEEM THE WALLEYES MAY HAVE WENT SHALLOW...ABOUT 2 HOURS AFTER OUR CONVERSATION SOMEONE WALKED IN & SAID WE JUST POUNDED THEM YESTERDAY...I SAID WERE YOU SHALLOW, THEY SAID YEA 12 FEET. THAT IS THE CHALLENGE FISHING RAINY, SOME TIMES THE GOOD LORD CHANGES THE WEATHER ON US, SO THATS WHEN YOU HAVE TO GO "OUTSIDE THE BOX" & SAY WHERE DID THEY GO & START LOOK LOOKING...USING THAT EVER SO IMPORTANT GRAPH.

SINCERELY,

FISHMEISTER
