      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 .

We will be close to Sand Bay. With the price of fuel not wanting to travel a far distance. Is there a pattern on the bay that seems to still be getting a fish or two? Early morning, late evening,humps, breaklines?? Thanks Phil

Its been a long time since I have fished Sand Bay. However, I do know of some people who have been doing fairly well on the reefs. Look to 28-34 feet of water for most of the walleyes to come from. They will be hitting crawlers and a jig and a minnow combination.

Bill,

Have you had any luck with the new gulp alive minnows. If so, what size and color. Do you stock them.

I am trying the new gulp alive minnows as we speak. I only have two trips with them under my belt and I must say that I am impressed. Day one produced some nice fish on them, however on day two the walleyes wanted crawlers...there isn't much you can do about that.

We do stock them too. However, the ones that we had in stock were on the shelves for a total of two days before they sold out. I am in the process of ordering more in...hopefully we will have them by this weekend.

Take Care and Good Luck Fishing!

THEY ARE REALLY YELLOW, NOT SURE IS I HAVE SAW MORE BEAUTIFUL CRAPPIES, WE'VE CAUGHT THEM UP TO 2LBS 10OZ., IN RAINY, BUT NOT WITH THESE BRIGHT YELLOW COLORS.

Thanks for the info. Were the crappies mixed in with the walleyes? confused.gif I've managed to catch a few crappies over the years, but it has all been by accident when fishing for northerns or walleyes.

HI CLK,

THERE ARE GETTING TO BE ALOT OF CRAPPIES IN SAND BAY & YES YOU DO CATCH THEM MIXED IN WITH THE WALLEYES., HOWEVER WHEN YOUR FISHING WALLEYES, YOU MOST LIKELY ARE FISHING ON THE BOTTOM....CRAPPIES SUSPEND...AND ALWAYS FEED UPWARD. CRAPPIES CAUGHT ON THE BOTTOM ARE SMALL MOST OF THE TIME. THE 2LB. CRAPPIES WE CAUGHT AND I TALKED ABOUT IN THE PREVIOUS POST WERE NOT CAUGHT IN SAND BAY, HOWEVER THERE ARE LOTS OF 2LB CRAPPIES IN SAND BAY.

SINCERELY,

FISHMEISTER
