      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 .

Great Bassin Story and Walleye Report!

Recommended Posts

Sportland_Bait

It has been another great week here in the northwoods. We sure had some memorable trips. The big bass fishing continues to be just awesome. We had a couple of youngsters boat their all time bests. It started out with an epic battle between a young man and a 20 inch largemouth. As his brother cheered him on he kept the rod high while the 20 incher made run after run. Pretty soon the fish tired and conceded victory. After a photo she was released to swim again. Ten minutes later the other sibling dug into his bag of tricks. He decided to piggyback 2 minnows on the same jig. As soon as the bait hit the water, Wham! The battle was on. After a few minutes the fish was in the boat. He had outdone his brother with a 21 incher. I think it was a sibling rivalry at its best. Both kids were very happy and were able to go home with a tremendous story. This summer has been filled with days like these for our guide boats. The bass fishing has been going strong lately but we are starting to see the walleye action getting a little better. We are still fishing weedlines with redtail chubs. It has been a variety when fishing close to the weeds, walleyes, bass, and pike. Both Lindy rigs or jigs have worked well. Schools will be opening up before we know it so be sure to get the kids out on the water one more time before the end of summer. It is well worth it.

P.S. The walleye action has been going quite well up on the Whitefish chain in 16-20 feet.

We have been concentrating on the west end of the chain. Lower Hay, Upper, and middle is where we have had the best success. Weedlines of humps and points seem to be holding the most fish.

Jason, thanks for the update...

I agree the bass fishing has been really good for the past few weeks. The past several days when it was cloudy they were really going after it. I have also picked up 5 nice walleyes this week while bass fishing... The smallest was 19 inches and the largest 25 inches. So I agree the walleyes bite is picking up..

Weedlines in 8 to 15 feet of water is the location....

Fall fishing is just around the corner and should really be good as the fish start to develop eggs...

Jason,

Thanks for the hints, They are much appreciated. I will try to find those elusive eye's that I can't seem to find. I am still waiting to catch my first eye on the chain. I know that donesn't say much for my skill in catching those fish. Have a great week. Thanks, Mike
