      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 .

Just signed as new member. Have read some interesting things from all of you. Didn't think I'd read anything about a guy proposing tho!!!!

Anyway, coming to rainy lake the last week of August. Taking a houseboat out of Rainy Lake Houseboats with a few buddies and their sons. Need some info on where you think would be good fishing (walleye, smallies, crappies)and what baits have been working now this late in the summer. Grateful with any help!!!

Hi Jigger,

Welcome to the Rainy Lake forum! LEECHES, CRAWLERS AND SHINERS will all be turning fish for you. Deep bite is to be had off edges of the reefs or on top depending on prevailing winds? Shallow weed walleyes or current relating fish are also snapping pretty good! This is god's country up here! Hope you have an enjoyable trip! Good Fishing!

Jigger2:

Just got back from our houseboat trip on Sunday. We parked in the area of Blueberry Island and then fished the reefs nearby. We caught walleye mainly using BB and crawler harnesses/spinners but also caught them using minnows. Don't be afraid to go deeper on those reef edges at times (40+). We picked up a few smallies on the reefs too, nothing big. We were out mornings and evenings and did well. The afternoons we pulled kids tubing and skiing. Good luck.

This will be my first houseboat trip. Is it all it's cracked up to be? I've seen several references to Blueberry Island so that may be a stopping point for us also. Glad to hear BB are working as that is what I am used to using on the Missouri Lake system.
