      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 .

I caught this little piggy Friday morning. I was fishing early AM backwaters, targeting a bunch of buffalo and carp holding in the shallows, when this fish hit. At first I thought it was a big carp, especially after a couple of blazing runs that made my reel scream. I tried to my hardest to keep this fish out of the main channel, otherwise I knew I'd lose it. After about 15 minutes, I finally tired the fish enough to land it.

As I was fishing from shore, and by myself, I tried to keep the fish in the water as much as I could. I measured 38".

I had a few more strikes and runs similar to this after I caught this fish. I caught another fish of similar size, but after the strike, he spit the hook and lodged it in the dorsal fin area. Once the fish broke to the main channel I broke the line off, since I knew it would be near impossible to land it without hurting it.

Gonna be snoopin around the OT/Orwell this weekend. Looks like the water flow isn't too bad compared to the Minnesota or the Root. With all the rain down my way, I've been doing well finding agates but fishing isn't near as good as last fall at this time.

Deadhead...you wanna hook up?

Eh Dark, I did well at the Artificial Dam near Breck last night, 11 walleye on Bomber Long A's. Black/White and Blue/White paterns worked welll for me. Tried jigs but no go on them for me.

I also scored a 30" at Kidder Dam on the Red last night, Blue/White Swim Shad on a Chomper jig...she smoked thast baby...WOOF...gone. Nice fish, snapped a shot and slipped her back.

Found a interesting bite on another section of the Otter Tail near Whap too last night, nice 3-6# walleyes, all on Cranks....some on Bombers..some on #5 Hornets in Dace Blue. All hit hard, very active after dark.

Hope this helps bud, catch a Piggy for me.

I heard the Breck diversion riffle was producing some fish lately. It's a little far for me to drive just to catch a walleye though.

Dark, when were you thinking of fishing? I'm not sure what my plans are yet; my wife finally has a weekend off in 8 weeks. I also want to hit the trout pond before the season ends. I want to hit Orwell at least once more this fall... let me know.

Dark,

It was a pleasure to see you again. Glad to hear you found some fish. The smallies we caught down there on Friday evening were nice and chunky, too.

Let's be sure to keep our summer plan next year in the forefront.

MJ
