      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 .

Made a promise to myself on this trip up to spend the time just searching the lake looking for different areas and not even fishing unless I saw at least 3 fish on my graph as the posters advise on this site.. On Friday the 17th I headed east from my place on sand bay and by the end of the day I had almost 60 miles on. Boy did I get my butt kicked. Didn't even drop a line for almost 2 hours. Did mark fish in some areas at 30 - 35',tried rigging with a crawler, leaches,jigging, pulling cranks and bottom bouncers, the walleyes won. There were areas that had boats on them but I never checked those areas out. The wind was a real treat, how come it seems like there never is spot that you can get out of the wind. Any day on the water is fun but I was really questioning if I knew how to fish. Saturday I decided to take my first trip into the Canadian side of Rainy. Marked fish in 30-35' again, but no luck. I found a 25' flat that had some fish on it. Started rigging and caught a few but it was pretty slow. Tried botom bouncing with a gold spinner and look out. Caught about 2 dozen walleyes in less than an hour, they were almost all 13-14". Decided to move even though the fish were hitting as I was in exploring mode. Found a reef that wasn't on my chip and tried spinners again. Caught 3 slots off my marker right away, 2-22" and a 24". Stayed here a little longer and caught some smaller ones also. On Sunday I went to Canada again trying different spots, found 2 25' flats that had lots of fish on them. Pulled spinners again, did get another 24" along with lots of 13-15". Riggin produced but it was slow. Split crawlers in half and still went thru about 6 dozen crawlers. The areas in Canada were only 6.5 miles from my place, which is nice. It was fun checking out so many areas and will explore more the next time up, 8 days and counting.
