      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 .

Lake of the Woods in October

Recommended Posts

Goosepride

Hello -

I'm planning a trip to Lake of the Woods in mid to late October. We'll be fishing LOW and the Rainy river. What would you suggest we use for bait and tackle, and what presentations seem to work best at that time? We'll be targeted walleyes.

It's my first trip up there so I'm looking for some helpful info!

Thanks in advance.

On the river I would jig a shiner with a jig or jiggin spoon like the Buckshot rattle spoon or JR Tackles Flasher spoon. Maybe even troll some cranks.

On the big lake cover ground til ya find them with cranks or spinner rigs. When ya get on them you could drift a jig or spoon but I think you will want to cover some water out there.

Heavy jigs and shiners for the river. I may go up myself around that time. It is a great time of the year for big fish.

I've been going up for quite a few years now in late Oct. Lots of boats and lots of good fish. Mostly fish the river, many times even go south of Baudette as well, use heavy jigs as mentioned before. Good Luck.

Thanks guys! I appreciate the tips. Keep them coming! I'm kind of hoping to catch a fish of a lifetime...but then again, who doesn't hope that!

It all depends on the timing Ive been up sevral years now and seem to hit the day before the big run begins. Still catch some fish just not as many as later when water temps drop those last couple of degrees to get the shiners running.
