      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 .

Late into the fishing season baitfish are very important. Bait fish are identified on the fish finder as giant gray or black masses on your screen. These clouds of baitfish though they may be high in the water column are still being marauded and eaten by walleyes, and though the bait fish are suspended often walleyes that relate to these bait fish, are hanging near the bottom.

The reason I posted this is I get guys asking how to approach these clouds, and I work the bottom still, this has proven most successfull for me versus looking suspended.

Will suspeneded work? I don't doubt it, but again this is my approach.

Keep Catchin'

Turk, I have also seen these baitballs in areas lakes. I first try to identify the baits( ciscos, shiners or perch). Then its match the Hatch with leadcore.

I was fishing the on the west side of catfish point this morning, the entire stretch was full of clouds of baitfish. Some spots the clouds would stretch for 20+ yards. Basically one cloud after another, never seen so many. Lots of fish surfacing, however not much action. I only caught two sheephead around 6:30am jigging, after that nada. I had a few follows and sniffs on the graph from the bottom, but no takers. I forgot the crawlers in the fridge, so I didn't get to try that. I have to say it was the slowest morning all summer in the catching department. Usually I land at least a half dozen sheepies, and a stray sauger or two...

The croix provided good entertainment nonetheless. I had a 4.5 foot sturgeon almost do the Fosbury flop into my boat heading home through the Hudson no wake zone. Never been that close to a live sturgeon before.
