      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 .

Labor Day Week on Knife. Reports, Tips, Tricks or Tactics...

Recommended Posts

Casaloma

Hi every one. I'm hoping some of you have insight into the method of taking Lakers from Knife Lk. in the BW. Currently I am bringing walleye gear & adding weight ( no jokes please grin.gif ), flutter spoons, Superior casting spoons, & frozen Ciscoes.

Can anyone help me augment my tackle or help me narrow down my areas to search etc. Any & all info. would be helpful. I am open to email suggestions also for those who prefer that, finsnfriends@hotmail.com

Thanks! -CLoma

Randy, you up for the same bet as last year? First beverage at pool league to the man with the biggest Laker between now & then??

Surface Tension

I'd bring 2 oz bucktail jigs for vertical or slow drift fishing. Because your paddling and because you need to get deep with just weight I'd pick some spoons that don't need much speed to make them work like Suttons and Finns. With the spoons bring up to 3 oz beaded chain or bottom bouncers. Drag a slit bottom with those and jig the saddles, bars and steep walls.

I think I'd start looking in 50' of water then start getting deeper into 70'.

You might also want to consider a snap weight system...the same as we use on the Great Lakes. It consists of a snap device that clips on your line, ahead of the lure (try it 10 to 20 feet ahead of the lure, make sure you get the line behind the post so it doesn't slip off). You can then attach a weight to the snap swivel that hangs off the unit. Check Sportsman's Warehouse for a great selection of weights. Get a couple of each weight from 1 to 5 or 6 ounces (I know, it's a lot of weight to carry). But you will now have a set of "poor man's downriggers" for about $30 which work great with spoons, stickbaits, and some crankbaits. When you crank in the fish, you will need to stop as the weight comes in and unsnap it from your line. One guy fishing alone can easily do this. Just check out the snap weight kits (about $22) and augment with extra weights...you'll understand exactly how they work. I would suggest a 3 or 4 ounce weight about 15 feet ahead of a standard stick style Rapala. You'll have to work out what colors to bring. Weight will be dependent upon drift/troll speed and the depth you desire. You might also consider a heavier weight rod than a typical walleye rod for those 3-5 ounce weights. Good luck!
