      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 .

Wondering if anyone has been into Trout lately? I'm planning a weekend trip next weekend. We want to target walleyes but am wondering if trolling for lakers would be worth our time. Any general help would be appreciated.

Thanks for the report Cliff! I hope it keeps getting better...we'll be up there next Friday thru Sunday. Do you know how the laker fishing has been in Trout? Any specific spots to try? I thought about trying to find 65ft off a steep break and jigging as I don't have a good trolling set up.

Very good way to find trout!

They may also be moving up onto the 15' to 25' reefs in the evenings now if the water has cooled down enough.

Try trolling silver colored spoons with a minnow on 1 hook and a 1 oz. weight on the line over around 35' to 60' of water. If the spoon gets down to around 20' the lakers will not hesitate to come up to hit them if they are hungry.

Troll just fast enough to make the spoons wobble a little.

Any last minute reports Cliff? Crawlers or fatheads? Spinners, jigs, or lindys? What should we look for in trout? Thanks!

I have not heard any reports from Trout for a couple of weeks, sorry.

At this time of the year I would bring all three baits as the water temps are changing and the walleyes may also be moving.

The walleye bite has switched over to minnows almost exclusively for me on Vermilion.

Well, we covered most of the West side of Trout and couldn't find any walleyes. From what we heard from other campers, the walleyes were also absent from their catches as well. You can catch all the smallmouths you want though. We did manage one nice 4.5 lbs laker though. Was a good trip and we lucked out with the fire ban getting lifted.

That's what I usually go to trout for anyways. There are some beautiful smallies in that clear, cold deep lake!

Ive always found the majority of smallies in BIG trout to run on the smaller side. But you can almost catch one on every cast....if you know what to use..muah ha ha ha!
