      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 .

I have some buddies coming up this weekend to do a one day fishing/camping trip...were planning on hitting Fish Lake near Duluth. This past summer we slayed the crappies, but very few eyes. Any news on the "Walter" bite?" Are the crappies spawning, and getting active. Does anyone know about the water level...has to get higher after these last few storms? Thanks alot for any info...much appreciated.

As usual this time of year, there should be some Crappies staging in the deep water along the north shore.

While your hunting for eyes, you might find better crappies in in 8-10' close to weeds. 1/16th oz jigs and crappie minnows in that deep water and shallower water for crappies.

For eyes I'd stick to shorelines and islands or flats along those shores. A lot of the weeds will be knocked down but theres still some, keep an eye out for those areas. Troll a minnow harness(spinner) in your search then switch up to 1/4 oz jigs once you locate them.

I got one that was 26 and a half inches this week that was tagged #f181767...talk about catch and release working, about 2-3 hours later fishing the same spot I caught the same fish again. Hopefully no one returns her tag. Water is still real low even with the rain.

Weather conditions were great this weekend for some great camping. We mostly stayed on the north shore of the lake. Able to catch an alright amount of crappies in deep deep water(20+ feet)...catch a couple, move again, catch a couple more-that was our pattern. Not many eyes to count. We did catch a 21" pike, great eater. Thanks for the tips...I might try a different lake this weekend-maybe up Hwy 53 north??

evinrudespeed, thanks for reporting back. Not many eyes on that North shore but the crappies are there. Once in a while you tie into a big Pike thats out targeting those crappies.

      I resisted converting to braided lines. I liked my TrileneXL. Then, one day about four years ago I decided to spool up with fireline and at first I didn't think I could really feel much difference. Skeptical me, I always held on to that spool loaded with my trusty Trilene. One day I decided to put that mono back on and immediately could feel the difference. It felt like I was fishing with a rubber band. I went back to braided and haven't looked back.

      Last night a flock of geese buzzed the house and Finn went nuts! I think he wants to get out hunting as much as I do.

      Nice video Curt.  Looks like you are having way too much fun out there. Enjoy the time on the water.

      I will probably go out to my parents farm and set up in a pasture. The cattle have it mowed down pretty good. The geese seem tp pile in there pretty good. I won't hit it to hard, just get out a few times and hopefully get my son to get his first goose...

      I have really gone to line Gamma brand line. It is a copolymer. Soft like mono but abrasive resistant as well. I prefer it in #6 for game fish and #4 for panfish.... If I can't find it I fall back to trilene in XL.......
