      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 .

Water level is up a few inches and the new rainfall should keep it moving in a positive dirrection. Temp has been 51-54 degrees from bay to main lake.

Muskie and pike are feeding on the balls of baifish staging to spawn in a few weeks. Look for the pods of bait on steep breaks and the big fish are right on them. Here are some fish we boated recently casting and trolling for esox. The real big one cam from URL.

Brian,

If you don't mind helping out, what tactics are you using this time of year for those pike? What structure, depth, lure types, presentations are working best now?

Gregg,

We are fishing remaining green weeds and steep breaks with bait-fish on them. Baits of choice are bulldawgs and cranks...some nice slow gliders work good too. Some of the fish have also been caught trolling shallow running cranks over weeds and on the breaks too.

Hope this helps you out!

Sounds like some summer tactics I have been using. Have you slowed down the trolling speed, or are you still moving more than 2 mph? I'm guessing in-line spinners are not doing so well now.
