      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 .

Report from 11-3 and 4

Another beautiful weekend for fishing Lake of the Woods

or the Rainy River. Decent temperature and light winds

made the time in the boat very comfortable. Fish that were

VERY eager to bite made the days a lot of fun.

We had breakfast on Sunday at River Bend with a couple

of guys fishing the river with very good success, I told them

the lake ought to be just as good with no hassles from the

current. They both immediately said they would stay in the

River because that’s where the nicer fish would be. It made

me think about the hundreds of fishermen who come up

every year to fish in the Rainy River without any thought at

all about fishing in the lake.

There is no wrong answer (other than maybe to not fish).

The lake was beautiful and almost flat when we set out on

Saturday to far off hot spots. Tremendous fishing, with

keepers and slots biting on Jigs and frozen Shiners until

impending darkness had us heading for home. Not 100s

of fish but 25 or so in just a couple hours.

Sunday we considered the river and opted for the Morris

Point Gap and the fishing was as good there as the 24 mile

run we made on Saturday. Perch, Pike, Saugers and

Walleyes of various sizes kept us hopping till quitting time

at noon. The biggest Walleye I have had on all year came

unbuttoned just after we saw the flash of his tail at about

10 Sunday morning..

The fishing just keeps getting better and the number of

boats on the water keeps getting smaller. Go figure.

We just got back on Sunday after two GREAT days of fishing. Friday was windy, but productive, and Saturday was perfect. All in all my boat caught and released over 75 17-19 inch walleyes. Morris point seemed to the area to catch great numbers of fish, but the river seemed to produce the larger fish released 7 fish over 23 inches. Caught one big pig 29 inch 9 lbs 11 oz late Sat. afternoon. Love to post a picture but not sure now to.

On a side note we stayed at River Bend both nights and the people there are GREAT! Going to book a couple of ice fishing trips with them

What areas of the river have been the most productive? I would like to get out into Morris Gap but my boat is smaller and if it is windy I need a back up plan. Thanks!

      I checked a small lake in Arden Hills after work yesterday. Measured 3-4”. Should be ready for me to actually fish next time.
