      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 was wondering what were some methods people use for catching walleyes during the day?!

I would look for deep water transitions, bottom of dropoffs, hole hoping on deep water basins, outside corners, etc. Basically it depends on the lake and amount of structure, but use what you already know and flip it. What I mean by that is, let say you set up for an evening bite you usually fish shallow points, bottle necks, anything that leads to shallow feeding areas! Now just think of where they might be coming from before they hit the shallows. Basically fish deeper holes adjacent from you shallow fishing areas and stay mobile because they more than likely will be roaming in the area!

i overlooked that thought. for walleyes i like to fish in about 18 fow a lot. i have pretty good luck at night in that depth. but like i said i overlooked that fishing deeper part. it makes sense because there trying to stay out of the light so they will be deeper! thanks for the tip!

Delta hunter gives some great advice. The only things I would add is to either chose to be mobile with a jigging spoon or something of the sort tipped with a minnow head or use tip-ups at varying depths with big baits.

TO has a great point that I forgot to mention! Fish aggresive during the day hole hoping with spoons, chubby Darters, etc. and hopefully you will run into some active fish!

So I've found some small ones during the day in 10' water and they seem to be active a little at night too. Where are the larger ones then? Deeper? I think we'll try something closer to 15' tonight and see if they are there. Good tactics in this post, thanks.
