      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 .

Hooksetta16, thanks for the response. Yes I am renting a sleeper for the weekend. I believe it is out on Library bar right now (I think that's what they call it). Has the pike fishing during the day been any good?

We've been getting AT LEAST 1 pike per trip out the last week or so. Fishing has been very good on Bemidji. I know the South end over and up Library are packed with crowds, you may want to travel away from the house to get into some better bites. The perch are getting hungry...... ;\)

hooksetta, glad you're having some luck on the Darters!

As for the flash bite, like hookseta said and I mention in the other Lake Bemidji post, shallower water = flash bite at low light. Get out a little deeper for consistent day action for walleyes and perch.

Thanks for the update Matt!! I was just thinking that mid-day just throw out a couple of tip-ups and sit in the fish and enjoy some cold ones. I wouldn't mind getting into some jumbos. I know I plan on fishing in the portable in the a.m. on Saturday and then just hang out during the day in the sleeper. Good luck you all that head out this weekend and maybe we will see you on the ice!

Got back from Lake Bemidji on Sunday night. Fishing was good on Saturday morning then shut off @ about noon and then we got 3 fish from 7 p.m. to 7:30 a.m. Sunday morning. We probably caught close to 50 fish between 3 people. We brought home 14 jumbo perch, 2 walleyes and 2 pout. It was non-stop action from 7 a.m. to noon on Saturday. There were times me and the finace couldn't keep 2 lines down. We were fishing in 45 feet water. Plan on coming up again in March to do some more perchin!!

mjgrose, yes we were on the north end of the lake. Lake travel was easy, not much snow and there is a nice road to lead you out to 45 feet of water. Ice was between 15"-17", everyone was driving out. You should have no problem getting out there. Good luck! I wish I could get up there in Feb. but the only time I will be there is on my way to Lake of the Woods. So March I will definetly be back!!!

Fished the west side on Friday night in 30 feet and got into a few 18" Walleye on a Buckshot rattler and a minnow head. Marked a lot on the flasher but it was tough to get them to take it. sure was fun when they did.

Any reports about grassy island? I know it was a hot spot the past few years. Just wondering if anyone has pulled up any that were good keepers.
