      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 been up for opener the last two years and noticed a shallow nightime feeding

frenzy, but the lake seems to turn into the dead sea during the day; granted i dont

know the lake and my fellow resorters are from iowa and are thrilled with prospect

of frying up rock bass and bullheads, but could someone please help me with

general daytime depths, structure, feeding patterns ect. I am not asking for gps,

names, or places, just freindly advice. also any helpful information stays in the

lake, i pinch my hooks and use a catch and release net. thanks

Be looking for some humps around 15 to 18 feet of water. I know that might seem alittle deep but early in the year it seems to work alright. All those fish that are up shallow at night move out to breaks and a place to suspend and find baitfish so that could be a key place to look at the nearest break.

double H,

thank you for your reply. apparently you are the only one who has bagged

an eye during the day. I have fished the break by trolling crank and swim bait

but only ended up with slimers, are the eyes hunkered on the bottom and not as aggressive as they are at night?

don't neglect the weeds either. walleyes are typically low-light predators...during the high sun daylight they'll either move to deeper darker climes, or the shade. Drake's got good advice, and I know he can catch 'eyes in the daytime. you could try jiggin the humps or trolling a lindy rig to find the active 'eyes. they may indeed be hunkered on the bottom edge.

There are eyes in those weeds, just ask team otter. The way I fish the weeds is , using crawlers I use a 4 foot snell with a couple of split shot right at 4 ft. and retreive just fast enough to tick the weeds. Same goes for using a hot in tot or walleye diver, slow is the answer. Fish right over the top of the weeds, those eyes are hiding in the pockets or holes in the weed bed.

Rookie if you could give me your email address I could help you out alittle more! Also like "efgh" said try using those crawlers and stick to 3 or 4 inch snells alot of those breaks are steep and its hard with a swimbait or crankbait to stay down a foot or 2 off the bottom but if you use those 3 to 4 foot snells
