      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 .

Fishing Report for 3-1 to 3-3

We traveled 8 hours to get to URL. We had 6 fishermen in Kelly and Jon's "big shack". We caught 1 crappie(13") during the whole time. We caught and released maybe 20 walleyes. We had 3 cameras down and maybe saw 2 fish. We tried many different lures. Most fish were caught on a plain red hook with minnow (deadsticking). Two of the "young guys" got portable by digging holes and fishing them for 3 hours on Saturday with "no luck/no fish". Last year we caught our limit of crappies in less than 24 hours. A Texas Hold Em Poker game was enjoyed each day with some "Wild Turkey" and beers. We enjoyed the visits by Jon and Kelly. Say Kelly, your fishing license posted in our shack said that you weighed 190. We have a bet that is wrong. Please help settle our dispute. We always have a good time at URL in Kelly and Jon's shacks. Maybe next year will be better?

Say Jon, don't crappies normally move in schools? We caught our only crappie at about 9:15 a.m. on Sunday. Where were his friends?

190??? grin.gif Boy when the fish don't bite you guys have too much time to look at the details. grin.gif It seems like the more Jon takes over the heavy work the less he weighs and the more I gain.

Jonny-Are you implying that my group of fishermen were preoccuppied with the consumption of Wild Turkey and beer as we fished for the elusive URL crappie. We were paying attention to our bobbers and we were also jigging our Frostees and Demons often. We also had 3 cameras(Aqua-Vu) and 3 Vexilars working at all times. We actually didn't see many fish or mark many fish.

I guess we'll have to come up next year during the walleye season. Somebody told us that the very best time for crappies was the first of March. So, we thought we'd try it. Seriously, we always have fun ice fishing at URL with Jon and Kelly.

You guys are a fun group also, maybe some wild turkey got in the hole and then crappies got drunk and couldn't target their prey. grin.gif

Nothing worse then drunk crappies.

Very well could be, nomadic buggers are going into scout mode on us.

      Coming up next weekend to pull up the docks for the last time. Yup, my brother-in-laws folks sold their place on Frazer Bay. They owned the beautiful place just west of the public boat landing.They are in their 80's and are going to stay put at their place on Arizona. Been coming up for 20 years and now I won't have a free place to vacation at. Going to have to do some surfing for rentals I guess. Anyways, how has the walleye fishing been? Guess the weather will be quite a bit cooler next week.  Thanks for all the help over the years!

      Not at all a typical fall this year; more like a July lately. When the weather cools down next week fish will again start to set up in their cold weather locations. The last two weeks I have found fish (walleyes) along thick green cabbage and coontail edges,  deep basin transitions along steep breaks, and also suspended over deep water chasing forage.  One thing that remains constant during this time of year, regardless of temp., is that the days are getting shorter and the weeds are dying. Key in on the remaining green weeds, if your targeting shallow fish, and utilize your electronics to find schools of baitfish in deep water, either free roaming basins, or just off steep breaks. Lots of patterns going on right now that are putting fish in the boat. HAVE FUN!

      Tomorrow is the big day for duck hunters!! May you all get up early and find your spot filled with ducks.

        Fall is very nearby and things are going the way they should.  Fishing is good, it is too windy and the water is cooling down quickly.....On this weeks report and important bit on our very own Aquatic Invasive Species......Enjoy it!

      That's understandable given how you use the back reel technique.  I haven't used it the same way. Most of my trolling is done with baitcasters or levelwinds with counters.  The jigging part I hadn't considered before. "David, have you ever parred with a 7 iron?" "Well, Roy, it never occurred to me to even try."
