      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 .

Opener

The outlook on opener looks good, bait supplies seem to be good around the Grand Rapids, Deer River area and the folks fishing panfish are coming in with good reports. After all the dump as we are all saying about the new law on the AIS stickers, I think it’s time to put that behind and get some fishing in!

I'm heading to Winnie for the first time ever on opener. From what I've read jig and a minnow in 15-3 feet. Are there any particular areas better than others with the current water temps? I'm curious about all the jumbo perch I've read about as well. Best of luck to everyone!

If you are fishing in 15-30 ft you will not be bothered by other boats!!! It is going to be a shallow bite 5-10 feet. 1/4- 1/16 th ounce jig with a shiner minnow on it will be fished by 90% of the people on the lake. Plenty of perch mixed in with the walleyes. North and West shores, HighBanks, The Gap are all good opener spots. Keep movin til you get bit!!!

Be Safe!

If you get into the crowds, watch what they are doing and do THE SAME THING! Most popular spots will have a crowd that will drift through the productive spots, get out of the herd and motor AROUND the outside of the herd. Don't be the guy that trolls against trafic or, god forbid, drop an anchor in the middle of the traffic pattern and fan cast bobbers.

Jig and minnow is always a good option for Winni. Perch pattern is a good start as well as green. Don't be shy about jigging because they like to hit a moving jig. 4' to 15' unless it is calm. Rocks, gravel or weeds if you can find them.
