      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 .

Anybody catching lakers at night either out on the big lake or on other lakes or do they shut down when the sun is below the horizon?

I have often wondered about this myself.

I have fished up until shortly after dark on both Lake Superior and Lake Nipigon. Bear in mind that in June it stays light up here till 10:30 or 11:00 PM.

I remember on Lake Nipigon catching them till way after dark but we were nailin 'em in that golden hour before full dark that time also.

I haven't fished them enough after dark to come to any firm conclusions.

Like a lot of guys I fish walleye's after dark quite a bit but even so I can show you a couple of lakes hereabouts that the walleyes just shut down after dark.

During the ice season I have caught lakers after dark on glow jigs and back in the 90's we used to catch lakers along the north shore before it got light out.

My ice fishing experience action always slowed down toward dark and than after. Catch some after dark,yes but very few in many years.

Summer may be different with visibilty better in the summer for trout.Snow would make it one dark place for lakers in the winter. Full moon anyone in the summer?

I saw something a few years ago on WDSE where some divers went poking around old dock pilings and what not at night (obviously kinda close to shore). They were shooting a lot of video showing Lake Trout rummaging around these things. No real scale to compare with but some of the fish were a lot bigger than the eater-sized that were there too. Couldn't tell you time of year either other than it wasn't winter (no snow on the shore shots, etc.).

Aaah, the good old days. Remember when you could catch fish off the North Shore! frown

I've caught a few on accident on inland lakes fishing for walleyes on the first walkable ice. Sometimes they hit after the sun goes down.
