      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 .

Fished the north shore two weeks ago.  I was a ways away from everyone else which I didn't know was good or bad thing.  We set up the house in 19 feet and put two tip ups out.  We were getting a later start then I had hoped and instantly had a flag and it was a 1.5 pound snake.  We reset and got the house going and dropped down the cameras and jigged our hearts out.  We had over a dozen walleyes come flying into our jigs and at one time we had three looking at our jigs.  We didn't get one bite.  We tried about 6-8 different jigs and all seemed to work on bringing in the fish but nothing worked at getting them to commit.  About dark they quit coming in and we tried for at least two hours after dark.  We had only two people and the girlfriend doesn't like running two rods so we did the tip ups but I don't know if we would have had a dead stick down if they would have bitten or not.  Most were 1.5-2 pounds but one was a huge pig that came through.  Buddy was set up 23' and he got 3 or 4 little 10" eyes on spoons.  Maybe I was too shallow and they were feeding before coming up to us?  We did see a bunch of little perch right away then they disapeared after an hour or so.  I used GPS last spring about this time of the year on where we set up because I got 4 eyes in the same hole hole hopping last year.  I'm getting frustrated as heck because we've tried a ton for walleyes and my fish house has yet to catch one.

Thank for the reply.  I have been out 6 or 7 times to different lakes that I normally don't have a hard time catching a limit, but so far i have caught 2 walleyes.

Take it with a grain of salt I seem to be a panfisherman instead of a walleye fisherman.  I've been really frustrated out on the ice this year.  Maybe this weekend I can try and catch one but I'm not holding my breath.

      use caution on the lakes in southern mn  there is a lot of lakes that have one or 2 spots of open water.  with that said where ive fished there has been a solid 5-6 inches as of yesterday  clear, cedar.cannon,elysian, circle.  i would use a spud bar to check if your going where people havent gone yet.

      Gotta tell ya. I've been doing a lot of thinking about those dusk into the evening crappie bites under the ice lately.

      Call search and rescue cause someone will go in on blue! It’s bad news out there. Baxter is the only lake around you would catch me on and just stay to away from the west side of the lake.
