      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 .

Pine Island report 3/18-3/19

Started out with a half day on Thursday in 28' of water. It was a tough bite. The fish were totally finicky. We were in a house that had produced 25 fish the day before. Started at 1130am and finally moved to 22' at 330p. This depth didn't produce anything so moved to 17' at 400pm and managed several eyes (13-15") for the day.<BR>Friday: Caught several nice sauger out deep, one at 17" with most going around 14-14". Went back shallow 17' again at 400pm and the fish were very aggressive. Managed to ice a 17", 18" and a nice 19" with the rest running at the 14" length.<P>By downsizing to Glow Green Crappie jigs and the smallest minnows we could find we were able to fill out over two days. Large jigs did not produce for us, and it seemed as though it actually spooked the fish. Many would chase, but shy away once they got a good look. We went throught every type and color of jig in the box trying to figure something out. It was definitley one of the toughest bites we had come across this year in four trips.<P>Had a chance to run into CharterBoss at Riverbend on Friday night and listen to some of his War Stories. It was a great social hour (actually 3 hours). We discussed lots of aspects of LOW and I learned a lot from a guy who has spent a conisiderable amount of time on the water there since 1991. Many opinions and theories were discussed however due to the late hour and the extent of the cold ones we tabled any further discusssion until we get back up next week. CharterBoss, thanks for an enjoyable night.<P>Once again the guys at Riverbend did a super job, Kent and Richard always great to see you guys. They are busy moving houses and trying to stay away from the slush holes that starting to present some problems. The weather last night got pretty cool so things were able to firm up again. They are forecasting that for a couple of more days which will be welcome as the meltdown was in full swing on Friday. Hope those who were out had a good time and found some fish. Good luck and hang on. Bill

NewYankee: Sure hoping the weather holds for just a few more days though. As you know lots of snow on the lake and a big meltdown will turn it into lots and lots of water on top.<P>Too bad you can't make one more run too. Even though the bite was tough it is still worth the drive to this great fishery and we had a great fish fry on Friday night at Riverbend. Take care, talk again soon. Bill

bturck - Sounds like you had pretty good fishing late afternoon, we had a so so morning bite on Friday and a terrible afternoon, I caught two fish jigging and the rest were on set lines with Blue Demons and Green, Orange & Red glow jigs 2" off the bottom. We were in 24' of water and did not have an option of moving because of the placement of houses at Border View. Saturday morning was pretty good but the bite died around noon and we packed up and headed for home. The kid did great fishing and of course he out fished the old man, he did manage to get a little wet playing outside on Friday afternoon and lost a boot for a little bit but we managed. I wanted to get over and meet you on Friday but the kid was bushed by 7:00, thanks again for the post on the accomodations and I look forward to your future posts and reply's.<P>lakertaker
