      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 .

Rookie June 4,5,6

Just wondering if any of you guys can steer an open water LOW rookie in the right direction on where to fish on LOW or Rainy River. I'm taking about 7 guys up with me and i'm not too experienced with open water up there. Best live bait? Presentation? Depth? I only have a 16ft. boat so any wind may keep us within Pine Island or the River. We,re staying at Adrians on Wheeler's Point just to give you guys a reference point. I fished out there(the protected bay)last fall, and even here it can get a little rough for my modest boat. We did catch quit a few jumbo perch and some small walleye's and sauger's here in about 8ft. of water on fatheads. However, I have no exp. on early open water up here, is it too late for any sort of bite on the river? Any advice will be helpful.<P><BR>AJWALLEYE

Also, is there EVER a nightbite on LOW or the Rainy for walleyes or saugers or is it always pretty slow?<P>AJWALLEYE

AJ, I think I'd start at the green buoy just outside the Gap and work my way west toward Morris Point. As long as you are staying at Adrian's, check with Brian or Cory as to what bait and rigs are working best. They want you to catch fish, so they'll give you the right scoop.... Your boat should work OK, you'll see lots of boat your size out there, and the resorts rent that same size too. If you have a Marine radio, defintly bring it along. You can listen to the charters and others to see what their doing....Kaz

If the wind is ok, your best bet is to watch the charters and stay near them.. The gap is a good spot.<P>Night time is very good fishing on LOW..nice and quiet, no bugs, pretty skyline but the catching is almost nonexistant... LOW is one of the few lakes that the Eyes dont eat at night.. go figure..<P>Hope you fellas have a good time.. ... thats what it is all about... <P>------------------<BR><A HREF="http://wiskersguidingservice.com" TARGET=_blank>Wiskers Guiding Service</A><BR>Red River, Red Lake River & Minnesota River,for Channel Cats, Flatheads & Walleyes<BR>Crookston, MN<BR> wiskers@gra.midco.net<P>218-280-0442

Kaz is steering you right, there should be a good bite going in the shallows from the gap all the way west along that south shore of Traverse, I kind of favor the Morris and Zippel areas myself. The river has year around resident fish that are catchable. If it's really windy you can stay on the river and still fish with confidence that the fish are in there too.<P>The first few weeks of June are probably the easiest time of the openwater season to catch numbers of fish, it can be, and most days are downright easy! I suppose if you have a hard time finding fish you could follow the charter boats around! Lot's of folks do!<P>As long as we don't get a big blow or wicked cold front the Walleyes should be easy to find and snappin good out there that time of year.<P>fiskyknut
