      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 .

I am glad the Governor caught a fish this<BR>weekend. I did not catch a fish. I saw<BR>a guy catch one and that was it.<P>Fished the west side with my dad and a couple<BR>of his buddys who always get together and<BR>fish the opener on LOW. We stayed pretty<BR>close to Springsteel on saturday. Every<BR>time we went out it would start to rain and<BR>we would go in until it quit.<P>We made a couple of drifts right off Springsteel point (I said we didnt go far)<BR>thats where I saw a fish caught. It cleared<BR>up for a while in the PM on saturday<BR>so we went over past the blinker and worked<BR>our way back to the west until it started<BR>raining again. So we called it a day.<P>Sunday was nice and sunny with just a tiny<BR>hint of warmth in the air. We went over to<BR>Elm Point and anchored up in 14 feet of <BR>water and jigged for an hour and a half.<BR>we called "15 minute rule" twice but got<BR>2 bites that started the clock ticking again.<BR>The bites were real bites but more of the<BR>Perch variety.<P>We then went way back up into that corner<BR>to the left of Elm and worked our way back<BR>starting in 2 and half feet of water and finished out in front of Toms Bay with nary<BR>another bite. <P>Packed up and went home.<P>Had alot of fun fishin with the fellas. Gordy is the oldest at 80, Dads in his low<BR>70s and Jack is in his mid to late 60s. I<BR>had to come home, they will stay up there<BR>for week and a half so they get to be there<BR>when things settle down and the fish start<BR>biting.<P>I havent heard but I will bet things were<BR>better over on the East side of the lake<BR>in the Gaps.<P>------------------<BR>Curt Quesnell<BR>NorthCountry Outdoors Radio

I didn't get a chance to head out Saturday, but went out around today for a couple of hours. I caught a nice 20 inch and threw another smaller one back. Both were in the 8'-12' range. It should pick up once the water heats up a bit.

Was out today from 8:30 to 3:00. Veerry slow! Wife got 1 walleye about 16" and I caught a 19" football smallmouth off Elm Pt. I thought I had a nice 'eye when I set the hook, but was somewhat shocked when I saw the smallie. The smallie didn't put up a normal smallmouth battle so you know they were sluggish. 8 more degrees in the water and they will start snappin'.<P>later,<BR>toddb

I was up to Springsteel this weekend also. Curt, I saw you saturday morning about 11:00. We were in the blue/white silverline, i was the [PoorWordUsage] standing up in the back of the boat when it was raining a little bit. You were a little too far away to yell at. <BR>I didn't even get a bite. we were just northwest of springsteel saturday morning and then went straight out from springsteel in the afternoon. maybe we'll get into em' in a week or two when it warms up a bit.

Tied you Curt!! When the temp reached 45 towards noon we lauched the boat and headed for the lake. A small pack was in front of the washout at Morris and a big pack along Pine. In two hours we had two bites and saw nary a net. The radio traffic was mostly bad and more bad. I marked quite a few fish in 17-20 feet but no bites. It was a good weekend to get the cabin spruced up and I was pleased my lady was willing to jump in the boat--only her second year of fishing and thinks the summer bouncer/spinner bite is more fun. <BR>Hope the water clears up/warms up by next weekend. It was 41-42.<BR>Good luck to all.

Well I was over fishing out of the gap and we didn't do very well either. I actually didn't catch a fish all weekend. We had a pretty good start though so I thought it was going to be a good opener. My dad and friend caught 2 nice walleye within about the first 10 minutes of fishing in about 7 to eight feet of water straight out of the gap. Things slowed up until my stepmom caught a keeper fish sometime late afternoon. We caught enough for supper. <P>Sunday we only caught one small keeper and one throw back.<P>I really didn't mind though since it's just so nice to be out on the water and back at it again. It'll be nice though when it's not so busy. It was just crazy up their! We did see the governor in the Team crestliner boat. I didn't find out until later that was the boat he was in, but we new something was up when one boat moved out and suddenly a herd of boats was following.<P>I felt like maybe I wasn't completely inept when we were fishing over by Gary Roach off of Pine Island and it looked like he was throwing in the towel. <P>I'll be up again for Friday through Tuesday for memorial day weekend.<P>Ryan

Hines,<BR>I hear you there. I was skunked all day Saturday and most of Sunday. Thought I hooked into a pig and turned out to be a big pout. Didn't see anyone else doing much either. It was a wet ride getting back to the river!<BR>Tully

Hmmmmm...Sounds like a tough bite all over! I was at Zipple Bay, Three of us in my boat, Three in my brothers boat...The first drift we had a 17" and a 22" eye and a 15 inch sauger!! Then it was pretty slim pickens the rest of the day...My boat ended up with 6 eyes...14",16"17"17"20.5"&22". two saugers 13" & 15"...my brothers boat ended up with 4 eyes and one sauger...I think if the sun would have stayed out it would have been much better!! But then it's only going to get better!!

I was fishing the gap at morris point on Sunday and didn't catch one walleye! I marked a few fish in 17-20 feet of water, but could'nt get em' to to bite anything, and I tried everything except crankbaits (however I almost tried that too!) I did manage to catch a 36" northern in four mile bay. So atleast I caught something.<P>When I came in to load up, I notice a boat with alot of water running out of it, and I do mean ALOT! Looks like someone found a deadhead?<P>Oh well, hopefully it will pick up soon.<P>------------------<BR>CatMan
