      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 .

Just got Back/LOW

Recommended Posts

Just got back this evening from 3 days at Monument Bay. The weather wasnt the best - very windy and a strange continuous South/Southeast wind the whole time. We ended up getting many nice walleyes on various presentations. Not really a small one in the bunch - average size was 18 inches with quite a few over 21. Saw a lot of fish being brought in to the resort too over 21. The best action was in a shallow grassy inlet in 8 feet of water fishing right next to the rock wall - about 1 to 2 boat lengths out. We bounced a chartruese jig and twister tail tipped with a leach. The last day the smallies started to finally move in and we caught 5 while just fishing for walleyes. We were casting in the same small grassy inlet for Northerns during the afternoon - and I had a 48 to 50 inch Muskie totally clear up and out of the water and miss my lure. ( Muskie doesnt open until next weekend - but it was fun to see it crash up and out of the water!) Lastly , the best times for the walleye bite was from 6 to 8 in the morning and 6 to 8 in the evening.

My dad was up this weekend out of the Rainy River, and they didn't have any luck at all. They really didn't get to fish. I guess it was a southwest wind running right down Pine Island from West to East. He turned around and went back in on Sunday morning after looking out through the gap. <P>I'm watching the weather for this weekend hoping it will be nice with favorable winds.<P>Ryan

Just got back from the Long Point area. We had mixed results with the best luck over on "the fields" and by Twin Islands. We caught fish from 12 feet to 30 feet. Mostly small 10-14 inchers but we managed a few in the 20's and my biggest just over 27 inches. The weather was terrible most of the week and we could not find that magic 60 degree water temp anywhere. Minnows and spinners were the best for us.

Hoffer,<BR>Good to hear you guys did well. My report about mirrors yours. The weather wasn't the greatest but the fishing was great. Our biggest was only 24 1/2" but the 20 - 23 inchers were coming quite easily. We had a couple flurries in the evenings that were incredible. Caught all my fish on lindy's & leech or gold jig & leech. Would like to say thanks to the gang at Flag Island Resort. Great bunch of helpful folks.<BR>Tully

We had three boats out between Springsteel, and River access on Sunday, and we all did quite, we were actually just shy of twelve people limiting out. The morning, when the wind was pretty strong and steady, most of the fish were in 13-15 of water. When the wind died a bit in the afternoon, we could get a bite any deeper than 5-6 fett, with the great majority in 2-4 feet of water. Gold spinners with minnows or leeches out performed nightcrawlers at least 3 to 1.<P>------------------<BR>Fish on gotta go--JON

Fished out of the Zippel Bay area yesterday and caught 8 in three hours before the rain forced us to leave. All fish were caught in 10-12 feet of water with leeches on spinners or a plain hook. Could not get a bite on minnows or nightcrawlers. Spinner color did not seem to matter.

I am going to be up this weekend with my wife and kids. Looking for any updated fishing reports and/or suggestions about where to put in. In the past, I fished out of Zippel Bay Resort. Wondering where the best public access is between Zippel Bay and Wheeler's Point. Thanks. Jim

Zarkohl (Jim)<BR> Check the LOW Get Together Thread. You are certainly welcome to join us over by Warroad on Saturday, I can pretty much guarantee you put quality fish in the boat, with the added bonus of meeting some fellow FMers. Just a thought, but the West side should be as good a place as any. <BR> BTW, I'll be staying at a cabin near Zippel Bay if you want to follow me over Saturday morning.<P>------------------<BR>Fish on gotta go--JON

WalleyeJon: I will be staying near Upper Red for Friday and Saturday night. Plan on taking my two boys (9yrs & 6yrs)fishing for crappies on Friday and then a day trip to LOW on Saturday for some walleyes. (First time to LOW for them). I had planned on fishing around the Zipple Bay area. Given that I have only one day and am bringing the wife and kids, I am thinking that an FM get together and/or traveling to Warroad may be a bit much. Sounds like the fishing has been good in the area, so I think I will stay with my intial plan. But thanks for the invite. If you have any suggestion on landings in the area and/or where to fish, you can e-mail me at jkohl@visi.com. Thanks, Jim
