      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 .

Downrigging

Has downrigging the deeper water been producing 'eyes yet? We're heading up from the Mankato area to LOTW this weekend and was wondering if we should plan to be hook-n-line fishing or dropping the balls.<P>------------------<BR>Catch something!<BR>Even if the fish don't bite.

For everyone that didn't respond, probably cause you think the water temp and fish activity wouldn't be conducive to downrigging, DOWNRIGGING 30-32' out produced bottom bouncing up by Oak Island during our trip 2 weeks ago.<BR>We definetly marked A LOT more fish out in middle of the lake in the 30' water than anywhere else.<P>Here's to those who break away from the pack to find/catch fish!<P>------------------<BR>Catch something!<BR>Even if the fish don't bite.

We didn't do outproduce anybody downrigging but I'll tell you what the fish we're out their though all over the sonar. I would suggest a mixed bag right now. Hit the rocks if you can for a while, fish the sand if you can't get out deep, and troll some crankbaits during the midday to see if the crankbaits are working better. <P>It's been a weird year up their so far, and the weather hasn't cooperated much at all. <P>Ryan

We caught them in 6 feet of water on hammered gold on the soth side while everyone else was out in low teens to 2o feet deep(Released 2-23", and one 20" and kept 7 between my wife, Bro, sister inlaw and myself). We also saw many boats out a 3 mile ansd other areas downrigging. Water temps then, before th cold front of July 4-5th were 64-65. Hope that helps.

As soon as the water warms up fish are<BR>biting out deep, on the rocks and at fishy<BR>places on the shoreline. The days that are<BR>decent the fish will go. <P>Fishing was pretty good before the storm on<BR>saturday and they continued to bite on <BR>sunday (although the fish were a bit smaller)<P>I am gonna try to pull some lead core starting the next trip up. Trolling in the<BR>deep water is solid producer in the warmest<BR>months. If you just wont troll, hit the <BR>rock piles for the biggest fish of the summer.<P>July and August CAN be the best two of the <BR>year for numbers and size if you get out<BR>away from the shoreline.<P>And finally, on the hottest, stillest days<BR>of dog daze pull cranks real shallow along<BR>the shore or slip bobber the reef tops (but<BR>be vewwr, vewwwy quiet)<P>Good Luck all<P>------------------<BR>Curt Quesnell<BR>NorthCountry Outdoors Radio
