      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'll be arriving in the Ottertail area the first week of August. If anyone would like to discuss patterns that are currently working on Ottertail, or would enjoy discussing other lakes in the area it would be greatly appreciated.
We were up the same week last year and tremendous luck fishing very shallow on Ottertail. From reading other post this doesn't seem to be the norm. We enjoy fishing for bigger fish and just keep enough smaller fish to have a fresh meal.
I've heard some of the lakes are giving up some nice fish open water trolling? Is this pattern working on Ottertail?
Any information would be appreciated. If you'd rather contact me through email please do so.

Hey flip,
the open water thing works on ottertail also.
I dont spend alot of time fishing shallow there other than pulling crankbaits after dark over the flats. That bite could be good when you get up here. Right now were pulling leeches and crawlers on spinner rigs in 17 to 35 feet of water with good success. the shallow bite has won quite a few tournaments on the tail.. Theres alot of it out there! The past week and a half there has been several fish in the 6 to 8 lb class taken. Have a safe, fun and productive trip! Paul

Paul,
Appreciated the feedback. I was presently surprised at our success last year with the shallow bite on the tail. I learned a new presentation in snap jigging that I hadn't used before. I tend to rig and pull spinners for the most part. I've noticed in many of your post the use of the shiners. they were definitely the ticket for us last year. Nightcrawlers on the deeper humps and the shiners shallow. The shallow bite was fast a furious, but primarily an early morning or late evening thing. Thanks again for the update. I was hoping to possibly try a few other lakes in the area this trip up. Any recommendations on alternative lake options. Any lakes seeming to peak right now on the walleye?
Apologize for all the questions, just love talking fishing, patterns, techniques, etc.
thanks again for the feedback and hope your days on the water have been successful!
