      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 .

The wife and kids and I will be up for a two week stay on Spirit Lake just outside of Vergas 7/12-26.It's been 2 years sice we've been to beautiful Ottertail/Becker counties due to the wifes battle w/cancer (she's doing well enough to go fishing again) Was just wondering how the fishings been lately. We also enjoy fishing McDonald,West Silent,Star & Round lakes. Any info on where to find crappie, walleye, gills & bass ( depths,structure, baits ) will help in making this long awaited trip successful.
Thanks in advance for any tips. Tom

Tom,

Just came home from Star this afternoon. The fishing has been incredible. We caught plenty of walleye, and some nice gills to boot. The walleyes are around 14-20ft. off bars and flats. Use a lindy rig, plain hook, 6ft. snell, and a leech. Worked great. Bluegills are all over the lake in the weedbeds of 12-14ft. just off of the big weed beds. Hope this is of some help to you. I'm glad to hear your wife is doing better. I hope your trip is a success and you enjoy your time together.

Good Luck,
Rusty

I was on Otter Tail this holiday weekend and did alright. During the day was tough, but late afternoon was great. I ended up releasing a 25 inch, 23 inch, and 4: 12-14 inchers. I fished the weedline with leeches. HOW DID EVERYONE DO DURING THE 4TH? WHAT DEPTH DID YOU CATCH EM IN THE DAY?

Fished Big McDonald a week ago (the 29th); you can always get into the sunfish there. Just go out from the ramp along the western shore, find the weeds, and anywhere from 6 or 7 to about 14 feet you can find 'em (move in/out if you're not catching 'em quickly, or catching big ones). You'll throw back three or four little ones for every keeper...but there are some nice ones to be had.
You can also troll along the weedlines and pick up some northerns...I caught a couple (pretty small, though) on a spinnerbait doing that.
