      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 .

Returned last night from fishing, which was pretty good. Fished Friday in front of Garden down rigging in 35'. Worked west of the reef and the best was a 28". Several in the 18-20 inch range. Only a few Saugars. Wind was from the NW and was rough coming out of the Gap. Saturday the wind came from the SSW and was 3 to 4 foot rollers. Hard to control the rigging and lost a ball and release. Busted up one Gimble mounts, but otherwise we were OK. Decided to drift with the rest of the LOTW Navy between Driftwood and Garden toward the Angle. Filled and got back about 6PM, The lake layed down a bit and the ride home was not to bad. Glen, Riverbend, headed home about 3:30 and said the Sea's were still about 3 footer's ands made for a little rougher ride at that time.. All in all it was a good trip, but all trips to LOTW are good, even when your catching the Eyes, Right!!!....Kaz<P>------------------<BR>KAZ

Thanks for the report Kaz. I was up in the angle this weekend..Almost a complete turnaround from the last. Instead of finding walleye out on the larger reefs, all we found were northerns, lots of big northerns. So we did a little planning, and hit only the smaller reefs the rest of the trip, which did give up some pretty nice 'eyes. We managed a few at each one before we hit the next...A slower way of fishing, but at least there is no short supply of reefs up there. Anyways not too bad of a trip. <P>FF

Thanks for the reports guys. We fished the swift ditch area trolling Raps and picked our way to a limit on Sat. Sun. we headed out to 12 mile and picked up a handfull drifting then trolled leadcore around the reef. I had my brother-in-law and sister-in-law up for their first trip to LOTW, and they had a blast up until we had to make the trek in against the rollers. I had more fun this weekend running the boat and watching them reel in 250+ feet of lead core than fishing myself. <P>------------------<BR>"An investment in the High <BR>Life, is an investment in <BR>your future"

Thanks for the report Kaz. We didn't feel like bucking the waves on either Friday or Sat. to get up to Garden. We stayed about 5 miles out of Long Point with no down rigging losses. The bite was steady but 18" was the largest. We ate a good fish fry though.

Kaz,<P>I hollered for you on the radio on Saturday<BR>and didn't get a comeback. Maybe next time.<P>Havent hooked the riggers up yet and dont<BR>want to start fooling with leadcore in big<BR>wind so I haven't been trolling yet.<P>Had an interesting weekend though.<P>I had a contest on my radio show and had<BR>the 3 winners and their best fishing buddies<BR>up to fish with me, Justin Kjos from Premiere<BR>Walleye Adventures guide service(and Dennys<BR>Outdoor Sports) and Mike Lindholm who fishes<BR>the PWT West Division as a pro.<P>3 people in each boat off we went in the <BR>big seas on Sunday morning. We went out of<BR>Rocky Point out to 16 mile reef and found <BR>only a few little fish biting. Mike wanted<BR>to go out to CrowDuck, a rocky flat up near<BR>the Northwest Angle 17 miles from where we<BR>were. GULP. <P>Off we went..MUCH nicer fish<BR>there but not too many would bite. Mike<BR>went to lead core and put 7 or so in the<BR>box in about an hour, we were pulling spinners and had 4 real nice ones in the <BR>same time line.<P>We weren't windmilling fish but we were<BR>getting some nicer ones. It was very wavy<BR>the contest winners hadn't fished the<BR>lake like this before in smaller boats. We <BR>promised a Lake of the Woods adventure and<BR>thats what we had.<P>I was hoping the wind would die down some <BR>for the ride back but it did not so we <BR>pounded back closer to Rocky Point to finish<BR>up. Mike ran out again to his 2nd favorite<BR>rockpile and pulled 3 really nice fish in the<BR>last half hour of the day.<P>The wind tried to spoil the day. I had <BR>hoped it would be calmer for the running we<BR>wanted to do and I had worried that the <BR>fishing wasnt good enough to make everyone<BR>happy. In the cleaning room I dumped the<BR>coolers on table and boy was I suprised!<BR>We had a dozen real solid 17 to 21 inch<BR>fish and I knew we had released at least<BR>one BIG fish. It has been a year of lots<BR>of 13 inchers it was nice to see some of <BR>these quality fish again.<P>Mike and Justin were great on this crappy<BR>windy day. Our contest winners were smiling<BR>but tired at the end of our Lake of the Woods<BR>adventure.<P>Thanks also to Shannon Martin (CatmanLee)<BR>who tried to video a good part of the day.<BR>Not the best conditions for running a camera,<BR>netting fish and hopping from boat to boat<BR>in the big waves. <P><BR>------------------<BR>Curt Quesnell<BR>NorthCountry Outdoors Radio<p>[This message has been edited by curt quesnell (edited 07-26-2004).]
