      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 .

Spent a lot of time on Otter Tail Lake and West Battle over the weekend for once!

Otter Tail was completely dead for us. The weather was pretty hot and still on Saturday and I've always struggled with eyes with that weather on OT. We tried lots of tactics, and nothing produced a walleye.

West Battle, however, produced some nice walleyes, pike, bass, sunfish and northerns. We CPR'd a nice 29" walleye caught on a leech. We found most activity around 20 feet of water over the weekend.

The bass were on the small side when I spent some time with them on Friday. Sunfish were active in the shallows. The crappies have appeared to have gone deeper now and tougher to find active fish.

While fishing walleyes and pike we had some monster muskies follow our lures to the boat. I spotted a 50+" ski follow a 3lb pike to the boat. This fish was absolutely huge! Two other muskies followed our lures to the boat, and the strange thing was that our lures were coated with weeds at the time! They would not hit any other lures tossed at them, but it was really fun to see those fish.

We specifically targeted muskies too and did not have any luck.

Anyone else have any reports to compare?

Hey CD
I fished Fri.and Sat. night.Two very different evenings.
Friday night I was out from 10-2.The wind was 10-12 mph,almost a full moon and at midnight the northern lights covered half the sky.The walleyes were attacking my rapalas in 7-10 feet.Nice fish ,17"-23"
Saturday night I tried from 9-11:30. There was no wind so the bugs were so bad that it was hard to pay attention to what I was doing.Caught just 2 in the 16" range.
During the day it can be tough without a breeze.

WallEYES and I fished Ottertail on Saturday from about 4-11PM. Mostly in the center lake area near grandpa's and the Amor Point break just off to the east. Found some 'eyes on a little finger off one of the midlake humps and took home four eaters. We were dragging long line rigs with crawlers and jumbo leeches. Biggest was 19.5....The bugs were incredible! Quite the hatch!....It was hard to see coming off the lake!......T
