      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 .

lindys and spinners on OT

Recommended Posts

Guest

i'm on a trip to ottertail and i was wondering what kinds of spinners/lindys (ie color, brand, features, and size/shape) i should use to rake in the pike or walleye.
I'd also like to know any awesome spots you've found we've got a gps so coordinates will work or give me directions from HI-VISTA.

thanks!!!

6ft Silver spinners with blue beeds and small blue hooks. shinners and small fathead minnows seemed to work best.

I haven't fished Ottertail in a week, but the last time I was out we fished some of the deeper humps. Just about all of them had fish on them, but it wasn't until the fifth spot that we got some to bite. Last week the hot bait was crawlers on a six foot lindy. This weekend who knows. Hope to make it out there Saturday pm. I have to stop at my moms, seems she has a list of things that need to be done at the cabin. Hope it is a short one so that I can get some time on the water.

Just about forgot. You know there is a slot on Ottertail for Pike? If you want pike go just west of the Amor Park point. There is a nice cabbage bed that lies in about 15-16 feet of water. Last year it was loaded with toothies. Chartruese (sp) bead on the lindy with #6 red hooks works best for me.
