      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 .

Big Dawg-

You should have maybe asked east or west instead of north or south. I know it may be deceiving, but the lake runs east-west. Anyway, both ends can have tremendous fishing. Personally, I've caught more and bigger fish on the west end, but only because I know this area better and fish it 80% of the time. There are guys that will tell you the exact opposite and say the east end is better. It's a big lake, so I would suggest looking at a map, pinpoint a few spots you would like to try(either end), then branch out from there - oh, and if you don't have a gps, you should probably get one. Some spots aren't very big and you may find them once and that may be it. Good Luck!

The lake kinda runs north-south, east-west. Kind of all in between smile.gif

I fish the eastern or northern basin primarily. I catch way more fish on this side of the lake.

Here too, Altho I'm getting sharper with the southwest end I cut my teeth chasing walleyes on the northeast end. Heres my opinion why (or at least me) We have favorite ends on ottertail. For me it was the people I grew up fishing around.Small boats and a 10 horse was big! It takes a long time to get past amor point running from the sportsmans access, so we just never ventured that far. BUT we know our part of the lake very well and never had to either. I'm sure many people have the same story...Bottom line is both ends of the lake are great! Paul

Ottertail is a very intreging lake. I have fished it some in the winter - with fairly good success. In the summer I have my boat on the boat lift on my lake and sorry to say am usually to lazy to trailer it and check out other lakes. I always check out the boats on Ottertail when I drive past the dam on the south west corner, and most of the boats are quite a ways away. My perception is tht the NorthEast side is better based on where I have seen the boats. Nothing bad to say about the lake whether it is north-south or east-west, just wish I could fish it more often.
