      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 .

I normally dont fish ottertail that much in the summer but i think im gonna be going up there for some more walleye fishing this summer. Are there any better spots to get some walleyes other then the Amor flats? Thats like all me and my friends go to. So i was just wondering if there were any better spots then that.

There are MANY places to catch summertime walleyes on ottertail other than amor flats. If you have a good locator go out and scout the humps, bumps and bars, there are hundreds of pieces of fish holding structure, just keep moving till you find fish. Key on 20 to 35 feet on sunny days, shallower on cloudy or a bit windy days..Happy hunting! Paul

Hey Juice -

Don't overlook the the night trolling later on in the shallows. Pulling raps can be a lot of fun and get you into some nicer fish.

Like Paul said, there are HUNDREDS of spots to try. I mostly fish it in the winter, and I still have about 50 waypoint in my GPS that I have not even tried yet.

T-Bone and WallEYES fish it quite a bit in the summer and could give you some tips.

The Warden and I are taking the yard-ape to the Carnival at the school on Friday. Are you working that? If so, I can show you some good spots on the map.

Hey thanks for those suggestions! Paul ill try finding those things this summer if i can convince my friends to do it. :S

Yea Gissert i'll be at the U-town carnival, probably not til 7 or 8 since i got a baseball game that day. But ill try to find ya.

ChuckN- Yea i can show you some great action for bass on one of my lakes. One lake in particular has bass ranging from 1-4lbs that bite like mad. Practically anything you throw out they hammer. Or in my other lake, the one gissert usually fishes, you can catch a decent poundage of bass at nite (on topwater) and northerns in the day time.

WallEYES- Yea ill have to go out with you guys on OT. Cuz trollin the flats kinda gets old..:S Yea my grandpa is into reading books. Pretty educated guy. But thanks for the replies and ill have to try them out.

Just one thing, if your catching fish why change? just to see some new scenery? I know the feeling, explore new tactics etc. But if your catching its sure tough to change and walk away from a known producer...Happy hunting! Paul

The only reason why im changing is that i know theres fish there. I just wanna try out new methods and new parts of the lake. Theres no better way to get better, without try new things. And if nothing produces i still have the spot i know. smile.gif

my dad is heading up to ottertail tomorrow to look at some lots for building a cabin

i have not fished ottertail but heard it is a good lake particularly first ice and spring

just wondering what the fishing is like in the heat of the summer

is the action constistant throughout the summer
i also saw how deep the lake is and was wondering if those eyes just go deep in the summer and suspend over the deep water
if this happens they would be hard to find for me atleast

your comments would be appreciated

Thanks for the clarification.

That is the same area we will probably be on the opener. If the warm weather continues the bite should be good and the shiners running.

Anyone heard how the accesses are on Otter Tail with the water down?
