      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 .

Hi Rainman
After 2 yrs. of constant great fishing I have started this year off a little slow.Time on the lake has been limited because the weekend weather has been awful.This weekend was nice and the fishing picked up a bit,but the fish were mostly of the small male variety.Lake shiners seemed to work best,but were $4.75 if you could get them.I did catch a couple on leeches also.I do not use crawlers much so I can't help you there but I would have some minnows or leeches in the boat also.It's a little early for Rapala action but I tried anyway and came away empty.I'll be up again this weekend and I am optimistic that fishing will be good and you will have a great week.

Have fun
Bruce

floating minnow,

I don't know how much you fish the lake later in the summer (July & August), maybe you nail them on cranks at night? I've never been much of a plug fisherman or night fisherman in the summer for that matter. We've done well during the day in July, most times we've been up there the last three years. Virtually every fish has come on a crawler & just a colored hook, although I don't think a particular color meant squat. Shiners have definitely seem to be the ticket though this time of year.

Hello bigbucks

We have a place on the lake so I am up almost every weekend until early October.Starting in a few weeks the vast majority of my fishing will be cranks.Yes night fishing is what I enjoy most and the last couple years have produced nice size fish(4 28" fish released last summer).Crankbaits also work during the day for walleye off the edges and suspended over deep water.The wonderful thing about Ottertail is that it's a great dead of summer lake and many different techniques will work.As far as colored hooks go I am a fan of the red ones.

Take care
Bruce
