      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 .

Our fishing league fished Star last night, 8 boats, no crappies very few bass and a couple of walleyes, I heard they were very deep 20-30 feet. 1 guy caught a sunfish at 20 feet.

Another fishing league member adding his 2 cents worth. We lindy rigged leeches from 6-7:30 pm and caught 3 little walleyes. At 7:30 we tried cranks for some reason and while it wasn't fast we did get a 16" walleye a small northern and a 16" largemouth. Just about anything that runs 10-12 ft deep worked for us in just about any color. Find the weed edge (about 14 ft) and try to stay on it. Going down wind was useless, all strikes came while going upwind. Really slow, I think is the key. Good luck this weekend.

Well im back from our bass tourney. We mostly fished the reeds and pulled up about 15 bass from range from 1-2.5 pounds. Caught a couple in 3 pouund range. The biggest bass was 5 pounds and some odd ounces crankbaiting over 15ft of water. Plenty of perch that followed, alot of little guys. A few nice sunnies off the reeds in 6-8ft of water. Well thats all i know and im dead tired. Nite

Well, we're back and I have to say that cold front kicked our tails!!! We did have some success w/ crappies on Sunday before the front and again Friday as it started to warm back up running orange spinners w/ fatheads in 11-14' of water just above the weeds. Lots of Rock Bass and those annoying 15-20" snakes. We found very few walleyes wanting to cooperate. Tried trolling, rigging, etc with no luck day or night. We could find them on the graph in classic spots, but I swear they had lockjaw...

Oh yeah, my 13 year old did pull an accidental 4.5lb largemouth on a spinner rig as well. Dug him down into those thick weeds and a good battle took place on that one.

Oh well, I guess we all need to be given a good dose of humility on occasion... :-)

Yep Paul, especially in August when it gets down to 40 at night and only up to 57 during the day!!!

We didn't make it to Little Pine. A bit more of a hassle on the trip when the wives and kids are along. Dad and I will probably come up to BP in late September or early October for a long weekend and the Little Pine night bite.

How's fishin been for you this year?

Yep, wife's Mom was born & raised in Norway so they're going back (first time in about 15 years) to visit family. I'll be doin' the Mr. Mom thing!!

Just wondering if there are any new updates out on Star. My wife and I will be making our annual trip up to Ebert's 9/28 until Labor Day. I would really like to get into some walleyes or northerns, since I haven't done too well on either since we've been @ Ebert's, but the panfish almost make up for it...
