      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 usually fish Ottertail in late July. I work a lot of the mid-lake humps that rise out of the deep water and top off anywhere from 18 feet to 30 feet. This lake has incredible structure. I typically will drift or troll over these humps with a lindy rig / leech combination.

For the pike I will troll a shad rap on the deep side of the weed edges. This is usually 8 - 13 feet of water. I have had pretty good luck doing this. You might even get into the walleye with this. I would also try this same presentation at night for walleye. I have with limited success, but I have heard from quite a few people that have had real good success doing this.

Hopes this helped a little bit. Good Luck.

Hey were headed out there this weekend. Most likely going to try leeches on a lindy rig with a plain hook. We've always had good luck around this time of year.. We fish in depths between 18-24 feet early in the morning. Once the sun is over the trees Its time to head out...
