      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 .

BlueSharp,<P>Rick, Dennis and myself will be up 10/14 and 10/15 fishing the same area. We will be at Clementson Resort. We won't be hard to find. If you see a goofy looking guy at the wheel of a RiverPro with two goofier guys hanging on for dear life all the while mainting huge smiles, you'll know that you found us. grin.gif<P>------------------<BR>Paul<BR>ProStaff Director<BR><A HREF="http://fishingminnesota.com" TARGET=_blank>FishingMinnesota</A><BR><A HREF="http://Iceleaders.com" TARGET=_blank>Iceleaders</A><P> PWaldowski@comcast.net<BR><A HREF="http://www.drakemotel.com" TARGET=_blank>Drake Motel</A><BR><A HREF="http://marcumcustomerservice.com/index.aspx" TARGET=_blank>Marcum</A><BR><A HREF="http://otteroutdoors.com" TARGET=_blank>Otter Outdoors</A><BR><A HREF="http://www.jrstackle.com/index.html" TARGET=_blank>JR's Tackle</A><BR><A HREF="http://minnesota-lake-maps.com/" TARGET=_blank>Lakemaster Lake Maps</A><p>[This message has been edited by Paul Waldowski (edited 09-06-2004).]

Kaz<P>Whats the river level and current like like? Is the current what you would call normal or is it still down? How about the water level in the lake, last year at this time it was very low. I'll be up later in Oct and just starting to think about the trip any info you could give me would be great. I really enjoy reading your knowledge of the lake. Do you ever go across the street to Ballards for a cold one?<BR>Lund 18

WCT

Bluesharp;<BR> Just FYI, the last couple mornings I've noticed large groups of crow ducks(cormmies)on the river. The only reason I can think of for them being there this time of year is minnows(shiners). If the shiners are there the walleyes can't be far behind. This is just my theory and not anything I have confirmed, but is sure does get a fall walleye guy salivating. As far as river level goes I would say it is about normal for this time of year, decidedly higher than last year. Current is moderate, should be able maintain contact with bottom with 3/8 or 1/2 oz. jigs.<BR> Enjoy your fall fishing maybe see you on the water. Ol'Sneller

Lund: I agree with WCT, that things are pretty much back to normal. Two weeks ago I had a minimun of 5 feet in 4 mile bay. It will be good if the Shiners are coming into the river already. If the "Sky Carp" are in the river, then the Shiners have started too. Ballards, yes I do visit there, but most of the time I "water" at Riverbend or Adrian's. I did have dinner at Ballards and my neighbor, Lars Johnson, is there every morning for coffee. It sounds like you must be in the area too. I'm at 3343 Burr Oak, just down the street from Ballards. If you see a white Denali in the drive, stop in and introduce youself.... Sounds like the river may turn on early this year. If the shiners come in, they didn't seem to last year, then the Ice fishing should be good in December too. I monitor channel 82, so give me a call if your on the water this fall.... kaz

Kaz<BR>Thanks for the update. I don't live to close I'm over 400 miles from the ramp at Wheelers Point but I've been coming up 2 to 4 times a year for the past 10 years. I love the fall and March opening on the river. I'll be up in Oct if I see the Denali I'll stop in and say hi. I usually walk every morning around 5:30am but I won't stop in then. <BR>Lund 18

Riverfishermen...my wife, chocolate lab pup, and I are spending the season (June - Nov) on the Rainy River next to the Silver Creek junction. Walleye fishing and teaching some basic retrieving/pointing skills. I fish most every day..mostly on LOTW downrigging near Long Point/Gull Rock..but have spent many days walleye, pike, and smallmouth fishing on the river. The shiners are definitely here as are the cormarants..lots of both. More walleyes moving in every day, it seems. The creek out front is a good bet where it joins the Rainy as well as many other holes within a mile either up or down river. Our dock and kitchen are always open for a visit about hunting/fishing and a hot cup..on the Rainy River side at Silver Creek..single story brown cottage with big yard. Roger, Phyl, Dakota. Good fishing and tight lines.
