      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 .

Jigster: Not much on Wallete Retreat is an under statement!!! The have not up dated their reports since Aug 13. My buddy was up this weekend and the fishing was as poor as it's been for a long time. The wind and the rain made it miserable in the Gap, Four Mile Bay and the river. Shinners are piddleing in, as they have been for about three weeks. They just can't seem to really turn on. I hope this is not an indication of a poor Shinner spaun. I guess we just have to wait and when those who choose the right weekend report, and be ready to drop everything and head up there. As of now though, it's not the time. I do have to add that some days are great and then the next is a bust. The bite should start being more consistant shortly if they are going to come in at all. Remember, last year because of the low water, we didn't get the Shiner movement we expected. Hopefully this year they will come in like a couple of years ago. It should improve in a couple of weeks, when I have to go up, fishing ready or not!!!! Kaz

It's still a little early for any real fall run. The shiners are still very sporadic. The good news is the river level is up to normal if not slightly above and there is fairly strong current, both good indicators. Once we get past this full moon phase and get some cooler weather I look for a strong shiner run, which should mean WALLEYES. <BR>Good luck. Ol'Sneller

I know the fishing will be better in the next few weeks, but I've done fine the past two Saturdays in Four Mile. The wind is what has made it tough. The 'eyes aren't quite in that "see it; eat it" frame of mind, so feeling the bite has been tough with jigs, with 2-3 foot waves. I didn't try it, but I would guess a Lindy or Roach Rig would have been pretty effective, with the fish not hitting hard yet. A really sharp hook was key too, because you only have a split second to set it. As far as the shiners go, they are gathering momentum towards the river, but with our weather finally deciding to warm up, it may be a few days before they are in full force. The graph sure showed a lot of schools in the bay. The water temps are still a few degrees from triggering the fish, but they are getting there. We actually had our best action in the middle of the day Saturday, which is a good sign that the fall rush is close. Good luck....<P>------------------<BR>Fish on gotta go--JON

Jigster, I was up on Sunday and the fishing was pretty good. I'm just down the Cyrus road from you towards Walleye Retreat. Seems mornings are lots better than mid-day. Groups of fish scattered along the pine island dropoff. No biggies, just nice fish. Marlene at Adrians said the bite was good in the gap--lotsa current and a fairly heave jig needed, she said. Should just get better! If you see a silver toyota with a yarcraft behind it in the yard, stop by and say hi.<BR>Steve

I've got to run to South Dakota this weekend and do my annual PR with the rancher we stay with and the other super land owners who allow us the use of thier land. Hope you guys all have a great tourney and catch bunches of those wallies. Good luck and hang on. Bill
