      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 .

Now that summer has made itself comfortable, has the walleye fishing been better at night? I have had great fishing in the late morning and early afternoon, but most of the fish I catch after dusk are cats and sturgeon. Some gar too! I pulled a longnose that was almost 37 inches!!! I should have brought it somewhere for photos and weight, but I figured it made it this far I let it go...
Really intersted in walleyes right now though. Are we talking deeper than 23'?

The sucka,
I haven't been out on a night excursion yet but soon.July and August have always been good for me or if you find an area with alot of baitfish it needs to be looked at during the night time.The walleyes I have been catching have been moving into more shallow sandy areas.With the high water the fish have been moving into the 5-15' water.I was catching walleyes in the mississippi river in water from 2-6' fishing for smallmouth bass.All on artificials such as husky jerks, tubes, and even some walleyes on topwater.The fish were averaging 3 to 6 pounds.As the water starts to drop check the deeper drops again.But for now keep an eye on the sandy points and flats in 5-15' of water.Mainly on low light periods or windy days.
good luck!
chris

Thanx Crappie, I am going out early today before the festivities. I will hit some of my sandbars north of stillwater today. I guess I kind of overlooked the fact that they would be shallower with the rising water because it's been so **** HOT lately.

As for cats, I just look for almost the same thing Crappie was talking about for walleyes, a good sandy area, preferablely a flat that has a long opening to deep water, at night they come up on the flats to eat!

Am eddy formed by and island is one of my favorites! Look for small holes at the base of sand flats and fish the ridge moving up onto the flat as it gets darker. 6-12 ft. is my normal working depth but varies from spot to spot.
