      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 .

Report from weekend of 10/3

Good afternoon campers, I had the pleasure of sweet talking mama and therefore receiving permission to fish 2 days last weekend. It's great having an understanding better half. Started out fishing Friday up at catfish bar with no success. The only presentations I tried were plastics and fatheads. Tried everything from 15 to 45 feet of water, nothing. To tell you the truth with the wind blowin like it was I wasn't tryin too hard, just wanted to find a calm spot on the water. Headed down to the Kinni to troll some cranks and drown some minnows and plastics. I did manage 2 eyes there on cranks and about a 6 pound sheepshead on a jig and minnow. Worked my way down the Wisconsin side just south of Kinni and didn't do too badly there. Trolled cranks through the schools of shad and managed 10 more fish (the largest being 24") all of which found there way back into the water. On Sunday I started out on the Mississippi just below the Hastings darn with no success so I worked my way down to Prescot. Fished just north of the bridge with a lindy and 6" redtail. Caught 8 more fish and decided to move up river. Fished a couple of points that drop off into deep water hoping to contact some larger fish. Marked lots of fish at the base of the drop but no takers, just a couple of little ones in 16 feet. Who would have thought a 13" walleye would eat a 6" chub.

Never Enough Time to Fish

Started fishing at 7am on Wed, Oct. 8th and caught 2 smallies, 1 largemouth and 1 silver bass in the first hour or so. Nothing else the rest of the morning. Tried trolling cranks, tube jigs and even the fly rod before ot got too windy. Was fishing the shorline south of the Kinni.

When I left at 1pm, the upper lot at the Bluffs was almost half full. Quite a few boats for a Wednesday I thought. Were there any other FMers out? How did you do?
