      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 .

Fishing Rainy opener weekend....

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I'm going to be fishing Rainy for the first time. I'll be staying with some buddies at at their cabin located on Frank's point/bay accross from Grassy Island/Tilson Bay. Any good pointers on where to fish would be great. We'll be trying a number of areas and fishing mostly walleyes, smallies and northerns. Any way points would be appreciated too. One of the boats has a GPS in the boat and I have a hand held GPS that I have to try and figure out how to use again. Looking forward to a fun 4 days of beer and fish fries.

Thanks

Jon

HI J.,

I HAVE FISHED IN 2 TO 4 FEET OF WATER, CASTING 1/8OZ. JIGS ALONG THE SHORELINES & HAD EXCELLENT SUCCESS, BUT ALSO DONE VERY WELL IN 40+ FEET OF WATER., SO TRY BOTH. NORTHERNS, YOU WILL STILL FIND SOME IN THE SHALLOWS.

SORRY, I DON'T GIVE OUT WAYPOINTS, DID THAT 1 TIME & WATCHED 3 GUYS KEEP WAY OVER THEIR LIMITS., WHICH RATHER UPSET ME.

SINCERELY,

FISHMIESTER

I fished Rainy on the opener last year and limited success. The weather turned cold and the fish were deep. All of the walleyes that I caught came from 25-40ft deep. The key was to find bait fish on the graph and then jig over top of the bait fish. If the patter is the same this year you will want to hold a jig about 6 inches off bottom. Don't even move the jig as the fish only took the jig when I didn't jig it. I have found that the blue, pink and white fireball jigs worked the best. Don't be afraid to use a stinger if you are missing fish. I would tip the jigs with a rainbow as they are may favorite minnow.
