      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 .

Just wondering if fish ever try and spawn during the flood and their eggs get stuck on the shore. Just thought of it driving by the Buffalo near Hawley.

That would be a waste.

I was thinking that same thing the other day, then the thought acurd to me, maybe the water is to cold to spawn .?

Mark hit the nail on the head with the water temps being to cold to spawn.

However, there are instances when river levels get too high during the spawn wash the eggs away, and there are instances when river levels get too low during the spawn and strands eggs.

Yup, definitely too cold to spawn still. However, water levels can undermine spawning. Water temps changing rapidly can also have a similar effect- eggs simply get absorbed back into the fish rather than dropped out. Either way, it's a bad deal in terms of future fish. With any luck the water levels will get back to normal in a hurry and we'll have a decent spawn- and obviously, get many, many people's lives back towards normalcy.

Marky-Mark --

Yep just spend too much time thinking about fishing. wink.gif

Anyone have any idea when the river will go down and walleye action will pick up?

Pike may spawn up in flooded grass, and the water falls, then they loose the hatch. Walleye seldom fall for this, even if the temps are in the zone. But...that said... I have seen walleye try to spawn on flooded gravel roadbeds under the right/wrong conditions.

For the most part pike are the only early spawners that tend to get there timeing wrong on the Red.

I don't get out enough to give an accurate report. One person that might be interested in doing a weekly report may be Jeff Lawson. I know he does alot of fishing on alot of different lakes in Minnesota, Nodak and Canada. So, I guess I am saying that I would not be interested in writing reports. Except on here of course!

Jeff would be a good option. I will have to ask him.

Except all of the reports will say that he caught the fish right in the mouth. grin.gifwink.gif
