      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 .

Fall Fishing Help...

Recommended Posts

Scotteye

Hello- I've never fished Lake of the Woods in the fall, but I'm going to plan a trip to Borderview Lodge in September. It would be the in-laws and wife, so I would love to get into some fish. Would mid Sept. be better than the end of Sept.? Also, typically how is the fishing this time of year. I have heard the later the better, but I'm looking for your advise! Also, our jigs the way to go?

Thanks- Scott

I'd pick later September over earlier for sure iffin you wanna try and get in on that Jiggin bite. Usually around the 3rd week in September before the Shiners start showing up in any real numbers. Usually still an openwater trolling bite going on, and/or a rock bite on the mainlake thru September too so it kind of is up to how you may wanna fish them also maybe.

My experience is the later into the fall the better the bite, especially in the River. Mid to late September the fish will more than likely out in the lake, staging for a run into the river.

We usually do a grouse hunt/river fishing trip all in one day in late September. We always seem to catch fish in the river that time of year, but the fish are usually smaller and it's a slower bite.

If you could plan your trip for Mid to late October, that's the time for Great Fall Fishing!

September is pretty early to expect fish in the river

in big numbers. The lake is a different story. The

fish are moving in and holding in the mid range depths.

It would a perfect time to learn to pull crankbaits either

long lining or lead core.

The jig/minnow bite starts going in Oct after the first

couple of cold snaps and the Shiners start running

      Dude, seriously just stay off the ice until its safer.  No fish is worth risking your life for.

       Ice is scary on blue. I was out last weekend fishing next to open water north end is kinda sketchy still my buddy has been there every day this week. Still cant get close to the points only 1 inch there. Thicker by north end but its all older ice from the first freeze lots of cracks. The bay to the east towards the points and whole south end were wide open last sunday. Had 4 inches right next to it we fished as close to the point as we could get. We were 40-50 ft from open water and we got one eye. But ive never been so scared on ice before it was cracking very badly very loud and could feel the ice shifting. The walk back to access in the dark had my heart pounding and i didnt tjink we would make it back without one uf us goin through but we did make it.
