      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 .

HI F.M.ERS,

HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO FISH WITH 2 OF THE BEST WALLEYE FISHERMAN I KNOW ON RAINY TODAY, JIM ROLANDO & TOM WORTH ARE KNOWN TO THE LOCALS AS COUPLE OF GUYS WHO KNOW HOW TO FISH. WE FISHED REEFS & BREAKLINES, AND DID THE BEST IN 30 TO 40 FEET WITH LINDY RIGS, WHOLE NIGHTCRAWLERS, A FEW ON SHINNERS. WE HAD 11 OR 12 IN THE SLOT, KEPT 7, AND RELEASED A FEW SMALLER FISH AND BASS. WAS FUN TO FISH WITH THOSE GUYS, TOM HAS BEEN FISHING RAINY SINCE 1958, THE YEAR I WAS BORN, SO HE HAS FISHED RAINY ALMOST 50 YEARS., IT WAS HONOR TO BE IN THE BOAT WITH THEM.

SINCERELY,

FISHMEISTER

Did you try leeches? We are going up next Thursday for our annual trip and usually only buy leeches... I am rethinking this, as every report thus far has night crawlers being the best bait.

Thanks,

Ben

HI ANY LAKE,

I HAVE NOT DONE AS WELL ON LEECHES, HOWEVER THEY WILL STILL WORK, JUST HAVE DONE BETTER ON SHINNERS & CRAWLERS. AS FAR AS THE AREAS YOU HAVE MENTIONED, I DO NOT FISH THEM LIKE SUPERBLACK & SOME OF THE OTHERS DO...SO I'M LETTING THEM HANDLE THAT REPLY.

SINCERELY,

FISHMEISTER

Fishmeister it was a blast fishing with you guys. Thanks for letting arookie follow ya around for a bit!

Our day started off slow and got even slower mid day. Later in the evening I did a little exploring and hit reefs on my chip that nobody was on. It payed off a bit. I got 6 nice eyes. All in the slot except 1. Wound up with about 9 eyes 1 big smallie, 1 6" walleye grin.gif and a few pike.

All but 1 fish came on crawlers with just the tail blown and a bare red #4 hook. ( Took a while to figure out the tail blowing up trick) 1 was on a shiner and none on leeches or gulp.

Lots of fish suspended on reefs so next time up I will troll some sticks/cranks.

Dave can I rent the Cabin the night of the 14th and 15th? I would love to explore Rainy some more. Call me or Ill call you when I get back in town. Mil Lacs tomorrow.

Fishing with leeches had been really good and I would have used them on the last trip, but nobody in Fort Francis had any. I checked 3 bait stores in and around the Fort and nothing. Just glad they were going on crawlers and cranks..

Sincerely, SB
