      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 .

A couple ways to catch them!

In my last post I talked about this slow approach to taking the walleye in this late summer fish pattern (which is the hardest bite all season on the Croix). The slow slow approach works while the fast trolling crank bite will work as well. Today on a half day trip we caught walleyes both ways. I wanted to post this point so folks accurately keep their options open. A few tackle tips - colored hooks and Salmo Hornets.

Jim W., Did you make it out there?

I've noticed hook color does make a difference, week ago or so I was catching most of the eyes on tube jigs tipped with a crawler, now I'm rigging with moon glow or chartreuse #6s seems the ones I've been getting prefere this color over others, like red, gold,green, black or bronze, I use a fairly long leader 6 foot 4lb line spooled 6lb I havn't had any line issues going that lite, I don't ever fish line heavier than that lindy rigging, just can't horse the fish in.

We didn't have one depth because the holding depth varies, the eyes are up in 17 feet of water when the bite is decent or they can slide back into the deep into 30 plus feet when they are more neutral, the location was more important. But to tighten up the depth range where most came from I'd say 22 to 30 fow.

Steep drops are the key, search the edges of drops and deep humps for the presents of bait fish, then search for fish if none are located, moved to another location eyes will be where the bait is or close by, Once located vertical jigging can produce, slowly lift and drop get the bait infront of them, boat control is important.
