      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 the West Side - Where are the Walleyes?

Recommended Posts

Freddy-C

I'm heading up to Vermilion the first week in September and I'm staying near Black Bay. In the past I've stayed at Vermilion Dam Lodge but this year we've decided to try somewhere different (not that we didn't like VDL, we did but thought it would be fun trying a different part of the lake). Can anyone tell me where the Walleyes have been lately and where I can expect them to be in a week (humps, weedlines, points, depth, etc...)? The past few years we were only successful at dusk and low light periods. Any and All help is very much appreciated! Thanks!

Just got back on Sunday after 8 days on the Big V. Spent 3 days trying to figure the whole thing out. I tried every point rock hump on the west end. Finally.......Connected on the walleyes. All of the fish we caught were on the transitions from 17' going down to 24' . The fish were suspended off the bottom about 3-5'. Used a 6-8' Lindy with a Orange hook. Hit the Night Crawler with some air to get it off the bottom. I tried using floating lindy's but the fish didn't respond. Plain hook and crawler was the ticket. Ended up taking home some fish and had a great fish fry one night. My 10 year old daughter even got her first walleyes. Dad was quite proud cool.gif

Biggest fish for the week was 24" We only threw back 7 fish over the slot.
