      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 .

5:45am started out at half moon trolling perch shad raps #7 & #5.By 7am we landed 9 over the slot all around 24-25".trolled in 4'-12' most of the fish came from 8-10'

About 11 am we had 1 20"

Next bite was on spider island.first pass we landed 3 17"-18".Next pass we went out a little deeper to find nothing but big pike.Made about 20 passes in 13' to finish up for a full limit.Trolling speed had to be 1.75-2mph

So we set up some big rigs for those big pike.several 5-8lb's no hogs to be had when your ready.Then we hooked into a musky right behind the boat when we were reeling up are lines to call it a day.After 15 minutes of fun it finaly got off.

This morning we slept in after a nite out.8 am we started out at half moon.1st pass we were forced to troll inbetween several boats bobber fishing.28"er right smack in the middle of the bobbers.60 yards on each side of us we could see 5 bobbers.We turned around went back on the same path.Another 27 1/2"er.All the boats lifted anchor and started to troll.No more fish so we moved into the bay.

Went to 2 #5 perch shads 12 nice jumbo perch in 7'.Several 6"-10" eyes & 3 pike all about 3-4lbs.

Trolled are way back to the cabin 6'-15'FOW 2 23-24"ers

Talked to a few guys trolling.The guys using dark green colors got fish.We passed the info on to a couple guys.Later on in the day we ran into 1 of the guys he thanked us he was headed in with a limit.Not sure what reef he was fishing but he pointed at half moon.He said all his came from the last marker.He had to almost hit the marker with the shad he said.He held a couple up with a big smile.

Finaly i got lunch it only costed me about a grand in gas to catch my lunch he said.After we got home and i looked at my wallet i now know what he was talkin about

      I just purchased the Humminbird Autochart Pro to use wth my Humminbird 999. After going through the 'installation guide' and the 'get started guide' that's included in the Autochart PC program, I can't find what I need to do to get this on my model Humminbird. Anyone have experience? Thanks, Paul

      Did well this morning on big bay with gold spinners. 24-26 feet off the edge of a reef. Decided since they were biting we'd try the west end to see if we could catch some big fish. Put up a big zero out there. Guess they behave a bit different from end to end.  On a small reef out west had a guy pull up on us, throw a marker right on the fish and camp out right there. Kind of tough to fish spinners when someone does that. What is the etiquette on this lake when someone does that? Just fish where you want even if you run right up on them or in between them and the marker? I see the thousand dollar  depthfinder in the back of the boat, just mark a waypoint and keep the marker in the boat man. Really grinds my gears. Whoops...sorry for the rant   Never had that happen on the east end though

      Coming up next weekend to pull up the docks for the last time. Yup, my brother-in-laws folks sold their place on Frazer Bay. They owned the beautiful place just west of the public boat landing.They are in their 80's and are going to stay put at their place on Arizona. Been coming up for 20 years and now I won't have a free place to vacation at. Going to have to do some surfing for rentals I guess. Anyways, how has the walleye fishing been? Guess the weather will be quite a bit cooler next week.  Thanks for all the help over the years!
