      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 .

Locations for fall 'eyes and northern

Recommended Posts

Hookmaster

My son and I had a good trip up to Upper Red at the end of May. He asked me yesterday when we are going back. I said maybe towards the end of this month. What locations would we try for fall 'eyes and northern. Would it be working the shallows similar to the spring bite? How shallow? Would around the reeds be good for the northern? What baits for northern?

Fished yesterday the walleye fishing was slow but if you spend time you can get them. The pike are still on a tear and you can catch while trolling for walleye. Work the shoreline 5 to 8' watch you deptfinder and when you catch one work that depth. Cover lots of shoreline i like spinner with minnows. Lots of the fish are in the 15 to 17" range.

We too were on the lake yesterday with a couple of our guests. We headed out of found a hump and we worked that area, in approximately 10' depths. We caught our two walleyes each (which all were under 17, with a couple of throw backs in the 12-13" range), a couple of perch that were around 10", just one sheephead was caught and released, as well as a 32" pike caught and released. Minnows worked better than crawlers (the only thing I could catch on the crawlers was perch), some used jigs and others floaters (red, orange and chartruese), off the bottom doing a slow troll or drift. We didn't have time to troll for pike. Heading out of the public you do need to slow it down when heading into the lake as there was a spot that we found that was less than 2' in depth and had some rocks that both boats found, so don't kick it in until you are out there aways.

Do the 'eyes usually make a shallow run before freeze up?
