      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 .

We went up Thur. night but did not go out. Just too windy and dark. Parked at Cove access and went out the next morning. Didn't have to go in to the main lake as the eyes were in the rocks on the way out of Cove bay. Drifted in 8 to 10 feet of water with drift sock and spinners. Took us a while but limited out on 18 inchers with one 20" and one 32" Northern. There was one other boat with three people. Talked to them after drifting by each other a dozen times or so. They got out a little earlier and almost had their limit at that time. It was a nice day Friday, a little windy even in the bay but caught about two fish an hour till 3:00 in the afternoon. Wound up staying out till about ten that night and bobber fished with no luck. Small red spinner tipped with a leach on a 3' to 4' snell red hook and I mean a small spinner, smaller than a dime. My wife had the only spinner that size and color and out fished me at least two to one. I tried numerous other lures and spinners but kept coming back to red and small. The wind was blowing pretty good into the rocks with little perch hammering your leach constantly. Fished right next to the boat with 1 oz barrel sinkers above the spinners. Lake is at least two feet low. Dinged both props. Garrison, Casino, and Cove accesses are very bad. Glad I didn't try launching at night before I saw the shape they were in during daylight. I guess the moral of this story is that you don't have to go very far to catch fish on this lake. Just watch the wind and bottom structure and use the basic techniques. Good luck smile.gif

      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!
