      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 .

W,

We fished the on Saturday and had great results.

One of our favorite spots is near an island with a shoreline which runs North to South. The adjacent area is a basin of 40 foot water. There was a strong North wind that day, so we started a controlled drift at the North end of the island, using the bow mount trolling motor to control our speed and direction.

We used one ounce bottom bouncers fitted with a chartreuse spinner and half a crawler. We worked the bouncers directly below the boat in about 29 feet of water. Over the course of three hours we caught 40 fish, including two 17’s, two 18’s and a 19. Mixed in were plenty of 15-16’s and no wieners.

Water temp was 59.

Have fun,

Berng

My wife and I spent last week on Rainy in a houseboat and the fishing was pretty slow for us. The weather probably figured into it, affecting the fish and also keeping us in camp more than I would have liked. The scenery was great though, both fall colors and wildlife.

We fished mostly near Big Island, SE of Brule Narrows, hitting mid lake reefs, and island points and flats. We marked a lot of fish between 50-70 ft, but no concentrations shallower than that. We pulled up small sauger from those depths, so the walleyes should of been shallower, but we couldn't find them. We tried drifting the shallower flats, even though we didn't really graph anything, just to check it out. We did catch fish, but mostly only small ones, far and few between.

I'm sure that Rainy has good fishing based on this and other forums, but it didn't work out for us last week.

I would highly recommend spooling up with Fireline or some other no stretch line. If you end up fishing deep you will need it to feel what is going on way down there.

Jeff

Just got back from woody's. Fishing under the bridge on friday yeilded a couple of 22's and a 26.5 with many eaters. The wind was fierce out of the east and this was the only place for shelter. Saturday the wind shifted from the north east to the north and so we wondered out towards 3 sisters. Only one over the slot that day. Seems like a few people were pulling plugs with about the same angling success we had out by the blinker. Conditions were tough but we were able to adapt.

Hi Serti

Just got back from Houghton late last night. Had my favorite dinner......a Pat's IGA pasty. Thought about pulling the boat up for after the meeting, but the weather forecast was not so favorable. I wounder if the PWT has had an impact on those piggy fishing ground. Had some real good success in the fall back in the day. Stoped in at moi's house. He is doing well. Talked to Brian Hannon...He's promoting the clean snowmobile challenge amoung other things. Brought back some of Peterson's smoked trout for the wife.

The fishing back in phobe and grace was not nearly as good as I remimber. Wow the traffic back there, you were absolutly right about it being a busy weekend. Weather was extremely hot, tough to find deep water on those lakes. Good to here from ya, If you need an excuse give me a call. vizanko@aol.com
