      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 .

Hoping someone can give me an updated water temp or tell me if the lake is close to turning over. I have a trip planned for this weekend, but would reschedule if the lake is in the process of turning over. Any and all information appreciated.

Thanks

53orbigger thats all I ask!

Surface water temps are running in the mid to upper 50's this week. Colder weather is predicted for the rest of the week. Turnover has not occured yet.

Thanks for the update Cliff! Looks like we might be able to sneak this trip in before turnover.

I think that the lake may have started to turn over on Sat. afternoon. The walleye bite slowed down and I caught a few scattered fish as deep as 49 feet yesterday.

Average Big Bay temp. was 55 degrees all day yesterday.

Cliff, I agree, I do believe it was starting to turnover. I was getting hits at 50 fow when I was in the area that we saw each other later Sunday morning. That one bonus fish made it all worth while. Would have like to seen the other one that broke me off. See you soon I'm sure. Kind of sad on Sunday I had to pull the boats out so they can remove my boat lifts. The Crestliner is still there, who knows I may get the bug to run back up. Work stuff can always wait, as it will be there when I get back in town. Later Darrell.

The turnover does not have a long lasting affect on the fall bite.

They should be biting very good again by the time you get up.

I agree on the turnover. Things really slowed over the weekend, but today the bite was really on good. All of our fish were from 46 -50 FOW. The biggies were on also.

Roger f,

Welcome to FM and the Vermilion Forum! laugh.gif

If you are fishing the East end, look for deep basin holes up to 60 feet deep and work your way down into them SLOWLY with a jig and minnow.When you get a walleye work that general depth until the bite quits then start searching again.

If the deepest hole in the bay you are fishing is only 30 feet deep work it the same way!

Good fishing!

Cliff
