      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 .

Night report - 10/4

Recommended Posts

Blaze

Headed to the south end of the lake Weds night to pull cranks. Hit the water about 5pm and scoped out some new rock/gravel spots til dark. We checked from 8 to 26 FOW and only marked a few fish in 16 FOW during daylight, but not many in ML terms.

First fish hit in 6 FOW right at sunset as we crossed the top of a reef, so we keyed in on shallower water. Long story short, we ended the night with 20-some fish with 80% coming in 3-6 FOW. No pigs - the biggest was a fat 22".

Lessons learned:

- 1.8 +/- seemed to be perfect speed. We used bow troller (calm winds by 10pm) to stay in the prime range. Tried 1.0 to 2.5mph to change things up.

- size 14+ floating raps and HJ worked best. We landed one 16-17" fish on a size 18 floater - it was half the size of the fish!

- no fish caught with less than 80' line out.

- fish hit ALL NIGHT - we fished past 3am and they were still going strong.

What a great night - clear skies, calm wind, and good cigars! wink.gif

Hope your next trip is as enjoyable as mine was.

SW or SE? It sounds like you were primarily on rocks. Did you try any weedlines? Sounds like a great trip.

SE side - wind pounded us til dark, then it died off, thankfully. We didn't work the weedlines much simply because we started hitting 'em on the rocks right away.
