      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 .

Rainy Report and graph question.

Recommended Posts

Fished

Red Gut Bay for crappies/Black Sturgeon Bay on Saturday. Did not do well for crappies. Marked plenty of fish, but only caught one. Went to NW bay on Sunday. Did much better, took a long time to find fish, but once we were on top of them, things went well, ended up wtih 21.

Question for anyone: In fall time, how can you distinguish crappies from other species. We marked TONS of fish, but only seemed to catch fish (crappies) with horizontal lines on the graph. Graphed plenty of horizontal clouds about 3 feet off the bottom, which I think are baitfish, because we caught other species instead of crappies. Anyone have a tip to distinguish crappies on a locator? Probably go back up to Rainy this weeeknd. Those crappies are addicting!!!

Anyone fish walleyes in NW bay in the fall????

Between last Saturday the 7th and Thursday the 12th we had 90 walleye over 21 inches caught and released with the largest being over 30. Most were caught on cranks, but as the weather grew harsher jig and minnow. Vince Allan-Amik Lodge

Wow, Vince. That is impressive. Any recommendations on specific locations or spots to try? Reefs? Deep water?

The fish were caught in mostly shallow water from 6 to 14 feet. The cranks where taildancers black/gray. I would also put on a bottom bouncer with chartruese blade spinner and a minnow, but leave a long snell.(biggest fish caught on that combo) I'm sure you won't have any trouble finding the productive spots.

Vince--

Did well for crappies again. Sometimes fast and furious, sometimes dead slow. Weird. There are so many fish on the graph in deep water in NW bay, it is amazing. Must be millions of baitfish crusing around there. There were times when the graph would sense fish as bottom. Did that happen to anyone? Vince, how did you make out?

      Dude, seriously just stay off the ice until its safer.  No fish is worth risking your life for.

       Ice is scary on blue. I was out last weekend fishing next to open water north end is kinda sketchy still my buddy has been there every day this week. Still cant get close to the points only 1 inch there. Thicker by north end but its all older ice from the first freeze lots of cracks. The bay to the east towards the points and whole south end were wide open last sunday. Had 4 inches right next to it we fished as close to the point as we could get. We were 40-50 ft from open water and we got one eye. But ive never been so scared on ice before it was cracking very badly very loud and could feel the ice shifting. The walk back to access in the dark had my heart pounding and i didnt tjink we would make it back without one uf us goin through but we did make it.
