      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 .

Water Temps and fish

Recommended Posts

Deadwood

Hit the river Tuesday and Wednesday with water temps hovering around 40 degrees Tuesday, and warming up yesterday to nearly 44 by mid-afternoon. Tuesday the walleyes and saugers were popping the jig/minnow combo fairly steady with the two of us boating 30-35 fish, and missing more than that in 3 1/2 hours. Yesterday mid morning we returned to the same spot, caught a few walleyes and a few saugers by noon, but by noon the water temp was rising.

After the noon hour the walleye and sauger were replaced with catfish and sheephead - somebody flipped a switch. I've always heard of this happening, but to experience it first hand was quite an eye opening experience. Kind of amazing how just a couple degrees in water temp will affect the bite and what is biting.

Deadwood,

What depth and what kind of structure was the most productive?

14 feet of water has been a pretty consistent depth with catching fish as of late. We work the 'shelf' around 14 feet of water and concentrate our efforts there. The stretch of river we are fishing ranges in depth from 6 feet to a 27 foot hole, and the fish seem to be riding the 14 foot ledge gathering up food.

Structure as of late has been anything that will attract bait fish, not one specific type of structure stands out from the rest. Whether it be wood, rock, a hole, or whatever - as long as there is some type of structure is seems to be holding fish.
