      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 .

Big Sandy Lake Walleyes?

Recommended Posts

My folks have a cabin on Big Sandy, about 15 min away from McGregor. The first few years we fished the lake we could find the walleyes, mostly eaters. But lately it seems near impossible to find the fish. We have been using bottom bouncers with leaches, or draging rapalas. Any ideas? Especially for ice fishing since it is right around the corner

Ice fishing is really tough for the Eye's on Sandy.

Open water I stay shallow rarely deeper then 6' leeches and minnows work best, never had much luck with cranks.

Lot's of small eyes on BS didn't see many over 18" last year but there were quite a few 10"-14"s caught, we won't talk about all the pesky little Northerns.... cool.gif

I know it, those hammer handles are always around. It seems we've used the same type of strategy. Good to know we are not the only ones who have trouble finding them. Wish there was some trick to catching those walleyes. Well maybe this year will be the year we figure it out.

No offense, but has Big Sandy ever put out big walleyes? And if not, why? Its big, adequate depth, plenty of structure and appears to have relatively low fishing pressure, all the ingredients for a stellar walleye lake. It seems this lake has always been a bingo factory.

For walleyes, believe it or not I've trolled floating rapalas under the 65 bridge and done fair, nothing big. It is true that 6 - 8 ft is the ticket, also can try slowly trolling a lindy rig and crawlers in the summer time. Anything for Ice fishing on sandy and I am as lost as the next person.
