      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 .

How was your open water season?

Recommended Posts

now that most guys and gals have put the boats away for the year we can look back and evaluate how the open water season went.

I will start by saying it was a summer of learning and trying new things. I learned how to fish slop bass, open water walleyes and finally starting to master the art of night fishing. i had some nice fish landed (already posted picts so i dont need to do that again) and all in all had a great time meeting new people from this site both on the water and in both Delaney's and Northern Bait. to all you guys who stopped and said hi, i would like to say thanks, it was a pleasure to meet all of you and put faces to screen names. ok enoough out of me lets hear how you did.

Well in between the multiple jobs and college I got out a few times and definitly had a blast with my guide, Jonah Winter. wink.gif Thanks hun! I caught my first wally at 28 inches, followed by several smaller ones as the fall/summer went on. I can't even explain the feeling I had catching that first fish. I can guarantee though that it won't be my last! Now that the lakes are finally freezing over and getting thick enough I hope to spend my Christmas Break out on the ice.

We're on the upper Crow Wing chain in the warmer months. This year varied quite a bit from our previous two up there. Water temps were already in the low 70's by Mermorial Day, so I think that had a lot to do with it. The bigger fish did not seem to be in the weeds in the late spring/summer. Also I rarely kept any fish this year; I might have kept an 'eye or some northerns when we had guests staying with us.

I had a fantastic day with Largemouths on a lake I rarely fish on Mermorial weekend. It seemed to be every other cast for a long while.

I had a great August day on our lake while trolling for Pike on the deep weedline. I think this was the only time I can remember clearly outfishing my father in-law who grew up on the River.

My walleye success was pretty low; still have a lot to learn it seems. I had some good days in late fall around the full moons, but that's about it.

I think I'm going to do some more open water trolling next year by using a small down rigger to get the lures down there consistently. Also I received an Aqua Vu for Christmas, so I'll be scouting structure locations in the spring time.

Even when the fish aren't biting, there's nothing better than being up there. Loons calling, dead calm lake at 10 pm, stars... Only 4 more months till the boat comes out!
