      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 .

Got into some nice Perch 3 inches (not so nice) up to 12 inches (very nice) mostly were 9-11 inches, used Demons tipped with crappie minnows and Ratsos tipped with Double Waxies. I had also caught a nice Eye, with a Demon and a fathead.

I have had luck in Isle Bay using a #10 and #6 pink Shrimpos in everything from 8-14 feet of water. You will catch a lot of small 3" and smaller perch but there are some nice 11" and bigger as well. I finally figured out that using a bigger Shrimpo weeded out the smaller fish and allowed only the bigger ones to actually hang on and get hooked.

Darters and Raps are getting plenty of perch during the day. I have been experiementing with several different depths, baits and times during the last week. It seems on the SE side you can punch a hole and catch a perch at any time, size however is the riddle to solve.

Here are the various scenarios I've tried.

Darter, 15' during day - Small to large perch. If all small perch, switch to Rap, then Rap with Larvae tip in treble hook. If still small perch, change spot to deeper or shallower.

Darter, 7'. Decided after a bad night to try a favorite trolling pattern. After dusk, almost dark I couldn't get the Darter to hit the bottom for 15 min. Many medium sized perch. Usually at dusk in the 15' the perch disappear, maybe they go to 7'???

Tonight I went back to 15' and caught many small perch on the Rap with Larvae and then an 18" Walleye at 4:30. 3 more good bites that I lost, argg.

My snowmobiles are now back, so I'm heading out to some deeper humps. Hope for better results.
