      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 .

Man, this mornings fishing was rough! I didn't have a day this miserable all winter and I don't think I was ever as cold!

We tried several spots on 3 different lakes this morning. At one of the stops, my friend had gotten 4 really nice Crappies in the 12 inch range last night and in spite of the weather, we were hoping they would be bumpin again this morning.

Well, the 3 of us threw everything we could think of at em, in a multitude of colors and even tried to temp em with crappie minnows....today was not the day...we had a few fish on, but I don't think they were crappies...little sunnies is more like it.

The only thing that was landed this morning....after a spirited battle on his behalf, a battle that had the drag screamin and the rod bent in a U shape.....(Just kidding)about a 2 inch long Crayfish that pinched a slow moving feather jig! frown.gif

Thats what we ran into also. A few of them were biting last night and then they shut off when the temp started dropping.

We were hoping that the weather wouldn't shut them down completely, but I guess it was wishfull thinking? Two days of sunshine and we'll be haulin, no doubt.

What month is it????? One thing I have been observing for the past several years is that the weather pattern seems to cycle in extremes of unusually cold to unusually warm at about a 3 to 5 week timeframe. If that holds true, opener should be mid 80's to low 90's. I just started a weather journal this year to record low-grade scientific data to bolster what have been foggy recollections so far.

I keep a journal, mostly related to fishing, but also has weather notes...

One thing you'll want to watch is the transpiration cycle...

In a backhanded way this weather might be a good thing... When the leaves bud and sprout early, the humidity goes up sooner in the year, before the high energy summer pattern of fast moving storms can come in.

What ends up happening is that all annoying 3 weeks of soaking rain in Mid to Late May.

And honestly... I'll take putting off Ice out by a week, if it means I don't have to spend the 3 prime weeks of Walleye Fishing in a soaking 48 degree drizzle.

      I just purchased the Humminbird Autochart Pro to use wth my Humminbird 999. After going through the 'installation guide' and the 'get started guide' that's included in the Autochart PC program, I can't find what I need to do to get this on my model Humminbird. Anyone have experience? Thanks, Paul

      Did well this morning on big bay with gold spinners. 24-26 feet off the edge of a reef. Decided since they were biting we'd try the west end to see if we could catch some big fish. Put up a big zero out there. Guess they behave a bit different from end to end.  On a small reef out west had a guy pull up on us, throw a marker right on the fish and camp out right there. Kind of tough to fish spinners when someone does that. What is the etiquette on this lake when someone does that? Just fish where you want even if you run right up on them or in between them and the marker? I see the thousand dollar  depthfinder in the back of the boat, just mark a waypoint and keep the marker in the boat man. Really grinds my gears. Whoops...sorry for the rant   Never had that happen on the east end though

      Coming up next weekend to pull up the docks for the last time. Yup, my brother-in-laws folks sold their place on Frazer Bay. They owned the beautiful place just west of the public boat landing.They are in their 80's and are going to stay put at their place on Arizona. Been coming up for 20 years and now I won't have a free place to vacation at. Going to have to do some surfing for rentals I guess. Anyways, how has the walleye fishing been? Guess the weather will be quite a bit cooler next week.  Thanks for all the help over the years!

      Not at all a typical fall this year; more like a July lately. When the weather cools down next week fish will again start to set up in their cold weather locations. The last two weeks I have found fish (walleyes) along thick green cabbage and coontail edges,  deep basin transitions along steep breaks, and also suspended over deep water chasing forage.  One thing that remains constant during this time of year, regardless of temp., is that the days are getting shorter and the weeds are dying. Key in on the remaining green weeds, if your targeting shallow fish, and utilize your electronics to find schools of baitfish in deep water, either free roaming basins, or just off steep breaks. Lots of patterns going on right now that are putting fish in the boat. HAVE FUN!
