      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 .

Looking to get a lake chip this year for graph. Does anyone have an opinion on what chip is best for Otter Tail Lake and Otter Tail County? thanks

Lakemaster Minnesota has OT on it and it works fine for me.

We have Navionics Premium North, and it is pretty good. But we have heard good things about Lakemaster MN, so we are going to compare and if it might be worth getting that.

I know Navionics has Pelican, OT, Battle and other bigger lakes, but our year is missing some of the smaller ones, and Lakemaster might have more lakes.

The new navionics has a lot more lakes than the lakemaster but they are just DNR maps put into the digital chips. The lakemasters i have found are a little more accuarate on the lakes it has. Lakemaster also has OT and Pelican and some other ones, im not sure what ones but you can look on thier site to find what lakes are on the new chips.

Holy smokes is the Lakemaster awesome on OT.

I have ice fished with Gissert and his LM chip a couple times on OT, and that Lakemaster is just out of this world.

Had not checked the post and saw 22 responses, awesome I thought until I got to about #6 and the tread was hijacked by dem dar dirty minded menn.

Looks like Lakemaster is the way to go. Any other input would be greatly appreciated since it appears there are new chips out this year.

Ah, the Jerky and ChuckN show, LOL. It is even better in person.

You will not regret the Lakemaster chit for OTL. I have a lot of hours using mine on the ice, and have been very satisfied.

      Can anyone report on fishing on Rainy River this week?
    • Tony S
      Headed up this weekend for the first trip of the fall.  Thinking about fishing the lake with all the good reports from there, but has anybody been up to Clementson, Frontier or Birchdale  areas recently that could give a report?  Thanks.

      VG, Good bite most days now! All minnows for me. jigs or lindys. Chubs, shiners, and pike suckers. Found walleyes from 8' to 40' yesterday. Cliff

      Thanks for chiming in and sharing how the river has been treating you lately. They sure are fun to catch. I am hoping to get out again this weekend for some more smallie action. Hopefully they are still near where I was able to find them last weekend....

      I fish pretty much exclusively above the Sartell dam.  I normally try to hit it 2-3 times per week.  Over the last 3 weeks, I thought the fishing was down right ridiculous(even with the crazy high water) at times, 12-20 fish in a hour or two before sunset.  I found them right up on the bank, and of course in slower moving water.  There are a few spots north of the dam that are great places for high water.  Some larger areas where the water can swirl around and create backwash.  In fact, I'll point my boat down right and put spot lock on, because the water is flowing back up river, and just cast parallel with the bank.  Most of the time I'll throw a Scatter rap, then when I see a fish chasing bait, I'll throw out a wacky rig.   I went out last weekend to a spot I've been hitting, and the fish have diminished big time.  Caught 6 in a couple hours.  Then I went out last night, and caught one walleye.   So, with that in mind I figured they had to of gone to the deeper rock piles.  And, sure enough, I caught 2 just before sunset, then I headed in.   If you have SI, just drive down or up river and look for large groups of rock piles.  Go up river from them, and try and do a controlled drift over the rocks.  I normally use a jig and a tube.  And there's no mistaken them when they hit.   Even a few eyes mixed in every once in a while.

      Headed up for one last weekend of open water fishing.  Anyone been out this week, how’s the bite?
