      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 .

I tossed a dart and it hit on whiteface for opener. I have fished it once before in the center finger. Has anyone fished the other fingers? Is it tough to navigate?I thinking that most fish will be up where the river dumps in. Any thoughts would be great.

I have a cabin on Island so usually Im fishing there but venture to boulder or whiteface when the traffic on Island gets to me. I think fishing on whiteface is better than island for sure and you do catch bigger keepers also. Most fish I catch on island are under 16" but whiteface seems to have a popular class that are 16" to 18". The structure of whiteface seems more fishable it seems easier to find fish unlike Island that has a lot of structure that doesnt hold fish. If I were you I would move my dart down and fish that other lake.

Just watch out for rocks. I was up at the cabin last weekend and the water is LOW!!!! Not to say it will be this bad on opener, but it wont be able to come up that much in 3 weeks.

Island is between 3' and 4' low. Which is higher than it was last year. The last two years we have got the rain we needed the last 2 weeks before the opener. We can only hope the same will happen this year. Or the tyee will stay in the garage for a couple extra weeks. Its even easier to drink barley pops when somebody else is drivin'!!!.

fisherlanding, with the water so low I do not think there will be much flow from the river. They might be up in that bay but I would look for shallow wind blown points and structure. There is a lot of structure and yes watch out for rocks. The locals mark some shallow reefs with jugs so watch out for them. good luck.

yukon, I didn't know if the walleyes tried to run up the river or not. I was thinking at the mouth of the river as a staring point. I'll check it out but I think you might be right with the water level being low. Have you ever fished the east or west finger before? Are they worth checking out? What about near the dam? Just looking for a few places to try you know. laugh.gif

I have never spent a lot of time over by the dam. Most of my time has been in the middle finger. I have never had to stray far from the campground access to find walleyes

      I'll also be up this weekend. Fishing Friday and Saturday and putting the boat away on Sunday. Where are people finding the eyes and what are they biting on? Jigs, rigs, slip bobers? I don't do led core or jigging raps. I'll be on Daisy Bay, so any place from Big to Frazer is in play. Thanks!

      I went hunting with river rat this morning. I got two drake woodies and Chris got one. Finn was being a pain in the butt and would not fetch Chris’s duck. Finn however fetched both of my ducks. Finn flushed a bunch of woodcocks on our walk out. Finn got muddy today

      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
