      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 .

Question about the St. Louis River.

Recommended Posts

The last 3 to 4 years the river has been kicking my butt. No more big fish numbers as in previous years. Now it seems like all I catch is 8 to 10 fish per trip (9:00am-dark). If I remember right, the reports for the river the last few years have not been that great either. Anybody else having the same problem??? Also, what effect does the tide have on fishing. How close are the marker buoys to the spot they were in the previous year?

1st off the river last year was a whole different ball game, at least the 1st 3-4 weeks then it pretty much cleared up and evened out. Fishing was very good in June and part of July. If your getting 9-10 fish a day your doing better than most. Early in the year big numbers are possible but if your into July/August and you can get 10 decent eyes in a day your doing ok. Not great but ok.

As far as buoys they are never right on as you find on your GPS. Some years are closer than others. I would say a good guess would be within 10 yards of the last year.

As far as the sage (spelling?) tide and what effect it has if you could answer that question I think you could catch a lot more fish and win a lot of money on the river. Its hard to tell in the summer when the "tide" is in or out. I know in the winter that period where it seems to neutralize the flow fishing isnt that great. Usually when the current starts down river again I catch more fish. I really havent spent much time worrying about it though. I think you should worry more about what forage is hatching and where. That will put you on more fish than just about anything.

Have fun on the river I think its going to be a banner season this year.
