      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 .

Is the fishing still good on the river on opener or would I be better off heading out to the main lake? I am thinking of doing an opener trip since I missed the spring fishing but never have fished the Rainy during opener. I am sure it's combat fishing by then

You never really know about opener. A lot depends on the weather between now & then. Sometimes we catch well in the river and sometimes we run down and hit the outside of Pine Island. Lots of variables but usually find fish somewhere.

As far as a crowd, the only time I have seen much was the dog & pony show for the gov. a couple years ago.

Satchem,

Like the Dutchman said it depends on environmental factors. I have done real well down in the silver creek, clementson, birchdale, and manitou areas on opener, but I have also done poorly too. Fishing at the mouth of the Bigfork, Littlefork, and up by the dam at International Falls is generally good. 6-18 feet of water is generally the best.

Royal Dutchman , ( or anybody ) do you have any info on Musky Fishing on the Rainy River ? I fished Walleyes at ice out a few years back so I know there are a few Walleye but can't remember if I have heard anything about Muskies up there . Thanks .

I had something huge hit a 18" jack I was skipping into our dock a couple of years back. Didn't get a good enough look to say and there are up to 25lb. jacks around but always liked the idea that it was a muskie.

Have had several guests bring back stories & pictures of muskies while walleye fishing. Mostly at the upper end by the dam.

I have heard and seen posts referring to muskies in the Big Fork. Don't think you'll want to try that in anything other than an airboat or canoe until the water comes up. Try a forum search and see what you come up with.

I know there are those who are more informed on the subject than I. Good Luck!
