      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 .

If you're in the Underwood area, I would go to Ottertail first.

Lots of structure, and lots of walleyes. They do tend to run a bit small. This lake has everything, shoreline breaks, mid lake humps and flats, and good night trolling.

The night trolling is usually a July and later bite.

The shore breaks are sometimes very far off shore. There are big expansive sand flats and some cabbage beds that hold perch (and walleyes too).

From a boat:

I've had better luck starting out really shallow, like six feet, and if I find nothing there go really deep, like thirty feet. When shallow I try jig and minnow or leech and deeper I use bottom bouncer and spinner with a crawler.

Shore fishing:

Walleyes will absolutely hammer small crankbaits in the shallows after dark. Find a spot with deeper water nearby and preferably rocky or gravel shoreline and if possible with moving water. Find a small crankbait that looks like a shiner minnow. Speed can be crucial so if you have moving water check which direction the current is moving. You will reel slower against the current than with it. Start with a steady retrieve. If nothing happens with that, crank it in a little and then snap the rod tip hard a couple of times. This makes the crankbait dart in different directions a couple of times and looks like its wounded. Sometimes this will trigger the most violent strikes.

Good luck!
