      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 .

May 7, 2007, St. Croix River walleye season is in full swing and plenty of walleyes are available to be caught and are being caught, though reports completely vary from who you talk to. At the recent 50 boat field Beach Bar tournament on the St. Croix more than 50% of the teams had no fish to weigh while other anglers did well. In fact the Team of Farr/Johnson hammered out 40 pounds of walleye in this ten fish contest. The main issue with anglers that aren’t catching fish, from what I viewed is the light bite that the fish are using to take the bait, most anglers couldn’t detect the light bite. Walleyes are hitting leeches and crawlers with livebait rigs both drifted and trolled. I also know of the jig and minnow working in some instances with a vertical jigging technique. The biggest fish of the mentioned tournament was taken on a crankbait, so as you can see the options are open. The most consistent depths to find walleyes would be in the midteens. Smallmouth bass season is closed. Catfish season is open as it is all year long, but most catfish angling takes place when the water warms up more. Crappie fishing has been good as been reported by small handful of anglers, actually the St. Croix has very good crappie fishing and these fish go virtually untouched as most anglers pursue walleye. These river fish are interesting because they can be found on both rock with light current and in the typical lake locations of the shallows (early season) and docks. Water level is 678.0 and water temperature in 58 degrees. Keep catchin’ and have fun!
