      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 .

5/12 report

Recommended Posts

Stratosman

Hit the water at roughly 6:00 a.m. Fished one of my good early season spots, bite was on right away but shut down about 8:00, We were wishing we got out there earlier. Managed 4 walleye/sauger and a few accidental smallies. And a couple of lost fish. One nice eye at 24" and the others around 16". Fished south of the Kinni a ways on a steep sand break, leeches on a 12" snell did the damage.

There were ALOT of boats heading up to the Kinni narrows and points north. About 8:00 alot of those boats were moving around and back south towards P city.

Hoping to jump out there again during the week. Maybe Thursday?

We hit the river around 8:15 and we were one of those boats that headed north of the Kinni. Trolled cranks up through the Kinni with no success and then headed up to Hudson. Tried crawlers, spinners, cranks and jigs and the only things we could muster were some sheepies and a big ol silver. Gave up there and headed down to a rock pile that produced nothing trolling cranks. One more stop south of Afton where we finally got to see what a walleye looks like. We ended up catching three in about 5 minutes in an area the size of the boat (one was 19" and the other two were short). By this time I figured catching a pile of fish was not in the cards so it was as good of a time as any to head home. Still a great day to be on the river. Ran into Riverdancer and it sounds like they hadn't done too poorly that morning.

I headed to the franconia access in hopes of catching some pike in the backwaters...couple more weeks with no rain and the backwaters are gonna be completely high and dry. I would say the river was about 2 ft low from normal levels, so it'll be really tough going in the summer. Action was really slow, between 3 people we caught 5 fish total...2 pike, 2 smallies, 1 white bass.
