      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 .

I have never fished 7th, but 5th and 6th a fair amount. Walleyes seem to be found on 5th around the "sunken" island. Fairly easy to find - there should be some grass growing up. Sometimes there is a milk jug there as a marker. Also - there is a point with rocks/sand that drops to around 16 to 20 feet. The island is more on the northwest portion of the lake. The point is on the southeast side. Best luck on 6th for walleyes is where the river come into 6th from 7th - the entire bay only gets about 14 feet deep or so and early in the year the walleye seem to be in that bay and along the shore to the south of the bay. There is a resort there and when we are up on ealry June, lots of boats fishing in that bay. Also - there is a point as you enter the bay the can be good.

Not much on the crappies - but have found them in the reeds and pads early in the year. The point on 5th and 6th are good, so is some of the back of the bays. There is a lot of small stumps, sticks, etc. close to shore for spawning and we see a lot in these areas. Just before going into 6th from 5th on the right or east side can be good. We target a lot of bass when we go up, but fish some walleye and crappie also. Some nice northerns, but there is a length limit - 40 inches I think.

We left plenty of fish to be caught later in the year! Fishing was slow with a few small Northerns and a few nice sunnies caught. No 'eyes. Weather did not help - or maybe it was a lack of talent? grin.gif There is always next time.
