      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 .

rigs for eyes on Carlos

Recommended Posts

I will be up on Carlos mid July… Now I know some spots that folks recommend for walleyes but what I am wondering is what are some good setup’s to catch some of them boys… I did not have a whole lot of luck last year, but it sounds like the fishing was a bit slow when I was up there… I am not looking to fish too hard but I would like to let my daughter have a chance to catch some walleyes for a fish fry… We had a pretty good sunny and crappie fry last year… Thanks in advance…

One of the best ways for Carlos is to drag a leech with a lingy-rig. You can cover some water until you find some active fish. If you know some "spots" as you say, you can also vertical jig with a fat-head or shiner. Sometimes you may have to fish deep too. Carlos is the deepest of the area lakes, and some anglers have had success jigging in 40-50 feet. (I've never been one for deep jigging...).. The 'eyes will suspend sometimes as well. So trolling rapalas over deep water can be a useful pattern to try as well.

Keep checking the board here...as summer moves along you'll get some more ideas....we'll keep you posted.

Yep, Ghoiterman's got it. A Lindy Rig with a leech works on Carlos. Especially that time of year. You may need to slow your presentation down to a crawl and get out into the 20+ foot range, too.

Ghoiterman, I know someone who caught a wallhanger of a walleye on Carlos during mid-summer, where the fish was suspended 60 feet down in 120 feet of water. shocked.gif Sounds like lake trout, huh?
