      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 .

Is it just me or have others noticed that the number of people fishing on Vermilion has dropped significantly since the slot was imposed last year?

That sure wasn't the case on the opener. You should have seen the flotilla of people playing bumper boats in Pike Bay. I have seen a crowd there before, but nothing like that crazy.gif

seemed like there were less folks on the west end...not near the boats near the dam, Birch Narrows, etc..as in the past. And...Sunday was great! Big walleyes...a lot of 22 and up fish.

I was fishing Frasier Bay, Retreat Lodge, Smarts Bay, and Wolf Bay and there were significantly less there, especially west Frasier bay.

I had one of my favorite opener spots all to myself for about one hour,then I got surrounded by at least 20 boats!

Plenty of fishermen on Sat! shocked.gif Not nearly as many on Sunday though.

deadsea,

I think this year the boats were not as scattered as last year. More than likely same amount as previous years it just seemed like boats concentrated more in this area or that area. I fished the west end and you could see mini flotilas as opposed to last year where you would see 2 boats here two boats there etc.

We stayed a Hoodoo this year and there were quit a few open sites for the opener. I think the $3+ a gallon scared a few off. Hope this does not continue, I know alot of you folk make or break your year in about a 3 month time frame.
