      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 .

2nd weekend fishing report

Recommended Posts

fishuhalik

Well, finally got up. We started at Tamarack, didn't have a ton of luck, we only got 3 in about 2 hours, so we decided to head over to raven. Good decision. We ended up getting about 25 b/t 12 & 21", I think we kept about 15. After getting the crap beat out of us by the waves we decided to head over to stony. It was a rough start, but we found a great school of fish in 5 fow and ended up getting another 15 or so. Between the 3 of us we went through 2 pints of shiners, I'd say we missed about half of the hits. It seemed that they were really narrowed down this weekend. We tried drifting and picked up a few, but we definitely had our best luck marking bites on the gps and fishing those spots hard. We even had a couple of doubles! All in all a great weekend, my soon to be bro in law said it was his best day of walleye fishing.

HIGHBANKS

Sounds consistant with the reports I've been hearing - here's the latest... Boats have been lingering out in front of High Banks in 9' of water, pulling lindy rigs or a jig and a shiner. Another popular area to hit was Ravens along the west shore. Wind variation was a particular challenge - primarily shifting from the Southeast to Northwest. Spot tail shiners have been scarce - mainly using golden shiners, with some fisherman trying leeches. A high pressure system moved through on Friday evening causing a cold front and the bite to be a little irregular. If perch are your preference - groups have been pulling in 11+ inch perch in 3 ft of water just around Tamarack Point. Water temperatures dropped 5 degrees over the weekend due to the weather fluctuation. Temperatures should be stabilizing early this week to put things back on track.

limited out

Can't say we had the same luck. Fished numerous areas from Friday afternoon until Sunday with limited success. Got a few here and there but definitely not pounding them. Probably ended with around 50 for 9 guys but we did get a very nice collection of 10-12" perch which was a plus. Had the best luck on Tamarac point using lindy rigs.

It seemed that if we were getting perch just go another 2-3 ft deeper and there were the eyes. Also, one thing I've always found true on winnie is that if you're getting a ton of perch bites, the eyes aren't right there, but they're prolly close by. Once the perch bites stop, maybe a little deeper, watch out!
