      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 wonder how much effect it really has. Aside from shallow bays and the like, I suspect the temperatures have been fluctuating too rapidly to have much effect on water temps as a whole. It takes some time at higher temps to raise the volume in a lake a degree or two.

That's for sure. I bet the wind is having more effect than the temperature swings.

i went out today for roughly 5 hours...and only hooked one walleye. (...8 inches of walleye, uughh!) needless to say, i threw it back in the water. i've been out just about every other day since Opener, and I agree the fishing has been tough. i've netted 4 sheephead and 1 walleye in the last three outings. i've only heard of one person say they've done any good...my neighbor!

he went out yesterday (Sunday), and got 5 walleyes (one at 21.5") and 15 crappie. aside from his report...no one has been doing very well. i agree the weather has a lot to do with the bite...and the wind isn't helping either. actually the walleyes like the wind - it's me and my boat that doesn't. smirk.gif

i guess that's why they call it fishing instead of catching.

the rest of this week looks pretty funky weatherwise too.

My buddy and I did alright tonight. We went out on a metro area lake and fished an inside bend in about 15 feet, just outside the weed line. The wind worked to our advantage and we caught 15 walleyes and oddly enough there were a few bass and bluegills mixed in with the eyes. All the eyes were right around 13" to 15". We used up 2 dozen leeches and a pack of Gulp Leeches as well. The south wind today helped for us. We have been out three times since opener and found that the water temp really hasn't changed much, same lake all three times.

I was out yesterday, cloudy overcast, cool and between me and my bro inlaw we had 39 walleye, 1 pike and a sucker. This was an early season best for me grin.gif

I used to only go out on nice days but now that I enter tournaments I have to learn to deal with all sorts of weather.

Fishing has been tough for me but Ive been out everyday and 90 percent of my fish are vertical jigging or a few other forms of finesse type fishing. out of about 35-45 eyes I have caught already 10-11 of them have been nicer 19-23 inch fish. I caught the 23incher today on the MN river throwing raps in a foot of water. The other night we caught one but the boat broke down frown.gif
