      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 .

High All!

The wife and I will be spending 2 weeks at Pine Trees Resort the first 2 weeks of June. The wife is worried about the may fly hatch, when does this usually happen? We usually spend 1 week a year On big V. But it is usually in September. Will the things I do in September still be a viable option in early June?

Thanks and good fishing!

Last year that period was very slow for me. The weather was very hot and calm and the mayflys were staging to hatch but the weather conditions were not right so they just stacked up in the water column.

Most years that does not happen though.

Cliff and all:

It appears a cold front will be coming through for Memorial Weekend. I have traditionally had challenges with cold fronts on Vermilion. I have decent electronics, but wondered if there is a general rule, i.e. slow and deep, etc.

Thanks for any insight

PSU,

You nailed it! wink.gif

Slow and deep with lindy rigs. 5' to 6' snell, minnows or leeches,

Preferably in mud or mud/sand transition areas.

I could swear I saw small mayflies last Friday. BTW, the fish were biting very well from 5' to 37' of water.

PSU do you slip bobber around your place at all? It can be a fun effective way to fish when they aren't jumping in the boat....

We've started to but usually during the day. I think you said last year that night was pretty decent for walleye. Confirm? Sort of tough sometimes with the kids, games, and refreshments flowing.....We you up for opener? I saw some folks around your dock but never stopped by.....always a bit too much going on.

Funny you should ask, how did you know we were using leeches?

Actually, we caught fish on fatheads and leeches. Most of the bigger fish came on leeches, but you dont seem to get as many fish on the small end. So if you wanted action, small minnows were the key, if you wanted quality, leeches were good.

You are right. There have been a few small mayflys hatching this week. They are not the ones that cover the lake surface though. They are an early season varity.

It appears that some people don't beleave that the wife is worried about the hatch. as much as hate cleaning that black tar of my boat its a black & gray lund so it does'nt show up to much. But I cant get the wife out if the flys are sworming. Maybe that can be a good thing! grin.gif

I did some research. You like your leeches and I remember last summer you commented on early season leeches.
