      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 .

Ok, time to pick the brains of all you "old timer" walleye guys about area lakes. Where would you look for walleyes in the area lakes this time of year? Not looking for any pigs, I need a mess of fish for a fish fry. I know the gills are on the beds, but I need boneless fillets, thats why I am asking about lakes since the river has a 2 fish limit.

My fishy sense tells me to look for mid lake rock piles or humps in 20 fow and start there but i could be wrong.

Start HERE Wade.

Jigs, spinners and slip bob the islands, shorelines, and points. Cold temps at night will put the eyes on the breaks and make it a morning and evening bite. Slow presentations and lite bites.

Whiteface is good. Some guys I know have been doing great up there. Shallow and slow. Pick up some rattle jigs and pop some chubs or shiners on them

Island Lake for all the 11-13' eyes a guy could want.

Live bait rigs and light jigs.

Slow and shallow is what I found to be the ticket. No walleye came from deeper then 10 feet of water for us on Fish Lake last weekend. Jig and minnow worked best but a leech I am sure will do just fine. Perch are all over the place, move out a little deeper if you want them.

Were any of the fish caught on the flats??

Location doesn't seem to be as important as depth. We caught fish on several different areas of the lake but being shallow was the key. Get close to shoreline with some wind around 7:30 and there should be some fish around.

But we did end up finding a few in very shallow water in the middle of the day so if you work for them you can find them all day long.

Went out and could not get a hot pattern for eyes. They're using the whole lake right now, shallow and deep.

Better your odds by fishing the bite in the evenings.
