      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 .

Thinking about visiting some family over that way and they suggested all of us camping at Bray or Daly park. Any one have any thoughts on either one? And, which would you rather fish...Bray/Madison Lake or Daly/Lura Lake?

I don't know either lake so if the parks are a horse a piece then the better lake for fishing will be the deciding factor.

Thanks

Bray is a nice park and your a stones throw away from the water.

If you are talking now or soon, I'd recommend Bray. Lura is weeded over (only about 9 feet deep max). Bray will be full, but they may let you camp in the over-flow. Both are very nice parks. Bray will be more busy on weekends since it is a more popular lake with a nicer beach (and closer to kato).

Sounds like Bray is the clear choice. Have to see if there is any room at the Inn so to speak.

Thanks all for the info. wink.gif

I seen that on the Mn Bass Fed club schedule, Northern Black Bass,I believe it was.. good less pressure for the weekend,I heard it was a "hayfield" anyway so im not sure what to ecspect. I remember the first championship tournament I had down there in 05 when SMBT WAS R.C.L.A , when they got all that rain the night before. the water was high and dirty, so i hope the rain holds of for now.

By the way are you a support rep for minnkota or just hummingbird? i need a small part for my trolling motor and don't really want to drive all the way over there for a shaft adjustment knob!

just got back from lura fishing was at best poor in my book,

put aprox. 8 fish in the boat all weekend. the high winds kept me off fishing most of the more productive spots. There is a lot of pond weed through out much of the lake. and ony about 5' of water on the inside weed lines if at all I would wait till mid july before i would head back there

      Did well this morning on big bay with gold spinners. 24-26 feet off the edge of a reef. Decided since they were biting we'd try the west end to see if we could catch some big fish. Put up a big zero out there. Guess they behave a bit different from end to end.  On a small reef out west had a guy pull up on us, throw a marker right on the fish and camp out right there. Kind of tough to fish spinners when someone does that. What is the etiquette on this lake when someone does that? Just fish where you want even if you run right up on them or in between them and the marker? I see the thousand dollar  depthfinder in the back of the boat, just mark a waypoint and keep the marker in the boat man. Really grinds my gears. Whoops...sorry for the rant   Never had that happen on the east end though

      Coming up next weekend to pull up the docks for the last time. Yup, my brother-in-laws folks sold their place on Frazer Bay. They owned the beautiful place just west of the public boat landing.They are in their 80's and are going to stay put at their place on Arizona. Been coming up for 20 years and now I won't have a free place to vacation at. Going to have to do some surfing for rentals I guess. Anyways, how has the walleye fishing been? Guess the weather will be quite a bit cooler next week.  Thanks for all the help over the years!

      Not at all a typical fall this year; more like a July lately. When the weather cools down next week fish will again start to set up in their cold weather locations. The last two weeks I have found fish (walleyes) along thick green cabbage and coontail edges,  deep basin transitions along steep breaks, and also suspended over deep water chasing forage.  One thing that remains constant during this time of year, regardless of temp., is that the days are getting shorter and the weeds are dying. Key in on the remaining green weeds, if your targeting shallow fish, and utilize your electronics to find schools of baitfish in deep water, either free roaming basins, or just off steep breaks. Lots of patterns going on right now that are putting fish in the boat. HAVE FUN!

      Tomorrow is the big day for duck hunters!! May you all get up early and find your spot filled with ducks.

        Fall is very nearby and things are going the way they should.  Fishing is good, it is too windy and the water is cooling down quickly.....On this weeks report and important bit on our very own Aquatic Invasive Species......Enjoy it!
