      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 .

Trail's End Resort Clearwater Pipestone

Recommended Posts

Heading up here for the first time next weekend for a quick 2 dads-- no family-- three day get away. We just like to catch fish. I like to catch smallies, but we aren't picky. Just want some action. Does anyone have any tips-- general depths, presentations. I understand that you can portage to a few connected lakes. We are willing to make the necessary hikes. Thanks for any info. Sam

The bass are on the beds right now on Clearwater. They should still be there next week too. If they aren't, then take the mechanical portage to Pipestone. It is a larger colder lake and they should still be on the beds up there. Walleyes are in 10-15 fow and minnows and leeches on lindy's and spinners have working good. Enjoy your trip and stop by if you get a chance when you are up. We are on Off Lake just before Clearwater.

We were on Clearwater last weekend. the resort owners told us everything was a little behind schedule due to the late spring. they said most of the walleyes were still on the north end of the lake.

We had our best luck, for walleye, just south of Voyageurs resort. Along a rock wall in 25'-28' FOW using 3/8oz firetigs tipped with a leech or half a crawler. We also caught a bunch of perch there too. Other people were having good luck slowly, slowly trolling lindy rigs with a single hook, no blade.

We didn't have any luck during sunny times (7am-7pm)

We saw a couple small mouth on rock reefs

Hope this helps.
