      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 .

shore fishing walleye

Recommended Posts

Is there any were in this(brainerd/nisswa and surounding) area that might be ok to shore fish for walleye .....and what would be a good way to go about it if there is (at the risk of much ridicule here I will admit I have never fished for walleye yet but I want to get into it or at least try to lol)

Probably the most effective method I've used for shore fishing walleye is a slip sinker and floating jig tipped with a minnow or leech. I used a BB split shot to set the minimum distance from the slip sinker to the floater. Usually about a foot or so to start and then vary from there.

One way I've done this was to cast it out and let it sit for a while with the bale open. This could be a few minutes or more. If you haven't had any takers in a while, very carefully pick up your rod and begin to very slowly drag the line in. I'm talking real slow here. The slower the better. It seems that I often got hit when the jig started to move. This works great on Lake Vermilion's Hoodoo Point if you ever get up there in the early part of the season. This can also be effective on rivers like the Cutfoot Sioux or St. Louis.
