      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 .

fish early morning and late evening

try leeches and crawlers on a lindy rig with a red of chart. bead with a red or chart hook and a 2 foot leader.

but first off you should motor around the whole lake and see where there are changes in the bottom and where you mark fish.

We got a lake like that here. Get the baits away from the boat, rods straight up. Fish what you can find for structure, sometimes the windblown shore. When you catch one open its gut and find out what its eating. Good Luck.

First and foremost, I'd locate the schooling bullheads or whatever the primary food source is. I'd also ask the local farmers where, if any, tiles are fed into the lake. Focus on those areas after a fresh rainfall.

Schools of young bullheads? They often school in tight bals in open water. I've done well pulling crank up in the water column through the clouds of bullies.

With the low water clarity, fishing during the would also work will. Use in-line planer boards to get your out to the side of the boat. Also baits that may give off a little rattle or moe noise may being more action. And yes speed up your pace. If your not using planer boards, go as fast as your baits will allow. Don't worry walleye can fish faster then you think, 4-5mph may seem to fast, but they can catch up quickly to grab a bait. Snap trolling also works well this time of year. they still have to feed in shallow lakes.
