      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 .

MAC- Leech Results

Recommended Posts

IMO, not really, it was conditional based from what I heard with a big cold snap the night before. Heavy fog the morning of indicates that. It's not that fish weren't active, just none were boated. I heard a few opportunities were there and not capitalized on and some fish lost before getting netted.

Only 10 teams. Turnout this year has been low. I almost did this one but after fishing the Mille Lacs event with only 12 teams I didn't bother. Ended up fishing the general area of Leech over the weekend and it was slow for us as well. Bluebird skies and high pressure is never that great for skllunngen'. We did see alot of fish and boated a few. No reason to sign off Leech as you will probably run into more favorable conditions. On a side note: Old school baits produced almost every fish and every follow over the weekend. Slow dive and rise presentations were the key.. Everything else was a waste of time.

I fished it. we had several fish going just no commitment. Fish were on rocks and weeds. I think all the teams were seeing fish. conditions could not have been worse.

Thanks for the report. I only have a couple of hours every morning (Family Trip), but it sounds like it might be worth at least one trip out to try some of the submerged rocks and maybe Sucker/Portage weeds.

I don't understand how anything reported here on a lake that size would keep you from trying...they eat everyday...so then, they are going, good luck!

No, I'm with you. I'll fish anywhere/anyplace regardless. Leech just has a tendency to pop around this time and can get hot for a couple of weeks.

The guy I'm going out with is a big walleye guy and no action now means more walleye fishing when we come up again in Sept. when the fishing should be better.
