      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 .

Best Early October Trip for MN Walleyes

Recommended Posts

Looking to take a 3-4 day weekend trip during the first two weeks of October for fall MN walleyes. What area and/or lakes and nearby resorts top your list for that time of year? We prefer jigging and lindying. Thanks in advance for your input!!!

Although I'm a diehard Winnie/Cutfoot guy, honestly, Lake of the Woods is nothing short of phenomenal, especially IF the shiners have come in to the Gap/4-mile Bay/River area. If you hit it just right, and the big girls have moved in to feed, you may never catch as many trophy fish in your lifetime!!

TO,

I've seen you mention the Federal Dam area several times on this board. I also fish up in Portage Bay quite a bit in the fall, but usually am after muskies and don't have much experience with the walleye and perch bite this time of year.

Next weekend I'm taking a friend up there who hasn't fished much before. We'll fish some muskies, but I'd also like to find a little more action with a few walleye or perch.

Would you mind offering a little advice? I'm not looking for specific spots, just a few tips on getting started so I can keep my fishing partner interested. Is there a certain depth to look for or are the fish scattered? What presentation and bait should I start with?

Is it as simple as fishing the breakline just outside the bouys at federal dam with all the other boats?

Any advice would help! Thanks.

TO,

Would you be willing to share a little info with me too? I was up there the same time frame as you last October but didn't have anywhere near the success you had. My family and I are heading back this year from October 9th through the 18th.

Thanks,
