      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Walleye Help

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone I have never really fished for walleyes much but amd starting to try a little harder. The types of places I am fishing for them is around a weed bed at about 10-15 feet. Also on some small bars and humps(sunken islands I suppose). What type of walleye fishing would you suggest? Sorry if this is not a lot of information if you need more please let me know! Thanks.

I would first talk to some of the locals who fish the lake a lot to see what is working for them or ask the folks at the local bait shop. They'll usually get you started in the right direction. Don't ask for specific spots, just general info like type of bait and techniques.

Sounds like you're hitting the right spots (weedlines, humps, drop offs). Next, its just trying to figue out what the fish want. Try slowly trolling a jig or spinner with a leech, minnow or nightcrawler. Maybe try troll a crankbait. Try casting a jig or crankbait.

Time on the water with lots of trial and error works for me.
