      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 .

Kevin,
I was wondering where you do most of your guiding at? Is it on the Minnewauken Flats or all over the lake? Also do you know if Haley's hump is accessible right now or are the pressure ridges not allowing people to get there? Two weekends ago I was on Bird Island and in Wolfords bay area, but was only able to pick up a few walleye. Would you suggest starting in a different area this coming weekend. Thanks for the help.
To Rick:
I am glad to see Devils Lake on the fishing minnesota page. Being a former MN resident I fished Red Lake quite a bit last year and the forums were nice to have. I like the fishingminnesota format so having Devils Lake on here is a big plus for me.

I haven't been fish for walleyes at all this year. The flats are dead for eyes. No one in any number is fishing there. It is real handy for me but... I fish the flats or the west bay during the open water period.

I fished for perch in the towers area last weekend and it was tough, a lot of smaller fish. But I think I did better than most. Bird was OK for perch until about last week. It was the big cold front moving in that shut them down. One day I drilled a dozen holes marked one single fish in 3 and decided to go home.

I fish for perch mainly in the main bay and black tiger. 40 foot in the main bay and 36 or so BT has been good so far. It depends.

I 'm going back to my usual spots. The fish are there, it's the fisherman job to get them to bite. Prior to the cold snap the fish were hitting in all the usual places for this time of year. It just take moving and luck to get on top of biters. If you don't get a riser in 5 minutes move. It doesn't have to be far, one hundred feet or so. And by all means fish slow and within the bottom 8 inches.

    • Got skunked. Gave up after the second day and went grouse hunting instead. Had better luck doing that
    • Real nice night Monday night.  International Space Station was doing a fly-by.  When it topped the horizon, it was over southeast Alberta and when it crawled into the earth's shadow it was over the east edge of Wisconsin in just a little over 4 minutes.  Not all of these have the same white balance setting.  I messed with it to see what I liked better.  The tree was light painted with a small LED flashlight.  Opinions and critiques are welcome.
    • I have a 3.2 L Cooks Essentials digital that I bought first. Not big enough. So I bought a 5.2L manual Bella. You definetly want to get a bigger one. As for manual or not.....less to go wrong with a manual. My Bella holds more food than the smaller one and works great. I use the Cook's Essentials only when I have 2 things to make. Plus the manual costs less. The Bella sells for about  $75. Digitals will sell for over $100. Four other members of my family now also have  them.
    • I guess I started this thread but never gave model name lol. I have the cozyna model air fryer its been great unit and so far non stick surface has been holding up well in dishwasher after every use. Super easy clean up.
    • We really didn't shop around much.... Just bought one off of amazon with good reviews
