      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 .

Good bite going on Devils Lake

Recommended Posts

Devils Lake has been producing good catches of perch all winter. The size has been mixed...little ones and big ones... No real pattern. It does seem that some days produce heavier catches but it mostly just seems to be were you set up. If you set up over more bigger fish, you caych more bigger fish. They are really spread out in big schools in all of the usual places. No real secrects.

Access is still via foot, ATV or snowmobile. You are risking driving although there is some vehicular traffic.

Ice thickness varies greatly. I fished on 13 inches. I had reports of 7" ice on the same flat.

If you get your jollies from snowmobiling, this is the place top be. 124,000 acres or 200 suare miles of flat snow four inches deep. Let her rip!

The old expression "Shooting fish in a barrel" can apply to perch fishing here on Devils Lake.

Schools of perch can be very large, but consist mostly of inactive or at the least some more active than their "school mates". Sometimes the more active fish or fish of a larger size can be in a very small "room" in the school. If you find those better fish, your day can be quit enjoyable, set up in the wrong classroom and in can be very frustrating.

Some days it is like this. You just need to keep plugging away. I have said several times that small moves can be as productive as major moves. This weekend again proved this point.

Clients in one Otter caught most of the fish but the Otter 30 feet away produced very little. Circling around the productive shack did nothing to improve their luck. Changing set-ups did nothing either. It seemed the active fish were located directly below the one Otter.

Fish were present on the outer edges but they were not as aggressive as their schoolmates in the next classroom. They would not rise as fast as high and/or strike a bait as aggressivly.
