      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 .

Fishing Report around Brookings area

Recommended Posts

Any one having luck fishing around brookings. My buddies and I have been fishing for a week with nothing to show for it. We have tried almost every lake imaginable but can't find any fish.

Thanks guys and good luck fishing.

Its kind of been a tough year for me around here. Haven't talked to anyone that has been having a real good year either. Fish seem really sporadic and hard for me to pattern this year. The only way I have had any success is setting up shallow during prime time and once that bite is done quietly hole hopping. If 8-12 inch walleyes are your thing, go to west 81, set up anywhere, and you will catch more than you care to. Other than that, I don't really have any help for you, hopefully someone else does.

I haven't been out myself, haven't even drilled a hole yet this year.

The weather has been tough, sounds like things were good last Friday with the pressure changes.

Looks to be the same thing going to happen this week, warm spell and then a front coming in. If I was to plan on going out Friday would be my day.

well looks like the forecast has changed again, I would say Saturday or Sunday would be the day to go out. Supposed to really cool down Sunday evening.

A few days in a row of stable weather, and fishing lakes with cloudy water has been key for us finding active perch during the day. Haven't targeted walleyes specifically until around 4 pm the days I've been out for walleye. A lot of guys have been doing good on walleyes from 3-5 in the afternoon, but my best walleye bites have been from 6pm to 9pm or later. The cleaner the water, the later in the day the walleye bite seems to be. I've had a few mornings I was on the ice by 7 and limited on walleyes by 8 am too.

Fished a couple of derbys this last weekend. Lake Poinsett/Poinsett Pounders weighed quite a few fish. Fished Willow Lake Lyons Derby on Sat. and it was a little slower but fish were brought to the scale. The wind really got with the program Sat. afternoon.

Any idea where they were getting Perch on Poinsett? Might head there tomorrow. Thanks

I was sitting on top of a pod of pike. Not sure where the perch were taken.
