      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 .

Fished below a dam yesterday. Only had two hours to fish, but! Since I was fishing from shore the wind was a BIG problem!!! Had lots of hits, but with such a bow in my line hook sets stunk. Did manage two walleye( a 14 and a 10)one little crappie, and a couple of small bass. Not bad for one of my last outings for the year.

From shore only saw two fish caught. One small walleye and my HUGE 8 inch Northern!! grin

Finally fished the little river. Gorgeous morning  for a start! I should have had my limit of 5, but manage to mess up numerous times. Early in the morning the bite was very light. They would just pick it up. Most times I couldn't feel the bite. ( I have nerve damage in my hands; so not a lot of feeling)  Later you could feel the tick. Took two nice walleye and a big blue gill home. Lost several other fish, and caught 5 fun small mouth and a few small walleye. AND got bit off 6 times by northern! I tried cranks, and a spoon trying to catch the buggers, BUT!!

A GOOD morning!

Went over the other evening for a change.( normally fish mornings) Think I just got in on the tail end of the bite. Caught two small fish right away, but nothing after that. What was VERY disappointing was the fact I had FOUR otters swimming in the area below the dam not far from me. I saw how may fish one of them would kill during  a winter a few years ago.( by all the dead fish laying on the ice; bass, catfish northern and rough fish)  Don't want to think how many four will kill!:cry: Weather permitting, going to try in the morning before the storms move in.

Went over Sat. and Sun. mornings. Saturday was slow except for about half an hour when everybody was catching fish. Did my best floating a 2 in. power minnow suspended  about 4 ft. under a float; fished alongside rack bars in the river. Took two nice eaters home.

Sunday was slow for every one. Was having some luck again floating the minnow, but the location of the active fish I was looking into the sun. Had terrible time telling bites. Tried line watching  but with the wind it was tuff! Took one eater home to add the others. Had a nice meal .

Went over for a morning last week.( ben busy with family things!!) The water has been up, but was very clear. Fishing was slow for walleye, with just seeing three caught, Lots of northern with most being small. I did manage to loose about a 4 - 5 lb. trying to get it on shore before I was bit off. Almost made it!:D

 Hope to try this week end with warmer temps.

Went over for a while today.(12-8-15) Fishing was slow. Manage five small walleye, four smalleys, and two northern. Missed other bite as the wind made connecting hard at times. Still! Considering it's almost the middle of Dec., I'm not complaining!:D

Only got to be out once this spring( the river has been going up and down so much). Nothing  to show for it, but it REALLY felt good to be out!!  Hope for more stable water levels soon.

Went over for a while Sat. morning, with wife's son in law. Neither of us could get any hits working jigs and plastics. I switched to my jig and float. Released a 24 in walleye.; 12 in smallie, then gave the set up to Dave. Took a little bit to get him using it right, but he managed four smaller walleye, and one keeper. I re rigged one of my other rods, and managed two nice keepers.  Water was up, but fairly clear.
