      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!!!

Apostle Islands, Chequamegon Bay Fishing Reports

Recommended Posts

Kent, sorry to hear about your skunking in the bay.. But, you hit on something key.. Mobility can be key to getting bit during those days your seeing a lot of sniffers.. Gotta keep moving to find some active ones..

Ice is still looking good.. Lots of ice in the bay itself.. And north of Houghton Point, the average is 12 inches of ice.. This leads all the way into the islands.. To Hermit, Oak, and just south of Steamboat Point on Madeline Island.. Big winds forecasted again this weekend, some ice has left from the western side of the islands, and hopefully it doesnt get beat up too bad this weekend..

Current is key for active trout, in the islands and in the bay itself.. If current is lacking, downsizing is key.. And for lakers in the depths, this means spoons, sometimes 3/4 of an ouce with some cut bait. Also, bucktail jigs seem to get bit more often then not on these days as well. With good current, nothing beats a beetle.. Mackinaws, Delasky, of the Fly are my favorite.. ounce to two ounce.. Always having a stinger hook rigged off them too!!!

Interesting enough, this past Tuesday, we caught all our fish on GULP! J erk Shads.. I filleted the 5 inchers and used them on the pins of beetles to get bit.. And this was a day the fish were finicky as well.. I'll be experimenting with this set-up more throughout the season..

Have just started to get photos again, after losing my camera down the hole in 190 FOW the other day.. cry
