      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 .

5.31.16 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report, nw Angle, Lake of the Woods

Wow,  what a week we had with bug hatches, rain and temperature changes but Mother Nature couldn't stop the fish from biting! In Minnesota, the fish are on the move, venturing out to the mud and reefs away from the larger islands. We are seeing a lot of people having their best success moving in shallower this past week, jigging in that 10-20 foot range. We are also seeing a lot of fish being caught in 20-26 feet pulling spinners and crawler harnesses and a few getting out there and pulling some crank baits. Gold, pink and orange are always a go to color for jigging on Lake of the Woods and seemed to be the best colors again this week. Gold, smaller spinners on crawler harnesses will be a go to color and set up for all the Minnesota guides through out the summer months.

In Canada, jigging is holding strong on points and reefs in 12-24 feet of water adjacent to deep water. Lots of nice eaters and picture fish being caught this past week. 1/4 and 3/8 ounce jigs have been the ticket with gold, pink and orange  being the most productive colors. Shiners and fatheads seem to be the preferred bait for those fishing Canadian waters.

I think I caught a good one! Lindy Arens caught this beautiful 29 inch walleye yesterday using a gold jig tipped with a minnow in 25 feet of water.jpg
