      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 from Flag Island Resort 6-20-16

Ontario

Saturday was the Musky opener in both Ontario and Minnesota and the water temp at 65 on both sides. A lot of nice fish anywhere from 36- 50 inches being caught with a lot of good action in sandy bays with weed structure and moving to points. Smaller buck tails, jerk baits and other smaller baits proved to be successful.

Walleyes have been in 18-30 feet of water in the mud and transitional areas due to the may fly and other bug hatches. White, gold, and pink lead 1/4 -3/8-ounce jig heads are still successful and always seem to be a good go to. Some guides have found success pulling spinners on the outside of the reefs during this transitional period. The average walleye we saw this week was approximately 20 inches with a 30 and 33 incher among the mix.

Minnesota

The Minnesota Musky opener showed fishermen quite a few muskies, especially around Flag, Brush and Oak Island.

Walleyes have been found in 23-25 feet of water around Stony point and NW point, fishing was tough for a few days but it has definitely turned around. Hammered gold, pink and orange have shown to be successful while pulling spinners and bottom bouncers, crawlers have been more productive but, we still are picking up a few with shiners. The shinners have moved out deeper and are more scattered now moving the fish out to the reefs and away from larger islands. With the may fly and other bug hatches pulling rapalas in deeper water has been successful as the fish have been suspended about 5 feet off the bottom. Saugers have been found more by Kirk and Norman.

Until next week, good luck fishing!
