      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 .

Lake of the Woods Fishing Report

Recommended Posts

Memorial weekend proved to be a great fishing weekend.  Fishing remained consistently good.  Big numbers of walleyes and saugers being caught.  Small fish, keeper walleyes and saugers and some trophies still showing across the lake. Key depths around 18-24' of water. Jig and a minnow is the best presentation with pink and gold jigs strong but pulling spinners is gaining steam quickly. Reefs in 23-32', also holding fish. Jumbo perch and pike mixed in all over.  

 

Walleyes are in the Rainy River with a good morning bite if you can find an active school.  Many walleyes have headed back to the lake but some remain in the river and will stay all year. Same as the lake, a jig and a minnow has been best tactic for boating walleyes. Sturgeon fishing opens again July 1st.

 

Up at the NW Angle, anglers continue to crush fish.  Many have limits in just a few hours.  Fish are all over islands such as Oak Island, Little Oak, Hay Island, Garden, and structure off of other small islands. Jig and a minnow up at the angle is the tried and true method of choice but pulling spinners is turning on big time.  Colors should include chartreuse, pink, glow colors and of course gold. Key depths ranged from 15-25' of water.
