      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

Strong numbers of walleyes and saugers all over the lake being caught with many different tactics.  Key depths between 18-30' of water. Jig and a frozen shiner or leech and pulling spinners effective.  As typical in June, a nice crankbait bite right now pulling crankbaits in 5-11 feet along shorelines. Some of this is set up as shiners spawn in sand and other bait shallow.  Both reefs and mud holding fish.  Jumbo perch and pike mixed in with walleyes all over the lake.

Walleyes in the Rainy River with a good morning bite.  Some anglers trolling cranks and covering water to find fish.  Multi-species bag often the result.  Smallmouth bass in the river continue to be active.  Bays, feeder streams, rock and weed edges good starts.  Sturgeon fishing opens again July 1st.

Up at the NW Angle, walleye fishing excellent. Little Oak, Oak, Flag Island flats, Four Blocks on the MN side good bets.  Walleyes and saugers being caught in a variety of spots. 18-26' a consistent depth with some shallow fish in the mix as well.  Harnesses with a bottom bouncers turning on with a jig and minnow still a staple for many.  Colors should include gold, pink, glow colors and bright colors. Smallmouth bass continue to be active.  Many monster pike caught this past week over 45" by walleye anglers.  Muskie season opens Saturday June 17!
