      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 .

For those of us who witnessed the 10ft+ rise in water levels this spring, you will be glad to know that it is almost back to normal.The dams have closed most of the open locks and the water is back in the channel, though still a foot high or so.

Unfortunatley this long high water period timed perfectly with the walleye run and spawn, and the fish are spawned out now that the river is fishable. However they are still in the shallow spring haunts and under the dams. I was out last week and caught 30+ eyes in a couple of hours in a rocky fast currented area only 3-4 feet deep, though no great size. Artificials and live bait are both producing. Channel cats and carp have started to put the feedbags on in the main channel also, mostly under the dams.

The backwaters are starting to warm up, and I've been seeing some crappies and bass becoming active in the deeper backwaters. There are some eyes and perch hanging out around the wood in the backwaters as well, but doubt they will remain there long. Key seems to be in the backwaters with access to deeper water.

Will be out in the boat the next couple of days either on the lakes or river, and will report.
