      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 .

What would you do?

Recommended Posts

Been hitting the same spot for the last couple of days with good success, but today I got up early and nothing and I do mean nothing can the wind / weather change move them that far off where you were just hitting them. The area is large so I back troll back and fourth. Today with nothing biting I was trying all kinds of depths using Night crawler and leeches; I even switched to a rapala to get a bit. Guess what would you do is what I am looking for here!! Thanks

The fish may be feeling the pressure of you going over the top of them for 2 days or more. You indicated the area you're fishing is "large", so keep looking around the general area. I'm sure they haven't vanished.

What did the graph say.Were there any fish there? wind may have moved them. Like Otter said , check around the general area , a few different presentations,mabe they wanted a faster bait,bigger or smaller bait.I'm sure they werent far away but thats 1/2 the fun of it ( finding them)..

Was there any thunder and lighting ? That will shut down a bite for at least 24 hours if it is bad enough and some times that is just a couple of boomers and the next day is poor.

If the bait moves, so do the fish. Weather also might move them or turn them off. Yesterday I went to a spot where we had whacked 'em on Saturday, and I couldn't graph a fish within 200 yards of that spot. I gave up wondering where they went and started checking other spots.

If you were graphing fish on the days you were catching them, and now can't graph fish on this spot or get any bites, ya got no choice but to find a new spot.

Like any other predator fish go where their food goes! If they are not where they were they have gone somewhere else. Just motor around and you will find them eventually! Good Luck!

If there was a good west wind the day before I would start looking just to the west of where you were finding them the day before. If it was from the east head east, etc.

But they might have also shut down for a day to becuase of major changes/storms. Could also be they are on to you. Try fishing similar structure on other parts of the lake if you just can't buy a bite any where near your current spot. Always more then one group of walleye in the lake. Might be time to go find the another group to pick on.

    • The building codes are really very important in order to keep the property safe. We need to upgrade the house acoording to these building codes.
    • And Del says ya can eat as many as ya want now!!!     
    • great cheap treat those smoked eggs.  
    • I actually prefer Honeycrisp, because of the sweet/tart flavor. Sweet tango ain't bad either. The others get TOO mushy and seem to lose flavor. But, it's a personal preference. Someone'll whine about there are better baking apples.  Made my apple roast the other day with the Honeycrisp, but put it in the crockpot instead of the oven. Came up with this 6-7 yrs ago.  And there's even a picture of it, since words give you so much difficulty, leech.            Reb's  Apple- pork roast


        One boneless 2-3 lb Pork Butt Roast Two cups  Fresh Apple Cider Rosemary Seasoned salt Black pepper to taste 4 oz Cinnamon Apple Sauce (These are the “Snak Pak” size cups) One  large Yellow Onion, sliced thin              Marinate the roast in the cider in a Zip-Loc bag, in the fridge, for 6-8 hours, turning frequently. Place roast in a greased baking dish, with some of the marinade. Sprinkle liberally with seasonings and lightly with the Rosemary.  Place thin layer of onions on top. Pour apple sauce over top. Put in a 300* oven for 45 mns to one hour, uncovered.  Cover and cook  for30- 45 mns- longer or until meat thermometer registers 155-160*. Do not overcook. Let sit covered for 15 minutes before slicing. Enjoy!  
    • @RebelSS, do you recommend any specific type of apples?
    • I forgot to put in the segment winners Spring        Juneau4 Summer     Henry's Heroes Playoff        BlackLundProV
    • Well quit hijacking the thread!!! we'll find someone serious sooner or later!
    • They can explain that over and over and I’m not buying it. I changed my ducer to the 12 like my 18. 
    • So your trying to work out the picture problem-right?
