      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 .

I guess!! laughlaugh

He's just a great walleye guy. He has a knack for it. If I had as much time of the water as he has had though I probably would too. I have some catching up to do. Like probably 40 years worth!!

Lisa:

I usually run the motor, watch the map, check the weedline and trolling path, and especially I watch the sonar. I work hard to keep my boat at the right depth range so my passengers can catch the fish. I love it when they get the fish, and of course I don't because I'm too busy to fish! It is all about location and boat control! A real fisherman is one who can put his fishing partners on top of the fish without them realizing it.

I'd enjoy having you and some of your buds in the boat with me!

I know it's hard to run the boat, stay on the edge of a good break, watch your depth, make sure you're passengers aren't fishing under the boat or getting any lines in the prop!!! Too bad I wasn't doing any of that technical stuff AND STILL not catching fish!!! blushblushblushgrin

Thanks for the invite H2O!

If I'm just going out for the day, I usually head west to Wright County/Annandale area. It's a short drive and great fishing. In fact, I'm taking tomorrow off work so I can get out there at sunrise. Quite often I go alone and have an open seat.

Actually, I would like to fill 2 open seats for a run over to Algoma. The salmon have started biting and they are running big this year! 20 pounders are fairly common. Steelhead and lakers too. Any takers? I usually camp at one of the campgrounds.

Lisa - must be why I didn't catch anything on Mille Lacs. I was too busy making sure that everyone else was on fish.

Ya I see winds on Winnie in the mid teens out of the NW. Do you usually go out of High Banks. We have a cabin real close to High Banks and will be up there this weekend for my daughters 21st Birthday. Just checking to see if you will be in the neighborhood.

No we didn't!! Did you? We just fished smaller local lakes and went early so we could get off the lake before the weather came through. Guess what though?? I got skunked again!! But Jim got a beauty!

Not on Saturday, It was a little bit rough out there on the east side and the rain all afternoon. Then when the hurricane hit around 4:00pm. 3 very large gusts came up (as if it wasn't windy enough.) Knocked down some power lines and we were out until about 8:30, which was quick up there. Got out Sunday around 11:00 and fished a couple of humps with no luck. Hit the 3rd hump and found them. Caught 8 in about 3 hours. 21" the biggest and 2 were in the slot. Had my nephew out and he just started walleye fishing a year ago, so we had to get him started on decent walleyes. He got a 18" 20' and a 21". Way to go Dano.

It was a little rough on Sunday too.

Sounds like your in a walleye (non catching rut). Try washing your hands using the sand and water from the lake b-4 you go out.
