      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 .

New to walleyes

I am very new to walleye fishing. Can anyone help me as to what the best presentation would be this time off year? I know that rocks usually are a good bet.

Help!

This is a broad question and in most cases, too broad. Read through the link below and then ask more specific questions as they come up. Much of what you're after depends on how you're set up and where you're fishing.

I've had some fairly good luck lately casting crank baits in shallow (3-4 fow)then pulling them back out slowly to 12-15 feet of water. I've been doing this all after dark. not having much luck during the day light hours right now. I am by no means a walleye expert. just one thing you could try. my best luck has been on a blue and silver Rap. Most of the fish I been catching bite almost right after I start to retreive the lure so be ready right away.Good luck in your fishing.

Another recommendation that may be the easiest is to stop by a bait shop close to the lake you are fishing and ask them what/how/where/when they are catching walleye on local lakes.

They are typically pretty helpful and can be more specific. Every lake is different so this route may help with eliminting the guess work. Or if you can afford it, take a friend and hire a guide to show you the ropes.

Good Luck!

Just don't be in too much of a hurry, it'll come to you. That's the fun part! I've met a real good tournie walleye fisherman once who'd told me that sometimes knowing too much can at times be a crutch. I will share this with ya, once you get started it'll be hard to stop!
