      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 was out trolling on Friday 8/1/08 on a tip from a friend that there was walleye and bass to be had. I tried trolling depths 15-20' over weeds with Rapala Tail Dancers. I've never trolled out there before so I'm a nubie. I found some weeds, but they were scarce. We had no hits at all. Fished until 8:30 - probably should have stayed longer. There were some other boats in the area. Some were trolling the channel in deeper water, others were nearer to shore - I think going for bass.

A person can usually pick up a few fish out there.. Tail Dancers arent my usually bait.. More so Thunderstick Juniors or Rapala Husky jerk-baits.

I've had some nice success with the Taildancers on inland lakes (BWCAW). They are great for hitting a specific depth. I haven't had a chance to try them too much on the big lake.

What kind of speed are you trolling at Jim, during this time of year for walleye's?

Somedays, usually after fronts and such, I am down at the 1.8 range with cranks (Today for example). But during stable weather I am cranking anywhere from 2.0 to 3.0. But, the sweet spot usually is 2.0 to 2.2 for me.
