      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 .

Really sad to say, there isnt a great spot to shore fish around these parts, especially for the summer months. Spring and fall, trout (browns and splake) come close enough to shore to target. But summer is tough as they head out deeper.

Bayfield doeshave a fishing pier near the Coast Guard Station (end of S 1st Street) and in the East Dock Park. Its on the rip rap shoreline. You could cast here with spoons and such and try to see if you land some sort of trout. But, for the Bayfield area, if you wanted to fish perch and get access to one of the local marinas, that is about your best bet for "action".

Down in Ashland you can fish the hot pond area (near the Power Plant) and probably could catch a few smallmouths and or a walleye. Thats if you wanted to drive a half hour south.

Thanks Jim, I checked it out when I was up there and the pier fishing did not look to good . But I will be back to fish in the near future from a boat. I saw lots of smaller watercraft being used when I was up there. Very nice area and the potential looks good. How is the fall walleye bite? Thanks Saffer

Dock(pier) fishing is limited, but in the fall - especially in October things really pick up. Shore fishing with waders can be good and casting from marina's breakwalls can be excellent. It all involves timing though. spoons, minnow baits, and fresh spawn will all work. It really is a boom or bust fishery- I know from experience.
