      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 .

Typically it is the third weekend in September that things around the pierheads start to heat up. You can work thundersticks, rattleraps, spoons and even spinners for them. I have had my best luck tossing rattle raps and t-stick jrs. You can even fish with mini marshmellows if you want but they have to the stay puff brand.

A few fish will be caught starting now with the fishing picking up the farther into Sept. it gets. The best fishing will be low light conditions and cloudy days. A thunder shower to pulse a little flow in the river helps. An onshore wind to dirty the water helps. Don't forget the 10' long landing net. You can either lay your fish on the breakwall or make a 20' stringer out of weed whacker line to keep them in the water. Most evenings there will be a few people fishing, if there's a bunch of people, then fish are being caught. Also a head lamp comes in handy if your alone - one hand for the net, one for the rod leaves none for the flashlight. Tunrevir has good info for baits - I'll add kastmasters/champs and X-raps.

They are starting to pick up a few fish off the piers and in the harbors. I had a friend that was out 2 weeks ago and things were slow but they picked up a 20 pouinder just out from the harbor in 30' draging stick baits. With the cooler temps things should be picking up nicely.
