      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 .

on L.O.W. the night bite shuts down

Recommended Posts

Just one of those things, it's always been a day bite lake. The good thing is you don't have to worry about trying to rent a sleeper, you can do day trips pretty easily.

I had a house on LOW for 6 seasons and out of about 100 nights I stayed out on the ice I'll bet I didn't see 25 walleyes caught after dark. Not only is the lake a day lake, but I've always thought that the morning bite was best.

Depends on who you talk to. I've never seen it but have talked with people that swear by it. Very few people. I'd like to know where there pot of gold spots happen to be. Personally I'll say they're bogus. Found Devil's was much the same. I figured when the sun was directly over the lake was the window on that lake. Caught a couple early morn & evening bt worked extra hard with 4 rods a piece to do so.

I dunno, guess it depends where you set the hut for the nite? The right spots and you can get some Walters, and some nites lots after dark up here. One of those things that maybe is'nt too well shared on the net eh!! 3 seasons back my biggest 'eye of the entire winter came at 1am.

I fished LOW a few years ago, 2005 I beleave. Went to Red and we limited out on crappies in a couple days so we pulled the house up to LOW to see if we could get some walleyes. My dad and his friend both ended up limiting out on walleyes and sauger all at night. If I remember right it was just on the otherside of pine island a little bit. I have heard that there is no night bite as well. But apparently it doesn't stay true to that every night.

yeah it is weird how it just shuts down, and in the winter you have sunlight from 8 till 4:30 so you only got like 8-9 hr of fishing, but in those hours its hammer time!!

I have rented sleeper houses out there before and after about 5pm thats when the drinking starts, My buddy did catch a eel pout about 9pm once but that is all ive seen. I will still fish until about 9pm but with no bites after 5pm you then kind of give up.
