      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 .

Still a few to be had...

With the warmer then normal temps lately, I took advantage to do a bit of smallie fishing here in my back yard. Always fun to tangle with these beasts of Chequamegon Bay. I seen Crappie Keith made a good post about these fish as well. Fall time is definately the right time for big fish on this water!!!

My favorite tactic to catch em this time of the year is throwing jigging spoons at them. Hopkins and the alike. They are schooled up thick and when you get on a pod, it can be fast and furious. Great time out there...

Leech,

Average fish, your talking 17 to 18 inches. Lots of 20's around, with 21 to 21.5 pretty common as well. 6lb fish are very do able in a day here, especially in the fall and or pre-spawn.

Do you guys ever run into other species out on the bay. I know it's a fantastic smallmouth area, but you'd think it'd be good for other things. No reason why it couldn't be like Green Bay for Muskies and Pike.

Vahn,

A big yes on the other species.. Walleyes, trout, salmon, and pike too are all caught in areas we catch smallies.

I hear you on the northern stuff.. I have tried religously to get ample regulations on this bay for a good pike fishery. Being low density, they need protection. Right now, and previously speaking, our regulations have been lax on the pikes here. And it shows.. Runts are the norm. A few big ones every year, but not what it was back in the day and no where near what it should be. For the musky... There are very few and I do not see the DNR doing anything to implement stocking efforts for them.

Tonka,

Come on up and get in on the action... It definately is a blast!! Ice time is near too, even catch quite a few through the hardwater. Thats a hoot.
