      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 .

Walleyes in the morning?

Recommended Posts

It seems to me Walleyes only bite at sunset. I know on bigger lakes they can bite all day. I my area Ottertail county I have rarely caught Eyes other than sunset. So my question is do you fish them at sunrise and how thanks.

I know on Ottertail lake they can bite all day but thats about 40 mins from my house.

Alot of times the sunset spots will also produce at first light and morning can be a very productive walleye time. Just wake up and get out there!

just a guess here but my bet is that they bite for an hour or so and they are gone and you are on or near a break to deep water?Sounds like you are in my spot.You are in a transition spot which is my fav.If they are there at sundown they will be there at 6:30 - 6:45 in the am.for an hour as well.Figure out what is to the left and right and your all day bite is very close.When you caught the last keeper put down the largest shiner you can find on a plain hook an sit er out for an hour!Watch your vex as the bite comes to an end and you should see the screen mark lots of bait fish.I love when you can fish for two hour of primetime a day.

In the mornings I typically fish shallower for the simple fact that fish move up at sunset to chase bait all night up shallow. Then in the mornings they move back out or go into suspended mode! If your in a transition they will be there in the mornings too. Then towards late morning move off the break and look for those suspended fish, those are usually the big ones! Good luck.
