      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 .

late winter eyes?

Recommended Posts

I take to some guys and they say 25 feet or more, while others say 14 feet.

I know it is all relative, but any thoughts on deeper or shallower in February?

Thanks

It all depends on the lake. I've caught walleyes from 8ft to 25+ ft in feb. The walleyes are going to follow the food whether that is deep or shallow. I would fish the same areas you catch fish in all winter and if the fish aren't there anymore then try new depths or locations. I typically fish weed edges in around 12 ft all winter and I catch fish from first ice to the last day of the season in the same areas and depths.

I always play the old shallow early and late and deeper during the day or as eather dictates.

Lakes differ quite a bit from rivers. I tend to error on the side of shallow most often because Im either fishing before or after work when its low light times.

I think the biggest factor in late winter walleye location is where their food is.Some lakes have good shallow bites and some have good deep bites.The main key is,find out what they are feeding on and where that food is at primetime.Find that and walleyes will be close behind,I think depth can be a confidence factor for some people,Im guilty of that from time to time.
