      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 .

Spring Perch

Recommended Posts

How long do they stay up in the shallows after the ice goes off? Also, are they done spawning under the ice or after the ice is out or is there a specific temp?

I would say until about the time the walleyes start to move up in the shallows. Then they have to high tail it out of there or they will be lunch meat! They may still stay shallow but they are moving into the cover around that time, they wont be as free roaming on the flats. Good luck.

Look for the 9 foot depths and if you can find some rocks and few cabbage strands your in. Last year on opener with the late ice out it was nuts you didnt know if it was a walleye or perch. Shiners or fat heads.

Not good!! We tried our winter spots and then tried more shallow also. Never had a bite!! Did get accused of Wally fishing! I think some people do not know you can fish for other species besides the magical walleye.
