      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 .

Generally poor fishing?

Not really whining about it but GREATLY puzzled by what I experience. I have not had fishing this poor for the past four years. Primarily on Stalker, but others too, for mainly bass. I don't get it-by this time last summer I had already caught more fish than I could recall. Any theories? Am I alone in this experience. Surely I am not THAT poor a fisherman? confused.gif

I finally snuck out last evening for some bass action and found them shallow, 2-3'. Buzzbaits in the rushes were best. Jig N Pig worked in the shallows too, but not deep. Some great action from 6-7pm, but got worse as the sun started to set.

Tried deep and not much action, but that is my preferred method about now. I'm a bit confused too.

For the past 4 years I have noticed that bass go deep in June and July. In June I often catch nice bass while targeting walleye in 20-30'. In August I notice they return to the shallows (docks, rushes) and are eager to play.

Put some weights on plastics and start working drop offs and searching deep. If you are a spinnerbait lover, this is not the time.... zero bass on spinnerbaits this season for me. wink.gif

Yeah, I had expected some fish to move back in by now but man it has been very very slow. Ordinarily will see a fish or two cruising around my dock-this year none most of the time. I KNOW it gets better later, but for some reason assumed that, as in the past, there would be a little more action by this time in the season. Maybe I'm just hitting wrong places/lakes. Tried walleye fishin' wtih some leeches. Man that just ain't my bag.Oh well, there's always Wednesday night Bingo! grin.gif
