      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 .

Weather Fronts

Recommended Posts

OK, I am throughly convinced that cold front's really do effect fishing. So, I am wondering if there is a good site that details fronts for any given area, and approaching fronts. So one could know what to expect before he goes out on the lake. mad.gif Where do you look to see the current and coming fronts before you hit the lake?

The NOAA weather forecast. I also go on the MSN homepage and can get a detailed forecast for ten days out by zip code.

Was on a northern mn lake this past weekend and the front actually got the bite into gear. Been slow because of stable and hot weather the last few weeks and the locals said the fishing was slow. Not after the front for my party.

Fronts definatley affect fish. I usually just use basic News weather to see when fronts will be coming through but any weather website or channel would be worth checking. Any big weather change you see means a front. A big storm predicted or temp drop means a front. Pay attention to when they say the front will move through as you will want to be on the water before the front. Also pay attention to pressure/barometer dropping pressure is a good time to be fishing. The more or faster it drops the better. Also, anytime you see a forecast with stable weather for more than a few days, you can expect a decent bite.

Fish still continue to feed after a front comes through,smaller fronts may not affect fishing but larger fronts do slow things down.When this happens you may want to try downsizing your presentation,such as if rigging crawlers,go to a half crawler lighter line and smaller weights and slow down.Rivers are not as affected as most lakes are,likewise bigger lakes are not as affected as smaller lakes.For me Ill go fishing regardless of weather fronts,fish gotta eat and I want my bait there when they do laugh.gif

      Lauren (Bubba) Sawatsky has a storage facility just north of Cook on 24.  Might give him a call. http://www.vermilionbarginginc.com/htmls/storage.html 218 666 5512

      There is a problem with the latency of satellite.  Makes loading pages slow.    I agree that a cell phone data plan/hotspot is your best bet.  I think Verizon on East end, and ATT on West end are the choices.   ATT has a tower near Cook, and on south shore of Frazier as mentioned.

      The crappie bite here has been very fussy, almost like ice fishing. So windy it's been tough to fish the way they seem to want it, most of the time.

      4 outfits out here right now.

      Fall fishing is so solid on Lake of the Woods right now. The fish may bite a different times everyday but they bite, and bite good, everyday. Had Pete Smith in the boat Thursday and it really couldn't have gone any better. Check it out, this weeks NCOR LOTW Fishing Report from Curt's NCOR Guide Service

      5.7% success in warm, breezy weather.  Hopefully that doubles for next weekend.  I think the weather will be a little cooler at least. I only heard 1 field report.  2 does and 2 fawns sighted. 1 in the morning and 3 in the evening.   I've heard area reports the deer are starting to move but not much for scrapes and such.  The leaves have been coming down and the woods opening up.  I've personally seen the deer start and stop using some areas as fall has set in.

      Hello, I'm from Chicago but I have a lot of family in Rochester. I come up for a week every few months and always do great fishing for Large mouth. I was hoping to find some spots to specifically target Pike that are within 30 mins of Rochester. I will be mainly shore fishing.  Thank you

      Got up to Bowstring again at Geigers Trails End Resort. Went up to get some crappies nd found them but again could not get one to bite out deep.  One spot they were 7 feet thick ! LOL   So we chased perch and did great. No 12 inchers but a lot of dandies. Not sure if I will get back up before ice.  Crappies should be great this winter.

      Where's the best place to get bait at Vermillion?? Is Hoodoo the best access to fish big bay? The girlfriend and I are going to come up for a day trip tomorrow...Thanks for any help.
