      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 .

Cold snap and fishing?

Recommended Posts

Dahitman44

Any thoughts to how this cold snap will do to the fishing?

I am guessing that it will not help. Anyone else have any thoughts on extreme cold and fish action?

One thing the cold has done is most of the slush is froze. I was out last nite and took the Buick half way across the lake. I sat at a buddy's till about 9:30 and took off after the snow and wind picked up. Suprising how the road filled in so quick. The Buick powered threw it tho.

Thanks Hitman!! Thanks too for putting that ad in your paper for it.

You're right Steve, I would think that the slush problem should be all but gone.

The fish don't mind the cold weather as wind chill doesn't bother them.

I have noted that when the ice starts to pop and boom the fish seen to go deeper.

I have been busy replacing the jigflies the toothy ctrtters bit off on HOL last Sunday. :-)

The fish are still active, though it seems that they bite a lot lighter. This is usually the time when spring bobbers and cameras see to help make the difference between a good day and a bust.

downsizing your jig will also help, as well as slowing down your presentation

Hey Bob, I agree, however it maybe a little bit colder for me to try to catch them, I told myself that I would not be fishing this weekend, but, there is still a 85% chance of me going. It maybe too cold to fish with a portable if it's windy. I to just finished relining my rod after a fish messed it up at the HOL GTG'r, later, the Perch

In colder water temperatures fish don't feed as much. I've found that paying attention to other factors that affect their feeding behavior is important. I usually go by weather patterns and the trusty moon phase guide. I've found these two things have a dramatic affect on fishes feeding patterns, especially when i'ts cold.

I like to base it off the "Shrek theory", if i'm hungry then the fish are hungry, that means the fish will always be biting for me..... the Perch

Cold weather will have little to no effect on the fish, but the pressure and fronts that come with them will. This extended high pressure system will do the most to shut fish down, but once it decreases, which should bring warmer weather, fish should become more active. The pressure is over 30.6, which is high.

We spanked em yesterday despite the temps.

It just seems like the reports die down because nobody is brave (or dumb) enought to go out. We had only two trucks near us where we had over thirty the week before. I think the action was as good, if not better. Last year it was -25 twice in two mornings on Mille Lacs when I had the best week of the year for jumbo perch. We were filling out on 11-13.75" perch and nobody was around but a few of us stubborn dumb types...

That probably has to do with less pressure and the stable cold weather. If the weather isnt stable, the fish i think tend to be less agressive for the most part, but not all the time.

I agree, its just too often people equate cold nasty weather with unstable weather. Pressure wise that might not always be. Thats fine with me. More bites and less noise for me...

We did well with crappies this weekend during the coldest times so far this years (saturday evening, sunday morning)...I am a big believer in pressure, temp doesn't have much of a factor

Good posts.

Went out Sunday night (not a Packer fan) -- perch were active but the eyes were not.

Looking forward to the end of the week when the pressure will change.
