      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 .

Is night fishing worth it?

Recommended Posts

Cove

Working a 12 day stretch of days and now I see the coming week end is going to have an outbreak of arctic air.

I have been thinking of fishing in the dark, after work, Friday night, so deperate am I to wet a line. Could run out on Zumbro or Chester or somewhere crappies are likely to be found. Is that a waste of time? I am talking about 6 pm - 9 pm, something like that. Drilling and setting up in the dark would be an experience but I think I could swing it and would if you folks think it would be likely to see some action.

Also, is this artic air going to kill fishing this week end?

I work nights myself 5pm-130am. I do alot of my fishing after i get off work, so i can honostly say that it can be just as good at night as it is in the daytime. For one u usually have the entire lake to yourself and two when i go out i usually am on the water when the sun is comming up, so i dont have to hustle out of bed and try to get to the lake before the morning bite is over. As far as setting up if u do enough fishing in the dark u quickly find out what things are needed as far as lighting goes...all in all i think its a good time and worth trying out...good luck

On a lot of water, that time period (6-9 PM) is great for fishing. & the 2 back to back low pres. fronts coming in Fri.-Sat. shouldn't hurt the chances either.

Good Luck !

I do most of my panfishing during those hours you mentioned. It's a great time to be out there. The fish in many of our area bodies of water are just as active after dark as they are during the daylight. I wouldn't let the time of day dictate whether your going fishing or not.

THanks for the post, Deerfishin.

That gives me some encouragement.

It would be Crappie mostly, at night around here I imagine.

Yeah, Thanks MNSportsman.

I'm building momentum to try it tomorrow night.

Thanks for the input, Tyler. That does it. I am going.

If I wait until Sat morning looks like wind is going to go wild.

I've had problems with KEEPING THE HOLES OPEN to me that is the down side of fishing in really cold weather.

      You may want to consider #3 ; Rapala Jiggin Raps, or drop shoting. They both have been putting some nice size suspended slabs topside under some breezy conditions as of late. Fishing sure was downright epic the last week for all species. To bad it looks like "global warmering" is coming to an end for this year, was awesome while it lasted...... Those are some decent perch panman54. LOL!

      Pretty remote and flat back there. I haven't been on that exact shoreline but I bet you can pull a boat up there quite easily.

      I didnt hear how the second day went yet.  The long term average is 8% success up to 10% during the 2 deer era.  so 5.7% isnt bad for day 1.   Cooler weather will hopefully help us second weekenders. I havent seen much for rubs or scrapes here yet, should be starting any day.

      HooDoo Point, Everett Bay public landing, or the Casino are all good landings if you want to fish Big Bay. The Y-Store or  the Food and Fuel in Tower both have good bait. Cliff

      Anything from moccasin point west can be pretty spotty with Verizon. If you're on big bay it's tough to beat

      I just read an article in the paper recently, that pout fest might be relocated to Lake Bemidji in 2018. It never gave a reason why though. Anyone know anything?

      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.
