      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 .

I usually pull cranks in late June, July, August and have great success... never tried it in the spring. I have always gone with the jig/shinner method. I would be interested to hear more feedback on this to see if guys have luck early in the season with this.

Counting the hours till Sat. AM!

MR - I experimented a bit with it last year, and did just OK. More rock bass than anything smile

Let's compare notes after Saturday and see what we can figure out. My wifey returns from a week in Mexico Saturday about noon, so I've got a pass to be on the water the rest of the weekend!

In a word, yes! We have good luck up there doing cranks at night.

Last year one of our boats got hung up in a gill night that was left out. Took a long time to free it and it did some damage to the motor when it got wrapped around the prop. Luckily it didn't cost much to repair. Nets are not supposed to be there then, so it was an unusual situation to say the least!

Pulling shad raps near goose island at night can be very productive. Your best bet is a #5 crayfish, however the clown pattern can be good too.

I was using a silver/blck shad last summer at night (6-10pm ish) and did really well...

started off getting a lot of Northern hits, which is fine by me, I just like catching fish, don't really like eating them. Then after the sun started to really dip behind the trees the Walleyes came on duty and we had more fun. I think the deepest I got was 10 feet, I was just tooling around didn't want to go farther out by myself (yeah, I'm a chicken).
