      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 .

Fishing Mystery

I have a question & was wondering if anyone could field it. Last year while fishing at night we would be trolling & all of the sudden there would be thousands of fish or something coming to the top of the water and just make a vibrating action on the water. We could never see what they were though. It seemed like all the surface water would be vibrating & making little splashes. It has happened to us more than once & on alot of different lakes. What are these and should I be catching fish when they are around?

all i can think of that maybe it was a big school of minnows brought to the top by fish or were just resting up on the suface. just a thought. Anybody else.

yep, I've seen that before too.

Believe it or not, they're bullheads.

At least they were when it happened to me.

I think the fishing gods were trying to tell you something. Did you troll over these spots?

I have came across this a few times. Everytime
it has been shiners. I think the boat spooked them when it was going past but other times in the same area I belive that walleyes were pushing them to the surface and feeding on them . At the time I was fishing shiners in the mid summer and was really putting the hurt to the eyes! Good plan to be trolling plugs over these spots especially if its over deep water.. Paul

Thanks for your thoughts. We have caught a few walleyes and crappies at about the same time as this happens but other times it doesn't matter what you have on for bait. Nothing is biting. That is why I am puzzled by it. Always happens on a still warm night and you usually can't stay on the lake long before the mosquitos start trying to carry you away. I kind of doubt the whole alligator theory though, unless you meant northern gators.
