      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've got a cousin coming up the first part of June who wants to go bass fishing. I was wondering if anyone would have some helpful tips on what type of structure, depth and lures to fish for bass. I've heard Washington is a good bass lake, but have never fished it before. And although my username is basscatcher (given to me by my grandpa), I'm not much of a bass fisherman. But, I'd like to try and give my cousin a good time since this will probably be the only time he'll get out this year.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

opps sorry i posted the wrong address, it should be nick_domeier77 @ hotmail.com, no bother, ill just post the info here in the forum.

Last year around that time we caught lots of bass in Crystal bay, straight out from Westwood. We fished along the shoreline with buzz baits and Frogs, out at the mouth of the bay i caught a few nice bass on spinners on the weed edge. Another place that we caught bass was all the way around 3rd point at the very back of the lake there in the cabbage, same tactics, leaning more towards spinners though. I don't really fish bass that much so thats all i can really help you with, look for emergant vegetation, and concentrate on that.

If the bass arent biting then im sure you can find some other fish to entice, the crappies and sunnies can be caught that time of year.

Hey thanks. I tried e-mailing a couple times, but now know why.

Thanks for the info. Whatever we catch for bass, it will all be C&R. That's what I like about Washington and what you said is what we'll probably do. Probably will fish for bass for a while, then go after some panfish for my cousin to take home for a meal. I'm not a big bass fisherman myself, but we'll give those tactics a shot. Just looking to find a few to tug on the end of the line.

Thanks for the help and good fishin'!

Some other good spots to try are the west end of Baker's Bay and the little bay right beside Westwood. There is an outlet on the extreme west end of Baker's that is full of cattails and lilly pads. Any top water baits, especially frogs, work well in there. Texas rig worms worked slow through the creek channel next to the weeds yeilds some good fish also. The bay by Westwood works the same. If you want to, toss some small spinner baits near any cover in any of the spots mentioned in any of these posts and you should easily pick up some bass and usually some pike too. Enjoy.
