      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 have never targeted smallies on Vermillion and was wondering if anyone had any general tips to try as we are heading up thursday. Are they on mid lake structure, shorelines or deep water near said structure/points? I'm thinking slow presentation, jig/plastic combo might be the ticket....am I way off??

I would try the shorelines around docks and stuff. Ive never had any luck on bass on mid lake structure, although i dont specifically target them ive caught alot fishing near shore.

Doesn't the bass season start the same time as the Walleye for the NE corner of the state?

LARGEMOUTH and smallmouth bass:

May 26, 2007-Feb. 24, 2008

(May 12, 2007- north and east of

U.S. Hwy. 53 from

Duluth to International

Falls and

Pelican and Ash

lakes in St. Louis

County.)

JB - just a guess, but if there's any science to it, I would have to believe that water temp would be a major factor in the bass season opening early up there. The temps here are a solid 10 degrees higher if not more in the southern part of the state, and the bass will be spawning earlier than up north. So to avoid a lot of fish being pulled off their beds, it would make sense to make it later in the southern 2/3 of the state. But, if the northern part had to wait until spawning was over, it could be mid-june in some lakes...just aguess, though. it could be as random as anything

I'm sure that has something to do with it...I go bass fishing in the grand marais area every 2nd week of june and I've caught many bass that still have eggs in them.

Now this question might be a stupid one...is this season a new rule? I've talked to about 20 people about this and they either don't know when bass season starts or they've never heard of it starting the same time as walleyes in NE minnesota.

It's been that way for as long as I can remember. Going back to growing up on the Range, I can't remember ever having to throw a smallie back if we caught a decent sized one... so if my mind hasn't failed me, it's been the rule for at least 25-30 years?
