      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 .

Pre Spawn, Spawn, Post Spawn

Recommended Posts

We caught a lot of big fish this weekend. 3-5 lbs fish. The water temp was 67 - 70 degrees. All fish were caught in 2 - 8 ft of water.

The big girls had their fins ripped up a bit and were red. I'm just curious as to what stage these girls were at?

I understand that pre spawn they'll be feeding hard. I'm not sure about the spawn. Then post spawn can be tough. Let me know if I'm wrong on any of these.

Thanks!

Were the really big ones with the red fins full of eggs or flat and spawned out? You usually only see the red fins on the egg filled ones if they are on the bed. If they are spawned out and red finned they are just getting done and in a post spawn mode, but barely. Going by your water temp they should be close one way or the other.

Also... you can find bigger males with the red fins. But not usually 5 pounders.

Thanks for the response. Looking at the different pics I'd say there was a mix. This one for example looked pretty fat and had red fins. All over 4 lbs had red fins. Some of the three pounds did not. Heres a pic of a 4 lber
