      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 .

Whats this weather going to do?

Recommended Posts

So I've recently got back into catfishing after taking a year or two off and am pursueing it alot more seriously this time.

Is it going to be worth my time to fish the next few nights with the recent cold snap and rain? Even if it's cold by tomorrow night it will have been so for 3 days, will this provide some stable enough weather that the fish will still be active. The spot I'm looking at fishing is real shallow, 5-6', but there is a creek that was dry the last time I hit it and this rain should have just a touch of water flowing out, hopefully bringing some bait up there.

I can do rain

I can do cold

mix the two and it's more than likely going to be a night off for me.

If I was in your neck of the woods Nick after this rain, I'd be at a certain spot you first seen us at the other night. That spot just screams big mama flatty, especially with the recent rain wink

For now, I plan on heading out somewhere tonight.....

I know....That spot is aweasome, but that water flow is consistant all year long and doesn't increase much with a rainfall, I'm looking at hitting some other places that this rain might bump up the flow somewhat at.

I think that the river is differnt than lakes when it comes to cold fronts and wheater changes. I have done well on the river during cold front conditions but have had to really work at finding active fish and I guess that is the key active fish.

I'm a firm beliver that if its raining the fish dont mind getting wet grin so why should I gringrin guess you just dont know unless you try. good luck river rat and maybe we'll see out there.

My theory is, one will never know what the bite was like, unless he is out there to experience it!

Help with the fact I did not get out this last weekend.

As far as the fish and bite I have no clue. I have noticed with the reports and some of my fish from years past that flats seem to peak with their bite during strong weather fronts. I do also feel they are as straight minded as a bull during certain times of the year. As long as the water temps do not drastically drop the flathead has one thing right now on its mind. To eat. Does this cold and dreary weather have an effect on where they eat? Maybe yes. If the cold weather has an effect on anything it might be the flats food source. If I want a burger I go to where they are serving them or the ones I like. If BK and Mcandcracks are closed down in Elk River I will go to Wendy's in Rogers wink When they change their feeding patterns this might give a persona that the bite is off but really they are feeding in other locations than they have.

Also switching your baits up. If I have a craving for Subway, you can lay Quarter Pounders and Whoppers on my desk at work, and I will not touch them. I go find my Subway.

I really have no clue.

Good luck this week guys.

This weather is gunna continue to keep me off the river. Seems like every day in the 10 day forecast that I have off is supposed to be rain like today and tomorrow. Thankfully I had a luck spurt the last couple weeks so I am pretty satisfied for now but the second I see pictures of some bigguns I'm gunna want to go out and find em.

I to noted a drastic drop in water temp, from low 70's to 64.

I'll be at it again tonight baring some heavy rain, but will be fishing deeper areas and some snags and will be using smaller baits and trying some suckers, hoping the fish are just chilling out waiting for an easy meal.

From what you guys are saying this is a pretty sizable drop. I had 68-69 during the night even the other weekend.

This might be just what we need. Maybe a call will be made "delay of spawn" and we can pick up a couple extra weeks of good bite time confused

    • Stumbled on this thread and nice to see that cool truck! That's is a sweet find. Reminds me of the project truck of my buddy's uncle. 1992 F150 2x4 6" suspension lift, Motometal forged wheels, and 33" tires.

    • Picked up a beat up old snowmobile sleigh with holes and cracks for cheap. 20 years in fiberglass mfg helped a lot! Fun little project to haul the grandsons around for some ice fishing and trail riding.
      Still need to add the windshield. I call it the "Monster Hauler!"
    • Agree to the fact that sometimes things we smoke do add up money wise.  I smoked 35 pounds of goose sausage today for the kid, spent around 100 bucks, trim, seasonings, casing etc.  But......... i got to drink about 13,14 and watch the queens while i did it, thats why I smoke. lol
