      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 .

runnin raps during full moon / cold front?

Recommended Posts

It is two days after full moon and was thinking about running raps on a local lake that has been good for that kind of action.

With the clouds and the goofy weather substantially hurt our action tonight? We are going to run some live bait till dark as well.

Thoughts?

thanks

We had quite good luck on Osakis trolling Raps in 8 1/2 foot of water on Saturday evening from 5-8. It was very cloudy and cold but the walleyes were snapping up the Raps.

We have been doing well all season on cranks. Last Friday night yeilded 4 good keepers and a few slots as well as a few small ones in a couple hours trolling, Saturday and Sunday were not as good with the big cold front, rain and wind though. We also got a few smallmouth, silver pike and to many white bass but it was still fun.

I really like the full moon for the visibility; for example when Long lining to get the depth you often need the heavy gear and rod holders'. The moon illuminates the rod tip nicely; also if your cranks are in the weeds it is easy to see the cranks spinning on the surface.
