      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 .

If you get off 35 in Rush City, head west at the top of the ramp. Its that easy, keep following it and it will take you right to the ramp.. Its in the far NE corner of East Rush.

As for the bite, I havnt been out there in a couple weeks.. is a decent bass lake though.

Here's the update on my outing on Rush last Sunday: Wind was cranking out of the W/NW so I tried hitting shallow water on the west side on West Rush. A couple small LM 12"-13" a few hammer handles, and one that went about 30". I had something huge slam my spinner bait in about 2 FOW and instantly break me off, didn't even get a look at it.

Ended up catching around 10 LM all from 11"-17" in about 4 hrs. I tried fishing off shore but fighting the wind in my 18' Lund made it really tuff to keep boat position so that lasted all of 5min. That thing is like a kite when the wind gets blowing.

Not a bad day but could have been better.

Had a small tourney out there on Sunday. We had 14.93 lbs with 16 something winning it. There were actually some decent weights with several around the 15lb mark and a big fish over 5... only 6 boats showed with the rough weather in the am. Glad to finally catch a half way respectable weight on that lake... its been a while.

I noticed that guy running around I think. He wasn't fishing, just driving around and watching everyone. I guess he had a tournament out there on Sunday.... if it's the same guy that is. What was the problem this time? Where was your tourney out of?

He decided to do a circle around us about 40 yards away watching us with binocs and running over our weedbed, then proceeded to watch us for about another 10-15 minutes from like 80 yards away. Nothing too bad, but it just bugged me that i spent all that time tryin to find them fish and what they wanted and he just found out everthing i was using and doing in a matter of minutes!
