      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 .

Bass fishing after the rain

Recommended Posts

What are your thoughts on bass fishing after this heavy rain. Are they gonna move shallow or deep and what lures to use? We havent had this much rain so I'm not sure how this is going to affect bass fishing.

should be alright for a while, Looks like there could be some overcast remaining from the rain. Tomorrow I plan on trying topwaters in shallow water until it clears up, then I will go to Jigs under docks/cover

It really depends on the lake. I like to check culverts/carp traps/or any water that is moving into the lake for active feeding fish. Bass tend to congregate in these spots after a good rain. I find that fishing is usually good during the rain, but after a big cold front (pressure change), the fishing slows considerably. Deep water fish are less affected by cold fronts, and water clarity can be a factor in the shallows with a lot of run-off.

On Sat during the tornadic activity the bass were really active. I caught 2 19"ers, some ok ones and dinks. On Sun when the wind was coming from the north west they were not as active. I caught some, but nothing like Sat was and they were all small. Still fun though.
