      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 .

chartreuse what a wonderful color

Recommended Posts

Was thinking about colors of lures while fishing and I think chartreuse has to be the top color. It works great in all types of water color. What do you think? And best of all when I say chartreuse my wife has no idea what color I am talking about.

Thats interesting that chartreuse is your favorite color, I can't keep the northerns off with chartreuse when I'm fishing for lmb, so I tend not to throw it for them too often. I do like it on my cranks when smally fishing in dirty water though. I would go with junebug if I had to pick just one, but I tend to switch it up depending on how bright out it is. Black is also a very good one.

If any of you do any fishing in the muddy waters of the south, you would think differently about Chartreuse. Any time I am fishing south of the mason dixon line, I will have a variety of chartreuse baits available for use.

Since this is Minnesota, I should also throw in that I have caught a lot of fish on that color here too. Usually when I have a spinner bait on, it is chartreuse. Yes you do catch pike as well, but I have caught a lot of bass on it as well.

There are other colors I like to use depending on what type of fish I'm targeting, but chartreuse does work for a wide range of fish.

One of my goto plastics for bass is pumpkin seed/chatreuse, but lately I've been throwing darker greens and browns.

The new sexy shad color from Strike King and the knock offs of that color from other manufactures is a great combination as well. Run it in light or stained water, the fish seem to be able to see it.

I have never had much luck with Chartreuse, although I do not use it very much. I usually use the natural colors, such as perch, bluegill, and babybass, or the blues, greens, browns, blacks, pumpkin, and sometimes orange.

Talking soft plastics Tequilla Sunrise been a steady color.

Ding ding ding, that would be one of my picks, along with black, white, Green pumpkin Copper, Watermelon Chartruese flake (more gold looking then chartruese) and the good old brown with an orange tail

Any color is good by me as long as part of it is chartreuse... Especially on smaller tube baits or twisters.

Chartreuse is a natural for plastics, IMO, at times alone and often in combinations especially with reds and oranges. Very often peppered with black spots or with embedded sparkle increases the attention. My experience is that it attracts everything from 2 and 3 inch green sunfish to 30 inch carp and even an occasional full sized musky, definitely bass of both species and pike, too.

My go to on the UL is a 32nd oz black jighead with eyes and a two tone inch and a half tube with a red or orange body and chartreuse legs, preferably peppered. First sub is to a fully chartreuse 2" twister with sparkle. My primary target is crappies, but I have taken all mentioned species this year on the little tubes; you never know just what will pick those little things up or what size it will be.

Yep. Chartreuse is a hall of fame color IMO whether alone or in combination. The yellower version not the greener one.

    • No, but this is what I would get if I was there. 
    • Really? I told them I will Only Agree to one year if the discounts are for one year and no problem. About two years ago I did call Direct TV and they wouldn't throw a deal. So I canceled my service then left for the weekend. I came home called them and said dish didn't show up to put it in and asked if they wanted me back has a new customer or if I just needed to let dish install it. They flipped it back on and gave me the deal. You will never get the "deal" with the first person you talk to. You have to talk to at least 2 people and the second one always gives in. I could really care less which one I have, but learning the channel number lineup sucks big time. I had dish about 6yrs ago and what made me go to direct tv is I had my dish get out of line on the roof of my two story house. They were gonna charge me $50-$100 for a tech to come set it right so I'd get a signal. I left and went to direct....The games they play are stupid. 
    • Heard the teal started to move south from some friends fishing the Minnesota river. I hope some stuck around Princeton but I know there is some wood ducks around 
    • Dish Network is a little tufter to tune in. They use a skew to get both satellites that is why they are turned a little. I go through how much direct charges me every other year.  I just ask for someone in charge and they usually lower it to a satisfactory amount. Last time they lowered it to 52 something because I have AT&T phone so they cut it in half.        
    • That looks good. Don't pay no mind Dave to that instigator!!!
    • I am pretty much ready. Not sure where you guys are hunting but up here the weather looks really good. Cloudy, 50's, NW wind 5-10 MPH. Will be taking my son on his fist duck opener. I myself have not gone for many years so am actually quite excited for it. There are a few birds around so we should get a few. Will be hiking into a WPA that is a bit of a walk so crowds will not be an issue. Good chance we will have the pond to ourselves.
    • So, you're at Emma's for lunch?
    • Good luck folks!  
    • Yep, it's looking to be a warm one. I still have a bunch to get ready but i've got all day tomorrow to scout and prep.    Good Luck!
