      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 .

Sunny Conditions

With the stable pattern of weather and lots of bluebird skies the next few days what will that do to the fishing. I have had success with nickel blades with the sun out. Will the sun drive them tighter into cover, or deeper? Retrieve faster or slower?

depends on water clarity and overall fish attitude. You just have to get out there and see if they're going. Bluebird skies usually means i'm not off the water until about 10:30-11:00. If I wasn't so lazy I'd probably stay out later than that.

With the drop in temperature lately though the night bite might not be as an inviting an option as it was earlier in the summer.

I have not been on the water as much as I would like to be but from what I have witnessed in the last couple of evenings with bluebird days and light winds my action has come at primetime/sunset on the outside edge. Nothing after dark for me.

As far as a retrieve I might mix it up, but my tendency would be to burn'em.

Was out tonight in West Central MN from 2-9 and didn't see a thing fishing deep and shallow with blades and dawgs. It was gorgeous though having the sun setting behind you and the huge moon rising in front of you. Wishing I could've had a big ol fish in my hands with the daylight change in the background. Ahhh well...one of these days! If you caught big fish everyday, would you still find it enjoyable? (Wishful thinking smile )

Speed and brighter color patterns would be where I would start with the puzzle. if nothing goes then move deeper/ shallower or switch presentation. Being on the water and fishing during "primetime" on days like the past week are substantially up your odds. You will need to let your previous experience and your fish encounters from each day determine how you are going to get fish to bite.

Nickel blades and speed have been working for us during the day. Colored blades and slooooow at night has been the ticket the past week or so. Dano and I had some fun with them last night. Pics are on my site.
