      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 .

Rock Bass size???

Recommended Posts

Just curious, so people purposely target Rock Bass? Or is it something typically catch fishing for some more traditional game fish. Caught a bunch this weekend while targeting Smallies.

Ya some folks do. If they come from a clean lake and dont have wroms they taste just like a crappie. If you mix them with a bunch of bluegills or crappies people wont tell the difference. I don't purposely go for them, but I catch them all the time when targeting bluegills, crappies and walleyes. They do put up a good fight on a UL rod. I really wouldn't mount one unless it was the state record like others have said...being that I've seen a 13" caught by my buddy and I've caught them up to 12 1/2" (never weighed them). I've seen a taxidermist mount a few rock bass for a guy once they turned out good. So to each their own..If I was to say to mount a Rock Bass it would have to be over 12" for sure or close to 2 lbs.

A rock bass of any size is a trophy worth mounting. I used to belong to a rock bass league, had to quit because I was spending too much time and money pursuing Mr. Red Eyes.

I can't say I've ever "targeted" rock bass, but I sure catch alot fishing for largemouths up on gull and the whitefish chain...which by the way is my prediction for the next state record. If any of you guys are looking for a rock bass to mount, head up there.
