      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 .

Cold front coming thru this weekend, whats your prediction on the fishing?

Recommended Posts

Wife volunteered to go fishing on Sat. "if I find the hot spot". Friday looks ok, high of 36 but then Sat the bottom drops out, high of 10 with big winds, 30 mph plus. Not sure if I want to be pulling my hardsided house around in the big wind but sometimes when a front comes in, fishing is good, but then goes to heck once the cold front is over us.

Wish I could get her out Friday afternoon, to me that looks like the time to be out, whats your prediction for the weekend fishing, considering the weather coming in?

Im going out on Saturday too. I have the feeling it's going to be tough fishing. They probably won't be moving much so I will have to move a lot to find them, then pop lots of holes and hop around to get a fish or two from a localized area. Ive got a backup plan in case my first, bigger lake is too slow. I think having a plan b will be a good dea.

I'll be out from 5:00 tonight through Sunday. I'm expecting fishing to shut down on Saturday, but I have had some incredible fishing before these big storms in the past.

I'm curious what the front will do to Monday and Tuesday's bite? It's my weekend and I have and to head out of town to the ice ...

typically 2-3 days after a front moves past and if the air pressure stabilizes, it's back to normal fishing. Low pressure fronts (which are typically warm) are good and high pressure fronts (which are typically cold) are bad...typically, or as they say.

Yep, friday they should be snapping, heck should be decent bite today too. Saturday might be good as the front is coming through. If I had a hardside Id try it, might still try but well see just how bad the wind is...

I found a direct correlation between the bait bill decreasing and the beer receipt increasing when a cold front hits.

The front isn't here yet, but it sure has thrown off fishing. We couldn't even get them to take a look at a moving jig last night. One walleye came on a rattle reel with a small shiner, and 3 on deadsticks with a plain red hook and the smallest fatheads in the bucket with their fins dang near scraping the bottom of the lake.

I'm not an ice fisherman but I'm on the water just about every day when there is no ice. I have noticed that cold fronts usually mean slow fishing. Shouldn't the same logic apply regardless of the season? It's the same thing but you're not in your boat, right?

I really like this forum. You guys are funny and I appreciate your fishing knowledge.

Yes, cold fronts do bring tough fishing but usually not until after the front has passed. The dropping pressure before the front actually moves through can trigger a bite. Generally the bigger or faster the drop the more it can kick the bite into gear.

    • Doesn't get any better than that. Pic says it all. Congrats  
    • Well not the most attractive option but when the kids are out playing in the sprinkler you could get a roll of nonslip pool matting to roll out then put in the garage during the fall-winter? 
    •   OK, then how about stripping the sealer if that is what makes it slippery.   After a few years it really isn't necessary, since the concrete is mostly cured by then (yeah it keeps curing for decades but most of it is done in a year or two).     I guess if you like the glossy look then maybe the sand in the sealer thing is worth a try.
    • Season ended just like I thought it would and happy Leipold held true to his word and moved on from Fletcher...he did some good things but overall did a poor job building a team that can compete at a high level unfortunately.  It will be interesting to see how the new GM handles this situation...getting rid of under-performers will not be easy and what in return? Going to be one of those down before heading back up deals. Coyle will be the first to go IMO, Granny can go as far as I'm concerned...gotta sign Zucker even though he was terrible in the playoffs, Nino is a question mark, Staal might need to go with the up year he had but long in the tooth and now would be the only time to get anything for him, Ennis (terrible player) will be bought out, Foligno (terrible) probably not tradeable with his contract...enjoy the ride Wild fans!
    • We packed four of us in the blind and had a blast!  Just about ready to give up and gave "one last call" only to have the birds blow up not 30 yards away from us.  One of the gobblers rubbed against the blind for two feet as he walked into the deeks- pretty dang cool!  Ryan made a perfect shot and dropped the bird in his tracks.  
    • Ryan.pdf The pdf shows up as a link for me.  Is that ok Borch?  
    • Twins are 33-91 against the Yankees since 2002! Its unbelievable how awful they play against them.    Stanton absolutely murdered that hanging curveball for a HR last night.
    • I was looking for reviews last night but only found a handful and they didn't really give me that much info. They seemed to be overall positive reviews but all were written after recently applying it so no info on longevity. 
    • Stamped concrete looks great, but not very functional and it requires maintenance too, like every couple of years or so.   ....and how do you get the non-peeled, non-flaked area cleaned?
