      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 .

Miami Peacock Bass Report 03/26/14

Recommended Posts

The south Florida Peacock bass bite is still hot despite the cooler temps this time of year brings. We're having days when you can;t keep the bait away from them sometimes. Another good sign is bigger fish are being caught on a regular basis again. The cold snaps we had a few years ago really did a number on the Peacock bass populations in the shallower areas of our systems, and their really having a big come back now.

On the other hand the Lg. Mouth bass bite is really going off right now! The water levels are at their lowest points of the year and the fish are concentrated in the deeper canals. Easy pickings for the adventurous angler that makes the trip deep into the Everglades. One hundred fish days are very common if you throw the right combination of baits, and hit them at the right time. Big Blue Gills are also very numerous out there too. Basically hitting the same lures tossed for the bass we're targeting.

On a recent Peacock Bass trip this week. I had the pleasure to take a father and son team out for a day of chasing these beautiful, and ferocious gamefish. Steve and his dad came down from Ohio and wanted to scratch Peacock Bass off their bucket list's. Being that the Peacock bass is one of, if not the hardest fighting fresh water fish. It's always great seeing the looks of amazement of someone when they hook into their first Peacock bass. They always make comments like " Wow they really fight hard! , or "They fight like much bigger fish".I just consider myself lucky to be there to see it on their faces.Anyways they both got their first Peacock bass and Dad also got his first Tarpon too!! Now that's a big bonus!!

I took some pics for memories and for you to check out. Thank you once again for taking the time to read our reports.

    •   Ufatz, not doubting a word you have to say, you are quite the colorful creator. The stories you have told over the years of trapping in the Yukon Territory. Living in a log cabin, driving old trucks with right and left hand lug nuts and fighting off Big Foot have been interesting to listen to.  To say the least. And now, you live in MN and drive a Mercedes Benz!  Hat's off to you're life sir.
    • Just make a point of telling the shop people to use a torque wrench and then tell them the value you want on your vehicle,  which you will have gotten from the manual. My Benz's have aluminum wheels for the most part and you can distort and ruin one it a Millenial Ape gets at them with a giant super powered wham-bam air powered wrench. I've found too many that know drugs,  not lugs.
    • Hey 3rd in the central and winning games on the road, we are certainly trending in the right direction at the right time of year. After some rocky starts to their careers Zucker and Granlund have really turned into some amazing players, like anyone they go hot and cold but I can't really say enough good things about them. Along with Staal they have really carried our offence this year. Hopefully in the next 20 games we can get some other guys going. Coyle can give us more, Nino looks a little off but it sounds like he is still fighting that ankle injury. Parise looks like his old self more and more but just not converting like he use to, hopefully that changes. I was against making a deadline move earlier in the year but if we keep this pace up we really could use another top9 winger, Ennis just isn't cutting it. Absolutely do not want to spend a 1st rounder on anyone at this point but if they can pick up someone decent on the cheap it might be worth it. We still have the majority of the team that was 2nd in the west last year and if they can play up a little closer to their potential there is not reason we can't make some noise in the playoffs in some kind of underdog fashion.
    • I went to the store in Woodbury a few times for reloading supplies and thought it was a good store. I like that format better than the upscale Cabela's model. 
    •  Did you grind them up a little bit or put them out whole
    • my moms got a lot of the gourd houses and them martins use them. one thing though..............once you have martins using the houses........... DO NOT  clean them out. clean out any holes sparrows or other birds use though!!!! i know starlings also like building nests in martin houses, just so u know!
    • I’m going to shoot for a 16 foot height. I was going to get a pair of martin decoys as well. Reviews say that, not only does it help attract martins, but can help deter other birds also. If things go well, I would add gourds below the house over time.
    • I sure hope Butler’s injury isn’t serious. Oklahoma is only 1 game behind us. Things aren’t looking good.
    • The pair of bald eagles on the Minnesota DNR Nest Cam are finally sitting eggs.  Looks like at least three again.
    • Don't worry, I'm plenty chill. dude.   Don't be a grom, hang loose, etc.
