      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 .

!!Bass Fishing Seminar!! 4-16-05

Recommended Posts

There will be a Bass Fishing Seminar Saturday April 16th at the Gander Mountain in Forest Lake.. 7pm.

A few of you asked if I could do a seminar this spring.. and Rick just got off the phone with Gander Mtn and set this up...

Early Season Bass Tactics

I'll cover where to find them, and the presentations to help put a few extra fish in the boat for you this sping. There will be a questions and answer portion afterwards where I can attempt to answer anything you may have on your mind.

Try and make it if you can!

Deitz

Fishkid, I was and am still going to talk about floating woms as they are a stable to catching spring fish. However, maybe you and I fish them differently, and we can then learn from each other.

Other things I am going to talk about is Locations... Jerkbaits both hard and soft, dropshot, spinnerbaits, color selsection and more...

See you there!

i also live real close so i hope to make up there for the seminar. I aint as lucky with bass in the winter as i am with them in the summer grin.gif

like joe said, i use the same techniques each time i go bass fishing and i want to learn some new ones. I would really like to learn how to fish for deep water bass with jigs and such. Hopefully i can learn a thing or two about this technique.

Joe and I fish together quite a bit so hopefully we can teach eachother a few new things too!

Hey guys, this weekend i'm planning on taking in the seminar also. I'll be doing a little plumbing project for my son, who lives in Centerville. Just curious, is there any shorefishing happening over at the Peltier pier, or anywhere else around Centerville???

Joe and I actually walked down the Peltier Lake shoreline but the water is still to cold and i dont think the pannies are movin in yet for the prespawn. I would guess sometime in the next 2-3 weeks the pannies will start showing up on that lake. As for centerville, i dont really know any good shore fishing spots where the action is anything worth the while, i think these 2 lakes are basically one in the same except centerville may be a little warmer because of the southern winds lately.

fishingmike,

Thanks for the update. I think i'll bring some rods anyway. Last year mid-April, same weekend, the pannies were really snapping over on Med lake (French Park), but I think thats a pretty healthy drive from Centerville.

Good luck.

Deitz- I'll be showing up as well. I know we talked about this the other day down at Cabela's but I'm still coming.

Backlash- The panfish you previously mentioned are snapping already, readily available to the shorefisherman. I just haven't found any size to brag about yet. grin.gif

I wanted to invite everyone again, tonight Forest Lake Gander MTN... It would be great to fill that seminar room and show the power of FishingMinnesota.Com.

I am really excited to meet some new FishingMinnesota faces, and catch up with some old friends tonight as well.

Lets talk some bass fishing!

Great seminar Dietz.

The topic was Bass but I learned about other species as well thanks to the very inquisitive kid in the front row!

He was coming up with better questions than I could. grin.gif

The future of our sport is looking good.

Dietz,

I've got a question. I remember looking at your rig, but the specifics slipped my mind. What type of hook were you using with your wacky-rigged "senko"? I remember that it was weedless, but do you use a Kahle style or not?

Ralph, it was just a weedless mustad hook. However, I also use gammakatsu, and have used the eagle claw as well.. and the kahle hook. I got a very good deal on the mustads.. thats why I use them, i would think the kahle style hook would work fine. Reason I use a weedless one is so that I dont get stuck on as many docks and chais and such.
