      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 .

Fishing was slow this morning 5-31

Recommended Posts

I got up early for some bassin' and the weather looked perfect! I started at auburn lake where I did well last year at this time. I started working the shore cover with a fluke, there was lots of wood cover and the water was high, usually a good combo, but nothing was going at all in the shallows.

I ties out on the outside weedline, nothing, over the tops of the grass on the flats, nothing. Hmmm.

Time to switch lakes, I decided Steiger is usually reliable for bass. I started hitting my usual spots with no bites.

As the water warmed up a bit, I started getting a few bites but no hook ups, a lot of the time they would drop the bait before i could set the hook.

I saw some huge carp in the shallows and decided to try to get one. I had corn along and tried to sight fish for them. I had a few look, but they were really spooky and would disappear at the slightest movement.

I tried dragging the corn along the bottom, hoping to luck into one but the bluegills kept stealing my corn.

Finally my line moved sideways and I set into a good fish! I was expecting a drag singing hard run by a big ol carp, instead I was greeted to a rather lethargic fight of a about 2 pound largemouth bass.

I used him to get some underwater photos, then I fished a bit more, saw a few nice carp and got another bass, and that was it. I guess the bass were on a corny pattern today!
