      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 .

Top water bass in 30ft of water?

Recommended Posts

I was out fishing panfish at a Lake in Washington County, but kept noticing some top water movement away from the boat. I then opted for my bass rig, which is senko fished Texas style. I was able to catch what must have been 10-15 fish in a short span. For some reason the largies were schooling on top water at about 30 ft of water. I just thought that was weird, or maybe I have not fished largemouths enough to fully understand eh?

*also while trolling around the area they were in, no baitfish was present*

yea push them to the top and have at it and then the bait fish swam away or to the bottom that would be my guess.

I have heard stories of people using topwaters over deep water with great success and have tried it often but had only one fish take me up on it. About 4 lbs on a Zara Spook in 24 fow.

I have found this to be common during low light conditions during mid summer. I've caught fish over 15ft of water on top with zara spooks in the morning up north. Also, nne time last year I was with two buddies and we caught a lot of fish over 20-30ft of water on jig worms, senkos, or drop shots. The fish would hit the bait about 5ft under the surface. We would wait until we saw sunfish dimpling(sp?) the surface, then threw to that area and almost everytime you had a fish, it was nuts!

In the march 2008 issue of bass master mag (can i say the name of the mag?)it talkes about open water frogging.the aticle is non-slop fishing. it says that poppers and zara spooks are the lures of choice . it also mentions clear water is better.
