      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 .

Night carp on the surface

Recommended Posts

I've been seeing quite a few carp on the surface after sunset at my local lake. They seem to be feeding. Sometimes their fins will breach the water. They're sitting in 6-10 FOW.

I tried some nightcrawler bits last night. Should I be using corn? Perhaps I will try chumming a little tonight.

Any ideas. I can see them and it's killing me.

they're feeding on bugs or surface detritus, like cottonwood seeds or vegetation. Try a waxworm or a wiggler, or even a small grasshopper on a bobber with no weight and a small hook.

I catch a ton of carp at night at one of my favorite spots, under a small dam. They feed in the bubbles and junk that forms under the dam. I found that a chunk of break will sink, so I stick the bread, corn, etc. about 4" under a bobber. It works absolutely tremendous. it does seem that the big girls don't bite after dark, though. I have yet to break the 10lb mark at night, at the same spot I've caught many over 15, but it seems numbers are higher.
