      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 .

So Im walleye fishing shallow by the shoreline with a glow jig and a fathead minnow at about midnight in 2-3 feet of water or less and I caught a 22 inch bass with a 14 in girth it was about 5 1/2 pounds. Is this normal to catch them at night?

Some lakes bass will eat regularly at night and on other lakes they don't eat at all when it is dark. Congrats on the catch. Keep that lake in mind next summer and go out there with a black buzz-bait or a black spinnerbait with a colorado blade on it and slow roll it in the shallows. Might surprise yourself and not do any of that silly walleye fishing at night anymore. grin Just kiddin man, but that is a beast of a fish.

i agree with ya polars, there is going to be some lakes that trigger bass at night. There are some nights out eye fishing that you will run into alot of them.

Great catch.

I run into them frequently on one lake in particular.....the others that I fish often don't seem to produce at night. But on this lake, as soon as the sun hits the horizon it's hammer time! I also recommend throwing floating plastics of lighter color at night, i've had great success this way. Good luck out there.

Depends on the water clarity but yes night time can be excellent. In the summer at my buddies cabin we'd fish off the dock with lighted bobbers and take the spot light and shine down and see a lot of bass, sunnies, bullheads and even a walleye. 2 feet of water, sand with sparse weeds.
