      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 .

GULP crawlers

Recommended Posts

Has anyone tried the GULP crawlers for walleyes, or any other fish? If so, how do they compare to real ones? Im talking about the small 1.8 ounce containers they sell for 5 bucks, are they worth the money or am I better off using real crawlers? Thanks

They do work well at times behind blades, but have only had limited success using them with live bait rigging methods. There are days when they outfish real one 5-1 and other days where it's vice versa. When using multiple lines in the boat (if this is an option), try a Gulp crawler on one of your lines and let the fish determine what they want. So, yes, I think it's a wise purchase. If and when they do work for you, upgrade to the bucket size with the liquid. If not, you're not really out a lot of dough.

On spinners they work great. I've caught a few with them on rigs but it is hard to beat the real thing when rigging.

Is this just plain gulp or the gulp alive? I have had a lot people swear by the gulp alive crawlers that they are better then the real thing. I have not bought any yet but I am interested.

I think nothing is better than live bait. I had gulp crawlers on last year because we only had a few live crawlers left and my buddy outfished me about ten to one for walley. The only artificial bait that I think is comparable to live bait is a rapala.
