      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 vs. Gulp Alive?

Recommended Posts

I'm going to be up fishing out of Morson over the 4th and was going to bring up some Gulp minnows to fish with. Have you seen any difference between those big tubs of Gulp Alive baits vs. the standard Gulp minnows you buy in the bags? I was going to bring up some 2-1/2" or 3" minnows but thought it would be much easier to pack the bags vs. the tub.

Also is it better to use these to "tip" a jig with, or thread them on the a bare head and make it the jig.

Thanks! Tim

I have used the ones in the bag in place of a fathead on a jighead. Worked well for the river walleyes last fall

We use Gulp minnows in place of live minnows. We use the 4" Shad black/silver and the chartruese. We put the hook through the mouth and out the head. Doesn't matter on the tub or pack - whatever is easier.

I would go with the bags. I was up in ontario last week and I had the gulp alive tub. If it ever went on its side it would leak all over. If you go with the tubs find a better way to store it... Another guy I was with used just plain gulp and it worked just as good. If you go with the plain gulp you can try it in dif colors. The black and white ones worked well sometimes and other time the chart. would produce more fish.

Berkley had a problem with the original packing and it did leak after you broke the seal. I transfered mine to a regular canning jar with a sealed lid and it was just fine. I believe they have fixed the problem.

Thanks for the replys! I bought some bags and will bring those. They have a new watermelon pearl color that looks pretty deadly. I got some of those and the black and white smelt ones.
