      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 .

Small Bullheads

Recommended Posts

They should work just fine. The walleyes have been hammering those smaller bullies lately as well....always a nice bonus. Trading is completely fair game. Are you looking to trade for anything specifically?

I have 100+ small bullheads in the 2-5" range, will these work for Channels?

Bullheads that size make good cut bait. Take a scissors and just cut off the head right behind the gill plate and snip off the tail and you have a perfect hunk of cut bait. I use about a 5/0 circle hook and just hook on the cut chunk leaving as much of the hook exposed as possible. This hunk of cut bait leaves a good scent trail - every 15 to 20 minutes replace the chunk with a fresh one to keep the scent trail going. If you don't have a hit within about 5 to 10 minutes move the bait around in the area you are fishing. Sometimes moving the bait just a few feet right or left can trigger a hit.

I figured if I could trade for soem traps or something along those lines it would be great.
