      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 .

Bullhead trapping tip

Recommended Posts

I've been trying to catch bullheads in a standard tube shaped mesh minnow trap. The only modification I made was to widen up the two openings a tad bit. I've noticed that bullheads can undoubtably swim in, eat their fill, and swim out of the holes. When I leave the trap over night, I usually only get half a dozen fat fish. Today I let the trap soak for one hour. Pulled the trap and there were over 30 bullheads still in it. This is the second time this has happened, so from now on I'm definitely doing the shorter soak time with this sort of trap.

They definitely like bread and old frozen meat balls from Sams Club. I tried a spoiled rotissery chicken once and I got were crawfish. Dry dog food seems to work fine too, although I try to use old stuff from my freezer or fridge.

Carp, I tried the pond we discussed earlier. Just worm and hook, didn't find any but only gave it an hour or so. Tons of nibbles from shad etc. and lots of movement. It's also deeper than anticipated.

I might take you up on that seining offer in the future. Bait tank has been empty for a few weeks now.
