      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 .

what are they biting on?

Recommended Posts

Heading to Devil's lake this Friday and fishing through the weekend. I've fished perch on Winnie many times and just wondering if they bite on minnows and small jigs or is there some special formula to catching fish on D.L. Any info on this would be most greatfull.

I assume you are talking about perch. We use spikes. They look somewhat like shrimp when on the hook.

The perch are 32 to 45 foot deep and probably never seen a fathead minnow. Fatheads are to active anyway. The base forage is shrimp. The perch do not have to fight for food.

Sometimes a perch eye will do the trick.

You cannot bring bait into the state so get it at a local bait shop in Devils Lake.

They are smaller than waxworms. They are some kinda larvae. Get them here at any bait shop.

Start by using 2 to 3 on a hook.

Keep them cold to stop them from going into a pupae. Don't let them freeze, but keep them refrigerated over night

Thanks Kevin for all the info. I read on one of your earlier reports you drive a black dodge four door with perch on the license plates, I'll keep a eye out for you. Thanks again.

I think spikes are fly larvae whereas wax worms are bee larvae. I personnally like to use spikes especially when the bite is lite. Spike tend to be tougher and stay hooked better and can be dropped down the hole again fast. My own experience with wax worms is the fall off easy and need to be rebaited almost every time you put the line down. Good luck.
