      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 .

Angel Eye Jr. and Northland Forage Minnow

Recommended Posts

I have never seen a Angel Eye Jr., but it sounds like they are very popular on here. Are they basically the same as the Northland Forage Minnow, and when can you buy them at?

The Angel Eye fishes lighter than the forage minnow. It has more surface area for a given weight and has more bend in the spoon. As a result it has more flutter on the fall and a lot more action when jigging. I have plenty of forage minnows and AE's in my tackle box and each get used, but the AE's usually are tied on my rod first. With the action they have, they work excellent to attrack fish from a distance. I have also found them to work good with a short dropper when the fish are a little more finicky.

Another spoon you might want to look into is the glow devils. They fish much like the forage minnow, but have awsome glow paint. They are extremely durable and if you charge them up, you don't even have to be in the dark to see them glow. Something else to consider.....

The forage minnow use to be my lure of choice , until recently I switched to the AE JR. 60% of my Walleyes this year have been caught on AE jrs. The other 40 were plain hooks an such. Theres two ways that catch fish on a jr. On the drop(cause its slow and fluttery) or teasing them with a slow rise after vigorous jigging. But the best quality of AE's in general is the area you can fish with them. I bet if you're 20 feet of water, You can fish a 10 or 12 foot diameter circle on the bottom. It works well when fishing steep drops or breaks. You can fish the top and bottom by sitting on the top and letting the AE glide down the bank. And then jig your way back up tot he top. These AE's have many uses and fit in many fishing situations.

    • I've been using gas grills at home and at the camper for some time now.  I do really miss the Smokey flavor of charcoal but the speed of gas to get a dinner done. I do wrap some hickory up in tin foil to smoke on the gas grills when doing ribs or other longer cook meat though. Lately I have been wondering how wrapping up some kingsford charcoal in tin foil or trying some in the smoker to get that great charcoal flavor would work? Anyone else ever try it for smoking on a gas grill wrapped in tin foil or in a smoking tube or in a smoker instead of wood?
    • It was hard spring on babies
    • Made it up Thursday night on Rainy. Went out first thing Friday morning on the Arrowhead Trail. It was a hot one! Kicked up 2 birds, the first would have been an easy first bird for the year if i hadn't been wiping the sweat off my face. Second bird had held it's ground and flushed well behind me. Heard no Dumming. Friday night was the Ruffed Grouse Society banquet on the Ash River. Prime-Rib was good. About all to say on the banquet. Saturday headed West on 11 and walked the RGS management trail along the Rainy River. Got one early, walked the loop flushed another. Quick miss. Came back and fished 8-mile and landed handfuls of cigars. Nothing worth bringing back. Jig n Minnow. Sunday morning, nothing. Came in at noon, watched the Vikes. Headed home. Grouse season's still early. Upcoming weeks should produce more birds! Good Luck Ya'LL
    • You must have an existing subscription for it to be $7 a month when you use it, and for getting it prorated? I'm looking at getting a tailgater but from what I was reading the cheapest package I can get will be $39.99 a month and will be billed in full month increments. But it does allow me to only pay by the month when I use it instead of having to sign into a contract and pay every month for something that will likely only get used a few months a year.
    • From my understanding males migrate earlier then the females. I've only seen females the last week and a half.
    • No Rule was made Dave, just asked for some decency from others.  Forgot who we were asking though.
    • We TOLD ya!!!  nya nya!!!      Good luck!!  Now go follow my recipe!! best pickled beets around!
    • I couldn't find a recipe anywhere online for pickling raw  beets (unless just refrigerator beets) so I must have been mistaken and will just cook them first!  Love them pickled but not so much just cooked!  Thanks for ALL the comments!
