      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 .

Using Threeway Rigs

When I'm trolling a three way rig with either live bait or floating Rapala,in the river, do I want to keep my main line vertical, if so will an out board spook the fish? or do I use a super long leader to try to keep the bait awy from the boat?If anyone can shed alittle light on the subject it would be much apreciated.Thanks

I dont like to have the line at much less than a 60 deg. angle when it enters the water. If it get to a 45 deg. it tends to hang up a lot more. The leader is usually around 5-6', too long and the bait digs too much.

More of an angle on your main line drags a sinker along the bottom and tends to hang up more.A shorter line with less angle helps the sinker over snags(kind of lifts the sinker when it hits an obstruction).I was taught this many years ago by an impatient father grin.gif.I have fished with many guys in very rocky situations and I always tend to snag less than the guy with his line out further.What you want to do is use the smallest weight to just maintain contact with the bottom,the sinker should just be ticking the bottom.As far as spooking fish with an outboard,I don't worry about it.A study was done by InFisherman several years ago with underwater sound equipment and they found out that an electric trolling motor makes more noise than a small outbaord.It seems the frequency of the electric motor under water is noisier than the gears or exhuast from the outboard.I use an electric and I still catch fish once and awhile.
