      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 .

Perch advice

Recommended Posts

I was fishing this small private lake and the perch were just nuts in it. The lake is shallow and only about 8 feet deep and clear as day so I could sit in my shelter and see all the fish around my line. Two lines would have been impossible to work.

Anyway, most of the perch were small but every once in a while a big one, 13 or so would swim in and if I could get it right, I could catch it. But fighting off all the little ones was a challenge. Are there any tips on doing this? There were so many perch in there that I could see at least 5 or 6 at any given time.

We see that exact same scenario here in Iowa sometimes. Isnt it fun? Couple things to try: Fish really high, like 3 feet below the ice. The big perch will see the little guys up chasing your bait and more will come in. Then you can drop down to the big ones. Sometimes the biggest ones will be the only ones that have the guts to come that high. I switched to 5mm Fiskas, which is upsizing like the other guys said. It also means you can control your jig really well. Its so heavy that it drops really fast. Good luck
