      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Fishing has been good, and will get better

The fishing has been great, The fish are moving into their midwinter spots and are as aggressive as ever. Staying mobile until you get on top of the fish is as important as ever also...

Hey Jim,

I was wondering if you have used the mini smelt 1" ones? and I am trying to figure out what size jig would be best to use with these?

Yes, so far this year, I have had the best luck with the 1" minismelt, the Tadpole, and the tapeworm...

I rig them on anything, I rigged them on demons, diamond jigs, mooskas, etc.. they might need some adjusting as you start noticing how the fish are reacting to them.

I just received some Maki plastics, and am looking forward to using them this weekend also.

Thank you Jim! I just thought they looked kind of long so I thought I may need a longer shank hook like the ones on the size ratso or something. Thanks again I am just rigging up some plastics so I can give them a try tomorrow. I have some of the tapeworms as well I will be giving them a shot.
