      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 .

Salted Minnows

Recommended Posts

I would like to bring "salted" minnows to Canada this year. Can anyone give me tips on what minnows to buy, how to prepare/store them, and how long they will keep?

I have been bringing salted minnow to Canada for many years and they work very well. I always buy small sucker minnows. They shrink down in size when salted and the heads stay firmer than fatheads. To salt them I use ice cream buckets and pickling salt. I start with a layer of salt about 1" thick, than put a double layer of minnows, then 1" of salt all the way to the top of the bucket, end with a layer of salt. You can do this up to a week before your trip. Twice a day you need to drain the " juice " off of the minnows after they have been salted. Always keep them refridgerated. When it is time for the trip, try and keep them refrigerated as long as possible and keep them out of the sun. I have found that taking a smaller container out in the boat helps to keep the majority of them preserved in shade or frigerator back at the cabin. Usually they will last a week if you keep them out of the sun. Good luck!!
