      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 .

Making snell lines for walleyes.

I have been making some snells for walleye fishing and was wondering what size, kind, and color of hook is the best to use?
I have been using a size 4 bronze octopus hook, and was wondering if i should start using red or different colored hooks, would they increase my catch rate?
And also what color combination of beads and/or floats has worked best to catch fish? And what size bead do you like best?
Any replies would be nice.

I like to use both red and green hooks, I am sure they increase catch rates. I also will use red and glow beads, red with crawlers and minnows and glow with leeches.

I use black Ganakatsu Split Shot hooks. Size 4 or 2 depending on the size of bait. I used to use red hooks but they attracted too many perch and bluegill. If I want it to float, I'll put a yellow or charteuse colored floater after the hook.

Gamakatsu makes some excellent colored octopus hooks. I use all colors although color is the most over rated thing in walleye fishing. The theory in the use of colored hooks is similar to using colored jigs, an extra added attractant. A fish does not know what a hook is so don't ever worry about a fish being "spooked" by the hook.
