      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 .

For minnows, a standard seine is hard to beat if you have a spot where one can be used.

For leeches, I take a 3 pound coffee can and put some meat like liver, or beef scraps in it. Squeeze the top down so the opening is only a half inch wide or so. Tie a string to the can, and toss it in overnight. Check it again in the morning - the earlier the better.

Gissert has the right idea on Leeches.

A good cylinder with inverted cones trap will work great for fatheads. Bait it with some dogfood and keep it close to shore this early in the year. The fatheads males are black with tubercles on their heads and the females are fat with spawn. Fatheads will look for rock edges, woody debris, or plant structures to nest nearby.

Shiners you should look at a deeper net, seining may work but more likely professionals will have better ideas. A cloverleaf trap or something else that can get them in deeper water is the ticket.
