      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 .

Recommended Posts

I know this can vary from lake to lake ,but was mostly wondering what type of bait has been working for everyone whether it be artificial or live and if artificial what colors work best in the spring and which type of baits?

I have been catching quite a few on small spinnerbaits and shallow raps (jointed and strait)twiched over new weed beds.

Been using a bass rod and a floro leader.

We're getting alot of pike on spinnerbaits in the weeds. We're also getting quite a few on jigs and ringworms while fishing walleyes. X-raps have been working great too...gives you a little more hover time when the fish are more hesitant. Finally, caught some really nice pike a couple of days ago while musky fishing using Phantoms, Magic Makers, Hellhounds and the like. Natural colors like perch have been great. White has also been good, as has the wilder stuff like firetiger and orange.
