      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!!!

Sense of smell

Recommended Posts

The olfaction (sense of smell) of a Muskies is not as Good as a Catfish, but better than a trout.

Do they use it? sure, but I would not consider it to be all that super important.

Vibrations and sight I would rank as being much more important.

Hiya -

I really think scent is a pretty small factor with muskies. Pike are a different story, but after years of dorking around with scents of various kinds, I really don't think it matters much with muskies. As far as something like a magic marker, in order for scent to be detected at all it has to be water-soluble in the first place, so it probably won't matter much either way. I used to be a lot more hung up on color than I am now too, and I kept a bunch if spraypaint and markers in the boat for coloring lures. I'd hold a bait over the side of the boat, blast it with a can of spray paint, wave it around for a minute to dry, and catch fish on it a few minutes later. (I also drove around in a red lund with orange, pink, silver, black, green, chartreuse and white freckles back then - I wasn't too careful about overspray smile )
