      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 .

Bait for Flatheads

Recommended Posts

I used to do quite a bit of Flathead fishing when i lived down in St.Paul. I moved up north and haven't gone since. I am now back in the cities and would like to go out and give it a whirl again and am wondering where a guy can find some Extra large (decoy size) suckers. This is what i always used to use and they seem to work very well. especially for the larger fish. I used to get these minnows from a bait store down in St. Paul off Lilly Dale Road. I heard this place doesn't exist anymore. Is this true? I guess that is why i am looking for a new place to get these large minnows. If not, what else works for big flatheads. I am sure smaller minnows and or crawlers work as well, just seems like you end up dealing with alot of the smaller cats and sheepshead etc. etc. When we fished with the big minnows we caught big flatheads. Nothing under 24 pounds and the biggest that we got in the boat was 44 lbs. Anyways, any info would be appreciated. Thanks much.

High Bridge Bait is officially done for and not going on right now. Who knows next year though.

Read back about 3-4 pages and you will find out what else to use.

I do like big suckers in that area. They have been good to me in the past.

Go to Moore's Bait. Not sure if his suckers are big enough, but I would suggest bullies right now. I think they trigger more bites this time of the year. Call Bob ahead though, because he is currently getting a new tank system.

I was going to go out tonight, but he isn't bothering getting more bullies because of the change over. But he should be up and running with bullies in a few days.
