      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 .

I was watching the Fishin' Canada show this morning and they caught 7 walleyes that were eaten by northerns as they were reeling the walters in....could you keep the northern if it's not hooked and is just holding onto the walleye?

Very funny episode by the way.

My best guess without referring to the regs is no, can't keep the northern. I think using a gamefish as bait is illegal and since they caught the northern using a walleye, even though it was unintentional, and walleye is a gamefish, the northern must go back.

Not sure on Canadian laws but here in Iowa gamefish can be used as bait as long as its caught by leagle means, used in the same body of water it was caught in and count it as part of your daily bag limit. We have been know to troll 20" pike for muskies grin

I've had this happen numerous times on my trips up north. In some spots I'll just start "jigging" a caught walleye on the way up and the pike will strike. Sometimes grabbing the walleye and letting go 3 or 4 times before getting the walleye (and sometimes pike) in the boat. Usually the walleyes are 12-18" and the pike are 24-36".
