      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 .

small river carp tactics

Generally carp that are circling all the time are in a fairly negative mood toward feeding. Try looking for lone individuals who stray from a school, or have their nose down, tail up. These "tailing" carp are active feeders. If you can peg a crawler or some corn to the bottom in an area where you know they travel thru, you should entice one eventually

One option would be throw a swimbait like a mimic minnow. Swim it back slow right along the bottom or on the bottom. It doesn’t work all the time but when it works you usually catch bigger fish.

throw a nymph on with some weight and nymph like you would for trout. Another option would be to put more weight on and "jig" a fly up and down. I've caught plenty of carp in the situation you described. Just have to try a few things until you find out what works.

I'd try drifting weighted nymphs, san juan worms, carp woolys, or other carp flies. Drifting a crawler on a split shot rig would probably work too. If you can find a slow current area, using some corn on a slip rig might work.
