      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 .

Easy: two bucktails, two super topraiders, two straight shallowraiders with two jointed, two straight depthraiders with two jointed, Two bigfoot depthraiders and two bigfoot shallowraiders. You could follow the same theory with any brand(s) of baits you like, but this will let you fish different structure and water types all year long with a minimal amount of tackle. This is a couple of baits over your 15 bait limit, but I had to throw in the bigfoots for chasing the October beasties. If you fish a lot of heavy weeds, I'd throw in a couple safety pin spinners as well. cool

If your only going to have a couple of colors, I'd go with one natural pattern like perch or cisco. Look on the DNR servey to find out what the predomanant forage is and then my advice would be to go with that color. Then one for darker conditions(dirty water, cloud cover etc.) Something like a white/orange combo, chartruese, Firetiger or the like. I use the same method as above for my own musky box, except instead of two colors it's more like five or six and with a few different manufacturers baits. Start small and gradually work your way up as you feel you need to.

Suicks, Rad Dogs spinnerbaits, and Northland muskie-bucktail spinnerbait are also great. There are many great reed-filled spots that these bait will produce fish in. Enjoy your time up there, it's one of the greatest places on earth!

Suicks........I totally forgot about jerkbaits. Musky fishing is such a dangerously expensive game. laugh
