      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 .

Gulp Alive?

Recommended Posts

Anyone using the gulp alive minnows and leeches? I have heard a few good things about it but the stuff seems rather spendy. I suppose if the stuff last for weeks it would pay for itself rather than buying a dozen leeches everytime I go out, but if it's not comparable to the live bait then it wouldn't be worth it.

It does work well but over all in most situations your better off with live bait. I always have some in the boat though just in case I run out of leeches or crawlers.

I like the Gulp stuff when Im jigging faster water, dragging or perch are nibbling my crawlers off.

I use it a lot in Rivers like the St. Louis River, Rainy River when its cold. Spring and fall. No digging in the water for minnows/leeches means warmer hands and longer fishing. This usually means more fish.

It should last a long time. I had the juice run out of one of my containers and have read a lot here about leaks in the ones they come in. I don't know what to do about 'recharging' the package I have now. I think I'm going to salt them and put them on a pizza and claim their anchovies and see if anyone notices. Probably have to wait until adequate amounts of liquids have been consumed.

My opinion on Gulp Alive is a thumbs down. I fished it side by side with a buddy using live bait and the live bait far out performed the Gulp. The fish would hit the bait but wouldn't hang on. It was a lot like fishing plastics.

We had the opposite experience on LOW in June, the gulp outfished the real minnows about 3 to 1. In other times, I have had mixed results, but in that particular outing they sure liked the Gulp.
