      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 .

We always left them in the gall til we needed them. I haven't used them in years but they woked well on panfish back then.

The biggest problem I have had with that system is about 2/3rds of the gall's I choose don't have a grub in them. I have to bring a whole bag full with me just to get one or two grubs. Must be I don't know how to pick um.

When picking carefully inspect the gall looking for any signs of a hole. If one is present then the grub has burroughed out. I always opened then up and stored them like waxworms. They work well for panfish. When I was a young lad and short on cash I often used these for icefishing. They are small and round and don't hold up as well as the waxworms but thy're free grin.gif.

Good Luck!

Here's what I do and how I use them. First cut all of them and get the worst part done with. Then (I learned this from my dad who was a hardcore sunny fisherman)you store them in the freezer. When you want some you just take out what you figure you will use and BOIL them. At first when you take them out they will look all shriveled up and discolored but trust me they will turn snow white after they are boiled. Now just put them on a paper towel and roll them around lightly to dry them off.This also toughens them up (boiling that is). Now just put them on a hook behind a waxie and its lip rippin time. I have been doing this since I was a youngster and it works excellent! Give it a try!! You will be glad you did!!
