      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 .

Fall Lures - Upgrading Tackle

Recommended Posts

Hey, I am just starting to get out fishing more as the season is coming to an end and my tackle box is getting smaller in size from losing lures.

I am going to be investing in a number of new lures and wanted to know which lures you like best or that are most effective for the fall season. I do a lot of bass fishing on smaller lakes and some pike fishing.

Any input would be appreciated.

Jig /Pig

Rattle Traps

Shallow Cranks(Minus one, footloose)

Cranks!! When you get on a school they can be awesome,

Are we talking shallow cranks or deeper?

I fish shallow cranks this time of year and it seems to work but haven't tried the deeper one.

I use a Rapala DT6 or 4 and Rapala DTfats.. they seem to work well.

Black and yellow Mepps black fury if it has a high bullhead population, size 4 works about best. I've had some days in late fall where I'd have a strike 1 in every 3 casts on that thing.
