      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 .

I havent ice fished for too long, but i am a fan of the chart. and pink ratsos or shrimpos tipped with a waxie.

For me, it would be some sort of Marmooska Copy. I picked some up on the net pretty cheap with a nice hook. the diamond jig works as well...

But for me, it will really depend on water clarity. If its clear water I will use a horizontle jig, if its stained I will use a verticle, like a moon glow by Outdoorprostore.com, love those jigs in stained water.

I usually use eruolarve as bait.. usually 2 or 3 depending on the weather.. if conditions are right, and fish are big, I'll put 5 or 6 of the darn things on, if its tough, high pressure, I may only put one.

Wow, thats small... bet it catches fish! Abome Welcome to Iceleaders, great to have you with us.. Always fun to catch stuff on your own stuff.. Great lures, and great paint job!

I prefer to fish with something a little heavier unless i have to drop down!!!

You know - last year I picked up a ton of those lures from the FM outdoor store (online). They are great - they fish really heavy for their size, have great paint and hooks - and just flat out catch fish.

They really have become my lures of choice, along with a eurolarvae or 3 hooked in the butt.

I need to add that I have started to use plastic last winter and this summer with results that give me a lot of confidence. I will be using a LOT more this year.
