      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 think I still have some herring in the freezer from last year did any one else try the herring or smelt and how did you do, I did better with live suckers.

I normally use shiners but they were not available last year. RR

I only use smelt anymore. Being I didn't get any this spring, I put my left over sucker minnows from pike fishing in Borax, a zip loc, and in the freezer. I'll see how they work. I'm also gonna try Northlands Slurpie Minnows on the quick strike rig. Hopefully this Saturday, if the blizzard don't hit.

I don't know how well slurpies would work on a deadstick, but if jigging I've never had a problem getting a hookset on pike with the single hook. Crappies are another story, they tend to just grab the tail.

Thanks!!...Is that from experience???...I'm down by Hudson, and there ain't no smelt here..Is it just that a norton who ain't smelt a smelt still thinks mmmmmmmmmmm...good? I know theres alot of foods I havn't eaten yet that can get me droolin' just from the aroma...Could a northern and me be that similar?? No wonder I love em'..
