      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 .

Using a Rattle Trap for a decoy

Recommended Posts

One of my friends has had good luck using a rattle trap as a decoy. Has anyone tried this?

I have used them before. I usually try them when none of the other decoys are bringing them in. Sometimes they work, other times not. They sure do make noise though.

I have used rattle traps and have had mixed sucess I jig them and have caught pike on them and have had pike blast in and miss them several times . This past weekend I was fishin mille lacs and was jiggin them and no pike but did it ever draw in the perch and not just one or two, dozens would come in and one time about a 150 baby perch schooled in around it.

sham is right about the noise

I also have a deuy's rattle decoy called the teal teaser with rattle

I have added rattles to all of my decoys. Go and get some small worm rattles and slip them into the holes of your decoys. It worked great for my bear creek decoys-had to open the drain holes just a bit to get them slid in.
