      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'm pretty sure Its the larva of a blowfly. I've found them in fountains that have not been running and are full of leaves and other stuff. I sure wish I had some right now! I've never fished with them, but I have been finding such light bites, which is fine, but...... maybe a mousie would spice things up?

Its been a long time since I have used them but I remember them as being a pretty tough skin so your hook needed to be really sharp but once you got them on your hook you could catch a lot of fish before you needed another. I suppose they are to difficult to raise for the amount of money they could get for them so that is why they are not around many of the bait shops anymore.

Vados bait has them or at least they did. I like them but not many do. All you see the pros use is them colored maggots so maybe these are the secret they dont tell ya. They dont always catch more then maggots but sometimes they do.
