      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 .

Reel Weeds? Underwater Camera... pics

Recommended Posts

Ok so as some of you know I got my Cabela's Advanced underwater camera last sat, by the way its AWSOME!!! Anyways I was wondering if any of you guys have tried the structure on a string and if it really attracts fish, Im going to give it a try on my camera and another in a hole right by my spear hole, my goal is to attract some panfish to get the nords in the area, anyone got some tips and tricks or suggestions on the possibility of this working.

Whats your opinions?

Camera, Reel Weeds...

Camera - Good.

Reel weeds - bad. At least they didn't do much for me. Just IMHO. Hopefully they'll work better for you. It's always good to try new stuff. Might work better on your lakes.

laska thats the same cam I have they work great as for the reelweeds Iuse them but not enough the first time i had pike move into them waiting to ambush pannies as they swam by, I didnt have the weeds down the hole 5 mins and the pike were already in them. but this has been the case all the time. no real tips you just have to experiment and its really trail and error. hope they work for you.

See, where I spear (lake winona), I dont have any structure on the only point on the lake, its all weeds that are a foot tall and scattered badly n sandy bottom, Im hoping puting my cam down my spear hole with the weeds on will help bring them in and Ill put one right on the outside of my perm darkhouse, hopefully if the nords come in, they come in between the weeds and thats where my decoys will be, hopefully my plan will work and Ill try to take pictures to show you guys!

elwood maybe if ya come down you can see it in person! Maybe have some simple pointers you could show me.

I have never been a fan of the reel weeds for Spearing. I think they would work, but i try and set up on the outside of the weedline, so there no good for me.

Camera is awesome to be able to check out the bottom before you waste the time to cut the whole!
