      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 .

Euros seem to hold the hook better and not just tear-off. waxies when theaded on the hook seem to pull right off so you have to rebait after every fish or so. Minnows the right size is key if to big hard to set hook to small most times smaller fish. Just my opinion or food for thought.

even though a spike wont come off,id reccommend changing the spike after every fish anyways cuz they have a scent pouch on the blunt end of the spike and all the scent will run out,i change my spike after every fish caught

I have to say that colored euros have worked the best for me,hands down. I tip a small jigging spoon with 3 or 4 and the pannies have been going crazy! I bought a couple scoops of minnows a few weeks ago and only used a couple.The crappies wouldnt even touch them compared to the larvae. I picked some up in the beginning of Jan. and they have held up great in the fridge inside the bait puck!

Last weekend crappie minnows out caught waxies on my spring bobber probably 2 to 1. Also, the fish that hit the crappie minnows were all keepers versus what was on the waxies. Not sure if that wasn't where I had the minnow in the pack of fish versus I almost always fish the top fish marked with a spring bobber and waxie. Shrimpo/Ratzo with a plastic body on and could attract them but not get them to bite with just the plastic.
