      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 .

Ready to use leeches?!

Recommended Posts

I can't help but think that warmer weather is on the way! As soon as the ice melts - the leech trappers will hit the water. Who uses leeches? What do you normally pay for them? Where is your favorite place to get them when they are in season?

Leeches tend to get a little harder to take care of - and they trap harder beginning in mid summer. By late summer, you're luck to have them, unless you can take good care of them. Spent my whole time growing up trapping leeches for Jewell Bait.

Are leeches better to use than nightcrawlers in rivers and streams?

Yes they are. Unless crawlers are working better on a given day. smile Changes day to day. Sometimes hour by hour. Best to have both along and let the fish tell you what they want.

Second that on the GULP! leeches. Used them all last year and caught just as many as on the real ones. Great on jigs or anything moving and never have to worry about them dying. At first I always bought the real ones to take along just in case but as the season progressed I never even stopped at the bait store on the way out. They work well.
