      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've caught some eyes with the longer powerbait worms. However, that was in the boundry waters where they will bite anything. Not sure if you could catch any metro eyes with em.

Ive caught my fair shair of walters while targeting bass with shakey head/straight tail worms and texas rigged ribbon tailed worms. Though I wouldnt say Ive caught enough to make it be a go to tactic for me.

That was probably my podcast from last year that you heard.

At times I love big plastics ---- I call them bass plastics because most of them are traditionally thought of as bass baits. They're great for fish in shallow water. Some of my favorites are 4 and 5 inch minnows, flukes, and swimbaits. Ringworms are a traditional walleye bait and work great. Even senkos will get bit by walleyes (I almost never use them for walleyes, only when I'm goofing around). I usually fish 1/16 to 3/8 ounce jigs, sometimes weighted hooks, and sometimes even unweighted hooks, so they work best in water less than 8 feet deep. 6 feet and less is ideal.

It takes a while to develop confidence in baits like that, but at times they can be outstanding.

alot of bass plastics can be used for walleyes, such as swimbaits (there was a segment on the infisherman show about using them) also when fish are holding shallow in weeds or wood, they will take lizard and creature baits very willingly. soft jerkbaits have been excellent producers of walleyes for me.

i have also caught some walleyes while using shakey jigs and worms around deep weedlines during the summer.
