      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 .

Gulp for Sturgeon.

Recommended Posts

Has anyone tried Berkeley Gulp for Sturgeon? Going to Rainey tomorrow with the thought on my mind that a large part of successful catching is that your bait is fresh and not washed out - I'm thinking that although not totally natural, Gulp may hold it's stink longer thus producing a longer lasting presentation? Plus, the suckers cant nibble it off!

save your money and buy regular plastics.. anyone who can give a good plastics presentation more than likely can fish just as well if not better with a Mister Twister than over priced gimmicky Gulp

I've got some Gulp and may try it out on the rainy this weekend. We also have a bunch of crawlers. It's worth a shot. The more scent you can get out for those fish the better.

Sturgeon don't eat based on "presentation", they suck up whatever smells good. Regular plastics won't smell good, but gulp might.

Was in the store today looking at the Gulp and wordering the same. We're headed up in a couple of weeks. I think I'll give it a try and if it doesn't work I use it later for other species.

Worked good last year when we tried them. They didn't outfish worms or minnows but they held their own and are good to have in the boat when you run out of live bait. I found that continuouly redipping the gulp in the alive juice helped also cause the fish use smell not sight for food finding. I used the crawlers, 4" minnow(looped on a hook), and the alive shrimp. One nice thing is they don't get pulled off by small sturgeon, suckers or bullheads either.

I think the combination live and gulp would be best. The sturgeon as said go by smell and a little movement helps also.

The gulp will help with those sturgeon that are masters at stripping the hook on a light bite.

We just used crawlers for the most part, but I also sprayed on some YUM crawfish scent but I can't tell you if that definitely a must use item. Some other guys in our group used it also.

We make our own spray from leftovers of what we have left from the summer. I don't know if it makes a big difference on what scent it is but it gives us something to play with and experiment with.
