      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 .

Favorite Lure?

Recommended Posts

Its nothing fancy but my "all time" favorite lure has to be a 7" black with blue flake or green pumpkin curly tail worm texas rig. I have caught a lot of fish with that lure over the years.

For shore fishing, I have caught more bass on rapala original floaters of various sizes and colors than anything else.

For some reason I didn't even really start throwing them more often than anything else in the tackle box until last summer, but I've really been convinced that they are now my go-to lure.

My favorite lure for catching fish is a black and blue jig, that would be my go to lure, but my favorite lure to fish is a sumo frog in the slop.

My favs are the spinnerbaits and weedless jigs I make -

Jigs in black/blue or watermelon with zoom worms

Spinnerbaits in with watermelon/chartruese skirts and white twister trailers.

If you pinned me in corner and said, "you have one presentation for the day and need to catch 5 fish or we'll make you spend the rest of your life on sunny, 80 degree days sitting in line to get your boat out of Prior Lake," I would take a 4" ringworm and an 1/8 oz. mushroom head.

For numbers I'm with Ray on this one. A 4" straight tail power worm (black/Char.-( no longer in production) on a 1/16th or 1/8th oz. mushroom head jig.

For that pig. A Black power slug and a 1/40z. mushroom head jig.
