      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 .

Lindy rigs

It seems some of the guys are out and doing well with lindys and leaches. Is everybody using plain hook or are they pulling spinners? If so is there any particular color to the spinners?

Gary,

I fished Winnie over the weekend. Used a floating Roach Rig (chart./orange) with a leech or shiner some of the time and had pretty good luck with it.

I use Lindy rigs a lot on Winnie and have since they were first introduced.

I prefer red hooks, no spinners. It'll keep a lot of the perch & hammer handles off... smile.gif

Gary,

I generally don't run spinners that often but I have had times that they smoke rigging natural.

There are two things that I use them for:

1.provide visibility

If the fish are scattered across a flat, they can attract attention.

2.provide lift

If I'm pulling in the mud, they are very helpful with lifting the bait a couple of feet so it is above all the silt. That mud can really foul a good spot if the bait and weight are pulled down in it. I caught fish last weekend slightly up the break from the mud so I didn't use a spinner. I did mark many eyes deeper and if I would have had to get off the break and in the mud, I definitely would have ran a spinner. The fish I was on were moving up and down and I was able to get picked up on the cleaner break.
