      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 know that you can get into some nicer cats upriver of Stillwater around the highbridge and boomsite areas. Look to the side channels and for down timber. Osceola holds a few cats in the deeper holes but for shorefishing opps, I'd head to the St Croix Falls park and fish around the boat landing. Cut bait and live suckers are decent but you can't beat a nice lively 4-7" bullhead lobbed out into the current. Crawlers will catch some fish after dark as well but the suckers, sheepies and quillbacks will pick you clean during the daylight hours. Below the bridge up at the falls there is some deeper water that holds fish as well. A bit trickier to get to in the dark though, so I'd do your research during the daylight hours.

All the deep holes should be holding cats. I outlasted a 25 lb flathead near Franconia a couple weeks ago. A 1/16 oz. jighead, crappie minnow and 6 lb. test was the trick. blush.gif

Tunrevir, you up for lunch this week? Shoot me an email...

I'm planning on doing a nightfishing excursion up at franconia next week. Between 2 people and 4 lines I definitely plan to experiment with baits. Hopefully both the cats and the eels cooperate. By the way, eels cooperating means they don't bite at all.

JB stop by peltier on your way out and catch a few bullheads for bait, either of the east side of peltier or by the dam. You might really like the results!

Sohaad, lunch sounds good, I'll e-mail you later!

Can't say I've ever used bullheads for bait before. Do you rig them the same way you would a large sucker minnow?

Yep, I usually lip hook them but every once in awhile I'll hook them through the tail just for a bit more action.
