      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 .

Leeches and Walleyes

Recommended Posts

Redlantern

I'm not much of a walleye fisherman but brought some leeches with me to the BWCA last week and had some luck fishing for them, however, I did notice that the leeches tend to get wrapped up in the line. I was using a slip bobber and a plain hook. How do you avoid this? Would using a jig help keep the leech from wrapping itself up in the snell I was using?

Also, what's the best way to hook them? Through the sucker? In the middle? Hook them twice? We had a little trouble with the leeches falling off, also.

Thanks for any advice you can give.

Some guys will step on the overactive leaches jsut enough to take a little wiggle out of them.

We brought along a variety of colored jig heads in 1/16, 1/8 and 1/4 oz sizes and tied them directly onto the line and hooked the leech just behind the sucker. We jigged them off the bottom without bobbers and had no problem with tangling or twisting. You'd get a bite in less than 2 minutes. The BWCA was the best fishing I've ever experienced.
