      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 .

Brown fish

Hey folks, I'm coming up on 7/14 and I can't wait! I'll be fishing on the Mn side of the lake primarily on the east end. What would you guys suggest for fishing smallies? I have kids who are 8-14 years old coming. Usually, I try to find smallies shallow and then bring the kids out. On most occasions, I try to get them on a grub or spinnerbait shallow. It's easier for the kids to cast and slow roll than using other baits.

We release 'em all.

Is it relatively simple to at least catch short smallies in mid July along shorelines? I'm assuming that the larger fish would probably be deep at that time of year. Any help that you could provide in regard to lures would be a great help as well. Thanks for the info, this forum is great.

You should be able to find smallies shallow early and late in the day and the baits you mentioned would work. Another fun presentation for kids is topwater - like Zara puppies or Skitter pops. Topwater baits were made for kids. They don't get snagged on the bottom, they have fun twitching them and more fun seeing the fish smack them.

Thanks for the advice, I hadn't thought about the surface lures. You're right, the kids love them and so do I. They have used twitching raps as well when I've taken them for Largemouth, so they kind of understand the concept. Either way, it's always fun to take the daughters fishing.
