      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 .

does anyone use those spray on fish attractants (I have "Fool a fish")? They say they reflect light and all of that stuff but do they really work? I can never really tell when its the spray that gets the fish to bite or its the bait or both.

I don't know about the spray scents, but I have been experimenting using gulp worms and they are scented, against real worms and the real McCoy has been out doing em 10 to 1...it might be what I'am, or am not doing, but I've been using em since last summer and I'm not real impressed.

Don't know if that is a fair test. Seeing as the real worms are real. You can't make an artificial move like a real live bait can. Maybe the scented vs unscented would be a better test. I feel there is an advantage in cool water, spring and fall using the scented plastic and or adding scent.

I took a guided trip on Lake Mille Lacs early in June with a PWT Pro. He swore by the stuff. Always sprayed some on his nightcrawler and would also pinch off the tail to get some extra natural scent in the water. Both seem to make sense. I don't think the special juice can do any harm.

BB...I don't know if it's fair either? Wasn't thinking scientific, or about fair, never entered my mind, just weither they work or not up against the scent of the real Jackson.

Let me tell ya though, the chunk of crawler I usually had on looked more like a Cremete Macaroni then it did a crawler, so it had to be the scent....same with a wax worm, it has to be the scent, cause once they are skewered, they don't be movin much!

      Let us know how it goes. I have a cabin on Linwood just off Whiteface. Be nice to find good spots in the area, seeing as for whatever reason I never fish Linwood...

      What a morning jigging on one of the best, fastest bites of the summer for me Tuesday morning of this week.  I had a guide trip but they cancelled that morning and I almost stayed on shore. Since I had the boat in the water and everything was set I went out by myself to check out a couple of spots.  I didnt get very far

      Low water continues to be the issue on the Red. Below the dams still remains sketchy so use boats at your own risk.  The fishing remains stable, similar to last week in that the fish are spread out but in the holes in the middle of the river.  Short 15-20 minute sits on spots keeping the bait fresh looking for the active catfish.
        Bait is still heavy to frogs and frozen suckers with goldeyes working some but it seems that frog and sucker are the best.  As water cools down I suspect fresh sucker will come into play as well.

      I used to have many fields but some guides came in and pay for the fields. I am down to 3 farms but they don't have any small grains this year. So I am going to take the early season off. As I know the geese will use some ponds to rest and I have access to them so I will wait until the regular season to pick off a few geese.
