      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 .

A little river help

Recommended Posts

EyesFishin

Hey guys, just heard about this website from a buddy, thought I'd check it out. If I'm in the metro I usually fish Bald Eagle, Big Marine, Forest,etc. I'm a river rookie. I'm thinking of heading out Sat. morning for walleyes and thinking of pulling spinners. What kinds of weights do you guys use or suggest. I picked up a couple 2 oz. bottom bouncers but have never used them before. Is this the way I should go? Should I just drag lindys? Any help would be great! Thanks

When I'm bottom bouncing I use the 3oz wire type this allows me to stay at a 45 degree angle up to speeds 2.3 in depths to 30', I have rubber bands set on the line at certain lengths so I can easily know if I have the right amount of line out for the depth I'll be targeting makes for quick sets and resets. Lindy riggen is by far my favorite I do it every time out before the sun comes up and sometimes longer and then change over to bottom bouncing. Just depends on the day and the weather. cool.gif

A nice fact about fishing the Croix is that many presentations work. Why even vertical jigging is working now, though this is usually a Fall presetation, it has been a good bite for eyes.

So I'd say to newcomers to take your strengths from your favorite lake and apply them to the river. Start there, you should catch fish.

Good luck.
