      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 .

How is the smallmouth fishing been as of late? And are they deep? shallow? And what colors seem to be working?

The smallie bite is in full swing feeding on crayfish up shallow. Jigs with tubes have been doing well on the shallow rocks.

we've been getting a few on the rocks in 10-14 feet of water using slip bobbers with a small jig or plain hook and a leech.

I've never fished jigs with tubes before, is there a certain way you have to fish them to be effective. And how big of a jig head do you use.

We had some pretty good luck this past weekend fishing rock piles in the morning with a jig and plastic craw in the Isle/Wahkon area.

It was pretty windy both mornings and points/rock piles we had the most luck on seemed to be wind blown (not sure if that mattered or not). There were tons of crayfish in the water.

Are these crayfish there all summer or is there a "hatch" of them? Seemed like there were all over the shore at Father Hennepin.

We just cast as far as we could onto the rock pile and slowly worked it back. We got snagged a bunch, but pulled some nice fish too. The first fish of the day was a 5 lb smallie and all were over two pounds.

Tried throwing topwater poppers and buzzbaits in the evening, but got nothing.

I'll post some pics soon.
