      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 .

Is it too late to fish the Croix?

Recommended Posts

fellowx

I have some days off next week that I would like to go fishing at St. Croix. Is it too late in the season to fish the croix, has the fish turned off? What are some of your experiences. Just want to get in on some action before the boat gets stored away. Will be happy with any kind of fish whether it be sheeps, crappies, silvers, or bass.

Can you fish with 2 poles at the Croix? If so, will it be okay to cast one line out with a minnow and jig with another pole?

One tip, if that is your presentation, try using a 3 way rig w/ the drop weight being a jig. Search "Dubuque Rig" or "Wolf River Rig" if unclear.

Dave,

What weight & type of jig do you like for the dropper? I messed around with these last fall but wasn't real confident.

Frustrating time of the year to fish with all the leaves in the flowage.

For whatever reason, this seems to be the best time to fish the Croix. The pleasure boats are almost gone, and the duck and deer hunters are flocking to the woods and slews. Last wednesday my partner and I managed 9 nice keeper saugers. Two of which were 20". We returned about 15 fish. The white bass were hitting well also. Will be out again on tuesday. Good Luck

Is it legal to fish a three way with a jig head as a weight and another hook above? Does that count as one lure? Just wondering I am going to give it a shot this weekend.

It should be legal...but then you'd only be able to use 1 line.
