      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 .

Do any of you use scent?

I've always seen it in the stores, but there are so many choices... and I've never head of anyone that has had luck putting scent on their lures/bait.

What works? How often do you apply it?

Does it work?

Now now. No reason to get all crazy & start wasting Buds just to "scent" you lure.

Most people use scent from there hands. Eating that salami and cheese cracker, or a bag of barrel o fun chips just before you bait up probally sends the chub into the depths with enough scent to get some attention from gamers. Trouble is however it would be a possible negative smell. I find this true when fish are biting light especially. See if this is true. Fish

I probably shouldn't tell everyone 'cause I don't want to mess up the catch rates too bad but... adding to the "Good Dr." (menthol of course), I like to use a bit of Berkley Walleye formula. I also use Yum crawfish and found that a dose of that will help to keep the Berkley stuff from freezing as bad.

Most days by the time I get to go fishing I have everything from gas to hydraulic oil to laundry detergent on me and a little cover scent is a good thing.

On anything I jig with, I pinch the shiner in half and give it a squirt in the cavity. Gives me confidence if nothing else. Usually smear a little on live baits to.

Gives the munchies a bit of a wang but worth it.
