      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 .

Jigging for Notherns

Recommended Posts

WildFan10

What do you guys suggest is the best way to jig for Norterns? I typically do a lot of panfishing and the leave the northern and walleyes for the tip-ups. I haven't really tried jigging for northern or walleye too much. I have heard jigging spoons are good, but any other tips would be helpful. I usually fish 12-15 ft. of water where I go. Thanks.

I typically use a jigging spoon and wire leader. I like swedish pimples and jig-a-whoppers. Sometimes I just use a quick strike rig like you'd use on a tip up. I tip with a shiner or sucker depending on how the bite is working. Time of year really dictates where you catch them, but most of the time shallower is better.

Jigging spoons are great. I like large airplane jigs with a chunk of meat on them. I have a 36" heavy rod that I use and head out that way. I like the depth you're searching. I typically stay in the 8-15FOW depending on the weedline. I will usually have a tipup within 50ft as a "less active" meal and then do the aggressive jigging.

Ditto on the jigging spoons. My favorites are a hammered gold spoon & an Angle Eye in green. Another option is Rapalas, I have a perch-colored one that works well, but that gets expensive fast if you lose a few! I've had better luck without a leader, just using 8-10 lb. Fireline & re-tying after each fish. Which reminds me, I didn't do that...the last two outings. grin.gif
