      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 .

yes cd's are fine

jigging spoons also work great

as well as whistlers and thumpers

jigging raps are also great at times

i fish spoons/raps with 10lb...

jigs/cds with 6lb....

but i use a 12lb leader....

a fish over 10 lbs can put a big bite on your line

when it has swallowed your offering completely

you are driving up here for a fish of a lifetime

don't let a few head shakes get in your way

Thanks Manitoba, 12 mono leader? I usually use 6 ib test and then a swivel 6 ib again and then my jigging spoon or chubby. Would I just replace my second strand of line to 12 ib mono. Then you just tip the spoons with a tail or head or do you used the entire shinner. I really appreciate the help. I would like to be ready when I get up thier. We would like to make this an annual trip. Thanks again!!!

12-18 inch leader....don't forget

the next bite could be a 13-14-15lb fish

safer on the teeth

whole salted shiner wrapped around all 3 tines on a jigging spoon....not really a finess bite when they are on spoons

if you feel a bite the hook is in its mouth

sometimes you have to tease them up though

chubby or rap tail half on the bottom treble

Travel will all depend on snow cover conditions. If the snow cover is significant snowmobiles is the way to go. If it isn't much of an issue a 4 wheeler or pick-up truck

will work fine.

You must always take into account that in order to locate fish, you must have the capability to relocate when called upon to do so. This little rule of thumb is crucial and is the difference of tasting the thrill of success or the humilation of defeat. As the times draw near, I will give accurate updates on snow cover and fishing conditions.
