      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 .

What's working

Recommended Posts

I'm psyched - only another week before I head up. I bought a couple of rattlin flyer spoons and also frostee glow jigs to use up there. Any suggestions on what else I should be bringing up to try? What about bait? I was going to bring waxies and some fatheads. Sounds like I'll need some shiners as well for walleyes. Last time I was up the minnows I bought were long skinny things.

Also, I have one buddy that is borrowing me his new Marcum and another buddy letting me use his Vexilar and camera. Can't wait to get up there. Keep the reports coming.

Where are you going out of? And what do you plan on targeting the most?

I'd reccommend buying just your ordinary fatheads. Try different combinations though, because I have heard of quite a few things that have worked on that lake this year.

Staying in one of Don and John's house out of Rogers. I have no idea where they will be located. I am bringing my wife and two kids 11 & 9 up and staying overnight. First time for them. They all got new ice fishing poles for Christmas. I want to be sure that they catch fish and have fun. Will be targeting mostly walleye since they seem to be what is biting the most. I wouldn't mind a mess of crappie and perch as well. I will have at least one tipup out as well.

Hope you and the family has a great time.. I'm sorry, but I don't have much of a report for you on Rogers. I was able to pick up the fact that their road is in great shape though.

Check out some of Jonny P's reports below.. He's got some in-depth details on how he's been catching crappies.

I have not been to Red yet this year but in past years I liked to use glow pink. Try jigging with a pink Genz worm.

Spent tues pm & wed am-pm up there. We caught alot of eyes on #6 orange hooks and smaller sized fatheads, targeting the craps. The bigger fatheads produced more slot fish. Jigging would bring them in for a look but plain hooks would seal the deal. We caught three norts, two came on jigging spoons. The pike seemed pretty willing to bite. We did better getting away from the crowd, during the day. Not much after dark, but we were a bit closer to the main road that I prefer. Green or red glow worked but nothing on the blue glow seemed to do it. Off road wasn't too bad, only got stuck twice. If you don't get stuck on Red your'e not trying hard enough. We were at the end of WW road

What about for the pike if i target them, frozen smelt and suckers? That is my plan but if anyone has any better ideas that would be great.
