      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 .

URL Presentations

Walleye #1

Myself and three buddies are heading up to URL over the weekend of the 9th to put in some fishing for eyes, crappies, and pike. What are some of your favorite presentations or colors? I imagine glow red is a good start for the eyes and crappies. From the looks of previous posts, the deadstick presentation has been the ticket with the jigging spoons brining them in. We have never been there..so just looking to see if I need to update any of my tackle before we make the venture up North.

This might be a dumb question but what exactly do you mean by deadstick? Just a jig and crappie minnow sitting still? And then the other line has a bigger presentation and jigging it to attract?

Jig and minnow or more often a bare hook and minnow. Don't jig it, just let it sit there still. Attract them in with the jigging hook and when that spooks them away the minnow just hanging there not noving looks like and easy meal.

Curious if you use fatheads for all species too?

We tried both fatheads and crappie minnows last trip, but no success. With past experiences though, all we had to use was fatheads and that reeled in the crappies.

I too would be curious to know what baits are being used for walleye and crappie. In the past three years of Red Lake trips I have had only crappie minnows. I have done ok in the past but I am wondering if I need to get some small shiners or fatheads too.

Fished up there from thursday- sunday and the best presentation was a plain red hook just sitting under a bobber. I used a buckshot rattle spoon to attract them. I would mark them on my vex, and they would hit the dead stick every time. I maybe caught 2 fish jigging all weekend. 3 inches from the bottom and just wait. Fatheads, crappie minnows and sucker minnows were used.

We caught aprox. 100 walleyes,20 crappies, 2 northern and one perch.

Excellent in my book for the weather we had!
