      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 .

Just wanted to get some thoughts on what you guys consider your "go to"/favorite lures, jigs, baits, etc. for open water. Lakes or Rivers.

I'm not a pro like Jamison, but in the past, when I used to fish a LOT, I had favorite, "go-to" baits for fishing bass. I suspect that as I'm fishing more, this will not change. Jig worm - hand's down. 1/8 to 1/4 oz black mushroom jig head with any color 6 inch plastic worm - as long as it's purple and a Berkley powerbait. I loved this bait to get a sense of what the lake is doing.

When fishing walleye - I loved to lindy rig - lots of fun, and productive. I also loved to fish Shad Raps and spinner rigs when I would take out people who didn't fish as much (which has been me the past couple years)

When fishing for camp meat - enough for a fish fry on vacation for 20 plus people - many, whom only fish 1 week a year (on vacation) - I tie on Rattlin' Raps, find the nearest weedline and hang on. That usually puts some fish in the basket. I have baskets full in my garage.

depending on what kind of water you are on, really sets the variance I think. In extreme Southern Minnesota, our flat mudholes really spank the cranks, pretty much all season, but note presentation.... speed is everything. Start slllloooooooowwwww and gradually build speed during summer, the back it down again and cast come fall. And my favorite of the year is the slow bottom drag of a jig and minnow as slow as you can go.

Hit some structure and I need lessons!

Thanks but I'm far from a "pro".

Note: my "list" is for walleyes only. Anything else, well, then my list would be a lot shorter, only to probably include a lawn chair and cooler.
