      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 .

Mousies vs. Waxies

Hello fellow anglers! I was at Bass Lake bait shop picking up some [PoorWordUsage] minnows and decided to try out some of those "mousies". It was the first time i've actually seen them, needless to say they outfished [PoorWordUsage] minnows and waxies for me that day. Do you all prefer mousies or waxies? What kinda success have other people had on them? I'm a true believer in the mousy now!

I am from Michigan org. and you could get both waxworms and mousies. I find here I dont find mousies much. I thing they out fish waxworms and are even great spring time bed fishing baits. Just dont leave the in the warm to long (like I did once as a kid) they turn into bees.

i'm not exactly sure where mousies come from...but if you check in the ICE FISHING forum there was a recent post about this too that I stumbled upon. Someone posted pics of waxworms, mousies, euros and spikes. So you can tell the difference.

I stumbled across some mousies when I was buying euro larvae to hit my crappie spot. Looked very interesting so I bought a tin of em, turned out pretty well, maybe the little tail on the bottom attracts the fish. Who knows, all I know is that they worked. I stick with euro larvae though, red ones in fact. I catch lots of crappies on them, small ones and even up to 13"s on them. I stick with what works! I have found from experience I get more crappies on euro larvae then waxys, why I couldn't tell you, just my experience.

I haven't seen mousies in years! Anyway, does color truly matter for euro's? I always put 3 on (1 of each color). Just curious if any particular combination of color(s) may work better than another.

I don't think it TRULY matters.. The jigs I use for crappies all have red hooks, so i throw red euros on jus to cover it up even more. but when I can't get all red euros, I throw on any color, does the trick for me

      I resisted converting to braided lines. I liked my TrileneXL. Then, one day about four years ago I decided to spool up with fireline and at first I didn't think I could really feel much difference. Skeptical me, I always held on to that spool loaded with my trusty Trilene. One day I decided to put that mono back on and immediately could feel the difference. It felt like I was fishing with a rubber band. I went back to braided and haven't looked back.

      Last night a flock of geese buzzed the house and Finn went nuts! I think he wants to get out hunting as much as I do.

      Nice video Curt.  Looks like you are having way too much fun out there. Enjoy the time on the water.

      I will probably go out to my parents farm and set up in a pasture. The cattle have it mowed down pretty good. The geese seem tp pile in there pretty good. I won't hit it to hard, just get out a few times and hopefully get my son to get his first goose...

      I have really gone to line Gamma brand line. It is a copolymer. Soft like mono but abrasive resistant as well. I prefer it in #6 for game fish and #4 for panfish.... If I can't find it I fall back to trilene in XL.......
