      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 .

Big Pike Tips?

Recommended Posts

I'm headed to Red on Sunday. Anyone have any tips for catching big pike? Guessing sucker minnow halfway down would work best.

Almost seems the big pike come in when I'm fishing for something else! I invested 10 times more time this year than ever before going for the pike and ended up being the 1st time I've been skunked pike on Red:( Then when I went for pike it seems like I can't keep the eyes off my stick?? Funny how that works. That's not to discourage only for me to whine a li'l.

I have made 3 trips to Red this year and used Tip ups each time. Caught some nice pike (27" and 28") on the South side in early Jan. Last week with the cold on day two I didn't set up any tipups as I was tierd of them freezing up. So wouldn't you know it at 2 in the afternoon cought a 34" Gator on a fourage minnow and fat head in the house. I was using a med sucker minnow about 6 ft down in 14 ft of water with the tip ups. Good luck, it took me 10 min with many runs to get that 34 incher in the hole. I would love to see what one of them 40+ would do :):)

Posts: 9 How can I post pictures? I have 2 pics of a tip up trip of my dad catching a 44" northern 28lbs and myself catching a 41" 25lbs all on the same 5 day trip. the 28lber had an 18inch carp in its belly that was freshly eaten that I now have mounted in its mouth on a dual mount with the 25.

and Upper Red Lake does not have a carp population.

It's possible this guys doesn't know the difference between carp and redhorse or sucker. My guess is devils lake...however, 28 pound pike might be a ND record? confused.gif
