      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 .

Does anyone angle while spearing?

With the rule changes making this legal, are any of you taking advantage of this? I have been putting a hook in the live decoy to try and angle the bigger pike so I can release vs. kill them. Also have been keeping a ultra light pannie set up with me to catch the gills, crappies, bass etc. to get some action when times are slow. Lots of fun sight fishing the other species

I sight fish for crappies and northerns and try for the occasional bass. It is fun.

yea i do. it does get interesting, especially when those nords show more interest in the hook than a decoy, or chasing the fish you are reeling up.

Idid early in the season and had fun cathing some bass and jiging a daredevil for pike is a blast but the thought of tangleing all those lines always pop in to my head.

Havent brought the rod with on the last 5-6 outings.

I sometimes set a tip-up out for northerns as well. Gives you another area to cover. Gets you out of the house to stretch if the flag goes up!! \:\)

when i have other people in my house, since my house is so big, i am able to do that as well. Set up a tip-up out so the people that are in the house with me, will be able to have some action as well. Keeps people enjoying the fun of the sport.

Great way to enjoy those bigger fish. Rather than taking the spear to them...hook, line and release these bigger ones so we can enjoy them tomorrow and into the future. Or just watch them swim...either way is a great option. It seems as though the bigger pike are becoming more scarce all the time on some waters. Hopefully we can find ways (such as this) to help reverse that trend.

B420 I have been panfishing while I spear. The rule change is great.If I understand it right, you can only use 1 hook if you are spearing. So if you have a light rod down for panfish , you are not allowed to use a hook on your decoy minnow. It needs a harness.Somebody correct me if I am wrong.

McFin-

I haven't looked it up myself but had a retired guy tell me the same thing - can't have a hook on the decoy and a second pole in the water. Figured it was good info since the guy has a lot of time on his hands to figure out the laws.
