      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 .

First time fishing the river

Recommended Posts

I kind of decided today that I was going to do something wild & crazy & drive up & fish the rainy river this weekend. I have never done any river fishing before & was just wondering if anyone could give me a few pointers on jig size or bait or anything else that might help me out. I have just pretty much fished the shallow lakes here in sw mn, so I'm sure this trip will be a whole different animal. I think I will pretty much be targeting walleyes, but if a stray pike or two show up, thats fine too. Thanks Fellers!

I usually fish the rainy river year round. I'm not sure where you are planning to do your fishing but around the birchdale area seems to be a good spot from what i have heard. Usually i use about a 1/2 oz jig tipped with a shiner for the eyes and i am sure you can get a few pike in there too. The water depth is righth around 10-12' and there may be a layer of slush. If you can try drilling a few holes and see if you can fish the edge of the slush this seems to be the best area and it is alot easier reaching bottom...good luck you may also want to contact tearin lips i hear he will be down there this weekend maybe he has some more tips?

Thanks for the tip. I fished for 5 days on the river & did pretty good every day & had a ball doing it.

I used 1/2 oz jig head tipped with a shiner. I dropped it til it hit the bottom & then set the bobber stop about another two feet above that point. I didnt jig constantly, but would jig one line, let it set a bit then jig the other. Seemed like they bit better right away in the morning. Thats about all I know!, hope it helps.
