      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 .

I use it all the time and do quite well with it. I really like their fake maggots and the smaller power shiners work well at times too. I use a lot of the gulp crawlers in the summer and a ton of the power and gulp shiners and smelt. I really like them when its cold out. I dont have to get cold wet hands digging for minnows.

I have some of those Gulp maggots in several colors and havent gotten as much as a nibble using them. I dont know if Im using them wrong or what, but Ill throw a waxie on the same jig and pull fish.

If it weren't for Gulp, my Lac Seul trip would cost me more money, because 17 of us would end up using many many more leeches that we do now. We use 80% plus Gulp minnows on our jigs and "fish eat it".

I hear ya muc33. We also use the Gulps up on Lac Seul, and they work great. We've had the best bites on orange and natural colors. The eyes just seem to like em!

muc33...you mean to tell me you don't like buying leaches for $50 and over a pound? eek.gif..lol, we always buy leaches when going to lac suel, but it definatly hurts the pocket book, Ill use gulp/powerbaits when its fast action, but nothing is as good as live bait in my mind.

I think waxies work alot better most of the time especially for crappies but have had some success using guld maggots. I still think berkleys regular power bait is much more effective and it also has way better action than gulp
