      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 .

River Jigs?

Recommended Posts

MJCatfish

I was just wondering if anyone has a favorite river jig. I have used the regular round head and aspirin head jigs.
I've even twisted off the props on Whistler jigs, but this can get expensive. I would like to be able to fish medium to fast current with a jig that isn't 1/2 ounce or bigger. Does anyone have a unique jig that they like to use under the above conditions? (for walleyes) Thanks in advance.

MJ, that's a good question.
I'd like to see answer, I have same problem.
When I fish Mississippi, if I don't get close to a Downrigger Cannonball I cant bounce on bottom.

One thing I know for sure, use very thin line, since it will be pushed from current also, and this doesn't help.

I have had the same problem finding a jig that will cut through the current and allow you to fish with a lighter jig when the eyes are biting light.I am thinking of trying some darter head jigs.They have bullet shaped heads that look like they will cut the current well.
Like Valv said I try to use the thinnest line possible to help cut the current.Braids in 8lb test work well and increase your sensitivity.
