      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 .

Heading up to the river in the morning from Virginia. Anyone have a recommendation of a bait shop that's along the way with minnows?

Y-Not station in Pelland. I'm sure there are some in I-Falls as well.

Neither Up North Outdoors nor the Y-not have Rainbows. You'll want to find them along the way somewhere. They make a big difference. $48 per quart at Lucky's in Baudette.

That's weird, because I called them this afternoon and they said they had rainbows, shiners and crappie minnows.

If one were to estimate, how many dozen rainbows would that $48 quart give you??

Well a spottail shiner runs about a 44 count (that's 44 dozen per gallon). Now if the rainbows (creek chubs) are graded for walleyes they run about the same. That would be 11 dozen in a quart or $4.30 a dozen. Now if they are left as a "river run" mixed with mud minnows and smaller sizes the count can go as high as 56, but then you have bunch of little minnows and we found the larger presentation was working better.

That would realy suck if the DNR required you to dump them out as you left the water.

How do you keep the water in the bucket from freezing while you're fishing? Sorry, I just had to. LOL
