      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 .

taylor lake east of hill city, it depends on the weather, its a mile off 200, so if the road is still frozen, its a easy drive to the parking area, then you walk about 100 yards to the lake. I will let you know if I go.

Bryan, you do a great job with your videos.

 

Still hoping to get into the rainbows before the ice goes out but I've been having a hard time shaking the crappie bug.

Thanks Wanderer! Ya hard to shake that crappie bug when your on some good late ice action. I hung up my gear for the year and was planning to take the kayak out after some crappies this weekend but now the lakes froze back up. What the heck is going on this year lol.

Normally I'm all exited for ice and would ice fish over open water any day but not right now I'm ready for open water. Maybe I spent to many bills at Cabela's last weekend on open water stuff.:)

I can't say that I have one.  The last time I fished put and take rainbows the smallest Cicada worked well.  I went to the pits yesterday evening but was armed with the same jigging spoons and gear I used for crappies the couple times out.

 

Usually something in shiny silver will do, like Bryans Castmaster spoon.

 

A note on the pits: some of the roads and lake access trails are closed right now due to "poor conditions or maintenance needs".  I didn't get to fish what I wanted to.  I didn't try the same pit as Bryan though.  Just sayin' iffen you go, allow enough time for a plan B.

 

Welcome to the forums walleyeslayer. :cool:

I was using a silver kastmaster. Seems to work great for me. Open and hard water.
