      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 .

Shiners or Fatheads

Hooked on LOW

Hey guys, just 9 more hours!!! Been packed for a week. My wife thinks I’m nuts. OK, how about some advise for a rookie. I am very curious to know if the productivity of shiners is that much greater than fatheads, or vise-versa. Does it really matter? Also we kept our shiner in fresh water last time up but they all died with in a few hours. Any ideas to help longevity. We are talking about not buying any at all. That is why I am asking.<BR> <P>Thanks.<BR>

Hooked, I was up a few weeks ago at Long Point and it did not seem to matter for the walleye and sauger but we got some true jumbo perch and they all came on the shiners. adam

My preference is shiners. When I buy bait I always get 2 scoops of shiners and 1 scoop of chubs. You always want both kinds but I've had my best fishing with shiners.

All I ever use is dead shiners ripped in 1/2.<P>I'd wager a dead torn shiner will outfish a whole live one any day of the week.
