      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 .

You will have a great time. I have a cabin across the bay from Bucks. Fishing for northerns should be great right in front of the resort and anywhere in the reed beds of the bay itself. Walleye should be readily available within reasonable distances from the resort also. The folks at the resort will provide good information, and don't miss stopping at Reed's in downtown Walker. You'll also want to check out the Fishing Hall of Fame in Walker.<P>------------------<BR>

Mike J.<BR>You forgot to tell him to bring a big charge card or a fat check book when going into reeds. It's not that it is expensive but more like having everything a guy would want.

Good advice on the trip to <BR>Reed's. They have good prices....but better than that, they have one of everything in every color made that a fisherman MUST have in order to be the complete angler.

Being, normally, a Walleye troller I am used to using crawler harnesses etc. Any opinion on what is more successful w/ northern in the area? rappalas, shad raps, spoons, spinners?<BR>Perch colors, I assume work well and also bright orange/chartreuse?<BR><p>[This message has been edited by mike d (edited 02-24-2001).]

I've had excellent results on northerns pitching spinner baits right in the reed beds. No real preference on colors. Larger rapalas and spoons have been good along the river channel and weedline edges in front of Buck's resort also. Perch pattern are always good. Bucktails are always a good choice, with the additional bonus possibility of a Muskie being available.

Thanks for the post on the spinnerbaits into the reeds etc. I hadn't thought of those.<P>Any idea how large they should be for medium to large pike? I saw some that are 1 oz musky types but thought those might not attract normal size pike, bass, walleye to hit?<P>Mike<BR>

I personally have better success with the 5/8 or 3/4 oz sizes. It seems like you get more activity with these. The larger sizes may produce fewer, but larger fish. Guess the best thing to do is try a variety and then stick with whatever works the best.
