      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 .

Northern on crappie jigs

Recommended Posts

Last year my dad hooked into a huge northern. It wasn't on a tip up, though we had tip ups. It hit his tiny crappie jig. Why would a northern choose a crappie minnow over a big sucker or shiner? Does this happen a lot on upper Red. Just wondering.

Yep, It happens a lot on URL. Theres nothing quite like a 15 pounder on 2 pound test line. Check out the Waskish Minnow Station website for the picture of the monster I caught and released a couple years ago. Good Luck, Polar Bear smile.gif

The one in the picture was actually caught on 4 pound, but still a real blast. Surprisingly it came up through the hole very easily. The toughest part is getting their head started up, this one actually swam up like she was gonna jump right out on the ice wink.gif Only took a minute or so. Best of luck. Polar Bear

Yep, lots of big pike on crappie jigs. They're out in 13-14 feet eating perch, I figure. Since it's such open water, no weeds or rocks, really, unless you're on the cribs, you can get those pike in on light line if you're patient and if everyone else in the house reels up so there are no tangles.
