      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 .

Deep Water Tip ups

Recommended Posts

JohnD

Hey guys, going up for the second straight year to LOTW, this year we're fishing out of Wheelers point, my question is, is it worth it to try a tip up with dead bait for northerns? Last year we tried, and didn't have any luck. I've thought about setting a tip up outside the shack with a dead smelt near the bottom, but I don't want to waste my second line, any recommendations?

P.S., I don't know how deep the water will be, but I would guess around 25.

thanks

I've tried doing that before and not had any decent luck. Did catch one northern jigging a minnow one time. So I would keep that other line for jigging. Just my 2 cents.

I would'nt waste the second on a tip-up line unless you were fishing next to a good rock structure in the deep water.

I have yet to have my tip-up flag go up to a fish using big golden shiners or dead smelt for bait, only the wind makes your flag go up on LOW! And that is many years of trying!

I think it is a waste of time ifin'z you ask me!

I would just use a rattle reel set up for pike and using the biggest golden shiners you can find and fish that in your house as the big golden shiner will attract all kinds of fish to your jigging spoons, and you never know when misses big esox-maximus goes for that shiner!

Good Luck! grin.gif
