      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 .

Does anyone have any suggestions for me on where to put the traps and how to set it up or anything?

Bait your trap with bread chunks or dried dog food,

If trapping a stream, try to position the openings so that they face into the current and close to some kind of cover.

On lakes or ponds position the traps close to weeds or other types of cover.

Remember, you must have a tag on your trap that has your name and address on it!

As far as I know it is only illegal to trap minnows in a trout stream. Unless you can get a DNR permit. ??

The best lakes for trapping minnows are generally the small lakes where freezeout occurs regularly on the larger fish. Minnows usually can survive and you won't get as many (or any) small panfish in the trap. Always a pain sorting your minnows from little sunnies---it's bad enough getting the sticklebacks sorted out!! Of course, there are some very desireable species of minnows that you can only get in rivers and streams. cool.gif
