      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 .

I fish the Red Lake River quite a bit and have heard of people catching walleyes on frogs. I've tried to do it a few times by just using a plain hook with a weight tied about 3 feet up the line but have had any luck. Just wondering if anyone has any ideas for rigging with frogs. Thanks.

I like to hack the rear legs off and cut the belly open. grin.gif I don't know if it helps or not, but thats what I do and it seems to work alright. I will then hook the frog right through the front of the head and toss it out. BTW a 3 foot leader is plenty long...my leaders or distance from my swivel to hook is usually only about 20"'s long or less. Unless your fishing really clear water, shorten it up some. It'll be less likely to get hung up too.

If you're not having alot of luck, try a new location. Sometimes it's not the bait, but the spot that isn't working! That can go the other way too, so who knows.

Good luck.

My best luck for nice Eyes on the Red Lake River is simple Sucker minnows. Just dont cut them up like you do for cats and use the smaller suckers. Cat rig with 4" sucker just hooked throuth the head. Some times I will use a floater rig too.
