      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 .

It is the time of month where HOPPERTUNITY knocks for trout. i went to my favorite river about 20 minutes from rochester and man was it a good time. They really wanted the bright green hopper and a big one too size 8. I was supprised at the hopper bight because of the early morning rains and cloud cover but the big daddys were out and about. Now nothing too terribly big caught one 13,14 and 14 1/2. Had several others on but with the luck of the barbless they came unbuttoned. I just wanted to let you all know to get out there and throw a hopper. All lakes rivers and streams you can find some kind of fish right now that will be more than willing to snatch a hopper. ike

Nice report Ike,

Hopportunity knocked down the doors this morning for me as well.

A few questions...

Was the the Rebel hopper your using? Was it a hopper-popper (I like that) or did it have a diving lip? I'm new in the hopper world, so I really don't know what the options are out there. Have you found the poppers work better than the shallow diving hoppers? Are the fish taking these off topwater, or on the dive retrieve?

The hopper i was using was actually a fly. You can pick them up at Gander or Sports athority or ty your own but it looked alot like... (do a google search - orvis has some nice pics)

They are called terristrals (sp) but some common names for the fly are para madam X, Marshmallow hopper or daves hopper. but i have never tried a rebel hopper popper for trout but i notice by your pictures it worked. ike

other good hoppper patterns to use are the chernobyl hopper, Rainy's hoppper, Fat Alberts, and hoppper dropper patterns. Don't forget beetle patterns this time of year as well. They can often be a hot ticket.
