      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 .

Hey Everyone, my parents and I are goingup sept 9th thrue the 23rd and iw as wondering if anyone could give me any type of info on whats goin on what to use. First of all I plan on fishing the mississippi in the brainerd area and was wondering what to use and where to look to catch some smallies.

I'm not a river rat by any means but I've always had good succes with small shallow running rapalas or crawfish style crankbaits. Some of our customers always talk of the tremendous smallie fishing in the fall flipping big redtail chubs on a plain hook/split shot rig. That will work great for big smallies and a few walleyes. I can't help you too much on the side of Bullheads.

jp, another good smalley bait is medium size frogs if you come across them. As far as bullheads, they are usually best in the cool spring water, and as a kid I caught tons of them in southern MN. I know there are some up here, but I don't waste my time locally since it hard not to find sunfish, perch, crappies, bass, walleyes, and northerns up here. I think they taste fine too...

I do not recomend eating fish from the river. They are biting right now on tubes and buzzbaits. Don't waste your money on theose expensive redtails, just get some cheap tubes and you will catch a ton of them, and big ones too.

You might check the regs, but I believe that you cannot keep smallies after Sept 1. It might be October 1.....

As far as eating the fish out of the river.... Lots of paper mills up this way. Even though they have cleaned up their act, there is still residual effects.
