      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 .

Tis the number of species of fish caught out of good old Silver Lake in a couple hours of fishing this past Sunday.

Black Crappie

White Crappie

Warmouth

Bluegill

White Bass

Smallmouth Bass

Largemouth Bass

Had 2 larger fish on (I’m thinking they were foul hooked carp, but never saw either of them)

Nothing huge and no pictures today. The warmouth was one of the fattest warmouths I’ve seen. I fished 3 different locations and all produced fish. The Exude Micro Shad green & black was the hot color. I started with white and put a few on the ice, but after the switch to green / black, the bite took off. I had a blue 1/32 colarless jig head with custom glitter.

I also took a few fish off a Mr. Twister Lil’ Spinner Form #0 with a 1/8 oz pink jig head and a 2" pink & white Exude twister tail.

I found fish in all depths. The best fishing was probably 3-4’ down under a small float over 6 FOW. I also caught fish in as little as 1 FOW.

Great times, close to home. Great place to take kids. Grab an old bag of bread as well and toss some too the geese.

i thought this post was referring to the movie. i though to myself "oh no tyler is giving his first movie review and it is on THAT movie" i like this topic much better. 7 is a great number of multi species to shoot for. i know several other guys who fish rivers and that is usually the number they shoot for. nice going, ike

So do you work this jig and tail under a slip float?

I use Lindy/Thill GoldMetal Mini-Stealth # 2 floats. They are slip floats, but you don't need the slip knot. They have a piece of rubber tubing that keeps the line fixed to the float.

By far the best float I have ever used. The rubber slip never works for me, but I use them as a slip float and they are far and away the best. I get nervous using them around snags because I'm afraid I'll lose them. grin.gif

I thread the bobber on first, then thread on the rubber tubing (the line with go through both if that makes sense). Then simply push the rubber tubing over the bobber eyelet shaft area.

WoW, I'm not sure if that makes any sense, but I'll go with it.

They make that same float with a quick attach and release. That way you don't have to break your line to fish the same rig with out a float.

Yep, those are the Lindy ones. I've heard that Lindy is no longer making those bobbers, so you will only be able to get the Thill ones. Thill is owned by Lindy, so it kinda makes sense.

I do like the quick attach / release clip that the Lindy bobbers provide. I like the multi color as well. I cleaned FF out of the Lindy bobbers about a month ago. I think Gander only carries the Thill ones now.

Nice catch of fish Tyler. I never seem to pull much of anything out of Silver Lake when I fish it. If one looks at the DNR lake report you will find the crappie numbers to be very, very high.

The thill slip is definately my favorite and have pretty much used it exclusively now for about 3 years now. Back when I first started using them I had no idea what the rubber piece was for and always used it as a slip bobber. If you use one enough you will find that the rubber will start to break down. Gander has replacement sheaths you can get and cut down. They work really nice.
