      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 .

St. Croix Basics

Recommended Posts

OK, I'm going to be out on the St. Croix soon, & would like to have it as an option in the late fall now that I've bought a little bigger boat this spring. One problem: I'm completely clueless. Never been on a river before. Would anyone want to give a newbie the thirty-second tour of basic walleye fishing on the St. Croix? It would be greatly appreciated!

Maximum12.......Best advice I can give you is to read some of the past posts that are on the board,all technics have been covered during the open water season.Next get a map of the Croix,Hotspots makes one for the lower Croix Stillwater to Prescott.Or the lakemaster chip has it on there if you have that,however the htspots map has some good reading along with it that will help you get started.Good luck this fall,fishing should be great.

A Jig and minnow are really good producers, I personally like lindy riggin the best, fishing around the bridges I 94 the channel towards stillwater or prescott area were the miss and croix meet are good fall areas and easy places to start, there's alot of river but with a graph or locator your well on your way, plus fall fishing on the river is as good as it gets anywhere! cool.gif

croixeyes, I'll look into the HotSpots map, that sounds like a great place to start. I'm still sifting through the posts, there's a lot of good info along with a lot of stuff I don't get because of river references that I'm slowly picking up.

Walli, I've heard the rivers are great in the fall, thus my new quest. grin.gif

You will save yourself 2-3 years by fishing with someone who is familiar with river basics and the Croix in particular. You may even want to consider hiring a guide for a day to help you. It has literally taken me 4 years of regular fishing to get all of the patterns figured out. Ma ny people give up before realizing what a great fishery the river really is. It is awesome in the Spring and Fall!

TrollerX, a friend & I have talked about going out on the St. Croix or Mississippi with a guide next spring, I think that's a great idea to shorten the learning curve.

Although I've been fishing lakes around here for eight years & haven't figured them out yet, so I'll probably need even more help...
