      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 .

live minnows in lake superior?

Recommended Posts

I always thought it was illegal to use live minnows in lake superior but I have seen people doing it from time to time, so I am just seeking some clarification, can you use live minnows fishing in lake superior? I would have to guess no.

Thanks Capt. Blaine, this is good to know. I am surprised that I have hardly ever seen anyone using live minnows. I would think there would be more? Do you have to be any distance from where a tributary enters the lake?

I am pretty sure that the live bait regs are the same as any non designated trout lake. I think you can fish with minnows IN the river if you wanted to. I know over in chequamigan bay everyone uses minnows. There are laws against possesing or transporting LIVE smelt, but any minnow you buy in a bait shop should be ok to use. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

There are no distance laws against the use of live bait around tributaries. But in some of the North Shore streams where they are designated trout waters you may not use minnows. These streams are marked with signs to inform you if they are designated trout streams. Like Quickstrike said you may use minnows in the St. Louis.
