      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 .

Next weekend my family is heading up to Lutsen to ski. We are staying in a cabin right on the lake and I've been thinking about bringing my fishing pole. Would it be worth it to give it a try and catch some fish or should I just enjoy the skiing?

Since lake Superior is a boundry water, is anything thing still open beside pan fish?

I feel kind of dumb asking this, but I've never been up there.

Well I would spend the time with the family you never go wrong. But keep your eye on the forum and you will be able to see what is going on up here and what fish are biting and where.

If you plan on fishing the lake the fish that you are most looking for probably would be trout and cohos which both stay open year round. There are a lot of places to fish all the way up the shore but I am not sure what it looks like right now. However I can say some of the best looper days happen this time of the year when it starts to get warmer like it is right now.

Not too many loopers up by lutsen so you'll be pretty much targeting cohos which can be difficult. I suggest using a white looper bug tipped with a waxie under looper bobber or casting spoons. As skipper's kid said watch this forum. You could also look back through the archives for info on how to fish the shore if you've never done it.

You can't ski the entire time but you can't expect everyone to hang around while you fish either.

Get up early and put the coffee on. While everyone is sleeping, go out cast some spoons with one rod and a looper bug on a bobber with the other and watch the sunrise.

You'll either wake everyone up with the aroma of fresh coho and fried eggs for breakfast or everyone got up and drank all the coffee while you where out goofin around fishing.

      I resisted converting to braided lines. I liked my TrileneXL. Then, one day about four years ago I decided to spool up with fireline and at first I didn't think I could really feel much difference. Skeptical me, I always held on to that spool loaded with my trusty Trilene. One day I decided to put that mono back on and immediately could feel the difference. It felt like I was fishing with a rubber band. I went back to braided and haven't looked back.

      Last night a flock of geese buzzed the house and Finn went nuts! I think he wants to get out hunting as much as I do.

      Nice video Curt.  Looks like you are having way too much fun out there. Enjoy the time on the water.

      I will probably go out to my parents farm and set up in a pasture. The cattle have it mowed down pretty good. The geese seem tp pile in there pretty good. I won't hit it to hard, just get out a few times and hopefully get my son to get his first goose...

      I have really gone to line Gamma brand line. It is a copolymer. Soft like mono but abrasive resistant as well. I prefer it in #6 for game fish and #4 for panfish.... If I can't find it I fall back to trilene in XL.......
