      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 .

Favorite Lure/ Jig for the big Red

Recommended Posts

I had some success with a red/white ring worm with a double tail. I had this rigged on about 3/8 ounce jig. I caught my biggest wally ever on this rig.

About 99% of the time I'm using 1) a small jig and plastic (with or without minnow), 2) a slip rig with a straight hook or a floating jig, or 3) a shallow running reef runner or a bomber long-A.

I would have to say either a creek chup with a plain hook or a sucker with a plain hook!!! The bigger the better but around 6 inches is always good!!!

I haven't used a lot of creek chubs, becuase you never used to be able to get them here. However, I did used to use a lot of 5-8 inch suckers. Big walleyes will definitely take baits that size. I also used to fish with a guy who used to throw a 9 inch crank bait all the time- and he caught plenty of walleyes on it.

As far as color goes- I mix it up quite a bit. I throw a lot of white, yellow, and orange. But every color of the rainbow has been the hot ticket at one time or another. Experiment and see what works for you on any given day. Also, experiment with size of jig/lure/bait. Some days big is the ticket while other days small will produce big results.

Whistlers in pink or white with sumo Fatheads is my pick in the spring. Second choice would be white twisters on a 1/8 oz pink jig rigged with a sumo fathead minnow.

Come post spawn the bigger femails will go for larger baits pinned on a short leeder on the bottom. I have caught a few big girls post spawn on whole Goldeye heads while fishing early cats, they feed on easy meals at this time.

Post spawn recovery kicks in and cranks start to do well as do swimming plastics like swim shads. Love that THUMP of a chubby walleye on a swim shad.

Jigs and minnows rule most pre-spawn river bites on rivers, more or less.
