      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 .

I left a response for you in the URL forum. But like Skeets said Fleet has the 10 pack plus 2 jigheads. Sportsmans Warehouse and Scheels have the 12 packs of bodies. Gander have a few too last time I was in but have very limited color selection.

I was fishing them on a Thorne Bros Perch rod but any med action rod with a fairly light tip will due. I've also been fishing with 6lb mono or Fireline Crystal ice.

Good Luck in your search. I was hoping to makle a day trip today but couldn't find someone to go with last minute. Maybe I'll make it up for a day or fishing next Saturday. So today I'm cleaning house and working on making a few turkey slate calls. laugh.gif

Go down to the Berkley store in Iowa. Was down there a couple of weeks ago and bought several packs of power minnows for $1.93 per pack of 10! What a store. I bought over $400 worth of tackle and paid $117 for it. Well worth the drive.

Thanks for the post, Borsch....we hooked up with several packs at Sportsmans...along with some very reasonable rods....we've managed some comical breaking incidents this year...tooo few on fisH! A few of us are hoping to tempt the crappies on URL over our spring break....hoping for a real cold snap.... grin.gifgrin.gif

Have you had much luck with the power minnows open water walleye fishing? I've always used live rigs or stick baits....thanks for the speedy posts!

I've not targeted eyes with them open water. Although given the success I've had on eyes with other plastics both open and hard water I'll be giving them a try this year.

Good Luck when you make it up. I'm hoping that I can still make one more trip up there this comming weekend if I get enough of my "Honey Do" items completed at home. Although, since my honey would likely be coming up with me I'll stand a little better chance of making it up. wink.gif

Yes they are great rods. Although no spring bobber needed for those URL slabs. I even had one rise 4 ft to hit my bait so fast that he pushed it an additional three feet up. I had the rod held high over my head and was standing on my tippy toes trying to reel and keep tension on it. When I landed it the slab had that 2" power minnow so far down it's throat I had to get the forseps out to remove it.

My wife gave my new Scotty's Custom Rods deadstick a workout that weekend. It also sports a Thorne Bros deadstick blank. Very nice.

Good Times. smirk.gif

Yah I know. I had one on my Sweet Thing Thorne Bros rod most of the winter. They are essential when the bite is light.
