      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 .

Bullheads for bait?

Recommended Posts

Kyle Sandberg

Has anyone ever tried using small bullheads for walleyes. I have a small pond loaded with them and was wondering if they are good for anything other than channel cats. Sure would be nice if they were.

Until a couple years ago a couple good friends of mine fished walleye tournaments accross the upper midwest. As I recall they did use the small (less than 2") bullheads for bait at times.

I have no idea if they are a seasonal bait (ie summer vs fall), but I think they were on the Mississippi/Missouri rivers when they used them.

So give'em a shot.

i have seen on tv, i believe it was ted takasaki fishing the mississippi with them, but i think he called them willow cats, or something like that. he showed how to hold them when hooking them so you don't get stung, so i'm sure thats what they were
