      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 was just wondering, when out trolling and or casting crankbaits how much time do you give, when things are slow, before you tie on another? Have any of you ever tried a dozen or so differnt lures in one day on the water? I am just curious, I think at times I stick with certain lures for to long before moving onto something else. Thanks

When casting, I switch cranks every 5 - 10 minutes until I make contact. When trolling, I give myself a little more time as far as switching lures but rather play around with how much line I let out.

Otter, do you tie on directly to the lure or use a snaploc to exepedite the lure change? Thanks

A #1 or #2. cross lock. If there are two people in the boat start with one dark color crankbait and one light colored. If and when you make contact switch the other to that color but maybe a differant type crankbait. Keep doing this and you will find what they want. Make sure that all the bait will run at same depth your fishing.

Good call Muddog, I actually just pulled out my precision trolling book and checked out the running depth of the majority of my lures. Marked each lure in red perm marker as to the running depth. Thanks
