      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 .

How is the Lake on the Weekends?

We are planning a trip over to the river / Pepin area for Saturday. How will the boat traffic be this time of year. I know we have the memorial day weekend working against us but I am hoping that it won't be too bad.

Another question is if I am planning on pulling 3-ways with a floater, how long do I want the drop line and how long should I make the leader to the floating jig? Also if you could give me a clue as to what color works best for the area.

Thanks guys I am looking forward to giving you a successful report when we return.

The better the weather the more boats you'll see. The pleasure boats can cause some big wakes and they'll be out. As for the drop on your 3 way I usually go about 1 foot and with the floater I'll go 3 feet. Firetiger is probably the best all around color I go with. Increase the floater length if the fish are more suspended. Try diff. lengths and colors if You are fishing with another person. Good luck. B.T.W. don't be afraid to pull crankbaits.

Green or a chartreuse colored Phelp’s Floater with about a 3 foot leader does the trick for me. As far as traffic, I was on the water by 6 am and I took the last parking spot. Traffic on the lake wasn't that bad. Get on the water early on this weekend as I am sure the pleasure boats will be everywhere later on during the day.

Thanks for the help guys. I have never fished the river before and hopefully it will become a regular event. I will let you know how we do. Any other tips or hints would be great, or better yet any ideas on the best place for bait and where to put in?
