      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 .

Mushroom head jigs from gopher tackle, w/ a 4" grub (color not important as long as it's pumpkin wink.gif) Don't be afraid to throw some swim baits like the storm wild-eye's etc, especially later in the summer, they seem to really like the larger baits.

I can't imagine that a tube would not be a wonderful choice as well.

I'm sure a tube would be great; I've never used one up there yet, just because I've been catching them w/ the other baits, but I'm going to give them a try this year.

Green northland jig with a white mister twister grub tail on a straight retrieve always produces on Mille Lacs.

We catch them all the time on bucktails, spinnerbaits, and crankbaits while musky fishing!

As far as baits to target them, have had good luck with tube baits and rapalas. Suspending husky jerks #10 or #12. #5 and #7 shad raps. Crawfish, firetiger, and regular minnow colors.

Tubes have always produced in calmer conditions for me. When there is a little wind try an inline spinner like meps aglia or blue fox vibrax #3 or #4 with hair. Use a swivel to lessen line twists. also for topwater try a matzou spitnsputter or a rapala skitterprop.
