      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 .

Are trailer hooks legal in Minnesota?

Recommended Posts

The regulations book says a treble hook is legal when part of an artificial lure, but does not mention if a trailer hook is considered a legal addition to an artificial lure.

Should be! Have you ran it in the water yet? I would think the smaller one would run odd due to larger one in front...

yeah i have ran it - has some pretty unique action but i think the reason they got rid of it was that it is pretty easy to have fish come unbuttoned. how about this rig

on each hook one of you favorite plastics. Is this considered one rig because the ball bearing swivel encompasses it all?

Ike- where did you get that Mann's bait form? That is pretty neat looking! It is more or less a funky swimbait. Probably be good around schoolers that are busting baitfish on the surface or have them pinned to a shore line.

On a side note- It would be nice to be able to use a jig as a carolina rig weight wouldn't it? Double up on some of those deep humps in late summer...

so if i took a 8 inch senko ripped it in half and put a half on each hook i am golden?

loop hole?

Nope- I would say not legal. If you took one senko, and embedded hooks in each end with the set-up you previously showed, that would be legal.
