      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 .

Favorite Walleye Jig

Recommended Posts

I like Cabelas Walleye Wobble jigs, Whistler jigs are good ones too, tipped with a minnow in the spring. Later in the summer I like Northland Phelps floaters with a leech

I would suggest getting one of those combo boxes that has different sizes and colors so you can find what works on your lakes. Also Lindy now has those new jigs where the different colored lead heads clip onto the hook. Interesting concept.

I'm trying the lindy jigs this season, so far the hook size is the only thing that is a little off. But it is very early in the season.

Do you mean that the hook seems too big if you are using a smaller jig head?

Haven't used em,(New Lindy Ex-Change Jigs) but the hook looks huge, esp. if using the 1/8 oz head. Looks like an 1/8 oz of "hook" with an 1/8 oz head. Anyone using them with much success??

I've been using the Phelp's Half-Face Jigs for 6 years now, and I barely ever find myself using anything else! Great hooks, wonderful paint, and the stand-up style works for every situation!

I was using a 3/8oz. Whistler jig chartuse/orange and added a small treble stinger to it. Put on a whole crawler and stuck the stinger about four inches from the jig and drifted with it and caught walleye's better than spinner/crawler's or plain single hooked leeches.

Caught 2-26.5" eye's, and a 27 7/8" eye on this jig!

where i fish pink seems to be the ticket. type doesnt matter as much as color, usually use standard gumball, smallest possible for wind/ current. cant figure it out because they slam the darker colored swims and raps, and ironically the bigger the better. might have to try the lindy if the hook is a little bigger.

It depends on where I'm fishing, but Fuzz-E-Grubs and the Hair jigs from Moore's Bait & Tackle are usually what I'm using.

Multi-colored jigs are probably my favorite. The color changes seems to provide a little bit of a "flash" that catches the fish's attention a little better at times. Orange/Chart, Black/White(Pearl) with a little red dot on the top, Black/Red.

Super-glo chart. seems to always be a good producer too.

i just got home from leech and used the new lindy jigs. LOVED them. could change sizes very fast and get back to fishing without having to cut off and retie. it was very windy and changing hooks was a pain.
