      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 love them smile

I have a couple of Lindy's kits and found them very cool while using them on Pool 2 earlier this spring.

Definitely a must have (or a must try) for anyone who uses jigs and switches them to critique their presentation. smile

Yep when it clicks in place it stays untill you remove it. Have used them on a couple trips and never lost a head yet.

I think they're a neat idea ...... I also think that retying your line every so often is a good idea, especially if you're using mono or something else that's susceptible to cuts, abrasions and weakening.

I figure that I can clip off an old jig and retie a new one in about 15 seconds. Besides if I spent anymore on jigs this year the budget director would put a hole in my boat.

I am all for retying your jigs, but when changing from a paddle tail to a ringworm then trying a minnow when you see fish down on the sonar, it is nice quickly change the jig head size to achieve the proper drop and color change for the presentation within seconds. This of course if no snags have been had in the last hour or so grin

This is the hook:

You slide the jig on while aligning the slot on the jig head with the eye on the hook:

You can see the plastic clips coming down the bore I/D of the jig head:

Push a little further and "click" into place:

As you can see the little plastic clips snap into place holding the jig head on the hook:

I have used them and has not had a jig head come off. To remove the head all it takes is a firm tug on the head while holding the hook.
