      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 .

Tackle box pic (updated 7/6)

Recommended Posts

I am looking for a big tackle box/bag for hanging big baits. Looking for something besides the plano or lakewood. I use a softside with several boxes right now and am looking for a little easier access. I saw a plexiglass one at the musky show a few years back, but i have not seen them since.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Thanks.

I bought a flambeau tackle box from Fleet Farm a couple years ago that was on clearance. They still carry them, but are cheaper at the end of the season. 50 spaces of lures not sure on price.

If money is an issue...I picked up 2-10' pieces of 5" PVC and cut it into 14" sections then fastened them together in a 3x4 grid. Threw on a spare luggage strap I had laying around and bada-bing. I gotta musky box that will fit any size of bait for 20 bucks (from creepers to pounders to bucky's). At any given point I could fit 50+ lures in there depending on the profile of the lure. What's nice is you can expand the case size by adding a few more tubes on there as needed. I'll try and snap a few photos when I get home. Just an idea.

I also did the 4" PVC pipe model, but found that it was a bit heavy. Instead what I did was take a $10 rubbermaid tub, drill a few holes in the bottom, and cut cheap downspout to fit inside. For about $20 I have a customizable box that can fit everything up to 14" Jakes.

I thought about doing something like that around the front seat pedistal. Do the hooks tangle alot. What did you use to connect them together?

The Dunwright is nice but very heavy. I replaced mine with a soft sider Flambeau that I really like.

That's my next plan is to put a few around the front pedestal. I haven't had too much of a problem with hook tangling. The trick is to place lures in the box with the belly of the lure facing the tube in order to keep the hooks a bit more manageable. Here's my plans that I used while constructing, I'll take a pic of the final product when I get a chance this evening.

The justencase boxs are great boxs. I just got mine and mine was the biggest one he has ever built. They hold alot of lures and you can see the lures you want plus these thing are made of polycarbonate which if bonded right almost indestructuble. Call Bob or email him and he will customize anything you want.

I got the (241216D) model which the dimensions are 24L*12W*16H;36 divider sections. I got two inches of height added on to mine which is perfect for the pounders and super model cowgirls and other double bladed baits. The box that I got was 180 bucks not including tax because I picked it up at his house so that shipping rates weren't outrageous. I also got the drawer on the bottom. Great purchase. If i knew how to get pictures up I would definitley show you the box I got loaded with all my stuff.

Setterguy, there is always next year.

I cut notches to keep the baits in place. If you look real close you can see them, not the greatest pic.

Nice box Will. Is that Plexiglass that you used? How tall did you make her? Nothing like good ol' DIY!

    •   I think that's exactly what I should have done. It would have probably reached me sooner. 
    • I'm thinking of selling my IceGator and going with the Strikemaster. Looking at the Strikemaster, it is not as bulky and heavy. The IceGator does cut ice like butter, especially with a Strikemaster 224 bit!
    •   The default temp is 360 for the NuWave 36001 Brio I mentioned above, but it can be programmed as high as 390. I absolutely agree that it does make a difference for certain things to get those extra 30-40 degrees.
    • yes i did i messaged him directly outside of the post
    • Looks like the Hawks might be without Crawford the rest of the season.   http://nhl.nbcsports.com/2018/01/16/report-blackhawks-concerned-crawford-could-miss-remainder-of-season/
    • We use a line voltage thermostat, with it set in the "cool" position.  Once it hits the set temp the thermostat kicks the fan on, until it gets below the set point.  Works pretty well.  
    • Strange I received our notification for WI yesterday but the page does not show any update. Either way WI permits are out. Already planning and getting blinds ready for this spring    
    • I have not used one, but they have attracted my attention. I have a wheelhouse but think this would be a better early ice option. Surprised at how pricey they are, but aluminum must be spendy! I think your ability to pull with the snowmobile will vary with snow depth, slushy conditions etc..... Studs will probably be helpful?  If you go that route, report back how it works!
    • I finally used it I was just testing it out getting the feel of things so didn't follow a recipe just cut up some Yukon gold potatoes zucchini onion and threw in a bunch of chicken breast. 1 can of cream of chicken and 2 cups of beer. Actual cook time after pressurized 12 mins. Some of the most tender chicken I have ever had.   Next day I made some jasmine rice and cubed some chicken breast and coated with sesame chicken sauce. Didn't think the sauce would steam good on its own so I put half cup of water as well. Then drained liquid when itt was done cooking and tossed them in more sauce before eating.   All in all I like it so far pretty easy stuff.
