      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 .

Cow-Dussa Mods

Recommended Posts

Alright, decided I really like the Medussa's By Chaos and obviously I really like the DCG's and other similiar bucktails, but after buying the Cow-Dussa I think the two good lures combined are horrible. Anyone else feel this way? I only threw it a few times so my judgement is only on my preference not the preference of the fish. Anyways I took the Cow off the Dussa and added a second treble hook on the back of the Cow part and BAM two good lures.

I like everything about it, but only when it is split in half. Seems front heavy and does not glide well on the jerk like bulldogs or other soft baits. Time will tell though. We will see how well they work together over time.

Smeese,

I'm curious what you didn't like about the Cow-Dussa?

Like mentioned, they do have their time and place. The Cow-Dussa definitely is not meant to be worked the same way as the Medussa though. So you aren't going to get it to glide or do the things you might be used to. With the blades, it's just not designed to do that. With some of the reports I have heard from this bait, I wouldn't give up on it quite so quickly. My suggestion would be to work it with more of a straight retrieve with much more subtle pumps of the rod or jerk-baits if you're looking to impart additional action in the bait.

I agree with Aaron.

I think its more of a night bait, but not entirely. I have never used one, but I would try slow rolling in a straight retrieve at night. A big fish bait.

Trolling I could see this being a maybe. I have not thrown the idea of them out yet, just not too pumped like I am with some other new products.
