      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 .

Bought this off e-b-a-y a month or so ago and would love to know what it is and where I can get more.

It's about the size of a mag dawg, but it weighs 18oz.

I think you meant 8oz, because that would be a tyrant jerkbait, made from a guide in wisconsin or michigan. I've seen them at reeds or gander. There's a video of this bait on muskies first with more details i think.

Wow that looks awesome... change up the head design and it might would appeal more to me... or I could use the plastic body on a Mag Spinnerbait that has trailer hook... that would work...

Nope positively not the Tyrant, and it IS 18 oz...

The seller also had a 9 oz version at the time and I'm kickiing myself for not getting those also.

Definitely nothing like a Tyrant. It looks similar to something that Bucher makes called a Grubby Joe. But it's not close to that big.

The Grubby Joe had alot different tail and it only came with one treble for the stinget hook, but thats what I was thinking too. I think Gander still carries the Grubby Joe, but that thing looks alot better.

18 oz... wow. that thing will dive in a hurry

Yeah I seen the Grubby Joe @ gander yesterday and it is very similar, but this things dwarfs the grubby.

wow. can't say i'm 100% sure but that's gotta be a small supplier. 1 pound head 2 ounce body. the other (not ordered) would be 8 ounce head 1 ounce body. are those bodies from the same source? they look different. really, i'm leaning toward a custom, very new, or no name supplier. nice baits, the colors are right that's for sure. how much were they if i may ask? confused that head is available in a mold, if i remember good, not real sure about the bodies, never seen those.

I paid $6.51 for them, bodies and head, the bodies are the same thing as each other. I would say the rubber is a bit heavier then 2oz maybe like 5-7oz. The rubber is some very heavy duty stuff, way different then the formula x that everyone is using now but still plenty lively (if that makes sense at all).

    • Wow.....6th win of the season and it gets called ugly.......J/K. Getting down to the last few races and we have a pretty good battle going on for the top spot. I know I’m about out of decent picks left but we’ll see what happens. Good luck everybody 
    • Watched a nice 8 or 10 chase a doe back and forth for 45 min on Monday night. He checked her several times but she didn’t want anything to do with him. Few scrapes then showed up that night as well. About an hour north of the cities. 
    • Sorry but $200 seems pretty high for that thing to me. Thousands of less expensive alternatives.
    • Looks like a great project.  A DYI froth pak for $500 or so will do 12 sq ft at 1" thick.  Most home improvement stores carry these.  
    • I got a set of FXR FLoating bibs on clearance from the place in Rush City that goes along with my jacket I bought last year. It is really warm and lite.

    • Last weekend I switched out my ramp door for a bay window.  I'd like to spray foam it, but I'm sure I won't be able to find anyone willing to do it professionally in my area, at least not at a reasonable price.  Last winter I had to drive an hour and a half to get the rest of it spray foamed for about $2000.  One company told me they wouldn't fire up their equipment for less than 1800. For this small of an area I'm thinking I would be just fine with the foam boards @ 2-3/4" thick with the furring.  Otherwise, does anyone know how well those Menards Froth Packs work?  $360 still seems kind of spendy to spray foam that little area myself.  
    • That's awesome. I gave mine a test last night and they weren't bright enough. I might have to order some bright lights from Amazon. 
    • Looking good! I also wanted reverse lights. I used some of the really bright light bars from Amazon on mine.  
    • I would fur it out another inch, then spray foam and finish to the furring strips.  No vapor barrier needed at that point.
