      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 .

DCG questions

Recommended Posts

I've never thrown a DCG or similar inline spinning musky lure before, but just wanted some verification on design/function/action of the lure as I'm pondering making some custom spinner/bucktails of my own.

My general understanding is that this lure is just an oversized inline spinner, with two blades rotating in the same direction, complete with some kind of skirt(flashabou seems popular), and two treble hooks. If there's something I'm missing please correct me.

Why two blades? Is the action produced by two blades significantly different somehow than just one? Does anyone here fish a similarly designed lure but with one blade?

How important is a stinger treble hook? Do you get a lot of fish short-biting this lure?

With TWO, GIANT spinning blades, do you get tons of line twist? I know that even a swivel ahead of an inline spinner won't completely reduce 100% of the line twist, so how do you handle this issue?

I have noticed that one of the two blades on DCGs and DCG copycats often has a circular reflective sticker on it. Is this just to attract fishermen, or fish?

thats it for now but i'll probably think of some more soon.

Two big blades means more vibration, flash, plus it gets that flashibou skirt pulsing real nice.

It comes with two large trebles no need to add any stinger hooks.

Line twist has not been an issue at all for me and shouldnt be for most considering most use baitcasters and learders(swivels).

The stickers are more of a company label than an attractor I would beleive.
