      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 .

What happened to GULP?

Recommended Posts

It seems to me that last year there was thread after thread about GULP - does it work, what do I do when the juice is gone, etc. This year I can't say that I've seen much on it at all. I am wondering if it has lost it's appeal, isn't the 'hot item' this year, or if everyone has learned all they need to know about it. I've had some but haven't really given it much of a try so I have no opinons or thoughts. It just intrigues me to think that it was so hot 12-24 months ago and now it seems that there's nothing, including a lack of ads for it.

Thoughts?

I still use gulp it has its aplications... I would not throw it away if it dries up, you can always add other types of scents to it, for example, I bought some of the new trigger X spray and I have added that to some of my plastics. I will pull out a couple different types and then put them on a seperate bag and add some trigger X to it and use that, I have had some mixed results but it is something different to try. I think that every year there are new and better things that come out and people will try that but I know there are people that will live and die by using gulp.

ALL-IN

I'm a fan of Gulp. Is it the greatest thing next to the ball point pen or bratwurst? No. Does it have it's place? Sure it does. Just like any other lure or bait, it has it's place.

Bratwursts?? I have heard of sliced bread but never a bratwurst! LOL laugh

ALL-IN

I think bratwurst taste much better smile

I second that!!! However, the GULP commercials say that you can we activate the gulp by dipping it back in the tub of liquid... does that work the same for a Johnsonville??

it's not a big deal cause everyone who has gulp has a 300 count tub I use the leech and minnow against real thing and on a real light bite real thing works better but I keep a razor knife in the boat and I split 2/3 of the gulp in 1/2 causing it to wave and flutter and have triggered even the light bite nice part about gulp is I open the tub and don't have to throw half of the rotten dozen away and I always have some handy to use

I haven't used anything except gulp alive. I did very well using it for saugers this spring. I will be giving the night crawlers a whirl in the fall. I purchased live bait twice in the last year! Its so much easier to have artificial bait that's ready to go any time you are!!

I love the Gulp minnows. Crappies, bass, pike... even walleyes, but my lake is not a walleye haven. I like the 3" minnows in Shad. I actually like the bags of gulp better than alive. They seem tougher and are easier to use out of bags, though I do throw the used ones into the Alive juice if they aren't torn up too bad. Those tubs are worthless and spill and the handles keep coming off...

I bought a scoop of fatheads last weekend, and of course, they died on me... I tried to make sure that I acclimated them to the lake water properly, but my air leaked out and I didn't remove the bag quick enoguh, my own fault. $3 down the tube. My $$ is better spent on Gulp that doesn't die smile

winter ice fishing the Gulp maggots out produce real ones or real waxies about 10 to 1 for me.

I think live minnows work better than gulp. But when I'm up in Canada or on a hot bite somewhere, thats where I think gulp comes into play. Not having to re-bait constantly is a big plus.

Last year I tried a Gulp experiment at a lake in Canada during a hot bite. I used Gulp and my buddy used minnows. The minnows out produced 2 or 3 to 1. I used it head to head again on LOW during a cold front bite and again the minnow won out. I've caught some fish on Gulp and I'm not going to throw it away, but I won't be buying it again.

I've never tried gulp alive, my dad/uncles/grandpa tried it out on a canada trip last year and didn't catch a thing using it.

On top of that, it's so darn expensive!

On a hot bite, I love my Gulp. I agree with others that it is great for Canada or similar situations, but I don't have a lot of confidence using it in pressured lakes for walleyes. I prefer Gulp (or Powerbait) grubs and minnows for pannies to live bait.

    • $37 per year..... Or just find someone to buy you a 3-yr license for $42. Seem kinda goofy consider that stamps are the same price for both in-state and out-of-state  
    • Thanks for the info, I know most of us wheelhouse owners never got a license
    • Not sure why this posted three times and I can't delete any of them...
    • interesting read...
    •   A damper could be placed inline with the supply air duct to either mix outdoor air or recirculated return air, this is air going into the panel.  Modulate that damper with an actuator that is controlled by a simple temp sensor and modulating control, i.e. 0-10v signal.  
    • Had the soup last night and it was really good. The beans weren't too bad - I wouldn't say any mushier than they probably where right out of the can. Pretty similar to the texture of Bush's Baked Beans, so mushy, but I was worried they might be the consistency of refried beans after cooking on low call day in the crockpot. Going to try adding a little liquid smoke next time. That sounds like an interesting twist.
    • Anyone going up on the 8th? Rengel wants another shot at the prestigious Nord Lord title, and me too! And quickfishnoob. Pretty sure there's ice this time.
