      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 .

Angel Eyes vs. Glow Devils

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I'm getting some new tackle for the season and plan to try the much discussed AE or Glow Devils. Can these be purchased individually anywhere? If not I will probably order one or the other as tackle is expensive. If I opt for the AE Jr, can I target more species(crappie/pannies)? I know I should probably purchase both for the right conditions, I'm just curious what you guys feel is the better of the two.

Tight lines

Brian

That's a great bait for perch and walleyes on Winnie too .... and don't go to LOTW without one either.

I use Angel Eyes more than Jrs and Glow Devils.

Angel Eye Jrs tipped with a minnow head or loaded up with waxies is tough to beat.

Last year, Fleet Farm was selling them individually.

Thanks guys.

It sounds like everyone has their own opinion, but the consensus is that these lures work. I seldom fish the states largest lakes in the winter so the AE Jr. will probably be my best bet. Am I better off purchasing a pack of 12 or do you guys tend to stick with a specific color? I don’t want to purchase a pack of 12 just to primarily use 1 or 2 of the colors.

Angel Eye Jr is a good lure when the fish are a bit finicky where the Go Devils doesnt have as much action so you have to put the action into it yourself. Both will catch you fish but if I had little money to spend on them I would go Angel Eye Jr 1st. Hammered Gold/red, Glow Red, Pink/glow, green/glow and orange/chart would be the 1st I got. Always by 2 of each color when you can. It sucks losing your hot bait to a pike and not having another with you.

Exactly Northlander. Thats why I suggested the card of 12 with 6 different colors with 2 of each.

There are times when one color is hot and you need to share with a friend or the wife. Can't have too many when the fish are biting cause all it takes is a bite off from a Northern or 2 and you will have none. I have all the colors that Northlander mention and they have worked on every lake that I have tried them in.The AE have become one of my goto lures. The gold and reds/pink on LOTW and the greens and orange/perch on winni.

Agreed Northlander! Nothing worse than loosing the hot lure. For me I usually have one rod rigged with an angel eye, one with a buckshot, one with a forage minnow, and last one rigged up with a sweedish pimple. I find that the angel eye's are much lighter, than any of the other 3 I just listed, so keep in mind with that if your fishing over 20 feet, but they are my go to lure early ice for walleyes. Plus Angel eye's are produced for a much lower cost from JB Lures than a buck shot or forage minnow from Northland. Never used the Go Devils to much, mainly for perch but they do work for walleye but I am more confident with the angel eyes, pimples, buckshots, forage minnows, just a personal preference I guess. Buy both and test them out thats my advice.

    •  Indeed I am pretty confident I will get one this weekend I am able to hunt fri to monday morning  
    • Yes the trout was biting also, we both brought home 5      
    • After hunting Archery only for the last 10 years their is nothing I would change. It is darn frustrating but that is what makes it so fun. 
    • Hope your trout fishing was as good as your turkey hunting. Beautiful morning, beautiful bird. Congrats.
    • I wouldn't count on open water for the opener just yet. As of Friday, there was  a good 24" of solid ice yet to melt.
    •   Took a page out of sniper’s book! Had I known what would go down after I woulda let this guy walk though... I’ll get a story up later. 21.6 pounds, 9 inch beard, 3/4 inch spurs.
    •   That was quick!
    •   Ha, that's easy. Move to Florida!
    • It would be interesting to know what that bill will be if you don’t mind sharing.   I bought a used Ice Cabin several years ago and had the same issue.  The previous owner didn’t do the grease maintenance according to specs.  Once those things get behind it’s tough to correct.   I went through the whole heat it up/wiggle/pound/swear the things off both sides then did what your welding shop did.  Worked real nice after that.  Took a couple half days to complete though and thankfully I have the tools to do it.  I can’t tell you how long it will last though since I sold it not long after fixing it.     I did stress the importance of keeping up that grease to the new owner!   Glad you got yours taken care of.
    • I just run to my dealer and buy the Suzuki stuff. It's a little more pricey but I don't sweat the extra $5-$10 per year. It cost me $50 for 4L of oil and the filter. I did the lower unit in the fall so I don't remember the gear oil cost.   Mine is a 2009 DF90, so pretty similar. Make sure that when you grease all of the zerks to look in your manual. There is one that you won't see until you tilt your motor all the way up. There is also one below the shift linkage that you can't reach unless you take off the lower skirts on both sides. There's about 10-12 screws holding the skirt on both sides.   Also, be VERY careful when putting the skirt back on. I just did mine again last night and accidentally pinched an air hose near the bottom of the skirts. It cut the hose in half when I put the last screw in place!
