      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 .

weights

personally, for as much drop shotting I do.. I CANT STAND drop shot weights. If you get them hung up at all it cuts your line and then your dropper gets shorter and shorter.. argh I find that frustrating. I just use water gremlin bull shot sinkers, they are a crimp on bullet shaped weight. I tie a very small over hand knot in the end of my line and it holds on quite well.

I do use the Castaic Jerky J quite a bit, which is a minnow imitation. But I use the Mr. Twister drop shot worm(4" straight) and the OutKast Naughty Bug(sweet beaver) quite a bit as well.

Hiya -

Bull shot works fine. Personally I use Linker City Skinny Bakudan weights. Don't twist your line much and the clips don't cut your line either. I tried some cheap DS weights last summer - ended up tossing them all in the garbage for exactly the reason Deitz described - any little hang-up and they'd cut your line. Have to look at the line clip - if it comes to a perfect point (a v-shape) rather than a rounded point, they're bad news. The Lunker City ones don't cut line at all - even 6 lb Fluoro.

Really though - anything will work. Bullet weight, split shot, bell sinker...golf balls...rocks... smile

Cheers,

Rob Kimm
