      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 .

mojo extension pole

Recommended Posts

I used conduit.

A buddy used rebar and made a fork on the end that goes into the ground, then just shoves the original pc of tubing over the other end of the rebar.

I used those steel green stakes with the steps on the bottom to make it easier to push into the ground...then on top i used a gardner duck whistler that i had broke and attatched it to the top of the pole...it just so happens that those whistles fit perfictly into the hole on the bottom of the duck....and yes i know i rigged the heck out of that thing, but it gets the job done!!!!!

just go to the local hardware store and get a peice of 3/4 inch conduit they come in 10ft lengths i think? but its like 10 bucks for that much and you can make it as long as your want. then just paint it simple as that and you dont have to fork over 60 bucks basically the same thing....

I was at Game Fair this past weekend and looked at those extensions, which look very flimsy. I hunt mostly out of a blinded boat. the bottom is very mucky also. The actual extension looks like it would not provide any stability. I will be making my own extension pole for my mojo.

Been using the gray plastic conduit(3/4")we hunt alot of mucky nasty bottomed stuff and the plastic pole won't wreck a lower unit If you cant pull It out.

I picked up a 10 ft section of 3/4 inch metal conduit and lightly hammered one of the ends so that the baby mojo post on the bottom fit better into it. I threw on my waders and went to a small lake near my house and set it up. That works perfect. I thought there would be some wobble in the conduit, but it was perfectly still. I highly recommend this $4.00 idea to an extension pole for the baby mojo. I hunt out of a boat and it is mucky on the bottom of the lakes I hunt.

I have a couple different lengths of conduit pipes I take with as water depths may vary depending on the spot. I bought a rubber mallet to pound the pipes in (a lot easier than trying to push them in). Just remember that the decoy makes the setup top-heavy (especially on windy days) and you may need extra length to bury the pole deep in the bottom to keep it from tilting especially with that soft mucky bottom thats in so many ducky spots.

    • Been there done that . I have 2 CGI s and 1 Wright Mcgill Tony Roach ( Eagle Claw) . When I set them up outside the wind would spool the line off and of course get snagged in the nut holding the spool in place. I made a brass rod about 3 in with a loop on the end and fastened to the reel. I run the line through the loop. It helps quite a bit. The drag is another matter.
    • third season coming up for my #8's.  Once in a great while I might wrap on the button but very rare. My pointer finger keeps the line in place. Free spool??  I aint got time for that, LOL. 
    • Taking tomorrow off...  We will see what happens as this front pushes in.  Hopefully it gets something on its feet.
    • Just wondering what people use for portable chairs. Bucket, fold up, tripod, etc. Been looking at some nice fold up chairs with a padded swivel seat. But they are 11 pounds each. I want to stay as light as possible. I also have a tripod chair but don't really like a post riding up my crotch. 
    • I like my Eagle Claw. My only gripe is that because there is no hole for the line to go through it will come over the OD of the main spool and get wrapped around the release button. Then I end up having to loosen the button until it comes off. The line will then be free and then have to put the button back on and re-tighten it. I like the composit material because it is not cold to the touch when using bare hands. I also use my finger as a drag to control the free spooling. Sometimes it will spin too fast let out too much line.
    • that's part of the reason I didn't jump on this one cause I thought you yanking a chain or two...
    • There's a few good videos on the tube for ideas.        
    • You sound like a BBQ fence sitter to me....
    • Buddy and I each have a Bearcat and we're looking to ditch the handhelds and mount a GPS/Depthfinder unit behind the windshield.  Anyone have any tips?  What units did you use? (seems like Helix's are common) I'd also like to mount a lightbar somewhere on the front for improved lighting.  My auger cradle up front blocks the headlight somewhat and it sure would be nice to have a really bright light up front at night.  I was thinking maybe mount it somewhere on the cradle (it's steel and then I'm not ruining my sled hood) and then have a quick disconnect somewhere on the wiring in case I want to ride without the auger/cradle on. Pictures + ideas appreciated!
    •  It's been many years since I've shot my black powder gun and is very clean  but I'm thinking I'd like to take it out this year and deer hunt. I used to shoot a ball  and would probably like to do that  for hunting  It's been so long so I'm a little bit rusty. I used to get black powder in Superior Wisconsin  but the store that I used to get it at no longer carries it.  Does anybody know any place within driving distance to  get black powder or could I order it through the mail?  Before I take it out and shoot it I need to have the accessories to clean it.  Many years ago when I used to shoot it a lot, are used to have a tube that would connect to the nipple or I would take the nipple off and reconnect another one and draw water through that to clean it.  Can you believe I've forgotten how this procedure is done?   Thanks to all that reply
