      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

LETS Sponsor Product Showcase - "Jack's Worm" from T.J.'s Tackle

Recommended Posts

I’m very excited about this new plastic bait from T.J.’s Tackle (Case Plastics). “Jack’s Worm” is a salt impregnated bait that has a new profile and a very tantalizing tail action.

This bait is brand new and we need your opinions on how effective this bait is on your waters. We are looking for a few field testers on this product.

The first 5 people from Metro LETS that contact me will get samples of this bait to test out.
All that we ask is that you provide a short report on your results.

Contact me at:

“Jack’s Worm”
This bait is salt injected, so it can be fished weightless similar to a Case Plastics Magic Stik or can be fished with a worm weight (pegged or unpegged), Carolina rig, dropshot, or mojo.

Here are some rigging tips on this new bait:

In addition, this bait can be fished “wacky” style weightless or texas rigged weightless. I like to use a 1/0 circle hook wacky and a 2/0 or 3/0 EWG t-rigged.

This hot bait puts a twist on the standard weightless bait. This is sure to be something that the fish haven’t seen on your water. This bait will be available soon from T.J.’s Tackle. Contact Judy at to order or inquire about retail locations.

Thanks T.J.’s Tackle for supporting the LETS tournament series. Your contributions are much appreciated.

Please help support those that make LETS possible.

We have our five field testers. If you missed on this deal, I'll likely have some extras along at the next event.

Thanks everyone for your interest. The five people that emailed me first will be receiving the samples of "Jack's Worm" shortly. Good luck with the bait, I'm pretty sure you guys will like this one!

Please post your results and comments on this thread once you get a chance to try it out.

Just a note on the name choosen for this worm... "Jack's Worm" was named in honor of Cap'n Jack West who passed away of a stroke recently (during the time the name was being picked for this bait). He was an avid smallmouth fisherman and guide. He will be missed by a huge group of fellow smallmouth anglers along with many others. Jack will be smiling down on you all fishing with this new bait. "Jack's Worm", in honor of Cap'n Jack West.
