      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 .

I use the rage tail shad and toad and absolutley love their effectiveness on top water. The only downside is the tail rips fairly easy after just a few fish. Thats a bummer when you take their cost into consideration. I most likely will use the craw texas rigged with heavy bullet sinker to punch through pads of millfoil this coming year though. Heard good things.

Hiya -

I used 'em a little last year. Kind of remind me of a craw Mann's used to make in the 80s that had swimming legs. I did like them on a football head when I used them. I don't t-rig craws much but I bet they'd be great for that too. They did seem fairly durable.

I like Chigger Craws but they do tear up fast. Paca Craws are still probably my favorite, especially since you can stuff an Alka Zeltzer in the hollow body.

cheers,

Rob Kimm

I use them all the time, they have become my go to plastic on jigs. I have used them T-rigged, but my first choice when rigging is the Rodent.

I used em a little out on the st. croix this year. I like the rage claws most of the time, but sometimes it seems the rage's just have too much action

I used them ALOT last year...I really like the Craws for a trailer on a swim jig...I used the Chunks for this too but had way more luck with the larger profile Craw. Bama Craw is my favorite color...they really move some water and look fantastic on the fall.

They worked really well for me this year using them with a punch skirt and a tru tungsten weight. Caught alot of big bass last year punching through the milfoil with this setup. My only problem is that the pike love them and they claws are not very durable. I bet that I spent $150 last year on these alone.

    • The CO that checked us on LOW this winter told us if you go out to the bathroom or a smoke it is OK, if you go next door to visit it is a ticket...
    •   Member of ADVRider. Rode with lots of guys on there. I just put out a feeler on here once in a while.
    • You ever check out www.thumpertalk.com Lots of guys in your area.
    • I think that summer one is in the regs, 75 feet as I recall.   
    • I am no expert either but putting my trust in the builder. Talking to him, there will only be enough lumber to screw the sheetrock to. There will be no 16" on center studwalls. He has done several like this with no problems. The "Gurts" are attached to the poles and you could saw the poles off at the bottom and move the whole building.
    • Like Leech said, it appears that a grant in aid trail is running through your area. I would urge you to contact the club president or another representative and try to work out a solution. They may be able to even re-route the trail to avoid your driveway but you will not know unless you engage in a civil discussion with a representative of the club. Just let them know you have concerns and see if an agreement can be had.    I would be surprised if the club doesn't have a landowners event every fall that you could attend and talk to club members as well to keep reminding them each year of your concerns.
    • Forgot this was a day game, missed it but happy we got the two points. We have been holding our spots and even have some games in hand on some other teams. If we can just keep this pace up we are in, but here is hoping we get hot towards the end of the year. Would be nice for a change. 
    • Nice win this afternoon on the road...things are getting interesting....need others to keep stumbling and we may not have to worry about a Wild Card.
    • That's the problem in restrictor plate races--stay on the gas and hit the car in front or lift and be hit from behind.
    • No doubt!   We didn’t have to wonder if there was actual contact though after Dillon said he had a run and just stayed in the gas.   Is what it is.  And that’s the difference I noticed.
