      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 .

Glass Jigs?

Recommended Posts

I thoought there was a string on these -- but, I couldn't find it?

Just bought another handful, and talked to the manufacture directly -- met him at Angler's Paradise on Hwy 10, dropping off another supply -- these jigs are really something! The glow last forever and the very light weight delivers a very natural presentation. They come in a bunch of colors. Green, yellow, Pink, Red, Purple and Orange in about 4 or 5 sizes.

Can't wait for the weekend!

Yes... there was a post, but it "disappeared". I bought some from Vados in Spring Lake Park. Got home and did an un-scientific test on their glow capabilities. End result?
Versus ALL of my glow stuff (weell, one of each), these jigs blew them away. 1 hour after, there still was a noticeable glow from these things. Red seemed to fade the fastest, green glowed the brightest, and blue glowed the longest. Can't wait to try them out.

Hey fella's. I think the reason the thread gets hosed is because your advertising products that aren't forum sponsors. In all fairness to the people that support this thread, you can't be pointing people in other directions. Talk to this guy and have him help sponsor this site.

Labrat,
All they are called so far are "glass jigs", they are made by a couple of guys and they have been trying to get them into as many bait shops as they can. But at a price of $4.59 not all bait shops are willing to carry them.

I told the guy about this site, I hope he will contact Rick and set-up an add with the site or better yet add his product to the FishingMN store!

Currently I know they have them at Angler's Paradise, Vado's and Capra's.

The hubby was out in search of these jigs today. He bought a few and his brother practically cleaned out Anglers Paradise. They then went to Vados, they had them but were smaller. He then went to a store in St. Francis and found some there (I didn't get the name of the store). The guy at Anglers Paradise told the hubby that they would glow for an hour and a half. I can't wait to try them.

I tried the URL last weekend. They worked pretty good... but not good enough to justify $4.50!! But that was just one time using them... this weekend they will see some action on local lakes.

    • Since we are on the subject.... Has anyone every used the synthetic winch rope on their houses? I have it on my UTV winch for raising and lower the plow and love it.   http://www.amsteelblue.com/1-4-diameter/

    • what da matter wit ya willis???????????? oh i remember da summer camping with da boonsefarm and ripple!!!!!!!!!!!
    • I suppose you assume anyone who drinks any other wine to be a sucker falling for a marketing ploy!
    • That is fine del. A lot of people like Ripple and Boonesfarm wines too.
    • You said... "I'm not going to discuss it" and I agreed you don't need to.    Sucker for the marketing folks.     I drink what I like.   And I don't like paying way too much for whiskey that tastes no better to me.  If you are one of those super taster snobs, more power to you.  
    • I run  5/16 on my new house. My old house had 1/8 form Miltona and lasted  just over a yr. I was out the sec time of the yr and seen one was fraying a little when setting it down on the ice. After I had it on the ice I told my son  we have to change cables when we get home. Fast forward 6 hrs and crank one side up about half ways and go over to the other side and start cranking it up and the cable broke. If my head would have been in the way it would have been bad news. I had enough cable to restring it. And get it up and locked in. I went to the other side and started to crank and that one popped to. I went and got the floor jack out of the back of the pickup and jacked it up and locked it in place. I put 1/4 on when I got home that night.   I take my house in the car wash everytime I come home when its wet it. If you have bad cables change them. For me it every two yrs and thats with 5/16 inch
