      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 bought a couple different Genz jigs and the Genz worms I think they are glowed well, but the fat boys didn't glow at all or very, very little. They said GLOW on the package... I think there must have been a mistake on those, they didn't glow at all it seemed.

I too agree on the glow paint on the Genz fatboys and Genz worms. Mine seemed to glow the first few times I used them, but now don't seem to glow at all.

Good Luck and Tight Lines!

You don't want to store you genz worms near any of the new "plastics". It must be the oil in the plastics, but something weekens the paint on the Genz Jigs. I now keep my Genz worms in the original box until I use them. That seems to be the best way to get life out of them.

Maybe I can get Jeff Beckwith from Scenic Tackle to repaint the jigs. His paint won't come off with a hammer grin.gif

I have to agree about the Genz Jigs glow paint. I have repainted most of my old jigs. They glow right out of the box but it doesn't last long. I have had to recover most of my old genz worms with a thicker glow paint.

I read years ago that glow paint left out in the light too much will lose its glow ability. I compared a jig left on a rod to one that was stored in the box and it seems to hold true. When not being used, I store my glow lures in a dark tackle box. Also, when buying new ones off the rack, I don't take the pack hanging in front. I go back a couple of packs to some that have been shaded from the store's lights.

I have Phelps Tick Jigs in the same box as my Genz Worms and they don't lose their glow at all.

I have a walleye box full of Glow Devils and not one of them as lost its glow. Some are going on 3 years old.

I have never been happy with the paint on the Genz Worms. I really like the body design but the paint is bad and the hook shanks are to thin. I am sure the diehard panfish guys can relate to that one.

scott, where could i find some glow paint to paint some of my jigs? I have always made my own crappie jigs and painted them with fingernail polish. Anyone want something to do on those long nights that you cant get out to the lake? get a fly-tying kit and stat making your own flies and crappie/sunfish jigs.

I repair mine with the stuff you can buy at Mills or Gander. You heat the jig and dip it in the paint, then bake it a little. I can't remember the name of the paint but I am sure someone will know what it is called. It is not near as good as the paint the good tackle companies use but it is a quick fix.

I would be nice if it was done right from the start. You sure pay enough for the panfish jigs.

    • adding a cheap bass cannon would help for sure. make sure you connect your wires correctly plus to plus from speaker to stereo, usually the copper colored wire or the wire that has a white strip on it is used for the positive, this helps you so you do correctly connect the speaker to the amp or radio. Right to right left out to left. Check balance setting on radio, check treb and bass setting start off at 50% and raise your bass setting while lowering your treb setting. I like a lot of bass so I am usually at 80% bass and 50% treb. Check to make sure you don't have cracked covers on your speaker's. You can also make small speaker boxes to put your speakers in and pack them loosely with insulation to give you more bass and direct your music out the front, if you are a little handy making a box.  Ya I have played around with speakers I have my entire house wired and the last time I counted 19 speakers in my place not counting another 10 for two surround sound systems.
    • Well kind of back to guns, I have been looking to buy a .22 pellet rife for the varmint's around here. a gun but not the kind you guys are talking about  I think.
    • I would not plug it in 24/7 no need. an hour before you need it should be enough, not even cold enough to think about plugging something in when it is above zero out. you just need  a good battery. 2013 it is not even an old truck and the block heater is heating the engine which is not what warms the truck up when you start it anyway
    • I have a 2013 F150 that sits most of the week because I have a company provided car. I would like to keep it plugged in most of the time not because I'm worried about it not starting but because it warms up much quicker. Does anyone have any idea about whether or not keeping the block heater plugged in all the time would damage anything?
    • I'd agree........I'd like those who feel otherwise explain to me why a proview would even come close to a tri beam.
    • Some even think Christianity is to blame for crime in America.......  
    • Could also be the speaker... if you installled just a tweeter, then you aren’t going to get any bass. You want a two or three way speaker to give you the full range.  As mentioned... it could also be the radio setting
    • I think your GVW has to be 3000 lbs or less to get a lifetime license.
    • Assuming you are in MN... You are Going to have to have a weight slip as well.... over 3500# means you need a regular license plate instead of a lifetime. Also need brakes
