      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 .

What is a Flu Flu ??

Recommended Posts

I've been talking to some guys and they suggested to get some Flu Flu . I believe they are some sorta of a tube or jig. They are using them fishing for crappies and other small fish.
Since my fishing experience goes back to 3 days ago max. grin.gif I would like if somebody can explain what they are, and where to find them.

A flu Flu is a crappie jig. Usually with a round head, it has feathers attched to the neck to reduce drop speed (Very important for crappies). The jigs can be fished with live bait or by themselves ( I have always used live bait). They come in multiple colors. These jigs are great when you want the slow dropping bait. Any tackle store or gander etc. will have them. If you fish pan fish you should get some

I have a high school budy that swears by them for all species!A few years ago my buddy got out of the service and came home.He went crappie fishing with his dad and caught a 5lb northern on a flu flu tipped with a crappie minnow.To this day,no matter if we are fishing catfish,pike,walleye or panfish,if the fishing is slow he will tie one on.The darndest thing is he usually catches a fish.

Valv,
Open your "owners manual" again. Yup, the manual where the center page folds out. Somewhere in the manual you should see a Flu Flu wink.gif

Thank you everybody, I decided to go to a bait shop and get some, looks like they work very well with crappies.
