      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 .

31 grand for a fishing lure

Recommended Posts

Someone posted this earlier but it was probable dropped because it contained the link to the certain online auction site. This was a legit sale. For those whom didn't see it the lure was an old Heddon wood plug with a blade at the front and a blade at the back which rotated when the lure was cranked in it appeared to have treble hooks mounted on the sides of the lure this lure was far from mint condition just goes to show one mans trash is another's treasure

It's a Heddon Dowagiac Minnow that's circa about 1900 to 1916. I have one that's in great condition and is a "green crackleback" model 150. I know it's worth alot but not 31K!!....T

I too have a couple of lures similar to the one pictured here only green spotted or what ever. My Step-Dad gave me a tackle box of lures that hadn't seen the water in over 40 years and wanted me to see if I could sell them on the garage sale for ten bucks!! I never even knew he had ever wet a line! I was completely shocked to see what was inside that metal box.
He got his ten dollars, but I will be keeping the 40 year old cast-offs until I have a glass case made for them to hang in the den. That little metal tackle box is a treasure chest full of gold as far as I am concerned.
I also got my Dad out in the fish house with me for a few hours this past winter. The fish didn't cooperate until after he left but he told my mom that he might have to get himself one of those four-wheelers. wink.gif Go figure. Just when you thought you knew somebody,huh? I just have to laugh-TROY

T-Pone: the lure in the pic is a little older than yours. i never saw one go for 30 geez but i saw one go for 17geez. yours has gills and the shallow cup hangars. the lure in the pick is a circa 1904-1912 and maybe made by jeanette hawley(heddons daughter). it's a rare color and it may be a floater(without belly wieghts). your lure was made between 1912 and 1916 and it is in great condition.

Thanks Keebo....Nobody I know knows more about antique lures than you do. Hawley? There's a town in Minnesota by that name. Maybe she made it famous huh? 2,200? Still not enough for a good 4 wheeler!.......T

    • What lens you use for the night sky pictures? I really like them.
    • And finally some finished pictures. Rod holders in the back rests of the rear dinette. UV lights in bench for charging glow in the dark jigs. Switches next to the radio control the outdoor speakers and the other controls the exterior strobe lights. I have a strobe controller wired into the trailer lights. I did LED strip lights instead of the traditional individual hole lights.
    • I have been building a fish house and have decided to share it on here sense so many of you (Especially Lip_Ripper) have helped me out so much. I used basically all of the same building techniques Lip_Ripper and a few other guys on this site have used. Stole a few ideas from some of you but hopefully no one gets too worked up over that. I have everything except the bathroom, plumbing, lift bed, and awning done. It is 100% a fish house right now, ready for ice and I can't wait to get it out! Frame- 8X21' +4' V Valley Manufacturing galvanized hydraulic Walls/roof- 1x2" rectangular tubing Siding- Flat black aluminum held on with 3M adhesive tape Roof- 3/8" plywood covered with rubber membrane Floor- 3/4" marine grade plywood Insulation- Closed cell spray foam   One piece aluminum wheel wells.  1/4" cedar tongue and groove. At this point I was still undecided if I was going to stain it or not and sense I did end up staining it I should have just used pine. Looking back on it now it could have saved me a few bucks. The start of staining. I used Sherwin-Williams Pecan.
    • Pine County is full of them!
    • My dad made a return trip to the same area yesterday. He saw 3 birds, but didn’t get any shots off. Pretty encouraging he’s seeing a lot of birds in that area. We’re heading up to Grand Marais on Monday for the week, should be good times!
    • Good thing they’re playing the late game today. Give the weather a chance to clear up. As much I like watching games in the rain, 3 weeks in a row is enough!
    • At least the twins won’t have to worry about Detroit being a threat for years to come. Gardenhire and rebuilding just don’t go together.
    • Final 2 minutes of lastnight’s game was pretty exciting. I agree, it’s going to take several more games for the team to really come together. But winning those types of games will make it happen faster!
    • So late last ice fishing season I was looking at underwater camera's and thought I narrowed it down to either a Marcum VS825SD or the Aqua-Vu HD700i.   Now I see Aqua-vu has a new model out this year the HD7i Pro.   Does any know what the differences are between the HD700i and the HD7i Pro ?    Usually I don't like to buy first year products as I like to see them get all the bugs worked out first.
