      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.
