      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 .

off brand panfish plastics?

Recommended Posts

I have been searching out different body types of plastics that arent in most stores. I have to say my favorite in store bought plastic is the black finesse plastic from custom jigs and spins. I have tried every other color finesse plastic from custom jig and spin and the only one that comes close to competing with the black color is dark purple. I do fish a lot of clear lakes also and I believe that would effect your brands and colors but this one seems to out produce them every time hands down in lightly stained lakes.

I have found a few retailers online with some interesting looking plastics. Stuff I havent seen that looks anything like plastics siting on the shelves at stores.I am really interested in the waterbug and mega mud bug by b-y baits. The Tomahawk and the Patriot look interesting from Freedom baitz also.

Im sure my searching will come up with more results but for now these four that I listed look like stuff I havent seen before and interest me. Do you have any favorites that arent available in most stores?

I like Little Atom plastics, they are my go to primary ones I use. But I have started to experiment with brands.

Check out J and S Custom Jigs plastics. They are some of the best plastics I've ever used. And the prices are pretty cheap. I highly recommend trying the VersaMite and the GoJo.

thanks for the added info guys. I just ordered some of the Little Atom plastics. Might have to order some of the J and S now also lol. I hardly ever use live bait when panfishing anymore and I am always looking for new styles of plastics.

I found a couple that were interesting on e bay also.
