      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 .

Salamo to light

Recommended Posts

I think I could pound some hogs with this bait in the summer, but I feel that it is to light for vertical jigging. Has anyone tried suspending dots or strips on them to ad weight? Any other idea’s to keep them down in the strike zone? Need to stay vertical!!!

The company that put out the suspend strips was Storm I think.. I have some in the tackle box still have know idea where you could get them now tho. Maybe fleet farm or I'd ask at the bigger sports store. Stuff like this that came out a few years ago gets moved over so sometimes are hard to find.
Great idea by the way I will try it out. O ya the pro guy at the boat show said to use really light line. I said 4lb. and he agreed. Hope this helps some.

Thanks for the post I thought people were perhaps boycotting the Salamo. I have some of the dots and strips from when they first came out. Also they have that new weight paste or what ever they call it. I haven’t tried it yet, but I plan on using it this spring.

Hey VexKing-It might be a longshot idea but you may be able to take the bottom treble hook off and put on a bigger one w/ a drilled out barrel sinker on the shank before reattaching the hook w/ a snap ring. It would give you the weight you need but am not sure if it would affect action?

If you have one that you don't mind playing around with you might drill a small hole in it and melt some lead and pour it in there. I have done this with original raps and had success. I bet the salamo would work great, I bet the smallies would really like it too, now that I think about it I might have to give it a try. Be carefull when you drill it not to drill through the wire and you should be ok.

Are you saying that they have a wire running hook to hook just like the Rapala’s? And on to the drill lead idea, where and at what angle do you think would affect the action of the lure the least. I don’t mind altering the lures. I’m going to try the lead on the hook idea ASAP but maybe a combination of both would be the ticket to keep the balance.

Redhooks are you trying to tell me that some actual red hooks wouldn’t hurt? I do change out some of my crank baits to red ones. I don’t see why the Salamo would say no to sporting a set.

Great info, keep it coming!!!

hey Vexking-I am assuming that there is a wire running all the way through but have never taken one apart to find so I really couldn't tell you where the best place to drill is-I know they have some lead in them because there is a warning on the package. Good luck with your experiment and let us know how it goes.

PS I don't think you can ever go wrong using red hooks wink.gif

    • Juice and bear, they are a pair.  Space Aliens and Chiropractic. 
    • We have dish at the lake, and suspend it for 9 months.  Only turn it on in the summer.   5 bucks a month while suspended.  
    • Sometimes you can get a small discount, but buying at a place that also does service might be worth considering....  
    • I've had them most of the summer. The last two weeks I have not seen them.
    • Where's the best place to buy a Honda 2000i generator. I know it's a factory set price for the most part but remembered in the past some local "mom and pops" had them a bit cheaper. Would prefer to give my business to a small business anyway.  I'm in the south metro if that matters at all, but willing to drive.
    • Bear, in real life, i am pretty much the same. Thank you for such an interest in me. Lol. Dave crying but called me a Dick. Typical sugar slave, cannot have a clear perception of reality or life. Good job bud, but that thick skin is hardened fascia from having poor ROM from an inability to move properly over the course of your life.   Roony so bad wants me to give him some attention. Ok little buddy, all you got is Dr roids comments or you got something better to say?  Please give me your opinion of treadmills or be a little ankle bitter some more.
    • saw one gal here today
    • maybe a chick.  we had one here for a couple weeks.   
    • Minn Kota  55 Riptide with foot pedal and hand held remote so when you first connect the battery with out the foot pedal connected or any of the control cables connected, the shaft will begin turning to the right. with foot pedal and wireless remote cables connected the unit stops turning but does not respond to the left or right control. It will go forward. it was purchased used and worked fine in April. In July i went to use it and it acted as I described above. I have read several of the forums but did not see the exact same symptoms. help please. thanks in advance
