      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 .

Who Makes These?

Recommended Posts

Found these jigs in a store near Cohasset MN. I think they are being made in MN or WI. Anyone know who is making these?  Thank you for your help. Sorry for the large picture!20150604_214845.thumb.jpg.7b8b6e193290c0

I'll see them at various bait shops. They are typically sold in little plastic pouches, that are stapled shut. No company logos, slogans, advertisements, or anything. Just an orange price tag sticker.

​Willing to share any of those bait shops?  The place I found them had the jigs in a plastic tray.

Most of the time when I see jigs sold like that they are from Northland.  This look like it?

 

Gill getter by northland...  Northland Fishing Tackle is the name of the company.  They have a web site

the first thing that popped into my head was northland also.

but it still could be a local, small time maker selling jigs they are making.

I suppose they could be northland, but the unmarked pouches have always been cheaper than the northland packaged tackle. Joe's, vado's, blue ribbon, fleet farm, are just a few places I find them.

They are not from Northland or any "big" manuf. I believe it is from a smaller shop.  Kind of taking the place of Jeff Sundin Jigs. Similar in size and shape with better paint. If I remember correctly they are made in one of the following: Red Wing, Rochester or Wi.  Ha.

I wonder why someone would market a product like this without and ID on it.  Fishermen are notorious for wanting to buy the hot lure.  W/O ID it is difficult to do so.  So my cynical mind is wondering if someone is bootlegging seconds, selling something that has some type of defect or what.  A kid selling lemonade on the corner has a better sense of marketing than this outfit.

If one were to be shopping for jigs at Fleet Farm, like I was yesterday, they would find all sorts of jigs in plastic bags where the jigs themselves have no labels.  Jiggs Jigs etc.  

I think the equipment to put a logo on the jig must be expensive, whereas pouring heads and painting requires little in the way of capital equipment.  

I have had good luck buying jigs at a reasonable price on the bay of e.

Packaging is usually just as expensive, and many times more, than product in small tackle.

These look to be jammin jigs maybe?  But there are so many different manufactures(if you call them that)  Like it was mentioned, probably just a mom and pop shop.

I believe those were made by a local guide up in the Grand Rapids area.  It may have been Jeff Sundin but that is just a guess.  If you call Ben's Bait in Grand Rapids Ben will be able to tell you who it was as he told me when I was looking for them last year.  I believe the guide stopped making them a couple of years ago and/or sold them to Northland.  Good Luck!

    • My brother and his friend shot two birds yesterday in Wisconsin in the snow.   I will be leaving for SD next week Wednesday.   Local city birds were out and about with some strutting just before our big snow storm here, haven't seen them since. 
    • MN DNR regulations only say the largest size to use is #4.   So #9 should be legal.   From what I have read on the turkey forums I follow where lots of guys pattern test shells, the TSS loads in #7 do not perform as well as the previously best loads (for 20 gauge) which is Federal Heavyweight #7.  Unfortunately Federal stopped making the HW shells when they switched to TSS.   The few guys who have found TSS in stock in #9 though are reporting very impressive patterns though, far superior to TSS #7.  
    • Enough of the suspsense AS. We need the story!
    • I also missed!  Thinking late may be the key to success.  The early bird gets the worm, but I get the bird:-). I’ll PM... hopefully.
    • I wont get out till Sat morn we shall see how it goes
    • Yikes! I think I see a gobbler track in the mud right before that blood trail starts. Hope everything turned out positive. Looking forward to pics.
    • I thought I would add some pictures. This is a 2013 frame from CW welding I believe. Yours might be a little different if it is from a different frame company. I started by blocking the house up and I removed the tire. The first time I ever did this their was almost no grease on the pivot at all. I bought this frame from a salvage auction after the house burned down. I am not sure if they did not grease it enough the first time or the grease got hot and ran out when the house burned down. This time when I took it off plenty of grease was still on the pivot and I could have got by another year without greasing it.   You can see the bolt you need to remove on the outside of the pivot.  Then cut the zip tie off to pull out the extra wire.  The whole arm will then slide off if you leave slack in the cables. I put a floor jack under the hub to make it easier. Then clean everything up and grease it.
    • Beautiful bird there Wallydog. Congrats
