      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 .

Flipping Jig Review

Recommended Posts

Chris you should just tie your own jigs.....

 

im all seriousness, nice review, the only jig in your group I fish is the AT jig, I like to trim the top skirt and turn it into a "finesse" cut jig, paint is just so so when in rock, but it does stand up nice, which is important to me as I don't "flip" a jig that much rather use a jig in open water and like a jig that stays upright and doesn't roll over.

Great review! Ive used the AT jig and the hack attack. The AT jigs use to be my go to jig and still use it. The only complaint I had with it was that the rattles fall out pretty easily. Not a big deal though

I have used the AT jig (though I don't anymore, really) the Hack Attack (still gets regular use), but the Scott Canterbury Dirty Jigs flippin' jig is my current favorite.

Thanks for the jig review. I use the AT Grassmaster jig more than the AT Rattlin jig. Guess I fish weeds more than rock. Maybe throw in an OutKast or the old Jungle Jig next time just for kicks!

Yeah, they are steeper. Last year Cabelas had a 25% off sale on them so I tried a few RTX's. I did have one where the weed guard fell out. I emailed them and they replaced it no problem. Glad they stand behind them. Now I got an extra head to use for paddle tails!!

My original goal was to keep all the jigs under $5 for this review, then I screwed up when ordering the NuTech and ordered the elite which was $5.50. I also wanted to review flipping jigs and not grass jigs, the RTX will be included in an actual grass jig video. I am also going to do a review of the "smaller" manufacturers like NorthStar and a couple others, I feel they are in a different class then these jigs.

Check out M-Pack jigs Chris. I fished they have a unique weed guard that Mark Pack came up with. Used them down on Fork this year and they come thru timber rather well. Pretty spendy though.

I use the Grassmaster a lot too. Both are quality jigs, I rarely throw any other.
