      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 .

Rust goes into a surface first, then bubbles out. If the rust is in the jig eyes, then even if you remove the rust, the pits are still there and could cut your line.

I have soem rusty hooks & such, and if it's non-critical locations I use a dremel with a wire brush, then a light shot of trumpet oil or hair-clipper oil.

Replace the hooks on the crank baits. I chucked a few lures this spring. It just made more room for the new stuff.

Save the little packets that you get when you buy electronics ect.ect. They are there to stop the oxygen/moisture from wrecking stuff.

There is a company that makes a product just for it tho. Go to a search engine and type in Inhibitor. They have a web site. I plan on ordering some soon but keep forgeting. Thanks for the reminder! Its cheap insurance if you ask me when you think of what it would cost to replace every thing. Plus it only costs a few bucks.
