      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 .

rick, one picture shows white, blue, red, orange, green, and yellow. but when you click to show a larger picture, they all show the same colors of red, yellow/green, orange, yellow, pink, and white. Do you get blue too or not? Or is it just a hit or miss on what you get. Don't get me wrong, I think it's a good deal either way and I will probably order, but I was just curious.
Thanks,
John

With all the rocks on the Big V a great
paint job can get ruined in a hurry, I
really like the chip resistant paint.

I just gotta have them!! smile.gif

Big Fish,

The jigs shown in the big kits are the same colors used to make up the 25/pk kits. Some people did not want the full 200 pcs. because they did not use all the sizes in that kit so we made them smaller. Not often but once in a while we will substitute one color for another but the standard assortment contains: Chartuse, chart./Orange, chart./Lime, glow, glow/Pink, and orange jigs.

Scenic Tackle Jigs are excellent jigs. The paint on them is unbelievable. I am going on my Fourth year using Scenic Tackle Jigs and I have yet to knock the paint off one.

Jeff's kits come with lots of different colors and color combo's. I really like the fact that a lot of the jigs contain multiple colors as well as glows. You will not be dissapointed with these jigs!

I would tell you what the hot color has been but I have another tournament this weekend. I will post a detailed report after the tournament.

Crappie Killer,
Short Shank Jigs are great for casting in shallower water. Usually in 10 feet or less is where they really shine. They work very well in the early season when you have post spawn walleyes on the shallow gravel.

Short Shank Jigs are more compact with a wider gap which allows for less short strikes.

If you don't have them in your arsenal, you really should think about getting some.

I was just wondering, are the big jig kits still available?

I went to order some, but all I see are the premium jigs. I don't see the short shank ones on there at all. I refreshed the page too, no dice. I guess I will just phone my order in.
I called but just got an answering machine, so I left a message.

Get a hold of me, how are them muskie lures developing out? Do you have any of those jigs with the stinger hook attachment on back of the head?

Big Fish,

The 1/8th oz Scenic Walleye Jig has a #1 hook and the 1/16th oz has a #4 hook. The 1/16th is a bit larger hook then most so that you can put a jumbo leech or minnow on and still have some hook setting gap. All hooks are VMC hooks and sharp.

Ok - just a few questions. Do you plan to have a jig kit with a mix of regular and short shank jigs?
I was planning on buying a kit here soon. But I see there is only 1 kit now - maybe I was mistaken, but was there a seperate panfish and walleye kit before?

Hi Clueless,
the panfish and river jig kits were discontinued for now because of lack of interest.

We do not intend to make a Kit with Short Shank hooks mixed in with the Premium Jigs at this time.

However, we are considering making a 100 or 200 pc Short Shank Jig Kit. Depends on how many are interested?

Click here for more info or to get yours before open water season.

Long shank only at this time. We may offer a short shank jig kit if the demand for one is there.

Sounds good to me. The short shank is hard to cum by for me. I got the 1/4 and 1/8 in short and got the 200pc. kit.

End of my jig worry's for the year. They have all the most produtive colors. A big thing is the price is right and I could do something to support the site. Think about it. If you use jigs any way why not! My son just got his first tackle box and he is waiting by the door for these jigs. ( he is 6yrs.) Happy to see its rubbin off.

    •     I guess when I made that statement I was wrongly assuming it would be much colder than that. In that case, it should be a nice October game just like a couple years ago at TCF. 
    • I went back the next day hoping the slush froze.  No such luck i guess water wont freeze at 31 below zero.  Sunday i tried moving my fishouse.  I kept breaking threw the slush. We hooked 3 widetracks together to my fishouse and still had to jerk the heck out of it to get it out. I did get a few crappies Saturday afternoon.  We picked up 26 crappies. 
    • Finally made it to morson over the weekend.  Fishing didn't go as planned it was extremely cold on Saturday. Ended up with a epic stuck Saturday morning it was 31 below zero when i found some major water . I was pulling my alumalite fishouse on the way to go crappie fishing  I had to jack fishouse out of the water and set it on blocks. I then packed the slush down with my widetrak  i even used my trail groomer to pack it down. I let it sit tell Sunday afternoon to freeze down.

    •     Ice fishing in Wisconsin can be a challenge at times. Catching walleyes is not always an easy task either. We had some crazy weather leading up to this weekend, it was -20 degrees for a solid week and a half, followed by 2-3 days of mid 30s and pushing 40 plus some rain, then we went right back down to -20 degrees.   This made for a challenge fishing tip ups this morning. I’ve got some new hole covers for my Finicky Foolers, which do work great as I’ve used them before, but unfortunately with no snow cover I made the mistake of not setting them right away and forming slush to the cover. Lesson learned. I did get a bit lucky catching that walleye as I thought it would have dropped the minnow with the line being froze.   The first fish I caught was definitely a surprise, a species I have never caught through the ice before, although I have heard they are fairly common to catch out on this lake. Still was hoping it was a giant walleye, but fun nonetheless!   With the cold we weren’t really planning on moving much. We would mark fish every 10 minutes or so but many of them were tight lipped. We did manage a couple more fish jigging, which were some good sized crappie and perch!   Overall I did end up accomplishing the goal of catching a slot walleye out here, so can’t complain.   I will be out on Petenwell Lake more times this winter!
    • Drilled the holes first then set the sleeves down seemed to work a lot better...just have to make sure you mark your holes lol
    • A nice bite continues with anglers catching all sizes of walleyes and saugers.  Most of the action on the south shore is in 24-30' of water.  Daytime bite continues thanks to stained waters of LOW.  There has been a good morning evening bite in 15-17' as well.  Resorts and outfitters keeping ice roads in good shape. One two punch of jigging line and dead stick (hook/jig with live minnow under bobber) effective as is the use of electronics to mark fish. Jigging spoons in gold, glow, glow red and pink uv.  Small rippin raps also good. If not fishing in a resort fish house, auger extension could be necessary in spots where ice is layered.  Snowmobilers stay on marked trail, big ice chunks off of trail.   Rainy River pushing out some nice walleyes with an occasional sturgeon through the ice.  Fish houses along the snowmobile trail from Wheeler's Point to Baudette Bay.  Morning, evening bite most effective.     The NW Angle also has good ice conditions where resorts have ice roads / trails and fishing has remained great. Ice road goes to Flag and Oak Island from Young's Bay. Good walleyes in 22-28' with saugers and perch in water deeper than 26'. Combo of jigging spoons and dead sticks with a jig and minnow effective.  Resorts are guiding anglers to slab crappies on the Ontario side of lake. Preserve the resource, catch your crappies, move on to walleyes or another species as mortality rate is high for released crappies in 25' or deeper.  Snowmobile trails on and around the lake are marked and groomed.  
    • I believe I picked that one up at Red Rock Wilderness Store.  It’s located east of Ely on the Fernberg.   Good thing is he does have an on line store too.
