      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 .

If you really want some cheap lead, many tire shops have buckets of used lead counterweights they for balancing wheels, you may be able to ask them if they are willing to give them to you or sell them for fairly cheap. The only thing about using them is you would have to pick the steel clamps out of them after they are melted.

Get ahold of me at mswestman@aol.com . I get lead out of old cast iron plumbing joints. Usually get more than I need. Maybe we could work out a swap. Lead for jigs? I will melt it down and get the okum out of it. It might need a little cleaning after that.
I have heard that wheel weight lead does not make the best jigs. It is to hard or something.

mike w,

thanks for the offer but I'm just trying to get started into making my jigs. If I get into soon though I will be giving you an email. I was going to invest in the stuff but the taxidermy just finished two lesser geese and and my deer so gotta spend the money on that for now.

Thanks though,
