      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 .

Painting lures

Recommended Posts

I have a couple of lures I'd like to "paint". Can I just use a black magic marker? It's permanent marker and I think it would hold up well from water. However, I'm concerned the smell might turn away fish-could this be the case? I'll be using it on a couple of muskie lures.

I paint lures. Doesn't sound like you want to go whole hog and buy an airbrush, compressor, inventory of paints and on and on. Go to wallmart and pick up a small can of acrylic paint. Or a can of spray paint and either mask off your work or make stencils. Use a primer on wood. Use white for your first coat. Put a top coat of Clear acrylic (spray can) when your done. Dont worry about the smell it will go away. We could go one forever on painting lures. I little search on the web and you'll find more then you want to know. Cation: Lure making and painting is addicting.

Okay, don't laugh! Have you ever checked out the colors that fingernail polish comes in? I have used nail polish on many lures that I wanted to customize. The stuff comes in so many colors, heck I just saw colored chrome polish in a center aisle display in wal mart. To cover the polish smell I have used fish attractant scents and or cod liver oil. You can make a thick scent to add to your lures by heating cod liver oil and vasoline. Melt the vasoline and add about 1 part CLO to 8 parts vasoline(just experiment 'til you find out the best mixture.
God lyk?
