      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 .

Sweet Beaver

Recommended Posts

What's with this new stuff called "Sweet Beaver". Anyone ever have any experience with Sweet Beaver? I decided to get some today, and some "Smallie Beaver" just in case the Sweet Beaver is too big. They also have a Double Wide Beaver for those who prefer the larger size.

Apparently this is the hottest craze on tour. Let me know if it's worth the money.

These are lures from Reaction Innovations. Touring pro Andre Moore owns this compnay. There have been many good reviews about this lure called the "sweet beaver" and a smaller version called the "smallie beaver". They say its been the hot lure on the tour and very popular in tournaments down south. If i can find some in the stores I'm going to get some, so I would say, sure go ahead and try them, you never know they might be your next favorite lure.

I saw the story on Basscenter about the Sweet Beaver. Made me want to get some. grin.gif According to their HSOforum, there are only 2 dealers in the area, one was up in Blaine. I went there and they only had 2 Sweet Beavers left, but a few Smallie Beavers and Double Wide Beavers. I suppose whenever a big show like Basscenter runs a story about a product where they say 90% of the pros are using it, there tends to be a sellout real fast.

Leave it to Beaver,

This bait could be the next senko. I know, them are tall words, I said could. I fished a private Lake last week that fishes like 'Tonka (same kink of grass) and I used 2 different colors (natural, brn/grn and watermelon/junebug) weightless like a senko. I caught 20 fish in 4 hours. The trick is using a 5/0 super wide gap hook. I did not use the smallie beaver, just the mid-size original Beev. I am sure that you can order on-line. If you run into snags I could get you a few tackle shops here in California that have all the colors. You would have to get permission on the forum 1st, I think.

EBass, your thinking in the right direction, every product they market is based on that "lingo", Andre Moore said in his interview, that every product on the market that we buy today is based on 5ex, because that is what sells, it's working for him, he said they are selling $200.000.00 worth of product a month, not a bad income for some plastic baits!

Gotta echo Wormburner's sentiment....some things never change. 30 years ago my buddy told me "Sex sells, and more sex sells more".

Just saw a segment on this lure on OLN, think the show was called "fishing university" and it had the founder on it. They were using the smallie beaver on a drop shot rig or traditional on a big jig head and were really doing well with it. Looks like a tube with a trough, which makes hooking it better apparently, also looks like the skirt has more detail and bigger "tails" on it. The rings around the bait are also supposed to help keep the fish on better, but I'm not sure of that. I'm definitely willing to try it, any excuse to buy more tackle is a good one!

I saw that same clip on OLN. Could someone send me a HSOforum address to where I can get my hand on some of these sweet beavers where they are not backordered? My email address is butchy_12@yahoo.com Thanks!!!

It looks like the Manufacturer is out of stock in most colors. frown.gif

But I heard they were making a new lure that was a combination of a hair jig and a sweet beaver. I wonder what it will be called?

I am not sure about that model, but the new one I heard about was a combination sweet beaver and quick strike rig which I would not doubt is gonna be marketed under the name "Snappin' Beaver".

Hey,

I saw a post on another board that has SB knock off's ...

Add three w's before whiteysplastics and .com after. Then go to their catalog and look at the sweet lilly's. It might be that they're not out of stock. I have not tried these but some people on another board recommended them.

Question on those Beavers. I have noticed that in the images sometimes the back paddle is closed and sometimes it is split open. Which way do you fish 'em??

HawgTide, I think its to be called the Sweet Hairy Beaver... cool.gif

As to the original post, I have plenty of experience with the sweetest of Beavs... If you need tips let me know!! grin.gif

I know of some men who do prefer the bouble wide beaver, but its not for me...

Man, I just checked out Reaction Innovation's HSOforum, and pretty much all of their products have certain "connotations." Funny, but kind of pathetic using sex to sell fishing lures.

After that note.... They look like an interesting lure, but I think I'll wait until this rush cools off. If you order them now, you won't get them till late may at best, and they don't have most of the colors.

No kidding. With all the hype... everyone is going to want a sweet beaver dangling at the end of their rod this summer!

At the very least, the Reaction Innovations webpage has got to be taking a lot of hits.

I ordered some in the original beaver in "Hematoma" color from Tacklewarehouse.com Theyre on backorder. Seems like a hot bait though. Some people prefer to split the tail for a better action. I think I remember them having a color called "dirty sanchez". Now THATS funny. smile.gif

Yep, they did have a Dirty Sanchez color. I forgot the names of the colors I bought.

I'm gonna give them a shot tomorrow. Hope they work miracles!

    • If you weren't going nuts in your man cave or where ever, like all those folks on YouTube, are you really a fan?   My hound was barking like a mad dog to get back in the house because the Mrs and I were screaming bloody murder.   Is this the year? I sure hope so for my 85 year old Dad, who brought me to my first ever NFL game.........the Ahmad Rashad hail Mary catch against the Browns. Which taught me it's never over till it's over.        
    • Looking good PF!!  My daughter came home with a trouble maker last weekend,  cute little poop ( golden retriever) but a handful,  ya that rug doesn't belong there..
    • Yup.....those are the ones I use also. Work  just fine. 1 con.....the rolls are 50 ft. long and don't fit into a machine with bag storage, so you have to cut them by hand. But the price is excellent.
    • Great Saturday to build some pork loin jerky. Got round 1 in the smoker round 2 still in the bucket. 
    • At the KMart at Nicollet and Lake in Minneapolis, there is a flock of pigeons that numbers several hundreds. Last Thursday going home from the Super Market I saw a large hawk make a strike at one, but missed.  This was a pretty dark bird overall and much bigger than a Coopers or a Sharpshin and heavy bodied not at all slender.  The attack was a straight line shot from a street light roost on a bird sitting on the shorter parking lot light post.  It seems to me that the attack was launched from a perch about a block away.  The target flew off and there was no chase, the attacker just returned to its previous roost.  I could not get over into the turn lane and go into the parking lot to get a closer look.  The main flock of pigeons didn't actually seem to notice, and there were even some stragglers. Is it possible that goshawks are starting to come into the city in the winter?  From a goshawk I would have expected a chase.  There are certainly plenty of pigeons, and the local falcons have gone south...  I know they are supposed to avoid human concentrations, but then so are loons and they are now common city residents and rest here when passing through in the spring.  We are getting all kinds of wild life in the Cities these days and not all of it goes around just on two legs.
    • I'm soon to be 40, still have never had a REAL super bowl party!   I will sit and hope.   Besides, at 7:11 last Sunday I pulled something in my neck/shoulder.  Might be a hole in my sister and brother in laws garage ceiling.
    • Lol. Dad and I were talking about this after the game last weekend after I had to tell him over and over that I have not been alive when the vikes have ever played a Super Bowl. You old timers can believe in what you want, but us Gen-X kids are saying SKOL!
    •   I'm sure if I had the time I could have spent 10 more minutes and made a nice one out of Oak or Cherry wood! Or found a blue Genz box on C/list and been done with it!
