      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 .

Topwalker

Recommended Posts

I'm hearing mixed opinions on the topwalkers made by Holcombe/Musky Buster. Some love em, others dislike them....from what I've heard its because they are on the light side.

The question then is has anyone done any modifications to add weight? Maybe pinching a rubber core on the bucktail shaft? I haven't fished them a lot but do like the action and sound from them. Thanks.

I've done mine - the bait casts rather well for it's weight out of the box. You can pinch on if you want, I added some 'bou and bigger hooks to mine, which also increased castability. It probably won't take as much weight as you think if you decide you need to modify it, you might not even need to.

Hiya -

I love 'em but they don't cast all that well off the rack. I just give 'em a haircut. Trim about 1/3 of the hair off and they'll cast a LOT better (I do this to a lot of spinnerbaits and bucktails too...) The marabou TopWalkers cast like a bullet...

Cheers,

Rob Kimm

My favorite top water. Try the Mag Top Walker for a little extra weight to help with casting, bigger profile, better components, and a louder pop.

Normally... when I get my Topwalkers and Magnum Topwalkers, I do the following: change the hooks out to a bigger hook, change out the shaft to .051 shaft, change the split rings, and add shrink tube to the end hook... so that it stays straight parallel with the shaft... this might add a bit of weight... I have no complaints with them otherwise...
