      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 .

Topper Stopper Versus the Whopper Popper!

Recommended Posts

RK speaks very highly of the Mouldy's Topper Stopper and I have decided that I need to add one to my top water collection.On the same note, has anyone here tryed the Lee Lures Whopper Popper? They look really similar and I haven't seen either one in action so I just wanted to know your guys' thoughts.

Man am I ready for June 7th!

I have not tried either bait either, but I know that Dick Pearson also swears by the Topper Stopper. In fact, I believe he named it as one of his top ten "must have" baits.

Hiya -

I have both and use both. They're not as similar as one would think. The Topper Stopper is a little more subtle and just overall a more compact bait. It really is one of the baits I reach for first when it comes to topwaters. Not all of them are created equal - some just sound better than others do for some reason - but they all catch fish. The Whopper Popper sits a little higher in the water and has a little higher pitch to it as a result I think. They are definitely more stable in wind and waves just because they are bulkier.

If I were only going to get one I'd get the Topper, but that's personal bias for sure. Just a very high confidence bait for me. Lee makes some good stuff, and frankly, his baits are more durable for sure.

Cheers,

Rob Kimm
