      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 .

Jitterbug lip

Recommended Posts

I have the option of an aluminum or stainless steel jitterbug lip for a musky lure I want to make. What are the pros and cons of each? Thanks.

alluminum has the better option of being easier to fine tune the bend to get different actions out of the lure. it's light so that's a pro or a con depending on your view of weight and whether more or less ballast is needed to achieve the lure properties you want.. i.e. ride high, ride low, more bounce less bounce etc. aluminum doesn't hold paint well. never an issue with stainless if preped well. it's heavier than allumunum making your options of ultimate lure action fewer. harder to adjust for different action and needs to be really set in good because less give means it will break the lure, pull screws out that sort of thing. more durable as far as scratching but i've never seen an issue with alluminum breaking unless it's bent different ways alot which causes alluminum to become brittle. the line tie on stainless is far superior to alluminum in strength. personally i'd go with stainless and get a tight grain cedar blank, or basswood mabe. a little more bouyancy to give me more options. theres more but i hope this helps, good luck.
