      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 .

Mojo Howie??

Recommended Posts

So I was really pumped to throw my new Howie the other day and when i did all it did was roll. Is there anyway to tune these lures or am i retrieving it wrong?

What type of leader were you using? If it was one with a ball bearing on one end, that may have caused the problem. Make sure you are using proper leaders for those style baits.

Leader should not have anything to do with it.

If it is rolling, you are likely retrieving it too fast. This bait is designed to be reeled very slowly.

As for tuning, make sure the angle of the lip is pretty steep...like a Hawg Wobbler.

Besides that, I can't think of any other reason that it may roll.

If you try this and still have troubles you can always send it to me, and I will tune it for you...or replace it if I cant get it going.

A friend of mine has a Wabul that does the same thing. I tried mine side by side with his and on a couple different rods, while I could get it to roll less than him it would still roll. Mine works great, now to get something to put some teeth marks in it.

A Wabull that rolls?

Not sure what you mean by this...

They are designed to have some belly roll on the glide.

Are you talking about a Howie as well? Or do you have a Wabull that rolls more than you think it should?

Luke,

Next time I'm out i'll try to slow it way down and see how it works. I might have just been working it to fast. First thing I threw for the season so my blood was probably just pumping to much and was just reeling to fast. I'll let you know how it turns out and hopefully show you a pic of the results :-)

If he doesn't want the Wabull that rolls, I'll take, the roll is awesome and I would much rather have one that doesn't look like everyone else's.

I have a Cady Wabull, and that one runs different then most I have seen, wouldn't trade it for the world.

I have yet to get out this year but definitely looking forward to seeing what that Thumper looks like.

Sounds good. Just get a hold of me if you have any more trouble with it.

Like I said, make sure that lip is at a very steep angle (basically 90 degrees to the body). That way the lip will move the most water, and at the right speed it should not roll at all.

    • I live in central MN but northern MN is still home. Winter is my favorite season. It was always tradition back in the day just before Thanksgiving to deer hunt Sunday ice fish Monday. We are well before that this year up there. They have been driving sleds from Baudette to Waskish I'm hoping it only gets better
    • Lol, yea don't think so.
    • Far from traditional, but either way, believe me, not complaining one bit. I'll take more comfortable days on the ice, in the woods, and looks like another day in the the boat tomorrow over extreme cold and deep snows of yesteryear. Having a lot of hobbies help bide time between waiting for good ice, and the warm up of spring.
    • I tend to agree. Although for the first 20 years or so of butchering with the old timer in our group that had his own equipment, his meat bandsaw,which was probably from the 50's I believe had basically cast iron parts and a regular steel blade.  After use everything was washed and wiped with a food grade mineral oil. 
    • Even if it's boiled in a vacuum sealed bag?
    • That was a complete embarrassment! There’s no way they can justify starting Croft next week! He is terrible!
    • I will decide if that is true when I get my nills back out. hopefully soon. 
    • Would you be able to post pics of your bed again?  I really like that idea, very smart.  Would you make any changes on the next one.  Should get my firebrand shell this week, lots to do.
    • Beaver Bay sports rents although I've never used them. 
    • There's really no wrong way of doing a roast if ya ask me, it's all personal preference. Crockpot,  roaster, oven or boiled (del) . Although I do enjoy throwing cold smoke this time of year at a roast before it hits the roaster!!
