      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 .

Rigging Plastics?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, just wondering how you rig some of the bigger plastics? I know jigs are the most common, but a lot of the super senkos and worms I have don't need the extra weight. Does anyone texas rig em? What hooks do you use? Any other options? I was thinking rigging them up like a Killer Eel, with two single hooks, 7 or 8/0s. Any other ideas?

Hiya -

Lunker City, the company that makes Slug-gos, also makes an 8/0 offset worm hook that's perfect for Texas-rigging big plastics. Might have to get them from their HSOforum, but a pack of 5 is about $4.50 or so. They also make 7/0, 9/0 and 10/0 weighted straight-shank hooks which work pretty well too.

I bet with big swimbaits being so popular with bass guys these days you could also find some hooks there that would work - 6/0 or 7/0 Falcon swimbait hooks, or the big Diachiis.

Personally, I use a single hook with big plastic baits like lizards, etc. Fish either head hunt them, or eat the whole thing....
