      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 .

I saw the Saying on the Mister Twister Products that says "Americas Favorite Soft Baits" And I got to thinking... What is everyones favorite brand? Mine Would have to go to Berkely. Ive got more Berkley baits than anything else.

Its a toss up. If we are talking bass and a fat wallet, Yamamoto Baits for sure. If we were a little lower on the boards and in the walleye forum, it would be Berkley Gulp. Panfish, Berkley or Mr. Twister. I also like Zoom and Yum products. I really don't think I could have a favorite, but all around Berkley is probably at the top of the list.

Boy, tough question. I guess it depends on what I want to throw. I throw quite a bit of Mister Twister baits - Comidas, Finese worms, Tubos, RT Slugs. I always use Zoom chunks on the back of a jig. I have about a dozen different brands of ringworms. I still throw a lot of Super-Dos on a jig or Texas rigged. I guess it just depends on my mood and the fish's mood.

Grerat topic. Im in the same boat as Ray with the Mr. Twister. They make such great product, and for the money, its hard to not like them. Comidas, worms, tubes.

Love Yamamoto but usually use knock offs so in real life Zoom, followed by Lake Fork, then Berkley, then Netbait. Reaction Innovations is good too and love Culprit worms. Don't use Mr Twister or Gulp at all.

huh, I haven't been around fishing that long and not that it matters but I thought zoom got knocked off more than most. I thought they had a lot of sort of originals, trick worms, kind of flukes, brush hogs, toads...but maybe not. I think they are about the only company to not copy the senko.

anyways, for me its ZOOM, like the ultra vibe tails, and lots of colors, good shapes and good prices and can find them about anywhere. But also powerbait and gulp! are great too, but they seem to be changing shapes and shuffling styles in and out a lot so I don't use them often. But for rivers and smallies I love Gulp!

Recently got into Lake Fork Magic Shad... They WORK! For the most part I'm not partial to any one specific brand but I typically use Mr.Twister Exude comidas, Berkley 7 inch twister tail worms and 4.5 inch power tubes, Culprit 7.5 inch twister tail worms, Zoom Chuck jig trailers, and Reaction inovations sweet beaver creature baits. I think I'd try just about anything once. Most likely more than once if I find it works under some conditions. It does get to be a bit much though when you have a bag of plastics that your 3 year old son can't lift....

Manns Hardnose anything. Middle to low end on price very durable in my opinion. I use primarily the toads, soft jerkbaits, and tubes.

I have a lil bit of this and a lil bit of that. Berkley, Zoom, Yamamato would be my top choices, but I do have knockoffs and other brands.

    • No I dont, if I had to estimate it I would guess in the 750 range but that is only a guess. 
    • If your interested in some actual old barn tin I can give you a contact. Just shoot me a PM. he's located in Hudson, WI
    • Weekend forcast is predicting 1-3" of snow Thursday night. For sure I will be in a tree Thursday afternoon and Friday Morning...
    • I've only played with them in the store. Guys say your ipad or phone battery gets sucked down fast so if you are able to plug them in they work great. I believe its the same camera as the one used with the LX9 (i have one) and it works great.
    • super awsome, congratulations to your young man.
    • I really like the interior. Planning on doing something similar with the barn tin in mine. Did you just pick some up off hsolist?
    • Hello from the NW Angle!   Water temps are hovering around 48 degrees and fall fishing is phenomenal! Walleyes are biting anywhere from 14 to 30ft with jigging being the most effective method. Crappies are continuing to bite around sunken trees and deep holes with a good amount of perch mixed in. Anglers have had success trolling for large pike and muskies with jigging also bringing some to the boat.    We are getting fish houses ready for the 2017-18 ice fishing season and are very excited for hard water!   We recommending checking availability for winter ASAP!   Sunset Lodge
    • That makes sense, at least it will allow us to run a 4th line vs having to play with 3 lines for an extended time. 
    • Big 10 kind of ruined college hockey for me, I still catch a gophers game now and then but its pretty rare. Barely watch sports in general any more. 
    • Outside speakers dont need to be loud to enjoy them and most dont.  Nice to have music when tending tipups on a slow mid day bite.  And great when camping.  As to the strobe, its becoming a safety concern.  There are more and more idiots driving 40+mph and snowmobiles doing 60+ and crashing on the ice.  I went with just being able to flip on our 10 marker lights but I don't mind anyone wanting to be seen.  We have blackout curtains and a strobe on top of a house will do nothing to hurt the bite.
