      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 .

Snap Weights for Muskie Trolling?

Recommended Posts

I was up in Duluth fishing for Salmon/Lake Trout and the guide was using downriggers and snap weights. The snap weights were 1lb balls with a Duolock snap clipped on to a loop tied into the line. Thinking about that I thought that might work to get some Muskie baits down deep. I was wondering if any of you have tried a snap weight setup, how you rigged it, and what weights did you try. I'm wanting to get down 25-40' and think that the snap weight kits for walleyes (clip on release and 1-3oz weights) would be a bit light for Muskie baits.

You may want to reconsider pullling baits at 25+FOW in the summer. We have been successful at it in the spring but once the water warmed we released a couple that weren't doing so well. Depending on the size of the bait you are pulling and the boyancy the size of the weight with varry greatly. An innexpensive way to use weights is to split ring them to the front of your trolling leader. You may want to get a copy of Muskie Mike's Trolling Secrets which has dive curves for many popular muskie baits. Drifter bought the rights and recently started reprinting. If you like to troll this book is a must have IMHO.
