      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 .

Using 3 ways swivels - Expert advice

Question

I've been tinkering with three ways swivels to try and use them more effectively for slow trolls/drifts. Looking for some feedback from anyone that uses the 3-way a lot (on the water) and has good luck with it using floating lure imitations or crawler/minnow/leech presentations. Anybody got some good methods?

i've had great luck in current with gum drops on them with the current constantly pulling but when I get in a lake it seems like the lure either floats way to much to sinks to much. thats just my opionin (spell check) I would get the more expensive ones if you can its helps alot

I use them a lot at certain times, usually with a stickbait or maybe with a crawler on a spinner rig. I usually have my dropper about half the length (or less) than the line back to the bait. I like to have the weight above the bottom but be able to touch the bottom by dropping back my rod tip - for crawler rigs I might be higher above the bottom because they will drop down unless your're going fast enough to get lift form the blades. I really like fishing them with a casting reel with a flipping switch.

I really don't use them for a "slow drift" with live bait like you're talking about. I suppose you could, but I usually go with a slip sinker rig in that situation.
