      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 .

Millenium Lookalike stand-up jigs & “Bass Candy” Tube Baits.

Recommended Posts


Finding the right stand-up jig has been a challenge so I am always game to test new jigs to see if they hold up to my needs.

This fall I started testing the Millenium Lookalike stand-up jigs and found a very great jig for walleye, pike, and cats. A sturdy wide gap hook and a reliable stand-up jig that offers a quality brush guard all spell out a winner for late fall walleye or bruiser pike and cats up in the shallows on rivers or lakes.

Walleye & pike were not the only fish suitable to target with the Millennium jig, big cats are no match for the heavy duty wide gap quality hook built into the Millennium jigs.

Many jigs are not built nearly heavy enough to handle the crushing jaws of a sumo channel cat or the power of a monster flathead, but the Lookalike handles them easily and effectively. Whether your feeding cats live baits or cut baits this jig puts the bait in their face so a solid hook-up is a guarantee.

I have had excellent luck rigging the jigs with live baits as well as plastics. For those who are not especially comfortable using frogs for bait I recommend trying the Millennium “Bass Candy” Tube Baits as a bait option, they do a great job of imitating a frog when rigged on a stand-up style jig or a conventional tube jig.

Another plastic bait option worth experimenting with is large 5" shad bodies rigged on the Millennium Lookalike jigs they offer both bulk and action that will draw in sumo fish after dark.

All in all, I would say the Millennium jigs and the “Bass Candy” tube baits are winners and well worth a try this fall on you favorite sumo piggy species near you.
