      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 .

Rinc -

Nice work. I bought my first Weagle in the Stink Pickle color just Friday so I'm anxious to get it beat up a bit.

Whats a weagle?

Walk the Dog topwater bait, made by Musky Mojo - similar to a Jackpot although larger, heavier, and sits down in the water more.

Or get yourself a viper. Same type lure, made of plastic, more durable IMO.

Go for the big one, they smaller one has been on the market for several years, only the last couple has the big one been out.

I have had decent luck on it as have a couple of my buddies.

aren't the vipers wood? like the phantoms? or is it the newer ones that are plastic?

all the phantoms and vipers I have are all probably 2004-2005 and ealier, and thought they are all wood.

All of the Phantoms and Vipers are now being made of plastic. The older models (maybe 2+ years?) are made of wood.

Do any of you guys have the Weagle with the squirly tail? I saw them at the expo but unfortunately all the spare cash was gone before I got to their booth... I'm going to try to find one now.

You can also look at the Homewrecker. Same type as the Weagle, same size. Some guys don't like them, but I really like mine so far. Haven't caught anything on it, but hopefully soon.

Aaron, that is correct. They made some pretty slick ones where you could add/take weight off to get the desired depth. They were much smaller models though.

I am a believer in the viper. High quality, great action.

Box- I have the 8" halloween Wild Action-WA (squirrely tail) weagle and 10" frog WA weagles and they are decent, but I prefer the standard Weagles over em.

You can find the 8" WA weagles at Reeds, they had good numbers in stock with varies of colors that they have in standard weagles.

I like weagle, only when I m fishin in quack's boat. In my boat it kept divin acting like gilders. Maybe I need to shorten my rod or get used to reel in side to side.

Softer pulls and more slack, IME. I've got an 8 footer for my WTD and gliders and have no problem working either size/style of weagle. And also try slowing down a little.

My boat deck r lower. I had 7' which I used for other wtd it work fine, when I m fishin on higher deck I used 7'6" n love it with weagle.

Jredig

what's the speed on your troll motor when u work the weagle slow? I m not really a "slow working" guy like to work them fast. Otherwise I m open to changing my style if its increase my chance of hookin one up on topwater as I haven't hook one up on an topwater yet.

Well, my boat isn't high from the water at all, I run my TM on 4-5 for working in calm/light wind conditions. FWIW, I prefer to not use a snap on jerk/wtd baits and just run a straight split ring.

There's definitely more than 1 way to work them though, between marching/bouncing them in with force or just gently walking them back and forth.

You fish enough, snaps break. I just really like the fact that there's no way for it to open up and there's pressure being distributed over more surface, not focused on one spot.

Nice fish Rinc!

The Weagle is my money bait come early or late day, and mid-day when the conditions fit. It simply rides lower, meaning it's less apt to "blow-up" on a hit, and it moves a ton of water.

Top-side I'll use Pacemakers, Weagles, and some smaller ones like the Mouldy's, and a few like the LOW rider in rough water, that's it. They're that good in my opinion.
