      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 .

New Shad rap

Recommended Posts

I was in Gander yesterday and picked up a #5 shadrap it was called walleye? I had never seen that color patteren before, is it a new one? Anybody have any experience with it? Also does anybody know where I can get some quality glow paint(I have not been impressed with Ganders paint)? An interesting article in Infisherman talked about small dabs of glow on the eyes off some crankbaits for night fishing? Anybody ever try this, does it work? Seems like it would be a good attractor on dark nights?

Lots of game playing. Some of my favorite Rapalas and Shad Raps are not now in production, while other new ones hit the shelves often. I realize companies need to make marketing moves to enhance the ol' bottom line, but it annoys me when they create an artificial scarcity only to later "re-issue" a proven color pattern at a higher price. For now I'm restricting my Rapala purchases to bargain bins in discount stores.

I picked up a #7 shallow diver in walleye at Gander a little over a month ago. I've caught a few walleyes on it(Although Baby Bass has been the hot color for me the past two months). Looks to be a decent pattern. I haven't seen the walleye pattern in any other store or catologue yet.

Sorry to change the subject a bit but has any body tried the jointed or the shadrap RS? I've been using the shadrap RS and the jointed shadrap. I think the jointed shadraps are great. I catch just as many if not more walleye on them than the traditional shadrap. I've been using the crawdad and bass patterns and the crawdad(red underside) by far outfishes the bass pattern. If you havn't tried them give them a shot. The RS on the other hand has not performed that well for me.

I'm interested in the Walleye pattern. It's sounds great. I do agree with you, Borch-- Baby Bass is a hot color. I've had good luck trolling it for 'eyes and casting it for smallies.
