      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 .

The Good Old Days of 50 Cent Jigs

Recommended Posts

Anybody remember the good old days when you could pick out your favorite jigs for fifty cents a pop? Seems today those same jigs are $1 to $2.50. Ouch.

With winter fast approaching I started thinking about getting everything organized for first ice. This weekend I opened up my jig boxes. Quite a bit of value in there for a collection of hooks and paint. But a few of them caught my eye. Late last winter I bought some Tiger jigs from Outdoor Pro Series. I was impressed. Caught a bunch of fish, enough to shoot a little underwater footage of the gills and crappies destroying them. Those jigs worked out great and caught some memorable fish.

Seeing those jigs brought back the memories of a couple nice late ice trips but they also reminded me that quality, fish-catching jigs don't have to cost you an arm and a leg. The good old days of 50 cent jigs are still here. Check out those Outdoor Pro Series Jig Kits before you hit the first ice to get into those active fish, and save some money to get you to the lake. Sharp hooks, vibrant colors, quality paint and lead, and all the jig body styles you need. You might think I'm just trying to sell you something you don't need, but add up your purchases when you buy the exact same jigs at the gas station counter for a couple bucks a pop and then try to tell me these jigs aren't worth every penny.

Even with a little shipping, an unbeatable per-unit price that is available all year round.


Get a few for first ice or Christmas. I wouldn't mind a few in my stocking, that is for sure!
