      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Lake Trout Jig/Spoon mold???

Recommended Posts

(I posted this in Trout fishing as well):


So I was up in Canada and Lake Trout fishing for really the first time. We did pretty well with 1 oz jig heads with big sucker minnows and stinger hooks - in about 50 feet of water.

I talked to a guy who showed me a lure he says works well. The only problem is that you have to buy the mold and make it yourself.

It was a large lead flat-oval shaped thing with a trebble hook off the bottom. It was about almost 1.5" wide, at least 2" long, and close to .5" thick. His were painted white with silver flecks. He said you tip it with a big minnow head, drop it to the bottom, give three huge jigs and then start cranking up.

I think he said the mold came from a company in Texas (but I'm not sure).

Anyone know what this is?

Here is a nice 30" I caught with just a jig and sucker minnow:

Mskyfshntchr -

Sorry I haven't emailed yet.

Back over in the Trout topic some guys mentioned Slab Spoons and I found these at TNT tackle:

[Note from admin: Please read forum policy before posting again. Thank you.]

I still haven't found exactly what this guy had but these are so close that I will probably stock up on a few - maybe even try some ice-fishing.
