      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 .

Decoy rigging

Recommended Posts

How do you guys rig your decoys? I have been using a 6 ft cord tied to the decoy, the other to a lead strap. Thinking rigging some on a 50ft line using the quick clips.

I like to have at least 12' of line on my deeks. What I do it take 12' of "No Tangle" brand line and I crimp a 8-10" bungy to it (basically looping both ends). On the end of the bungy I crimp on one of the flexible lead weights that allows me to form a U shape. Just wrap up the line, stretch out the bungy so there is pressure on the line and hook the U shape weight on the end of the keel. Works great and the bungy keeps it from comping loose. Very similar to the Ace style anchors.

You can buy cheap little bungy's like 4 for $1.50. I then purchased the 12 oz lead anchors and cut them in half so I had enough for a dozen.

This is what i used.

No Tangle cord

Crimps

6 oz Nuts

I crimp the cord to the decoy and then string about 6 foot out and crimp the end by making a loop for the nut at the end. I then use a large D ring and hook the end where the loop and nut is to the d ring for transport. When i get to where i am hunting i unhook the loop from the d ring and drop it in the water. When i am done hunting i pull the end where the nut is out of the water and hook it to the d ring. The decoys float behind me as i pickup the rest of them.
