      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 .

Crankbaits

Recommended Posts

What are the different speeds everyone uses for cranks?

Last night i tried 1.8 to around 2.5 mph. When i was trolling a small X-Rap last night it didn't really seem like I could feel the wobble very well and I was cruising at around 2.3. Is that normal? My bigger cranks seemed to give me great feel.

Hit me up. Twnsfan

This time of year I am under 2 mph, probably even under 1.8 mph and down to 1.5 mph or less. Smaller baits and stick bait don't put out as much wobble. Depends on your equipment too, a sensitive graphite rod and no-stretch braid will trasnmit a lot more viabration than other setups will.

I got a couple nice walleyes on x-raps last night at 1.6 to 1.7 mph.

I prefer to use large batis in the fall but experiment to see what works. My x-raps are #10's, I like that size bait plus they run good in 4-7 foot depths.

I agree, SLOW is work'n. I've also started stopping for between 5 & 10 seconds. Little early for the longer pauses but shorter have proven themselves. Also,earlier I had been having success with #8 huskys & X-raps but the last few nights started slow'n down a bit. I had upsized to #10 and agree that currently that's where it's at 4 me. Brighter colors in evening & darker in mornings and day have paid out as well.
