      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 .

Any suggestions for Bucktail Box/Bin/Storage etc.....

Recommended Posts

i currently use a bucket to store all my spinner baits and bucktails (hang em on the edge of the bucket)...any one know if there is a better storage option or something that works really well for hanging tails and spinners so they dont get so tangled and not organized???

The lakewood spinnerbait box is really nice, but it is gonna cost you some jingjing $$.

I use my older plano hanging bait boxes just for bucktails and spinners b/c you can pull out the dividers and make the spaces wide enough to put the spinners in a slot and have there arms in another slot w/o having to bed the arm. (I could throw up some pics later, if needed).

there is a divider system that fits in a pail, but not sure how it would work for spinners.

that is about all know

The bucket deal is called something really simple like muskie bucket or something. I almost bought one but ended up with a Lakewood instead. I like it a lot but need to wear a weight belt anytime I move it.

A foam cooler is a nice alternative to the bucket, you can sink the hooks into the foam to keep them from moving and hooking each other. Although you have to search around to find the high quality kind that won't explode when you accidentally kick them.

They're probably not the greatest for a permanent tackle box but they're really nice to use as temporary storage when you're switching lures in the boat on the water - Attention Fall Trollers who are constantly switching lures trying to dial in depth, size, and color patterns.

Rollie and Helens sells a bucket insert for about $20. Seperates the baits well and holds around 20 bucktails pretty easily.

I have a Lakewood and like it, but it's heavy as HugoBox mentioned. It's a bit hard to see the lures though, as it's all black inside.

Another idea I've seen is to use a milk crate, it holds 16 tennis ball cansiters prefectly. Pretty cool idea really!

I've made a couple bucktail boxes from plastic file folder storage boxes. I drilled a holle every 1/2" around the edge and added a plexiglass center divider noched every 1/2". Works nicely. Total cost about $8. Not quite tall enough for DCG, but good for reg bucktails and spinnerbaits.
