      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 .

Jr's "Stop Sign" in glow red!! By far the best producing jig I have used yet on L.O.W. I have one in one size or another tied on at least 2 rods at all times! Last winter I caught, smallies,northern,walleye,perch,pout,tulibee,sauger and crappie on it, it never fails!

I like to pull on my Chubby!

laugh

I start with an aggressive lure and work progressively down to less aggressive lures as needed. I find the Chubby can cover a wide range of moods..up to and including negative..than I go with Chubby dropper rig.

Or.. a Northland jigging spoon, Lindy Rattl'n Flyer, Angel eye, Demon, ect..rigged with a dropper hook, or a plain hook and a slit shot.

Sounds like everyones GoTo Lure is a jigging spoon of some sort. Now to sounds completely stupid, how do you fish jigging spoons? Whats the proper cadence? Just Jiggle Jiggle Sit?

Depends on how the fish are acting. Some days a jiggle, some days a snap, some days a jiggle then a slow reel up and hopefully a chase and a smack.

On my favorite body of water, my go-to is a black/gold jigging shad. Usually outfishes spoons every time. On LOW, like NAMA, I like JR's glow pink stop signs and glo drops.

I like to use only a head of a minnow and it seems to work better if I pinch it off but that might be because the edges are rough and a lot of the time the air bladder is still attached. I jig with a steady jiggle-1/2 to 1 inch lifts and every now and then if there is nothing on the Marcum I will give it a 3 foot lift and a slow drop while I jiggle it down. If a fish comes in I try to keep the same motion and pay attention to my flasher and try and gauge the mood. if he is hungry he will come in and chomp right away but some times you will have to tease them and when they do take there will not be a bite but they will inhale the head and sit there and if you don,t detect that and set the hook right away you will miss them cause they will spit out the head just as quickly. You will get quite a few takers on the drop and if you don,t pay attention to your flasher you will not see them come up and inhale the jig and all you feel is the rod get light and that is the time to set the hook.

My first and second choice would be either a Scenic Tackle Angeleye or a Northland forage minnow in perch.

I love the Northland forage minnow. I used the Angel Eye lures last year for the first time on the Mississippi out of Maiden Rock. Tipped them with the head of a fathead and pounded the Walleye & Sauger.
