      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 .

Lindy Rattl'n Flyer Spoon

Recommended Posts

With the water temps dropping rapidly in the past few days, the presentation has turned to a slower and more vertical one. I thought it might be a perfect time to try out the new Rattl'n Flyer Spoon by Lindy.

The Rattl'n Flyer Spoon is a lethal break-through jigging spoon hybrid! This new spooner's delight adds Lindy's traditional Flyer's long-proven gliding design to the popular vertical jigging spoon concept—with six fantastic color choices and an extra-loud attention-grabbing brass rattle.

Non-lead alloy construction gives the Rattl'n Flyer Spoon perfect weight balance. It's light enough to shimmer, dance, dart, or fly; yet heavy enough for the "feel" and downward momentum skilled spooners prefer. No need to use a swivel as this spoon does not spin on the "drop"! This active lure is a free spirit that still obeys rod-tip commands!

All sizes and colors feature Bleeding Bait round-bend red treble hooks, holographic/foil finish with lifelike preyfish scale pattern, and irresistible Techni-Glo eyes!

I picked a few different ones up for Ice fishing. Glad they have the DTro seal of approval, nice eye! Did you tip it with a minnow or a head, or just leave it bare?

We put them to a serious test up on Devils Lake in March of this year while fishing with Jason Mitchell and a large crew from around the region.

In a group of 11 we all easily caught at least one limit of walleye and pike, likely several limits as it was on a roll and we C&R a lot of fish. Heck I did 37 pike by noon on one day and 9 walleye myself, many more that afternoon and the fallowing day.

I kept 2 Jason Mitchell Elite Series rods rigged and ready, one with a Salmo Chubby Darter, and the other a Rattl'n Flyer Spoon. If they snubbed one, the other got them to go.

I'll be keeping a few handy this season you can count on that.

I pack both the glow red and the gold whenever I make my journey to Lake of the Woods. It is one of the pure must haves for me up there. Great action, and great sound, equal great fish!

Nice job with the Rattl'n Flyer Spoon Darren.

I'll be giving them a go this winter for eyes and lake trout.

I can't help notice you have an nice hook just off the bottom on your sounder.

Looking to give these a serious try this year in clear water. Those flash/glide baits have worked well for me in the past esp. in clear water situations. Add the rattle and you've got about as all-purpose of a bait I can think of!

The Lindy Rattl'n Flyer is an awesome spoon! The 1/16th they came out with this year will be a killer for jumbo perch and the more tentative eyes!

Also, watch for the Original Viking spoons coming out soon by Lindy as well. I got a few in from Lindy and they have a pretty cool action as well. They are mainly billed for open water casting, trolling and vertical jigging, but I am confident that they will find a place in my ice tackle box as well.

I can't wait to try them out for some of those legendary 3 lbers over in the U.P. later this year!

Yep! Don't count them out for smaller pannies either. I used them tipped with 2 waxies last weekend for gills... Caught about a dozen gills in a pretty short time, largest pushing 10 inches. they might seem like a large spoon for panfishing, but put them to the test and you will become a believer. Don't take my word for it... try it yourself.

The Rattl'n Flyer, hands down, does damage for on ice duty!!

Have fished them since their proto-type stage,and have caught lots o fish on these bad boys..

The new 1/16 ounce, like Dave said, is killer on 'gills and crappies. They love the flash of the holographic color. If times get tough, run a smaller chain dropper of the spoon and tack on one or two euro.

Glad to see Lindy on board here. Great products for both ice and open water presentations.

Is there a better/best way to fish them?

Here is what I prefer:

Hard Jig... Pause and wait for the spoon to settle direct center (lure will flutter out to about 3 feet from center of the hole). Lite finesse jigging for about 5 seconds... pause again. If I mark anything, I will pull up slowely to begin the chase by raising the lure up. I will add some finesse jigging a bit while raising as well. I will repeat the hard jig, pause, 5 second finesse jigging, pause, about 3 cycles of this. If nothing is marked, I will move on to the next hole.

I will also add... the above technique is what I start with... You really need to watch your electronics and let the FISH decide what presentation they are looking for. If fish scatter after the pause... you may want to continue the finesse jigging. You have to pay close attention to what is attracting those fish in.

This jig will be my first jig to try when I get out on the ice for some eye action. Kind of like a little kid in a candy store with this one as it looks to be an awesome eye cacther.

Thanks for the tips Dave

    • Yea, I'm not sure when this project is gonna get evicted from the shop area that i'm using so we had to get it weather proof first. Ideally i think the interior first is a better approach. We ran into some issues wiring that would've been easier handling from the outside. 
    • They don't save cap space that is the whole point. The money is still spent. What it allows them to do is go OVER the cap during such time a player is on LTIR. It doesn't give them relief at all, it just allows them to go over the cap. We already have Coyle on LTIR so it wouldn't do any good to add Parise to that. That would mean two moves would have to happen when they are both healthy. The Wild could do that too, but what sense would that make because they would be forced to be compliant once Parise is healthy. Hossa is likely going to be LTIR all year. At this point I doubt Parise will be out that long. Russo did a very good writeup on it last night for TheAthletic. You can also read up on it on CapFriendly.
    • I'm on board with the others, sounds legal to me!  Best of luck hunting! Kettle
    • Was in Joes sporting goods last night and they had the 8" K drill for $219
    • Sounds good to me.
    • It should be as long as the wma butts up to the lake,
    • Great catch for that spot!  
    • I want to hunt on a Wma that's borders up to a lake. It is legal to launch from the Wma and roam around the lake and hunt on my canoe? Keeping in mind I'm away from houses and not being on land or property.
    • Hey guys, now that you guys are pulling out your houses to check them over it is also a great time to add the Sure Step.  If anyone has any questions let me know or check out my Facebook page SureStepSD.   Thank you.
    • I've been using the Eagle Claw inline for 4 seasons now and it's always been a good cheaper option.  Never had a real problem with it.  For all the drag issues I hear about it, it didn't let me down at all when I hooked into a 27" lake trout while fishing for rainbows last season.  On that note, I was able to try 13's 6061 reel for a bit last season and that sucker is so freaking smooth that I'm going to get one this season.  If don't want to spend $80 on a top-of-the-line inline like 13 Fishing, the Eagle Claw works just fine at $30.
