      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 .

Curly Sues

Recommended Posts

I have 2 of them, and they are the size that is close to a pound. I have thrown them a little, but I haven't really figured them out. Seems I have to work them slow to keep the lure to run straight. The plastic/rubber seems very strong on these baits. If I could only get them to run the way I want them to......

As for color, that really depends on the lake and its forage. Match the hatch and you will be fine. More natural colors in clear water I have found work for me.

I love them too, I add a weight to the front to get them to run the way I want. It's tough to work them fast and get them deep.

Bulldawgs have been bad in the past, all the one's i've gotten within the last 2 months have been very good. Thorne has mag dawgs for $12 while they last.

I have the 9, 11, and 13" sue's. Walleye, black, sucker, black and orange are all good choices. I'm looking to get some of the shallow versions this winter to use as surface baits next year.

I like the walleye color, and yes I have noticed they hold up better. They also don't seem to foul as much on the cast which to me is the biggest difference and probably why they do hold up better.

Hey not trying to hijack the post, but if you want the durable of the durable -- try a swamp donkee -- they have similar action to the sues and dawgs -- but the body is made form solid mold plastic. These babies are durable -- the tails are soft and replaceble/ interchangable. Just another option to consider.

I've used a swamp donkey, they are cool and very durable/user friendly, but IMO the tail doesn't even come close to having the same action as a dawg/superd/sue. It's stiffer and shorter.

I had the same problem. I changed leaders and after that they worked fine. Prefer the Sues over the Dawgs, but have also found the northerns love them.
