      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 .

Clankin rap

Recommended Posts

I was at fleet farm in rochester the other night and noticed that they had the new clankin raps in stock. The yellow perch color is awesome looking. The only size they had was a 7/8 oz. which is a little on the heavy size for everyday use, but none the less I cant wait to add some to my box. At $10 a pop though, I think it will be one at a time.

I also read in Bassmaster magazine that the new DT-20 is a metal lipped crankbait. I thought this was basically a dt-16 with a weight in the bill. Does anyone know for sure? Rapala is also releasing a dt-1 crank which is a type of wake bait from what I've read.

Pretty excited for the new baits. They also have a new Gliding bait which should come in handy for negative mood fish early in the year, as well as a new shallow running x-rap shad. I think the 20 is a little bigger than the 16 and yes, it has a metal bill. DT-1 should be very similar to a 1 minus but run a little shallower. But maybe the paint will stay on, unlike the 1 minus.

The images I saw of the DT-20 were of a DT-16 with some metal weights in the bill. Unless they revamped it since ICAST, which is possible. My tackle box will play host to a bunch of the new DT-1 Fats. I think that is my favorite style of crank bait, the little baby shallow runners. Love the reaction strikes I get from them.

The DT-20 is a DT-16 with a round metal piece in the lip to achieve the additional depth. It is a great bait, as the results from a couple of recent FLW events will prove. David Fritts and Terry Bolton were both throwing them last week down at Falcon.

The DT-1 Fat and DT-3 Fat are both awesome baits as well. If you like shallow cranking, you'll love these baits.

There will be some shows coming out this winter showcasing these new baits and the footage is incredible.

You may want to consider asking the government for some bail out money so you can afford all these new baits!
