      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 .

how to re-bait.....

Recommended Posts

Waxies? Dont you use Little atom plastics? What he means would be he "threads the needle" slide the waxie on from head to butt and shape it too the jig. I have done the one spot hook on the waxie, kinda like a wacky rig, just the tip, and threaded the needle, it depends on how the fish are, if your in an area with alot of little fish, go with a plastic, or gulp, if they dont like the gulp or plastic, thread the needle nad youll save your bait awhile.

I've found that fish when picky want bait hooked certain ways. Usually, I do the head to butt thing to hide the hook, other times I just tip the hook with the head of the waxie so it's dangling. On other occassions I have had to tear them in the dangling position which for some reason turns them on also. It all boils down to how the fish react to the different presentations. They can be picky, and sometimes they just want plastic. Oh, and I'm not sold on Genz's tip, not sure what that accomplishes other than easy CnR.

For me it depends on the mood of the fish.. More often than not,I use Eruolarve. But I do bring wax worms with as well. with wax worms I often fish them on a horizontle lure. I try to rig them so they hang pretty straight. Much like you would hook a minnow in the summer time. If fishing on a verticle jig, I will often do my best to get it to hang at a 45 degree angle to the hook.

Thats how I do it, and what works for me.

I second Deitz on this. I usually use Eruolarve as well and will put to are three hanging vertical on the hook. Can do the same with waxies.
