      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 .

Swedish Pimple and Jiggin Spoons

Recommended Posts

Tip with a fathead (usually just head unless fish are very active). You have to let the fish tell you how they want it worked. My best technique seems to be more active (1' raise) until you can see them on the flasher and then slow it down to a slow jiggle or hop. If they don't like that you either need to change colors or the action. I have caught a lot of fish by just dropping it an inch or two when they are right on it.

I like to tip with a fathead then jig it hard to get fish in. When they are on the bait a slow jiggle will usually enice a strike, let the fish decide!

The swedish pimple, and Glow jigg'in spoons are one of my favorite walleye lures. Just use the head of a minnow, and jig it about a foot off the bottom. Depending on the size of the lure you can also have success with perch, crappies and northerns too!

Tip it with a minnow head and watch the flasher. Try different things and let the fish tell you how they want it.

Start with big lift and fall to bring them in. Then go more subtle and watch your flasher to see how they react.

I always like tip mine with a piece of meat like a fathead,rainbow chub or small shiner head. I like to jig it in 1/2" to 1" strokes and anywhere from 10" to 24" off the bottom. If there are no fish present on my flasher I will lift my lure up as far as I can go and jig it down just as a way to attract fish over but you would be surprised at how many fish will come and grab it on the drop. If you see one come in on the drop pay attention to your line in case it comes up you will not feel the bite but the loss of the weight of your lure. If that happens SET THE HOOK. I am always cautious of what my hands have come in contact with and if in doubt I will wash them especially if you just got done eating.

I like to run a plain hook instead of a treble.We use the small size for crappies and larger sizes for white bass and wipers.I tip them sometimes with plastics but run them naked most of the time.The fish tell you how they want it jigged most of the time.

I used to just tip with a minnow head but one time I was running low on minnows so started using tails, and even mid-section steaks put on the hook. To be honest, I never noticed much of a difference. Caught fish on all presentations.

I like to tip mine with waxies or sometimes wedgies when the fish are more active. A couple waxies works for well for crappies and perch. If I'm looking for walleyes I'll will usually use a minnow head or tail, but usually not the whole thing.

    • A few of our guys hover around the deer with ice cream buckets or freezer bags to get every heart they can get.  I usually make them into jerky.
    • I've done that plenty in the past and find that stuff generally brings a pretty high price. Truth be told I purchased a grocery store/ butcher shop about 18 years ago when it closed. I got some of the equipment but lots of it was sold for good money and secondly the commercial stuff is usually too big and have bigger motors than I care to run as a hobby.  The commercial bandsaws are usually 3-10 hp and some are 3 phase. 
    • Del's gonna tell ya that spreads CWD......
    • Here's my recipe that I've used for many, many years with lots of complements.  1) Shoot Deer. 2) Pull guts and inners out. 3) Leave pile on forest floor to chill until some varmint comes by to enjoy it. They love it every time! 
    • The game was won but 2 missed go ahead field goals in a needed game. Not league leading stuff!
    • I would find an auction of an old meat market or grocery store. You would probably get an old but good quality stainless steel saw for a good price.
    •     Cripe-o-rama!  Now THERE's some real beef cookery!!!  And just ignore dat  babbling little smurf, boober! 
    • Awe GAWD, your ruining it with the bacon!!
    • Well said del. Well mike since your roast thread got cut up so did the roast. Waiting for the coals but here is the bacon wrapped beauty's waiting for the cast iron..  
    • Ya, this sure went south from a lot of those who always quacked about threads going south. Follow that analogy. Gotta disagree with ya on the braising bit though, Del. It won't always be "well done" by the time it's tender. I atill like to follow the pork rule of "low and slow" for most meats.  But, a roast is always good unless ya totally fudge it up. Now ya got me wanting to make one...think I'll go dig around in the freezer, know I've got one buried in there somewhere, just waiting to be melded with aromatics and tasty sauces...  "Beef, it's what's for dinner!"
