      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 Little Joe

Recommended Posts

Lindy-Little Joe has proven time and again that its live bait rigs and lures are truly deserving of the title “Legendary” and its lineup of ice tackle is no exception. From proven jigs like the Genz Bug and Frostee to the innovative products like the Rattl’n Flyer Spoon, look to Lindy to cover your hard-water needs.

This year sees an exciting addition to the already deadly line of Rattl’n Flyer Spoons. They are now available in a 1/16 oz. size – small enough to catch bluegills and perfect for finicky walleye! The unique action of this lure allows you to “cast” under the ice as it glides away from the hole, returning to a vertical position when jigged. In essence, it allows you fish an area much larger than what could be accomplished with other lures. Just pound the bottom a few times, reel up, and repeat – but be sure to hold on, with a built-in brass rattle and irresistible flutter the fish can’t resist! Tip it with a minnow head, waxies or spikes and you’ve got a deadly combination for all species of fish.

While jigging the new Rattl’n Flyer with one rod, it is always a good idea to rig another rod with a Thill Gold Medal float and live bait. This combination allows you to effectively fish with two different tactics from virtually the same location. Apart from being the most sensitive floats on the market, the Thill Gold Medal Supreme floats have a unique feature which allows the angler to use them as a fixed float, slip float, or even remove them to fish no float at all! Mini Shy Bites and Mini-Stealth floats are perfectly designed fixed floats for the dedicated Panfish angler and Ice ‘N Fly floats, which can be used as fixed or slips, are ideal for use with tip-ups or for “dead sticking.”

Techni-Glo is yet another legendary concept created by Lindy. It was the pioneer for super bright, long-lasting glow in dark lures. Glow red, blue, green, and chartreuse are the four primary colors of Techni-Glo that have been widely received by successful ice fishing enthusiasts. Glow lures are important because of the low light conditions which confront every ice angler with the need to attract fish from long distances, and Techni-Glo rises to the challenge with not only an ultra-bright glow, but one that is the actual color of the lure. This allows for a fine-tuned approach in living color! Also check out the Techni-Glo tazer, a product guaranteed to super-charge your glowing arsenal.

For a full list of available products in the Lindy ice lineup, be sure to check out lindylittlejoe.com for details and useful tips from Dave Genz, Ted Takasaki and other experts in the field. Take Lindy fishing, you won’t regret it!

These things ae making a huge difference on Upper Red right now. With this years super dirty water the flutter and rattle all presented with some wicked glo power is triggering walleye like no other right now. It is not very often I sway from my old stand by jigs but this is one new lure I an very happy to have tied on right now.

Great write up, Harvey! The ONLY problem with Lindy tackle is deciding which one to use! Genz Bugs, Worms, Fat Boys... and especially now the Rattl'n Flyer Spoons. Awesome innovations by Lindy!

I've been using the Rattlin Flyer Spoons/deadstick combo lately for perch and it's been pretty darn deadly.

The water here is pretty muddy still, the comob glow rattle of the Flyer spoon is awesome.

Tipped with maggots or a minnow head has worked best for me.

I love the Lindy Line! I landed my first LOTW wall hanger last March on while jigging a Gold Rattl'n Flyer trying to entice her to bite when BLOOP my dead stick was the ticket.... Guess what! The Lindy Red Glow Genz Worm was the winner!!!!! I love the action of the Flyers and get great glow options with the Genz worm, Frosties too on the dead stick. Lindy's in my box every time and usually on the line!

Thanks for this baby Lindy!!!

    •   True that!  
    • Starting at Daga (this week) you have to have your drivers entered 30 minutes prior to the first practice. It used to be you had to have picked them the night before qualifying, so if practice was on Friday and qualifying was Sat. you could use practice to help make entries. Now it will all be done before the first practice.
    • Scoot, I have had the same issues with both my 11 year old boy and 14 year old girl.  They have both ended up with opportunities each years.  Frustrating as it my be, it is still worth it.  Thats why we have teams to pick each other up, i might bet, being a Scoot child, she will impress us by the end.   Good luck out there!
    • I'll try to get some pictures posted today. I also had Morgan out on Saturday and she just didn't have the patients 2 stick it out shoot a bird. She made it until 8:15 and was ready to quit. I tried like heck to get her to stay but she was tired and whiny and ready to go. Seemed like a time where it was best to try to accept losing the battle but hopefully winning the war so we packed up and headed home. After I loaded the truck we turned around and went past the spot our blind had just been and there was a nice tom 20 yards away from where we just left. Doah!   I'm a little concerned about getting her out enough to have a legitimate chance with her. I kind of regret including her on the team because I'm not sure she will hunt enough to have a legit chance. 10 year old little girls have a mind of their own no doubt! She's not nearly as driven and single track minded as Ryan is when it comes to hunting.
    • Great job- Love to hear the kids getting birds.   Congrats
    •     Time to explore other states I think...  
    • Thanks. I decided to go with my gut, and ordered medium light action 8'6" Depthmaster rods. Spent some time trolling with them the other day, and I think they'll be fine. Just gotta remember to be careful with the larger fish around the boat when netting. Now if I could just better understand seasonal locations/presentations for my local walleye, I'd be all set! Trolled for 4.5 hrs without so much as a nibble yesterday. Trolled various cranks and harnesses the entire time, at different depths/speeds (1.0-1.5 mph with harnesses, and 1.8 -2.4 with cranks), hoping to make contact with one. I did find the Precission Trolling app to be pretty darn accurate with my dive curves though. So that was refreshing ... :-)
    • Nice bird! After my uneventful day Sat I gave Sunday a break Going out Monday morning to see If I can tag one.
    • Just me, or is 7:15 odd for birds to fly up to roost? 2 just flew up 75 yds out.
    • Congrats Donbo. Great looking bird.
