      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 .

plastics used in ice fishing?

Recommended Posts

I consider my ice fishing knowledge pretty limited so this might be a dumb question. I was just wondering if any body uses soft plastics for fishing in the winter time like a plastic worm or something like that? Organizing some jigs for a mill lacs trip and was sorting through my plastics when I thought about this. I picked up some fin tech knuckleball jigs from the ice show that are pretty cool. Wondering if attatching a plastic worm on there would get any bites for ice fishing or any set up kind of like I mentioned. I've only ever used jigs befor with a minnow or some waxxies on there.

There are probably better options than a plastic worm. These are some of the more common plastics used for ice fishing. Plastics are used more so for panfish though.

last week I use gulp smelt falvor, just took off the split tail and hooked it on and jigged it caught a lot of panfish and perch. I also cut the rest of the body into 1-1 1/2 inch strips so they go alot farther.

I also found these on the internet. Look like they may work for some walleyes or crappies, Ive never tried them though. If im fishing walleyes I usually feel more confident with some sort or meat on my hook.

I use plastics a lot for panfish, usually using the plastic in place of bait like waxies or euros.

I don't really use plastics for walleyes, I usually use a jigging spoon with a minnow head -- that's my favorite walleye bait. Next favorite is a whole minnow on a deadstick.
