      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 .

Jigging Spoons-Treble hook or single hook

Recommended Posts

Just wondering what your preference is when it comes to jigging spoons. Do you keep a treble on if it was bought with one or do you change it out to a single hook? Any pros/cons of either?

On the smaller spoons I like to change the treble out with a single hook, more for panfish and perch, on the larger spoons I have some with singles, and some with trebles. I have found no difference in the catching. It is easier to remove a single hook when deeply hooked though.

I agree, single hook on smaller spoons seems best...it is a pain trying to get a small treble out of a 7 inch perch's mouth. For walleyes I like to exchange the trebles that come with the jigs to Daichi (sp?) trebles. These extremely sharp hooks on the back of the thumbnail are "sticky" and it seems like they go through the bone in the eye's mouth a lot easier. I use to lose a number of fish near the hole, but have not had that problem in the past 6 or 7 years.

I usually change out the trebles for the little 3 in. leaders with a blood hook. If using a whole minnow gives them a lot more area to move.

My 2 cents. I only use HALI chain hook spoons. Single hook on a chain works great! Now that they have 3 replacement hook sizes available I can change up or down, depending what bait I want to add to it, small minnow or soft plastics. Sharp hooks, very easy to check your cholesterol...
