      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 .

Stupid bait

Recommended Posts

I love those E/C 775 hooks when fish get hooked they stay hooked, I use to hate them just because, with no real reason I guess, then I started using them on everything except big baits on advice from an old Muskie god.

That fine wire sets the hook itself and Ive never had a hook bend on fish well over 50 inches.

One other thing I like about them is they cut easy unlike Mustad 3551's, but I do like the 3551's allot they hold well too.

Cool bait, The hole in it is an interesting idea. I'd like to see that in action.

Since we got on the subject of hooks... are the mustad 3551 the hooks used on the DCG's if so can you get them with a shorter shaft?, and are they using 7/0 on those baits as well?

Another question about the eagle claw's with the rounded point, is there any reason to use that style over a straight point or is it just personal preference? - Thanks

I have a double round file I made for the curved hooks they dont take much to sharpen at all. The bait turns 180 with almost no forward movement, so its a great target.

They are 3551's on the DCG I'm sure, I wish Mustad made them short but all the finer wire are round bend and for me they lose more fish than they hook.
