      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 .

"Glojigs"

Recommended Posts

Has anyone had any luck with these battery powered jigs? I am making a trip to Upper Red and Lake of the Woods this weekend and hope to give them a try.
I noticed the threads were kind of screwed up, the cap didn't want to screw on straight. The light still worked though.
Just looking for positive/negative feelings on this new product.

Thanks,

I used it once and the battery was dead in about 20 minutes. I wasn't impressed. I'll be interested to hear how it works out for you.

In my opinion your money is better spent on new super glow luminescent jigs than battery powered gadgets. If you want to put batteries in something put them in a good camera flash and than use rechargeable batteries for that.

Northland and Costume Jig's and Spin's have new super glow finishes that last up to 45 minutes compared to the old 15 to 20 minute a shot glow jigs. Better use of a dollar and less junk in the tackle box that never get used in my opinion.

I use a Vivitar 2000 flash avalable at Wall Mart for $18 and powered it with Rayovac rechargeable alkaline batteries. I hate buying $200 worth of throw away's every year, don't do it any more. My second year on the same batteries and they hold a charge very well and recharge fast too. Environmentally friendly too.

Well worth the investment in the charger. I use the rechargeable in all my outdoor stuff, GPS, flashlights, cameras, flash's, radios, and lighted market buoys.

We have used the "Glojigs".
Mille Lacs = one (1) Burbot.
Lake of the woods = one (1) Burbot.
Red Lake = one (1) perch & one (1) Burbot.
We gave them a fair shake - jig...

Hey Eddy!
I've been using this little light called a pocket beam. It has a super intense blue beam that really does a number on the new glow in the dark stuff! It also fits on a keychain, or your jacket zipper. Cost is alot less than 18 dollars and the battery is supposed to last up to ten years. Mine is still like the day I took it out of the package. I got one sitting right in front of me with your name on it! Paul

Hey Paul,
Where can I get one of those? I met with Jeff Beckwith the other day and he showed me his. Wow! that thing is bright! I made the mistake of looking at the light when I lit it up (I'll be more carefull next time).

Would the small laser with the red beam work the same?, or is it something about the blue beam?.

    • I will decide if that is true when I get my nills back out. hopefully soon. 
    • Would you be able to post pics of your bed again?  I really like that idea, very smart.  Would you make any changes on the next one.  Should get my firebrand shell this week, lots to do.
    • Beaver Bay sports rents although I've never used them. 
    • There's really no wrong way of doing a roast if ya ask me, it's all personal preference. Crockpot,  roaster, oven or boiled (del) . Although I do enjoy throwing cold smoke this time of year at a roast before it hits the roaster!!
    • 2nd that,  30 years here...
    • oh wow!!!!!  poster too!!
    • Yer gonna be blowin' chunks one of these days, Delbert. Why not just an easy overnight marinade, then in the crackpot on low, and lift that lid a few times to keep the heat low? I always pull mine at 4-5 hours on LOW, not the 6-8 they say. I have about 155* internal and still pinkish at that, and I have 3 different crackpots I use. Never had it fail in oh, ten or fifteen years.....maybe because I always do a top round or rump, instead of an arm or chuck. You DO  occasionally get a tougher one, that has a lot of sinew in it, that's why I eyeball mine so carefully. (working 2 yrs at the butcher shop helped, too) I always let it sit in a covered glass dish for 10-15 mns before I start slicing away....
    • I worked with stainless for 28 years, it's the way to go.
    • Yeah, I forgot to include the LEM, which is basically the Rikon with a different badge. I know that style will cut better and definitely be a better unit. Just not sure if I am going to justify the price at 2x higher for a very occasional piece of equipment.    A wood bandsaw could be used. The saw doesn't know whether it's cutting meat or wood. The difference is that a stainless table and blades would be preferred IMO. Cleanup probably isn't much different between all of them.
