      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"

Question

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.

Never buy one again!

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 think that's exactly what I should have done. It would have probably reached me sooner. 
    • I'm thinking of selling my IceGator and going with the Strikemaster. Looking at the Strikemaster, it is not as bulky and heavy. The IceGator does cut ice like butter, especially with a Strikemaster 224 bit!
    •   The default temp is 360 for the NuWave 36001 Brio I mentioned above, but it can be programmed as high as 390. I absolutely agree that it does make a difference for certain things to get those extra 30-40 degrees.
    • yes i did i messaged him directly outside of the post
    • Looks like the Hawks might be without Crawford the rest of the season.   http://nhl.nbcsports.com/2018/01/16/report-blackhawks-concerned-crawford-could-miss-remainder-of-season/
    • We use a line voltage thermostat, with it set in the "cool" position.  Once it hits the set temp the thermostat kicks the fan on, until it gets below the set point.  Works pretty well.  
    • Strange I received our notification for WI yesterday but the page does not show any update. Either way WI permits are out. Already planning and getting blinds ready for this spring    
    • I have not used one, but they have attracted my attention. I have a wheelhouse but think this would be a better early ice option. Surprised at how pricey they are, but aluminum must be spendy! I think your ability to pull with the snowmobile will vary with snow depth, slushy conditions etc..... Studs will probably be helpful?  If you go that route, report back how it works!
    • I finally used it I was just testing it out getting the feel of things so didn't follow a recipe just cut up some Yukon gold potatoes zucchini onion and threw in a bunch of chicken breast. 1 can of cream of chicken and 2 cups of beer. Actual cook time after pressurized 12 mins. Some of the most tender chicken I have ever had.   Next day I made some jasmine rice and cubed some chicken breast and coated with sesame chicken sauce. Didn't think the sauce would steam good on its own so I put half cup of water as well. Then drained liquid when itt was done cooking and tossed them in more sauce before eating.   All in all I like it so far pretty easy stuff.
