      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 .

Sexy new lures!!!

Recommended Posts

Check out these new lures I got from Don (b1f1sh1) at Heckler Custom Tackle. They are some sexy units for sure! I had some very particular specs that I was looking for in these lures and he (as usual) took awesome care of me! Although these lures might look sorta similar to off the rack lures, they're not even close. Don really did an awesome job on them and they're head and tails above anything you could walk into a store and buy.

FYI- Don's a sponsor here on the HSOforum, but I gotta tell ya, I'd say this about him whether he was a sponsor or not. He's taken wonderful care of me as a customer and I'm really, really impressed with his customer service- second to none!

These baits were pretty small, but I've got a sumo-topwater in my garage that makes it pretty clear that Don can build 'em big too. I was looking for small and subtle on these guys, but the one hanging at home is about as subtle as a kick to the gonads!

Don worked with me and set me up with some great lures at Xmas time, you really can't go wrong.

I like those little Mouldy's Topper Stopper spin-offs, I might need to make a call......very nicely done.

Thanks Chris. make sure you take that ''Ride'' down south man. those big bass will kill it just like any muskie/pike will. and your spinnerbait too. after you see that spinnerbait in the water let me know if you figure out (or see it) why i made that neck so big.... pssst... think crawdad. wink

Thanks Muskiefool! smile

Don - how much do those baits weigh?

the first one was 2.5 ozs. the second was a little less than 1.5 ozs.

i put up some on my site similar to the second one and i called it the ''Needle''. feel free to check them out on the ''lures for sale'' page. that double blade in front is designed to clap against the next one. to get technical... the force of the water propelling the rear blade slams it into the blade that is out of the water for an instant and slowed by re-entering the water and so on and so on.... it really creates a nice sound to home in on, especially in rough water. or busy areas. and at night.

    • Fine.  Then pay up for the wild caught gulf or mexican shrimp.  Or eat a pork chop.   You do know that chickens lay eggs from the same orifice they excrete from, right?  Scrambled or over easy?
    • You can also steam cook them in your smoker...

      FROM CURLY'S SAUSAGE KITCHEN page: Steam cooking speeds up the process of the final cooking stage in sausage making. Makes for a better wrinkle free sausage, using humidity as heat source instead of dry heat. Take a full pan of water and bring to a full boil on stove. Place boiling pan of water and put on heat source of smoker Turn heat to high so to keep water at a FULL BOIL. Close damper you want to keep humidity in smoker. Make sure pan of water does not run out, add more boiling water. Cook sausage to 150 degrees, this will take about half of regular cook time. When sausage is cooked cold shower with cold water.
    •   I make 25 pounds of this every year from a seasoning I get from Curly's Sausage Kitchen. It's awesome stuff!
    • I like my Vex 28, super quiet and bright. I will say my 18 was foolproof and easier to use to do the same thing. They are expensive though. 
    • "Mr. Fastidous"...ha! That from a guy who takes hours to cook a steak with a precise digital heating gadget...  I just don't care to strain sh** particles thru my teeth that are in the melted ice water from the imported frozen shrimp, giving ya a good case of gangbangarrhea of the lower blowhole. 
    • fan cooled 380 cc. seat is 1 piece not a 2 up................and ya'd need a track hoe for leeches sales flyers!!!!!!!
    • Hey Smurfy, What size engine?  Fan cooled? Seat in 1 piece?  1 up? 2 up?  Rack on the back to carry Leech’s sales flyers?  
    • Man them last 2 fellers posting are using some big words!
    • The only way my wife shoots a deer if it runs thru the living room.
    • only shot i got right now!!!!!!!!! and put your glasses on................that rope is tied to the floor dolley. its used to stop that floor dolley from damaging whatever it is its going to hit from all that power them ski-doos have when it comes off the dolley!!!!!!! OK so here are some of the finer details, its my wifes machine. 4116 miles and most are trail miles.its a 1995 touring E, electric start. it will come with that dolley, a jug of injection oil, cover and extra belt. i put a new battery in it 2 years ago put hasnt been used in at least 3 years. the only shop maintence thats been done to it is the carbs have been cleaned. it will also need to be relicensed. after both her  knees and both her hips being replaced she has no desire to ride again!
