      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 .

Rigging up a Bass box?

Recommended Posts

I fish mostly walleyes. But being I live very close to a few awesome Bass lakes I figure I will get into bass fishing a bit. What do I need in my new box to keep me happy in the boat. I already have some spinning rods and will be picking up a couple casting rigs. What does one need?

Where to start??? I'll list my Top 5 go-to lures in no particular order....

1.) Gary Yamamoto Senkos

2.) Yamamoto 3 1/2" Tubes

3.) SPRO Dean Rojas Frog

4.) Football Jigs

5.) YUM Money Minnows

This list doesn't even scratch the surface, but I clearly like pitching plastics!!!!

Here is what a starter list might include...

Spinnerbaits - double willow and colorados in white, chart, black/blue

Swim jigs - check the swimjig thread

Football head jigs - 1/4 up to 3/4 oz.

Cranks - three sections here

a. Lipless cranks such as Rat'l traps and Strike King Red Eye Shad in chrome/black, gold/black, firetiger, sexy shad

b. Shallow diving and Stickbaits - Mann's Baby 1 Minus, Rapala DT-01 Fat, and Rapala floating along with huskys. Many different colors work well - great early season bait over young weeds

c. Deep Cranks - I love Rapala DT-6, DT-10, and DT-16. Depending on the depth you are fishing, pick one, cast it out and reel it in. Bump a rock, you better hang on tight.

Plastics - Too many to list, but a few would be soft plastic jerk baits (senko, dinger, comida) 7" curl tail worms, creature baits, tubes, craws. There are so many out there.

Terminal tackle - worm weights, split shot, 2/0 - 5/0 wide gap worm hooks, 1/0 and 2/0 Finesse Wide Gap Gamakatsu's, tube weight/rattles.

Anything else you want to know, just go jump in Deitz's boat and go for a ride.

    • Grainbelt - the rig is 6 years old.  Is it likely that a solder joint would go bad after that time?  I have another TV on comcast and I hope that if it still works I can eliminate the cable system as the problem.  Is it likely - reasonable - that the TV would crump out after 6 years?  I have no idea what the life expectancy is on these things.
    • Go to the menu screen if you can and you can use a flashlight and shine it into the screen and look close to see if you can see any video. If you can then the backlight LED's quit working and your video bd is good. If you cannot see anything the video bd may not working or possibly it isn't receiving power from the power supply. I had a bad solder joint on the connection between the LED driver and power supply. The whole connector wiggled through the bd from bad soldering. I touched up the solder joints with a soldering pencil and it has not blanked out since.  My TV is a Vizio 55. Most likely you can find parts on hsolist. Good info on how to fix HD TV's on youtube.
    • A free pass to help control the grays?
    • *BANG*!       
    • these get a free pass  
    • The viewpoints would be a lot "different" but that doesn't necessarily mean it would be "better."  The military must think a volunteer force is better than mandatory enlistment, or it would probably go back to its old way of doing things.
    • No Dave, I have never worn a flag bikini or stuck one in my hot dog!  Stuck my hot dog in a bikini once but that's another story,  nice try!
    • First time we have had this one in the yard if that's what it is. Not marked off in my book. 
    • Probably a bad board that was discontinued the month you bought the TV and no replacements are available because a million other people had the same problem.  I have had 2 Samsung plasma screen televisions go out in similar matter.  Fortunately i had a replacement warranty from Best Buy that replaced the first one and when the second one went out within a year they refunded my money and i went LG.  I believe it was a power supply board that was the issue with mine.  MY brother in law had the same TV and the video board went out in his but luckily i was able to swap the video board out of my defective television and his is still working.  Keep in mind this is when a 42"-50" television was $2,000 so a guy can understand the frustration when you only got 16 months out of it.
    • If you find a deal use whatever you saved to buy/make an extended run tank.  Things are worth their weight in gold.  Nothing better than ripping the starter cord once and never having to worry about it the rest of the weekend.  Delchcchi made a good point as well about having a place locally who is able to do warranty work.  Honda's notoriously are well built and I've never had a problem with mine but you never know.
