      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 .

My new tackle box!

Recommended Posts

Ok so my dad and I were at Fleet Farm last night and we stumbled by this great deal!!

We at first had 2 of these tackle boxes filled to the gills:

and then we converted both of our boxes into this one, it came with 8 plastic boxes inside of it and we only really used 3 of them.

I have a similar bag that holds 6 boxes, my problem is most of the boxes are filled with crank baits which take up a lot of space. I do like my bag, but for some strange reason it is getting awful heavy. I wonder if it could be all the gear I manage to stuff in all the side pockets? Hmmmmmmmmmmm.........

Jordyn, I have the exact same tackle set up that you and dad do now. I took a sharpie and wrote on the sides of the boxes what is in each, generally speaking: crank baits, stick baits, top water/bass stuff, spinner rigs and terminal tackle. It makes looking for stuff a lot easier and if someone else is fishing with you all you have to do is tell them which box it is in.

Oh yeah, the front pocket will hold a medium size box that I put all of my jigs in, each bin labeled of course

Yes, it does get heavy, but I rarely take it out of the boat

I have also have a bag set up, i got mine from 'Belas and its in a back pack form. there is room for four boxes down below and I can put all my plastics and another 2 boxes in the top inside pouch. my clippers, pliers and that sorta stuff go in the top outside pouch. it even has a pocket for a gps or camera.

I love the back pack form because it makes carrying it very very easy and allows me to carry rods and other things without having to worry about it slipping off my shoulder.

tackle bags are deff the way to go

Jordyn I was a fleet a weak ago and saw those boxes and what a great deal they are. Well I guess I'm going back to do some more

"looking". I'm do for a new tackle box 10 years is a long time for the old boy but its time to retire it with honor.

I like the box a lot!

Have you ever seen a "box" Jordyn? J/K

Yup. I'm careful to only buy bags / boxes with heavy duty, large "toothed" zippers. Chincy, fine zippers don't last long in my boat.

If you don't mind me asking, how much was it? It looks like exactly what I'm looking for and if the price is right I'm gonna go look at it tomorrow.

    • When doing a Repo it's best to have some good pictures for them to try and copy. Part of the issue is they make a lot of their fish off molds they have made over the years of different size fish.  Not sure if they have to make a new mold if the cost will be more? That is why I have never had one done of this 36" inch Laker I caught and released a few years ago. It was really long but thin and all the molds the two company's I talked to had were big bellied Lakers from like Canada that didn't look anything like it. So I just didn't want to spend about $5-6 bills for a fish that didn't look much like the one I caught.  
    •   Thank you sir, I will check them out.   Phone pic of a disposable camera pic. Wish I would have got a little more detail. At sunset, lighting was bad.   Oct 21st bass. Big mouth and head, belly was not oversized, but it was a tall fish all the way back. No weight, but I am guessing it cracked 7 lbs.   I remember reading a couple years later after Mark Raveling broke the state record, and he said a 7 lb bass in MN is a once in a lifetime fish.   I now tend to agree with him.      
    • I just had to wiggle mine back and forth. The tolerances are pretty tight so it is not hard to bind it up. You should not have to use much force at all. I agree the design is so stupid and high maintenance. My next one will probably be with a torsion axle. Did you buy this from a dealer? 
    • I don't know anything about these but if you can put some heat to it , it might help
    • Not sure how the hell you guys “just slide it off!” It took me a good hour just to take off the metal retaining ring, this darn house is only 3 years old!! But after taking the ring off the axle doesn’t budge at all, tried jacking it up with a floor jack and it just flexes the stub it rests on. Pulling feels like trying to pull a 75 year old oak tree out of its roots; I soaked it with penetrating oil before calling it quits tonight; my last resort now is itll break and I’ll get some sort of wiggle room with the axle otherwise I put everything back together, pump it with grease and jack it up and down until it gets free?   Otherwise I’m going to have to bring it in and there’s another $200   i told the wife I’m ready to sell this PITA after only having 3 weeks with it; the axle design is the worst, why would they expose everything to the salt? Frustrated as you can tell...
    • SG is a 2013 with about 4K miles on it.
