      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 .

I dont know about you guys, but I love senkos. But they are so expensive and tear easy. Do cheaper brand senkos work just as good as the Gary Yamato ones

i know dietz on the bass board uses the mister twister version and loves them. for one reason or another bass fisherman seem to get enamered with one particular brand of plastic. for a while it was the power worm, then zoom, now senko. i would imagine with a lure like a senko that has no distinguishing features, any immitation would do just as well.

The main reason they are so fragile is the ammt of salt added to the plastic. Salt is heavier than plastic, so it makes the lure sink faster... and often times, in the process, get you more bites... the Senko sinks fast enough on its own that it creates its own action.. kinda wave like as it sinks.

cheaper knock offs dont usually have as much salt and thus dont sink as fast... I myself use the Exude Comida which in my opinion is less fragile and sinks nearly as fast.

hey bro good to see another rochester basser. I have the itch bad. To answer some of your questions:

Rubber bands:

Rubber bands are for wacky rigging. This is hooking the worm once through the middle. and that is that but instead of hooking just putting the hook under the rubber band. Do a images search for wacky rigging and you will see it.

Secondly Centipedes/french fries or ring fry or many other names they have doe Have a similiar action. I however do knot know the difference or advantage or disadvantage of using them over a senko. Maybe a differnt look.

I personally fish a lot of gander brand plastics or Comidas but have a buddy who swears by dip sticks. It is all prefrance but when come right down to it if i had the money i would probably throw true senkos or there brothers kinamis

you need to make a trip over to the bass room and ask some of these questions and you will get an AMAZING amount of info.

I cant wait till ice is out and i get to try out the new lures that for some reason i get when i cant use them (because there is ice). It funny how the seasons work in the winter, I want to fish open water and during the summer, I want to fish through the ice or go out hunting.

I've used Senkos for fishing Largemouth and they work very well. However like already stated they tear easily and are quite expensive. I found an alternative bait which works just as well in my experience and are much more durable. Called Yum Dingers. They also cost less than Senkos.

      Got some grouse and saw some nice coveys. The biggest was 6 birds but found couple groups of 5. That is always fun.

      we mainly jigged fatheads in front of their mouths. 2 weeks ago also and tried a few different times over 3 days this trip. water is still crazy low so I don't think many boats will be using access. Also tried a couple different plastics and some gulp. Probably ready to go crazy up there soon.  Last year at this time it was really good. Might get there once more before ice time but not sure.

      Been thinking about breaking out the Jiggin Raps, might have to give that a shot. It's been too crowded out there this weekend with MEA going on.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?

      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.
