      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 .

Ahhh, the airplane/flyer type jigs, the past couple winters if I don't have an AE on it's one of these bad boys! Live/frozen/salted shiner hooked thru the mouth and back up behind the head as far as you can get it. Experiment with different jigging motions till you figure out what they want. Hang it still for a bit, drop it to the bottom and let it lay for a bit....the fish will let you know depending on their mood. My biggest winter Wally last year and my biggest so far this year came on one of these. I would'nt go onto LOTW without a selection of these babies. I SWEAR BY THEM!!!! If I had to pick one lure for winter Walleye fishing on LOTW it would probably be one of these, with the AE jr. a close second....very close.

Great info.
Do you use a stinger at all? I tend to tinker with lures, do you clip or bend the wings? Do you try to get em to circle wide or are they good "out of the box"? And how aggressive can you jig them? 1-2 feet up at a time?

Thanks

1/16, 1/8, and 1/4 ouncers are what I use up here anyways for Wally's. Usually I have the smaller ones going as the sink/circle rate is slower. I also use them Pike fishing occasionally, for this I use the bigger ones with the bucktail on them.

These are great lures on LOTW, jig down near bottom and then when those nice suspended fish come thru high you crank up to the fish, hang it there and they usually smack it.
