      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 .

glass jigs on LOW?

Recommended Posts

TrollnDrift

Hi guys,

We are heading up to LOW this weekend. The resort we are going with said the eyes are hitting glass jigs. I cant find any anywhere at my local stores or online. I have plenty of standard and glow jigs, should I worry about the mysterious glass and glass glow jigs or forget about them? Anyone know where to get some?

Thanks, Erik

I dont think they are a necessity but you should be able to find the jigs at any of the bait shops around LOW. If youre like me, you'll buy more than you need. They came out a couple years ago. I forget the company that makes them but they come in several colors that are inside the glass that makes up the head of the jig. They do work but im sure other jigs will do you just as good too.

The way the fish are biting now, it doesn't matter what kind of jig you are using. I have heard over a dozen different jigs that were the best. I have had some of the best fishing I have ever had and used just a plain old gold roundhead jig. I am not saying you shouldn't buy some because you can never have too much tackle but if you can't find them, it is not the end of the world.

Teir called the nucleus jig, they came out a lomg time ago an were a big hit based on their uniqueness, they were expensive, about 5-6 bucks apiece, didnt take long to dies out, you cn still find some at the local bait shops up there, but not all carry them. Dont know if they even still make them, the shops that still have them, might still be carrying old stock. Sounds like they want to gt rid of that stock. Get yourself a red lindy flyer, red glow rattle varmit, a pink charmer, an use a bobber set an your all good.

Thanks for the replies. I did find old posts on the nucleus jigs, I haven't seen anywhere that sells them locally. Ill keep an eye out for them when we get up there but don't want to spend an arm and leg on a few jigs. Ill look into a few of the mentioned jigs you suggested.

Thanks All! Erik

Also known as tiger eye jigs. I looked for them at mills ff in st cloud and the guy told me they ordered them from the supplier but never got their order.
