      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 .

Has anyone had any luck with hotheads. This has been my jig of choice for the last couple years, and never had any complaints.

Thanks for the reply Jigglestick, I have only fished URL for the last couple years and have no complaints about driving 100 miles to enjoy the atmosphere. Have never had a chance to stop in at WW and enjoy the drinks with any of you guys, but hope to in the future, as will be down to put house out and fish. We store house at Hillmans--best people ever. Well enough for now.

I'm partial to Phelps cause Jack and Denny and Matt hung with this town after the walleyes collapsed. Sometimes they rented a house but didn't even bring their rods. smile.gif Tonight their "Glo tubes" or "Glo Hooks", (what ever they call it) in white kicked butt.

Do you know if there are other resorts or places that store houses??

Kelly - Yes, we did hang with Waskish through the good and the bad. Some of the bad was pretty bad. Those fish houses can get kinda scary when you don't have a rod in one hand to slow you down from grabbing for the cans more often.We won't start on that subject again. I know my dad first started selling Shorty Hillman tackle about twenty-five years ago. I am not sure which you were using, but the Glow Tubes can be used with hooks,jigs, or whatever. The Glow Hooks come with Glow Tubes on them. They both work great.Jigglestick, I am glad to hear you are trying the Tick Jig. Hope to see you up there sometime.Possibly at WW for a cocktail.

Buddah:

I too use hotheads, and have enjoyed very good success with them as an anchor jig for crappie minnows. Is this how you use them, or do you actually jig with them? I have thought of doing so, with the horizontalaspect of the jig, but haven't gotten around to it yet...

Stoneeyes317 I also use them as anchors for crappie minnows on one line and jig with the other, using angel eyes or small grub jigs of all different colors.

I am anticipating the bite picking up. Sounds like guys are getting limits while others are getting skunked. Surely worth the gamble in my eyes!

emtbucket - I don't believe S&W has them. I know that Koep's has the Glow Tubes that you can put on hooks.Tell Cliff at S&W to give me a call to get some in. If he is still around anyway. I haven't talked to him since last spring. You can get them many other places from Bemidji and up north. Thanks.

Another that we've been getting good reports back from has been the 1/8 Glow Devil (blue, red, pink & white and red & yellow), as well as the Fat Fry's tipped with a minnow.

Yes there is a difference. The Angeleyes are pretty big... I'd say 2 1/2" long??? The JR's are roughly an inch shorter. My guesstimates could be way off.... just to lazy to go look right now.

The Angel Eye Jr's are smaller than the regular Angel Eyes (and yes, the pink and white as well as the red have been producing). Just looked on the rack on the wall and measured them, the Jr. is about 1 1/2"~they come 12 on a card (although we do sell them individually), the regular Angel Eyes are six on a card. The Glow Devils come either 1/4 or 1/8 oz.

tulikow, I use them all the time. I have 4 rods rigged right now and two of them have Demons. Put some Spikes, Waxies or eurolarve on them. In my opinion there the best jigs.

I agree with Kidd.....I only use Demon jigs when I go up there. Get the big ones...I get better hook-ups with them. I may catch a few fish on other jigs and spoons...but by far the Demon jigs is my favorite. Use a crappie minnow hooked through the back.

Drake,
I ordered some Angel Eye Jr's off the website (twice - one time by phone) and didn't see any sign on there of the full size Angel Eye, but I think I got the full size ones. Are those measurements including the hook? I couldn't figure out how you guys were catching crappies on such a big lure. I went back and they still just show two different cards of Jr's - all glow and a mixed card. Not a major problem cuz they make a nice walleye lure, but I would like to get the Jr's before I make the trek to Red.

salger65,

If there are 12 on the card then you got the Jr.'s, if there are only 6 then you got the full size. Yes, you do catch URL crappies on walleye jigs. The crappies are that big! It's like lipping a largemouth bass.
