      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 .

For me it's been the glow color. But like Jon said all colors will have their moments.

Sportsmans warehouse and Scheels have them in the 12 bulk packs without the jig heads. Otherwise Fleet has the 10 pk with a couple jigheads.

You want to look for them with the Mico size stuff. I couldn't find them at Gander because I was looking in the regular plastics area.

I've been using primarily a #6 Little Atom Optic jig. But I have also used a 1/32 & 1/16 collarless jighead as well. There are a few other ice jigs with a long #6 hook shanks that will work as well.

Good Luck!

How do you fish these in open water for crappies? We do a fair amount of early season fishing in shallow water. Do you use a bobber or simply cast and jig?

They work very well for open water, which what they were originally designed for. They will work well rigged either way. Under a bobber with a little wave action they will excel.

Sorry for all the questions but I'm a plastics rookie. If you use a bobber, how do you hook the plastic to the jig? Like a live minnow behind the dorsal fin?

No, you just run the hook from the head of the plastic as far as you can back. This way the hook is closer to the back of the bait and will help you hook more fish! With a lot of the plastics that I use it is vital that the bait is horizontal in the water!
