      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 .

How do you keep your tackle organized?

Recommended Posts

Other then in plano boxes......for me one example is rapalas. I label the row with the model and depth range. To me they all look the same after a while. crazy.gif

Any others?

I take a fine permanent marker, and put the

depth on the crank-bait's lip. As you said, they all

look alike once out of the box..

I don't keep a lot of different diving or sinking lures, just some good ones. The diving lures all have the running depth written on them with permanent marker.

Each species has its own tackle boxes that are labeled such. Then I use Todays Tackle pouches to keep the tackle oraganized within that box. As for the crank baits I keep most of them at home except the ones I am going to use that day and a few extras. One of the hardest things on tackle is bouncing around in the boat and rubbing against eachother. take just what ya need and use the pouches to keep it in top notch shape and organized.

For my crankbaits I purchased a box that holds the baits vertical, each has its own area and can't get hooked together. The boxes are not carried in stores, I got my at a walleye fishing expo. It works great.

I have a tackle bag that holds 8 3700s. I have them organized by type:

1. stickbaits

2. crankbaits

3. spinnerbaits/spoons

4. plastics #1 (assorted plastics/hooks/weights)

5. plastics #2 (senko-type lures/hooks/weights)

6. crappie jigs and terminal tackle

7. Crappie plastics

8. muskie lures

i also have a smaller box that fits in the front pocket of the tackle bag for walleye jigs. I have one of those snell things with the velcro for another side pocket, along with various bags of plastics in another side pocket. Mine even has a hard-sided sunglass case on the front of it, along with sleeves for pliers, nail clippers, hook sharpener, and jaw spreader.

Keep a huge box orginized to your preference. When you head out take 1-4 poles rigged different and keep a small tray or bag of just baits and lures/rigging or bobber componets that you need. Works great and saves space and clutter. I wouldnt recommend this approach to all day trips or tourneys though. WHen I fish alone no matter how long I cary my whole box in place of my brother grin.gifgrin.gif

Other than 1 tackle box for stick baits, and a couple for ice fishing I just lump the rest of it together and fish with a basic mess blush.gif

      Well, I have to pay for registration on my boat trailer to run it on the road, and the boat to run it on the lake, why shouldn't wheel houses?  I guess I don't feel bad for the wheel house guys.

      No not yesterday. 2 weeks ago when we had that first cold spell I went out on Baxter, Blue and Long and checked the ice. They were locked up but only had 1-2" inches so didn't venture out too far. Baxter probably was walkable but had open water on the back end so figured I stay off. Last Sunday I went and checked them out after that warm rainy week we had and they had open water, so yesterday I skipped checking them and went farther north. But I did notice most lakes were locked up on the drive up there. Cant wait for the local lakes to get some decent ice!

      Wondering if big sandy is clear enough to spear fish when the ice comes on? Never done it before and would like to give it a try
    • monstermoose78
      Bryan did you check any lakes around me?
    • Bryan P
      Had to scratch the ice fishing itch, so I drove up north to the Mille Lacs lake area and found a smaller lake with 4-5" of ice. Punch a few holes and found some crappies and sunnies. Nothing big but was fun time and a great way to start my ice seaso n! Bring on the ice!  Check out the video: https://youtu.be/BTTv_G07PB8

      Hey, I resemble that remark!!   Plus my wife only went fishing with me once the whole time that we have been married and she brought a book! I got her trained in right away. Sorry about your training problem!
    • leech~~
      Ok but with all those Trout. Bring a tow rope as I may be stuck in the slush!
