      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 .

Am i better with an Ugly Stick?

I know that is what they hit Dead head with when he was born -- Just kidding, my Brother.

No -- would the Ugly Stick be a good option for running Raps??

I have a couple of them-- they're Ok for trolling cranks. I also use them for deadsticking northerns with a Baitrunner reel.

Last year one broke-- I called Cabelas and they looked to see that I had bought one 2 yrs before and then sent me a new one. They didn't even want to see the that the old one was really broken.

They're a little hefty, but less so than the fiberglass Ugly Stick I think.

ha ha everyone's a comedian...

what's the point in buying a new rod anyway, if you can't catch any walleyes over 10"?

I don't care who are, now that's funny right there laugh.giftongue.gif

I laughed out loud when I read Hit's post on Dead's plight with the ugly stick. Fun for the whole family is what I say laugh.gif. Whoopin stick, ugly stick, they both are heavy and have NO feel to them. Just spend $50 bucks and find a 7-8 ft rod for trolling, with a soft tip and moderate action. At least with graphite you can feel if the rap is weeded up or not running correct. Just make sure you don't get hit by the "ugly stick" while your back is turned tongue.gif.

Hey, I just realized I hit 1000 posts, it only took 5 years shocked.gif

Sure did, right on Hwy 59. If any of you drive by and see a maroon GMC with a topper parked out front, stop in and say hello. If you're heading to LM Fleet, you can always buy me a few lures if you'd like laugh.gif.

As long as you're visiting Mr Dog, we moved and I now work between L&M and Fisherdog. This way, if he's sneaking out and not reporting, I can rat on him (unless I get to go along!). And I like L&M's lures too if you're giving them away.

a LOT of people come in to pick them up as river rods. At work I always joke around w/ our customers and tell the custemers you could beat someone to death with one, but dont do it, we dont want a lawsuit. I have a buddy whos got one and he uses it all the time. (Contact Us Please) near impossible to break. I have not ever seen one broken.

Much the same as an Ugly Stick in my experience. I don't use them when there are weeds, etc around (prefer graphite so I can easily tell when a lure is fouled), but I do have a couple 8.5-9'ers that I run as outside rods when I'm flatlining to keep them away from the boat a ways.

      use caution on the lakes in southern mn  there is a lot of lakes that have one or 2 spots of open water.  with that said where ive fished there has been a solid 5-6 inches as of yesterday  clear, cedar.cannon,elysian, circle.  i would use a spud bar to check if your going where people havent gone yet.

      Gotta tell ya. I've been doing a lot of thinking about those dusk into the evening crappie bites under the ice lately.

      Please stay off blue it is not good ice! Baxter is the only lake I walked but there is a bad spot out and to the left of the access. Where don’t find it. Stay east on Baxter the west is bad
    • monstermoose78
      Call search and rescue cause someone will go in on blue! It’s bad news out there. Baxter is the only lake around you would catch me on and just stay to away from the west side of the lake.
