      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 .

new for '07 baits

Has anybody that picked up some new lures for 07 noticed higher catch rates specifically of the newer rapalas. I bought some xraps and the new shad raps and have caught more eyes and been bit off more times than I can remember in the south metro. Especially in the 6-16 FOW range. None of my old reliable has worked... yet anyway

The X-raps are awesome. Totally better then the original husky jerk. I hate to lose an X-rap in the waters though cause their expensive.

For me it has been X-raps, husky jerks, gulp plastics for Walleyes.

My old ones did better than the new ones,...,maybe I haven't quite figure out the nuance of the new ones yet.

the slower the retrieve the better. Baits seem to move more and trigger response. Plus they will go deep if required. Especially with all the traffic lately on the lakes they are really taking time to look at em. Lot of one hook lands and lost fish from the soft hits on back trebles. But all day long on natural colors. Best year so far since I moved to cities... is it the Fish or the lures???? both??? who cares lots of fun

I have found days where bass will only "nip" at an X-rap, but will crush a husky jerk. If you are getting the light bites, then switch to the other and watch what happens. I have found this to be the case with smallmouth in particular.

I had success on the opener trolling for pike using the new rapala minnow raps and x-raps while my father was husky jerks and other similar cranks with much less success. I would say the new rapalas are worth the $$.
