      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 .

just wondering if anyone knows how many inches per crank on a 7000ihsn or were you can find this info for abu reels

A call to ABU customer service will get you the "official" answer. However, it's nearly impossible, or almost meaningless, to describe reel performance via "inches per crank". Retrieve rate specifics will be greatly affected by spool diameter/circumference. More line on a spool equals greater spool diameter, which equals more inches retrieved per spool revolution. Smaller spool diameter equals a lower rate of retrieve. Your "inches per crank" rates are always smallest at the start of your retrieve, and always largest toward the end. Likewise, the amount of line you're retrieving is always changing. IMHO: Put as much line on your ABU as your comfort zone allows, and pay more attention to gear ratios than "inches per crank".

I agree completely with Chief. Gear ratio is what you are looking for not a variable stat. Ever since people started using Trinidads, which advertise 48 inches per crank, that seems to be the info people are looking for. However, it is still incredibly variable. But if you want a more definitive answer, we tried to measure it last year to compare to a Trinidad TN 12. A full 7000i Pro Rocket. Both were spooled with White 100# Tuf-line Plus. The Abu picked up about 32 inches per crank - If I remember correctly.

It's relative to how full the spool is and at what point in the retrieve you're at.

Saltist 50? Their 40 model does 48 inches per crank at full capacity, 30 and 20 do less and are physically smaller than the 40 or a 7000.

And which trinidad is uncomfortable? There are at least 3 model's/sizes all with different line pickup rates. The 16N is the big one, about the same size as a saltist 40 or a 7000, might be a tad larger.

jred sry bout the 50 had the revo stuck in my head comparing to the saltist 30 i tried the 16n last year and didn't like it it just felt akward might not have been all the real was on a freinds rod which is a 8' okuma the handle seems to be thicker on this as well I already have a 7000 was given to me and its not exceptionally comfortable either but i make do it was free.

Saltist 30TH (tall/Narrow)is the most like the Trinidad for burning. I feel it helps to have a longer rod with the high speed...minimum 8'6" otherwise I feel like I'm fighting the rod and tougher to keep the lure in the water, figure 8's etc.

    • Well so much for the big storm around here. 
    • That's what it's all about right there. Father and son making memories.
    • When you sum up a season with those pictures, it’s hard for the Frozen Chosen to agree you had a terrible one.    VERY nice.   I can understand though, not getting to enjoy what’s there is almost worse than not having it at all!
    •   Don’t have find my phone turned on or whatever your particular phone’s location service is and your photos shouldn’t be geo tagged.   Sometimes when I get geo tagged text pics from others, I let them know.    I agree with Eyeguy, we’ve slanted just about every fish catching possibility our way and the internet forums are just another one of those tools.  But like a flasher for ice fishing, we’d hate to be without em anymore.  Everybody wants to know what’s going on.   But yeah, being careful with sensitive resources probably has led to less chat about specific lakes unless they’re the ones already being advertised on billboards.
    • A good way to wreck a lake is to put out "there is a hot bite" out on the internet.
    • Ufatz, Rockport is rebuilding, but they have a looooong ways to go. That’s actually what took up a good portion of my season this year. Lotsa people still need help, and it just didn’t seem right to be out chasing ducks when I could be helping people rebuild their lives. They’ll still be there next year Yes there’s still clouds of redheads. They’re too easy to kill. Problem was, those puddles love to hang out in the shallow marshes, and with the lowest tide I’ve ever seen, they were dry all week. Makes hunting real tough cuz they spread out in the big bays and it’s real hard to narrow down any concentration of birds
    • Do big bunches of redheads still hang out in the basin right in Rockport?:)   And how is poor Rockport looking these days? It really took a beating from the big storm. Didn't ever get around to hunting the area but spent two or three winters there a few years back. Lots of good fishing and pleasant weather most of the time. BUT it can get chilly!! Glad you had fun; it's always nice to see flocks of ducks even if you don't actually get a shot at them.
    • info speed, electronics, titanium spring bobbers, custom rods, inline reels, faster augers, plastic baits, sharper hooks.  fish dont stand a chance.   Speed of info probably the biggest factor. Pics on sites are great but cant share specific location or even the lake unless its a beast of a lake. I just heard last week that sometimes cell phone pics can be investigated to find gps location if a guy is knowledgeable in how to do it. Blurr out the background might not work before long. I think these type sites can still be good for tips but gotta be careful with location info. 
    • I had same challange. Went with a 12v temperature relay switch. Heater/Fans in my DIY wheelhouse now functions just like my home or RV forced air furnance. It comes with a small heat sensing probe i mounted on my upper air duct than set the on/off temperature so fans runs/stops when heat kicks on/off. Provides perfect comfort for $15.00. https://www.walmart.com/ip/bayite-DC-12V-Fahrenheit-Digital-Temperature-Controller-10A-1-Relay-with-Sensor/585224840?wmlspartner=wlpa&selectedSellerId=12524&adid=22222222227093022211&wmlspartner=wmtlabs&wl0=&wl1=g&wl2=t&wl3=213210114658&wl4=pla-345493512458&wl5=9019533&wl6=&wl7=9019476&wl8=&wl9=pla&wl10=117430032&wl11=online&wl12=585224840&wl13=&veh=sem   Sensor under foil tape   Took photo when furnace was off. Temp range -40 to 230 f. Spare probe to right of controller, copper tube is thermostat, black button is pilot iginter.   Total set up with 4 speed auto fan switch.
