      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 .

Planer question???

Recommended Posts

Why do they want to bounce so much? I use a heavy baitcasting rod that won't give to the deepest deep diver.It has to affect how the lure is running doesn't it? Is there a special rod or what? Just tryn to learn something new. Bought the walleye boards with tattle tales by church tackle. Any help is appreciated.

yeah, you do not want too stiff of a rod for pulling boards.. A good medium action 8' to 8'6" with a forgiving tip section is what you should look at.. Lots of good options out there. Personally, I use the Walleye Angler Signature Series rods you find at Bass Pro.

This is for walleye.. Salmon, I use Shimano Talora Board rods, same concept, just a bit more power in the blank for bigger fishes.

Couple more suggestions --- use mono instead of a no-stretch superline, and troll with the waves instead of into them. These will also help give the boards more a surge-pause motion, instead of bouncing wildly and pulling out of the water.
