      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 .

Wire size/type used in bottom bouncers?

Recommended Posts

I'd like to make some modified bottom bouncers but I can't seem to figure out what size/type of wire is used for bottom bouncers. Specifically I want to make a bottom bouncer where I can change the weight by attaching a tear drop type weight to a swivel. It won't bounce on the bottom so much as allow my weight and snell not to get tangled.

stainless steel .035 -.045 is used, .040 is most common. it's not like ''life or death'' the same be used though. you can buy preformed bouncer wire at mills fleet farm in packs of, i think, 25 for about 5 bucks. comes with a snap and swivel attached and you can just modify from there. if you insist on making your own they have coils there too of torsion straightened leader wire near the downrigging supplies in that diameter range (the bigger of the two choices is .040 if memory serves but has a gauge number not decimal). good luck.
