      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 .

The newest precision trolling book is what I would get. Pick them up at any of your larger sporting goods stores.

How come they are so darn expensive $50? Are they worth the money?

Because they field test every lure at different variables with a scuba diver in the water to record the depth. Very labor intensive.

Are they worth the money, IMO yes. If you're looking for a cheaper alternative the Rapala line counter is about $15 and comes with a book that has the Rapala Presicion Trolling depth curves in it.

If you only fish the rapala line , they make a tackle box guide with every bait they make for around $5.00. These are very nice, I have one.

Gives a seperate graph for every type of lure and size. Telling you how much line you need out to fish different depths. Easy to use.

Go out to the Rapala web . It's called "tackle box guide"

It's pretty sweet. Mine is 4 yrs old. I may get another one so it would include the minnow raps and anything else. Probably the deep tail dancers.

Sorry I didn't get a chance to check in yesterday. If you still want this, post here again Mon. I'll make copies and figure out a way to get them to you. You don't live far so maybe you could stop by and pick one up.

The new precision trolling pro edition 1.0 is different from the prior version. Has plastic protected cover and water resistant pages. Also has two metal rings that open up so you can add additional pages as they come out with guides for new lures (I think the old version was spiral bound). You can also go to their HSOforum to print out lure pages that are not in the book (extra cost of course).
