      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 .

Catch Cover rattlesnake rattle reels

Recommended Posts

Was thinking about getting some rattlesnake rattle reels and maybe even their multi-flex rod holders.   Are the rattle reels worth getting ?  Pro's - Con's ?.  I like the idea of being able to replace the rattle reel with the rod holder.

Catch cover is great to work with. Lifetime warranty. If it breaks send it in and they replace it. I had an old rattlesnake that broke and they replaced it with the new improved one for free. I bought 3 rattle snake and 3 multi flex holders for the ice castle haven't used them yet but the quality and build seem to be very solid, and I look forward to using them. 

If any of you want I think I have a coupon they sent me from buying stuff that will take like $10 or so off your order.

Any idea what they improved upon?   If you hadn't used them yet and one broke or did it come broken from shipping ?   I thought I read somewhere that the line can get wrapped around the outside of the reel - is this what they improved ?

They work very well, as long as you don't kick them off or step on them. I think they are second best to lindell's but very close in quality and smoothness.

I had use the old rattle snake before, jut not the new designed ones. I hear the new ones are better for setting the pressure. The old rattle snake rattle wheel I had had a c clamp on the end for use in the portable that you ran off a tube. To adjust pressure on the rattle wheel there was a plastic pin. Now they made it so it is a metal butterfly nut. Much better design. The reason my old one broke was due to the yellow neck snapping. It was in my portable tub and must have got out of its basket and it was tumbling & crashing around in the tube with a 50lb jiffy model 30 while being pulled with a 4 wheeler on pretty ruff terrain.

Lake mary is known in the summer for northern and walleyes.  Some of the lakes around Phoenix have some big slabs and also stripper which will start to run soon.  The northern and walleyes are catch and release or kill and take immediately as they are non native and eat the trout.
