      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 .

leadcore questions!

Recommended Posts

CTSH, Leadcore has color coated line so a line counter is not a necessity, but it is a plus if you get one, especiallyfor suspended fish. I use a Shakespeare Tidewater with line counter on a 7 foot medium power/medium action rod. The leadcore has no stretch so a mono leader 7-10 foot is essential. Leadcore is coated so you won't need to seat your reel with anything. I run 17lb and it works great. The heavier the test the thicker the line so keep this in mind when looking at a reel. I can get a whole roll of 17lb leadcore on the bigger Tidewater reel. Hope this helps.

Quick question!

Is it important to have a line counter reel when fishing with leadcore? Also, do you put some type of backing on the reel before you spool up the leadcore? Which lb leadcore is most applicable to pulling craks 18lb? Thanks in advance!!!

I use a 7-10 foot 10lb trilene xl or xt leader in green for Mille Lacs. The mono has the stretch you will need when connecting with a fish. Flourocarbon has minimal stretch so I wouldn't recommend it on this setup unless you have a soft rod to take the shock. This isn't finesse fishing here. I work leadcore up to 15 feet down to 35. What's nice is you can put any type crankbait on and put it where you need it as long as you have your trolling speed in check.
Mills carries the Tidewater reels for $40 bucks. Nice reel for the price.
