      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 .

Side Planers: In-Line or Mast type?

Recommended Posts

Howdy All...

Let's talk side planers!! Which do you prefer, the kind that clips on your line or the type run on it's own line from a mast?

I have a set of in-line boards that work fairly well. But on way way home from the lake today, I stopped at a garage sale and found a planer board mast being "thrown out". There were no boards to be had, but there were two releases clipped to the lines. So a five spot later, it was going home with me. The releases alone are worth that much. Anyway, do you think it's worth the extra cash to pick up a couple of the larger, mast type boards? If so, what do you recommend?

Thanks......Dan

(Note: Storage space is not an issue here. My ProV has plenty to spare.)

I prefer the mast planers myself where you just put them out, attach a release to the lines and go. So much easier in my opinion, but then again you have to haul all the stuff and store it in the boat. I built my own side planers out of scrap wood (2 boards bolted together w/ long bolts and off-set to pull to the right or left.) They work slick.

The in-line planers always seem to frustrate me and I have a hard time running them in rougher water. Then reeling in a fish is an issue fighting a fish with the planer attached to the line.
