      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 .

Best Line for Jigging?

Recommended Posts

I use power pro and fireline... I think the power pro is the better line... Fireline is a brighter color out of the box, but will fade once you use it a bit... so that doesn't seem to be an issue. I use flame green for both, fish don't seem to mind and it is easier to detect strikes..

Both beat the heck out of mono.. the no-stretch properties of these superlines makes them much more sensitive then mono...

yar 32 nailed it flame green fireline for me. I do like the 8 lb a little better just a little more confidence plus with the small diameter it really doesn't matter.

why do you guys say flame green? I use the smoke fire line and love it. give the low down on why you feel the green is better.

Brother-in-law fishes MN. walleye trail does excellent and i know for a fact that you won't catch him fishing anything besides spiderwire braid the twenty doller a spool stuff. His #1 go to is open water jiggin, i haven't switched just because i love to cast alot with my stradic also and that spider wire takes a dump if you cast it as much as i do. good luck

I just like green because it is easier for me to see when I am tying with it. I have always used high vis stuff I used to use trilene solar which also was a bright green. I have a friend that uses the smoke color and he likes it but I find it harder to see which might be a good think in the water since the fish wouldn't be able to see it but I don't really think that it matters that much.

10 lb spiderwire with yo-zuri hybrid leader.

I also agree with Icehawk- Sensation is a solid line for jigging.

I haven't used it yet, but I think the spiderline super mono XXX looks like it has potential.

I like the super lines for verticle jigging.Superior sensitivity and instant hooksets when needed ,and gets you down deep and quickly.You just can't go wrong.I have a rod set up just for jigging so I don't worry about casting.I have another rod set up for pitching jigs.I had the fortune of running into a 10,000 yrd spool of Fenwick Iron Thread in 8lb that is no longer made and thats what I have been using but when I run out(if ever!)I will probably go with spider wire.

6lb dia power pro w/ 6 lb. p-line leader. Snags snap off, and the p-line is also strong & low-stretch.
