      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 .

Rapala Line

A large national chain store has a ton of Rapala Line on clearance for 1.97 and 2.97 a spool in any weight 4 -14 lbs. Is this stuff any good. Never used the stuff myself, but if someone can tell me that it's good stuff I might have to pick up a bunch.

I have used the rapala line for the past 2 years and have liked it. It seems to have a low memory(for me at least, others may say different) and does not break off as some other lines i have used. How long is the line on sale for, i am going to have to go buy a bunch of it, that price is unbeatable. Email me and let me know what store has it. weatherman_01 at yahoo dot com

I used the 4lb. test Rapala Finesse line and it held up all last season without a line change. Spring trout, crappies, bluegills, etc. Low memory and is the best casting monofilament I ever used. I'd buy a load at that price...

I have used the Rapala Finesse for a both ice fishing and open water and like the low memory it has - especially in the cold. I haven't had any problems with it at all.

hey wishiniwerefishin,
I don't need to email you I'll just tell you. It's a chain with the initials G.M. and I've been in both the Burnsville and Bloomington stores and there is a ton of it on a clearance table. Looks like it's on sale until it's gone.

I think they have two formulas, finesse and tough. I tried some finesse 4# last year ( on clearance) and it broke very easily to the point where I might try tough but would not buy the finesse again

I have used both tough and finesse in summer and in winter. I found the finesse to be a great winter use line and never had any breakoffs with it. I always use a flouro leader as well. It's comparable to Berkley XL with less memory. It's a steal at that price if you ask me.....
