      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 .

St. Croix rods

Recommended Posts

Well, I was fishing the LETS tourney on prior today, and was casting a lipless along a point. My lure ticks the weeds, and gets caught on a weed, so, as always, I pull, not very hard, and snap! My favorite rod, my st. croix med act spinner snaps in two after only seeing 2 fishing seasons. Whats the deal with that? Aren't these supposed to be high quality? And of course, I no longer have the receipt from galyans. Dam.

St. Croix rods are very high quality and shouldn't break that easy. What you need to do is contact St. Croix. Look for their phone number on their HSOforum. If you send it to them they will replace it for a nominal fee.

Welcome to the world of high end fishing rods. Higher modulus (more expesive) graphite tends to be more brittle, thus more breakage, even from a nick that may have happened earlier that you never even knew happened. Keep your reciepts, althoug hmost dealers don't do warrenty replacment, it's good to have for warrenty info. Expect to send rods in for replacment/service. I have 4 or 5 st. croix's that get fished hard and not babied, several have been back to st. croix more than once. !0 bucks and a couple of weeks should see the rod back in your hands, I've always had excellent results with thier service dept. On the plus side, you get to fish with a much nicer piece of equipment, and the down time should help you convince your wife that you need another for backup.

Yea, called them this morning, gonna send it in with 10 bucks and get a new top half(2 piece rod) They are nice, and I really like the rod, but it was startling and frustrating when it snapped.

    • Yes, we buy the spray cans of olive oil,canola or whatever. I personally haven't tried fish but with breaded chicken I'm not a big fan. It works great when I make wings and non battered chicken. Just my personal experience.
    • That is a thing of beauty. I am speechless and if you know me........
    • Those are cool but I enjoy the amount of water that mixes with my whiskey when I put 2 or 3 cubes of ice in it.
    • That's why my wife is getting one for Winter Solstice too!
    • Milton’s put 1/8 on your house? Was that the new owner? Mines Miltona, 4 years old and came with either 1/4 or 5/16, not 100% sure but it wasn’t 1/8. 
    • I get what Del is saying to a certain extent. I would never buy a bottle of Pappy for $2000. There's no way that any whiskey can taste 40-50 times better than a $30-$50 bottle. I actually rarely buy anything over $35/bottle but that's just me being cheap. I do like to try the $50 stuff but have rarely found anything that I like better than Eagle Rare, Buffalo Trace or Maker's Mark. Actually one of my favorite Bourbon's is Jim Beam Black for only about $25 a bottle. That being said I couldn't care less what other people drink or what they pay for their whiskey, beer, wine or whatever. If you have a job and make your own money, buy and drink what you want. I don't know if that's true or not but I sometimes wonder the same thing about all the people who claim to like really hoppy beers.
    • Between the frig and stove its only about 2 steps    My kinda program !!!
    • like any addiction..........there are the 12 steps!!!!!!!!!!
    • awe............a Christmas present for the wife................so you can use it!!!! I see!!!!!!!!!LOL!!!!!!
    • Whatever gets you though the night.  If it makes you feel superior to drink expensive whiskey then by all means do so.
