      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 .

What mono's flouresce under black light?

Recommended Posts

I picked up a little black light that will run on 12v dc. The problem is, none of the lines I have on my poles flouresce under the light. Was I misguided, or are there types that do? I think I got the idea from a fishing show where they were nighttime catting. Their lines looked like they were on fire! The day-glo-orange on my slip bobbers did light up nicely, so I know that the light is working. Thanks for any input.

INTERESTING! MAY I ASK WHERE YOU PICKED UP THE BLACK LIGHT, COST, ETC. AFTER READING YOUR POST I WENT INTO THE GRANDSONS ROOM AND CHECKED SOME LINE I HAD. (OLD STUFF) THE SIGMA-SHAKESPEARE CLEAR BLUE FLUORESCENT AND THE TRILENE ADVANCED PHOTOCHROMATIC PICKED UP THE UV. GEEZ.....I WONDER HOW MUCH OF THAT THE FISH CAN SEE? ANYONE? I'D RUN A GOOD TEN FOOT LEADER WHEN USING THIS LINE. COURSE, I HAVE ONLY USED THIS STUFF(BOUGHT OLD SERVICE SPOOLS)FOR SHOOTING A LINE OVER A HIGH-UP TREE BRANCH TO PULL A ROPE UP FOR DEER HUNTING,ETC. "NEON LIGHTS"

TALKOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

I've seen larger, dual tube lights at Galyan's for about $40.00, but the other day I was at "the Party Store" in Bloomington looking for halloween ideas and they had little ones there with a cigarette lighter plug for about $10.00. I always wanted to try it and I figured the price was right...

Bear, can't give you the specific's but yes there is a line made that glows under a black light. My buddy lost one eye last fall and he can barely see out of the good one. He ordered the line that "glows" under the black light, he got a small black light flashlight and head light. Man that stuff is awesome!! I think he was using 6lb stuff and at night he hits the light and it looks like the diameter of about 30 lb test. From what I could tell it made no difference to the fish, he actually out fished me but that's not saying much! LOL. It's a great combination for him to see his line in low light or dark times. Hope this helps. I'll ask about the specific's when I see him next but I'll be away from the comp. until Mon. or so. Good Luck.

Several companies produce Fluorescent Mono line. Fluorescent Clear Blue is the most common formula and Trilene and Stren lead the way in those.

Trilene XL® Fluorescent Clear Blue 2-30 pound test.

Trilene Big Game® Fluorescent Clear Blue 12,15,20,25,& 30 pound test.

SIGMA, ANDIE'S, P-Line and a few others also make Fluorescent lines.

A good Black light system is made by a company called Optronics Inc. www.optronicsinc.com
