      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 .

Gear ratio for spinner bait fishing

Recommended Posts

It really depends if you are planning on burning a spinner bait or letting it drop to deeper water on a jerky retrieve. A 5 to 6+ to 1 is a pretty fast retrieve for a baitcaster reel.

i still like the faster ratio reels (6.3:1). it is much easier to slow your retrieve speed down than having to reel faster with a lower ratio, when you use some thing that fishes faster such as willow leaf,burning a bait, and picking up the slack with a buzzbait. del

The problem with the faster retrieving reels is you loose power and when you are pulling big blades it can get very tiring very quick. I have Abu C3's (5.3:1) and one C4 (6.3:1),and I find that the C3 works best for burning big blades, and the C4 work awesome for twitch and glide baits when you want to pick up slack as fast as possible.
