      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 .

Fishing Line

Recommended Posts

Last week I was up to one of my favorite haunts to purchase fishing line. Based on past successes I bought 8# MagnaThin Line along with some 6# Fireline. Most of my fishing is for walleyes in rubble and sand bottom lakes using a modified Lindy type rig.My question is what kind of line do you use for leaders and filling the bulk of your spool? There are so many different kinds of line to choose from. I have my best success use as light of line possible which is thin and green with little stretch. I have used Vanish, Sensithin, and Trilene XL. I am very interested in your choices of line and why you think they are the best for you.
I will be very interested in your reasons. Remember most of my fishing is rigging for walleyes. Thank You

The last couple years or so I have had really good success using 10lb Fireline and a snell made from 6lb Vanish.
It is a MUST to use mono as a backing when using Fireline, makes no difference what kind, even old stuff will do. The Fireline needs something to grip onto on the spool. Without the backing it will slip.

I like Fireline. Thin diameter and very strong. I spool my walleye reels with 6lb and 8lb, it seems as if there is 3lb test on there. I still like to stick with mono when I fish for panfish though.
Good Fishing, Matt.
