      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 .

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone has ever used
Tectan monofilament line? normally I use
Stren Magnathin #4lb, I've notice Cabela's been selling it for years out of the catalog
also does anyone know if they sell it out of the store down in Owatonna? or do I have to order it from the catalog,

thanks,

I've been using Tectan mono for a while now and it has worked well for me. It has the smallest diameter of any 2lb line that I could find and has proved to be tough for the diameter.(I'd use 1lb if I could find it)

It comes in a sealed package that will let you keep it for quite a while without oxidizing on the shelf.

definitely
had problems last year with breakage using light trilene line. so a buddy of mine and i went to cabelas and started looking at the nice selection they had. still confoosed as to which way to go a salesman came up to us and started asking Q's. after about a half hour of back and forth we decided to split a package.
about a week later we had split another package for our other reels.
he has stepped up to the big stuff for his cat rod. i have not yet.
no plans to change lines before the first outing. figured we would see what happens.

definitely limp and strong. this is what we wanted for the panfish setups.
