      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 line 2 use?

Recommended Posts

Ok. I settled on a rod for my line counter reel. I got the St.Croix 7' med. glass. I plan on using this combo for trolling cranks. What line should I use? Lead core? let me know what you think. Thanks.

I have been using 14# Fireline for a number of years for pulling cranks. I have considered switching to Power Pro but its hard to teach this old dog any new tricks! Go with a thin braid you have confidence in, they work great with the moderate action glass rods, such as your new one. You should pick up a Precision Trolling Guide also {6th ed.} if you do not have one already, get one you will love it. Couple hundred assorted crankbaits and your in the business!!!

Like D-man, last year I used 8/12 fusion and it worked well for me. This year I am trying the power pro 6/20. I tryed the power pro a couple of weeks ago on a lake in Iowa bass fishing and I had a problem with it geting knots in it. I also don't believe it really is a 6 lb diameter, it feels more like 8 lb. It does seem extremely strong though. The smaller the diameter the deeper the lure will run. Good luck.
