      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 .

Overall I just love Fireline Crystal 6lb for almost all my rods. Even though it is '6 Lb' line.. just try breaking it... you can't! I never have fish break the line... unless it's via the teeth!

Hiya -

Braid - Cortland Master Braid on baitcasting, Fireline on spinning

Mono - a real mish-mash depending on what I'm doing:

Cortland Endurance for casting grubs/jigworms for smallies

Triple Fish X-Rated copolymer for carolina rigs, pitching, spinnerbaits

Trilene XT for jigworms, tubes, topwaters

Fluorocarbon - Triple Fish for flipping with fluoro, crankbaits, drop-shotting

Triple Fish X-Rated copolymer is awesome stuff. Very thin diameter and tough as nails.

Cheers,

Rob Kimm

Mono: Trilene XT

Braid: Stren Superbraid

Flouro: Berkely 100% and Triple Fish

I just started using triple fish this spring mainly because of RK's mentioning of it. So far I really like it and for the price you can't go wrong.

I used to use Cabela's Ripcord Si for braid, but I am now switching to Power Pro and Suffix. For my mono it is either XT or XL depending on what I am fishing.

Never heard of Triple Fish?? I will have to look into that

Hiya -

I've been using Triple Fish the last couple of years. Started out using their Fluoro for muskie leaders, then their castable fluoro for bass fishing. It's great stuff.

I think I posted this once before, but Lord knows where or when. So here's the scoop on Triple Fish, and Fluoro in general. Pretty much all the Fluorocarbon in the world is made in one of 3 plants, 2 in Japan, and one in Germany. It's a petroleum byproduct that gets used for all sorts of stuff depending on how it's formulated. All the fluoro for the major line companies other than Triple Fish come from Japan. The fluoro is manufactured, then formed into fishing line somewhere else. Triple Fish is manufactured in Germany, and formed into line at the plant, so it skips a step in the mfg process, which helps keep the cost way down. A 200yd spool of 12# is about 10 bucks. Plus it's just good stuff. I FAR prefer it to Trilene Fluoro frankly.

For the record, I'm not on their pro staff or anything...I just like the line and buy it like everyone else.

Cheers,

Rob Kimm

Hey, you are not alone with the Iron Silk. It is on my pike gear and my topwater skum frog rod. I use it instead of braid.

Looks like I am the only one using Silver Thread though. confusedconfused

Not the only one.

I use AN40, Super, and Excalibur as well. Most consistent line I've ever used, from first thread down to last loop on spool. Also longest shelf life of line as well that I've used.

I also like Gamma and YoZuri Hybrid as well. Both Gamma and YoZuri are stronger than Silverthread but Gamma has more memory and YoZuri is more stiff.

    • LOL I just got checked yesterday and asked him this same question. I asked if i had pagers on each line could I keep them down. He said as the law is written a Rod or rattle wheel is considered a line down and you must be able to visually see the line at all times. Different from a tipup where you must be within the vicinity but you don't need a constant visual on them.   So I'm thinking I may just set up my tip-ups inside my shack with beepers when I'm not in there
    • The CO that checked us on LOW this winter told us if you go out to the bathroom or a smoke it is OK, if you go next door to visit it is a ticket...
    •   Member of ADVRider. Rode with lots of guys on there. I just put out a feeler on here once in a while.
    • You ever check out www.thumpertalk.com Lots of guys in your area.
    • I think that summer one is in the regs, 75 feet as I recall.   
    • I am no expert either but putting my trust in the builder. Talking to him, there will only be enough lumber to screw the sheetrock to. There will be no 16" on center studwalls. He has done several like this with no problems. The "Gurts" are attached to the poles and you could saw the poles off at the bottom and move the whole building.
    • Like Leech said, it appears that a grant in aid trail is running through your area. I would urge you to contact the club president or another representative and try to work out a solution. They may be able to even re-route the trail to avoid your driveway but you will not know unless you engage in a civil discussion with a representative of the club. Just let them know you have concerns and see if an agreement can be had.    I would be surprised if the club doesn't have a landowners event every fall that you could attend and talk to club members as well to keep reminding them each year of your concerns.
    • Forgot this was a day game, missed it but happy we got the two points. We have been holding our spots and even have some games in hand on some other teams. If we can just keep this pace up we are in, but here is hoping we get hot towards the end of the year. Would be nice for a change. 
    • Nice win this afternoon on the road...things are getting interesting....need others to keep stumbling and we may not have to worry about a Wild Card.
    • That's the problem in restrictor plate races--stay on the gas and hit the car in front or lift and be hit from behind.
