      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 .

Sufix Braid

Recommended Posts

I know most of us Catter's prefer PP. I personal love PP as well. But some other folks I know, "bass/muskie" fisherman have been ranting bout Sufix braid. They say it had better abrasion resistance then PP. So I figure it can't hurt to try a spool.

Just wondering if anyone else has tried using it and what are your thoughts on it?

I've been wanting to try it, but when you got something (PP)that is working well... why change?

I know Larry Dahlberg (Hunt for Big Fish) uses Sufix and with the fish he catches, he wouldn't use something he didn't trust.

I say give it a shot, let us know how it works out.

That's what has been holding me back for a while now. But since so many others has tried and liked it, I figure I could give it a shot. Even though they are only using it for roughfish. LOL!

It resists line digging, resists fray/fluffing, and doesn't bleed like any of the other stuff, a very consistent line, plus isn't super expensive like some premium braid line. Makes it very good value.

Better than power pro for abrasion. Actually better than PP all around. You won't buy anymore PP once you use sufix

I think PP might have been a victim of their own success. The demand was high and the quality may have dropped.

I’ve heard others who’ve had it break “for no reason”, but I have yet to have this happen nor seen it happen to anyone else.

I have had it break when fishing near rocks or sharp objects as part of the underwater structure. That’s just part of the game, much like fishing near snags, you will get hung up and have to break off.

I guess I would like to see an unbiased abrasion test of the leading braid manufacturers before I could conclude that one was better than the other.

Much like the gear and tactics we use, I say use whatever you feel confident and comfortable with.

Says it all. We use #65. You run the lines through your fingers and the tightness of the braiding on Suffix makes PP feel line a homemaid braided rope.

    • I am ready except it looks like it’s going to be warm and buggy.
    • My buddy does the same always revs the four wheeler up before he leaves. On his sits he would have someone else drive him in bait while he gets in the stand they rev the four wheeler and take off. Dinner bell come and get it
    • No clue yet somewhere with a cheap motel and some public land
    • Who's ready for the season? Cant wait!
    • After a while we only started hunting evening because we never had any come in the AM. We also started making a bit of noise when baiting (rattling cans) when we had two Bears working. They started coming in right after we baited so the bait, after noon and stay behind hunter seemed to work pretty well.
    • sorta helps, I'll find it...  thanks... me and google just got it.....     have to go see!!
    • Hall of Fame? You must be joking...... Every player starts out like that. No one starts out with a 23 m dollar contract. He still averaged about 15 million per year for his career, that average probably goes up if he plays past 2018. I think he will be ok.
    • Joe was also the 74th highest paid player the year he won the MVP. You may say he is over paid now but he was underpaid 1st half of his career. @Bobby Bass   I don't think Joe is a future Hall of Famer, not even close to borderline but a great player none the less. I think if the Twins would have made a deeper playoff runs back when Morneau was healthy and Santana was Cy-young would have helped. But Joes playoff numbers are terrible. I could maybe see HOF if he would have stayed at catcher his entire career though..... But he will more than likely end up winning a gold glove at 2 positions, and with one being catcher that is pretty elite.
    • Big Dave most if not all pro contracts are paying you for what you have already done with the hope that you will continue to produce. Looking at todays contract Joe's is not to out of line for a future Hall of Famer
    • Great! He is finally earning a contract close to what he is being paid.
