      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 .

mono leaders for muskies?

Recommended Posts

I was at Gander Mt looking for some leaders and I came across some 100lb mono leaders for muskie fishing. The package said this leader was better that wire leaders. No ball bearing swivel, just tied, but thought it interesting that mono would be used for a muskie leader, thought it was cool so I bought one, hey, only 4 bucks. Any thoughts? Can you still run bucktails on these?

Hiya -

Guys on Lake St. Clair have run hard mono leaders for muskies for years, and saltwater guys do it all the time for all sorts of stuff. I'd be leery of anything less than 100#, based on my experiences with lighter fluoro, but other than that...

Personally, I'd only use it on something like bucktails rather than something erratic or baits they typically head-hunt like jerkbaits or cranks.

Cheers,

Rob Kimm

Yeah, I have a couple 110 yard packs of 100 lb mono leader material. I have started tying a few up and will probably use them for bucks like RK said. Spinnerbaits would probably be alright on them too if you choose to use one at all with a spinnerbait. I will stick to wire for most other baits.
