      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 .

rod blanks

Recommended Posts

I'm looking to build some rods for personal use, and gifts. There is supposed to be a place in WI where you can buy factory 2nd and slightly defective rod blanks by the bundle. But I can't seem to find the name or location of this place. Does anyone know of this place?

I know there was a place in MN on the St. Croix river that used to do that but their supplier quit selling them the 2nds. It seemed the some folks were buying them and trying to pass them off as firsts and the vendor caught wind of it and figured the would rather burn them rather than have that happen.

But there are few vendors that sell discontinued or 2nds. You could try mudhole.

I have never been disappointed with Cabela's blanks - the plain old plain Jane graphite models are great - cheap and great sensitivity. Had best luck with the 6' jig blanks, and 7' ML action 2 piece spin blanks.
