      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 .

Abu Garcia Reel Problem

Recommended Posts

I have a baitcasting reel by Abu Garcia. I cant remember the model off hand. The problem I am having is if the reel sits for a day or two the drag gets all goofy and doesnt catch and acts like the drag is turned all the way loose. After 3 or for casts the drag resets itself. Anyone have this happen to them before, or have any suggestions.

how old is it? Is the reel stored with the drag tightened? If its an older reel and never has the drag loosened the drag washers could be compressed too much. I loosen the drags on my reels at the end of each trip.

It is 2 years old, and I usually loosen the drag on the reel, If I didnt loosen it all the way I made sure i didnt keep the drag in the same spot all the time. I did use the reel for river fishing from shore quite a bit last year, and thought that maybe some sand or dirt got in the reel.

Might have to just open the reel up and give it a clean. If the drag is an oil type, then a little oil is needed.

I think - Oil type drags, when just sitting around needs a little warm up to get it working.
