      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 .

Sure you can, but (in my experiences with FIRELINE) it's no good for use with slip bobbers...the line seems to catch and really slow the fall of the jig or just stop it completely. Unless I have a fairly good size jig on, or extra sinkers, I use mono when using a slip bobber. Keep in mind, I'm talking about when it's been casted out a ways...close in, it's not as bad.

Normal "stationary" bobbers go good with what ever line you want to use.

That's my 2 Cents.

Works just fine on my slip bobber rig (10 lb Stren Superbraid). Doesn't take a very big split shot to get it working, and with the right size bobber it'll never have problems during the cast.

I use FireLine exclusively for slip floats. I like the fact that it floats so I can judge my slack in a glance. I use a quality float so that there's no problem with the line catching. I also use at least 14# so that the line thickness will reduce bobber stop slippage. And I always use a snell and a swivel. It's less visible and if you get snagged you can break it free and be re-rig in seconds.

I like using braid with floats for eyes and pike. It helps that the line floats and you can keep control of your slack. It works for panfish, but make sure you use a small diameter. Try a smoother line than fireline or power pro too. I like 6lb sufix braid.
