      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 .

Bucktail Rod

Recommended Posts

I have a new Medium Heavy 7' IM8 Gander rod just sitting at my house and haven't decided what to do with it yet.

Its not the oversized Muskie version that has the big eyelets and big handle but its a fairly stiff rod. I'm wondering if I could make that a bucktail rod that could dub as a jig rod for bass fishing, there could be a line weight problem there but we'll see.

Just lookin for some opinions, thanks!

I guess that depends entirely on what you consider a bucktail these days....#5 mepps or a super-duper #13 cowgirl?

Its the Pro Series IM8 1/2 to 3 oz. Handles small bucktails ok but seems a little light to throw say a Hellhound on. That combo will be soon posted in the classifieds since I seldome throw small baits anymore.

Sounds like the same one I have, I still haven't used it so I can always exchange it for something else. Hmmm... The problem is, if I don't use it as a bass rod too, I might need a new reel, which won't be real popular with the lady =)
