      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 .

Limit Creek rod question

Recommended Posts

I've been thinking about getting a couple of Limit Creek casting rods (LCC66MHF) for walleye trolling. Anyone use these and what about planer boards with them? Do they have enough back bone for something like that?

Thanks in advance!!!

I would go longer. I like 7'6" to 8'6" rods for boards and have gone mostly to telescoping rods for storage purposes. Gander Mountain has a nice board rod for a good price and a over the counter return policy.

Im sure limit creek has some longer trolling rods. Ill check them out.

I have two and love them. Use them for trolling all the time. One has a line counter with Leadcore on it and the other a line counter with power pro. Quite simply a great rod for trolling. I don't use planer's but I'm sure they would work out great. Turk is a great guide and heck of a guy. Just another reason I llike to buy is rods, but you are getting a great quality rod at the same time. The only long rod they make is a medium light, don't know if that would work or not for planer but that is a great rod as well and the next one I'm adding to my assortment. I also have a smoothie and love that rod.

Thanks Northlander and Sandmannd and as for a longer rod, that'll have to wait. (At least that's what my wife says and she's in charge of the money.) From what I've heard, these are pretty nice rods and the price is right too.

If you want a longer rod for trolling, there are many much cheaper options, great sensetivity is not a necessity, when using superlines you can still see the rod tip vibrate, and when the rod bends over, you have a fish...

I just purchased a 8' Mr. Walleye Trolling rod and a Daiwa line counter for under $100...

Limit Creek does have an 8ft 6" telescoping rod that is perfect for rigging - I use it all the time. I don't pull boards though. Go to Turk's HSOforum and ask him for his suggestions via email. He's a great guy.

Yep, that's gonna be my next one. Been with Walli1 when he uses it and it's a great rod.

These are spinning rods though right? I think they would be light for pulling boards and I dont like spinning reals for trolling boards.

    • Wow.....6th win of the season and it gets called ugly.......J/K. Getting down to the last few races and we have a pretty good battle going on for the top spot. I know I’m about out of decent picks left but we’ll see what happens. Good luck everybody 
    • Watched a nice 8 or 10 chase a doe back and forth for 45 min on Monday night. He checked her several times but she didn’t want anything to do with him. Few scrapes then showed up that night as well. About an hour north of the cities. 
    • Sorry but $200 seems pretty high for that thing to me. Thousands of less expensive alternatives.
    • Looks like a great project.  A DYI froth pak for $500 or so will do 12 sq ft at 1" thick.  Most home improvement stores carry these.  
    • I got a set of FXR FLoating bibs on clearance from the place in Rush City that goes along with my jacket I bought last year. It is really warm and lite.

    • Last weekend I switched out my ramp door for a bay window.  I'd like to spray foam it, but I'm sure I won't be able to find anyone willing to do it professionally in my area, at least not at a reasonable price.  Last winter I had to drive an hour and a half to get the rest of it spray foamed for about $2000.  One company told me they wouldn't fire up their equipment for less than 1800. For this small of an area I'm thinking I would be just fine with the foam boards @ 2-3/4" thick with the furring.  Otherwise, does anyone know how well those Menards Froth Packs work?  $360 still seems kind of spendy to spray foam that little area myself.  
    • That's awesome. I gave mine a test last night and they weren't bright enough. I might have to order some bright lights from Amazon. 
    • Looking good! I also wanted reverse lights. I used some of the really bright light bars from Amazon on mine.  
    • I would fur it out another inch, then spray foam and finish to the furring strips.  No vapor barrier needed at that point.
