      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.

Yes it's a spinning and no I don't think it would be good for pulling boards.

    • Anyone here make their own wine?    I have been doing a little research on the process and plan to give it a shot this year. One of our favorite wines is Redass Rhubarb from Hill City SD and we like other fruit wines. My wife likes anything fruity and sweet. It may take me a while to dial in a few internet recipes to something we like but that's part of the fun.   I think I would try making some now but I think I would have to turn up our thermostat to get through the fermentation. It appears that a temp of 70-75 is necessary and our house is usually 62-68 this time of the year.
    •   I think that's exactly what I should have done. It would have probably reached me sooner. 
    • I'm thinking of selling my IceGator and going with the Strikemaster. Looking at the Strikemaster, it is not as bulky and heavy. The IceGator does cut ice like butter, especially with a Strikemaster 224 bit!
    •   The default temp is 360 for the NuWave 36001 Brio I mentioned above, but it can be programmed as high as 390. I absolutely agree that it does make a difference for certain things to get those extra 30-40 degrees.
    • yes i did i messaged him directly outside of the post
    • Looks like the Hawks might be without Crawford the rest of the season.   http://nhl.nbcsports.com/2018/01/16/report-blackhawks-concerned-crawford-could-miss-remainder-of-season/
    • We use a line voltage thermostat, with it set in the "cool" position.  Once it hits the set temp the thermostat kicks the fan on, until it gets below the set point.  Works pretty well.  
    • Strange I received our notification for WI yesterday but the page does not show any update. Either way WI permits are out. Already planning and getting blinds ready for this spring    
    • I have not used one, but they have attracted my attention. I have a wheelhouse but think this would be a better early ice option. Surprised at how pricey they are, but aluminum must be spendy! I think your ability to pull with the snowmobile will vary with snow depth, slushy conditions etc..... Studs will probably be helpful?  If you go that route, report back how it works!
    • I finally used it I was just testing it out getting the feel of things so didn't follow a recipe just cut up some Yukon gold potatoes zucchini onion and threw in a bunch of chicken breast. 1 can of cream of chicken and 2 cups of beer. Actual cook time after pressurized 12 mins. Some of the most tender chicken I have ever had.   Next day I made some jasmine rice and cubed some chicken breast and coated with sesame chicken sauce. Didn't think the sauce would steam good on its own so I put half cup of water as well. Then drained liquid when itt was done cooking and tossed them in more sauce before eating.   All in all I like it so far pretty easy stuff.
