      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 .

3000 Series Shimanos

Recommended Posts

All the new Shimano spinning reel series are now coming out with a 3000 model. A great fit for a lot of bass situations in my opinion. A great dock reel as well as jigging. They have the larger handle too. The new Symetre and Sahara are very nice and for the price they are excellent reels. Once you jump up to the Stradic you get the HEG gearing, some cool stuff.

I've been very pleased with the new addition of the 3000 series of the line-up of Shimano spinning reels. Looks like they're thinking about us bass guys smile

I went with the Saros 3000 instaead of my usual 2500 just to get the larger handle. Love the new handle design over what is on the 2500.

All the new Shimanos will have a 3000 series, at least everything from Sahara on up so far...

We have the new Sahara, Symetre, Saros, Stradic, Stradic MG, Sustain and Stella at Thorne Bros...

I think you will be very impressed even with the new Sahara, a big step up in my opinion...

The new Shimano Curado and Citica have not been released to the stores yet. We were told sometime in September or October...

We have a lot of the new Abu's in-stock. All the Revo's and soon we'll have the new Toro...

The only Quantum we carry are the Energy and PT Tourny Burners...

No Pfluegers...

What ever happened to the "quick fire" feature on spinning reels? I see Shimano doesn't offer it on most models any more.

I know there are issues with hook sets if you are careful since the reel will rotate backwards until it reaches the top position, but they are great for casting.

WIWF- They still offer that option on quite a few models. The Spirex is the top of the line with that feature. While Shimano sells quite a few with the quickfire, more people prefer the instant anti reverse.. and unfortunatly you cant have both...

    • My buddy does the same always revs the four wheeler up before he leaves. On his sits he would have someone else drive him in bait while he gets in the stand they rev the four wheeler and take off. Dinner bell come and get it
    • No clue yet somewhere with a cheap motel and some public land
    • Who's ready for the season? Cant wait!
    • After a while we only started hunting evening because we never had any come in the AM. We also started making a bit of noise when baiting (rattling cans) when we had two Bears working. They started coming in right after we baited so the bait, after noon and stay behind hunter seemed to work pretty well.
    • sorta helps, I'll find it...  thanks... me and google just got it.....     have to go see!!
    • Hall of Fame? You must be joking...... Every player starts out like that. No one starts out with a 23 m dollar contract. He still averaged about 15 million per year for his career, that average probably goes up if he plays past 2018. I think he will be ok.
    • Joe was also the 74th highest paid player the year he won the MVP. You may say he is over paid now but he was underpaid 1st half of his career. @Bobby Bass   I don't think Joe is a future Hall of Famer, not even close to borderline but a great player none the less. I think if the Twins would have made a deeper playoff runs back when Morneau was healthy and Santana was Cy-young would have helped. But Joes playoff numbers are terrible. I could maybe see HOF if he would have stayed at catcher his entire career though..... But he will more than likely end up winning a gold glove at 2 positions, and with one being catcher that is pretty elite.
    • Big Dave most if not all pro contracts are paying you for what you have already done with the hope that you will continue to produce. Looking at todays contract Joe's is not to out of line for a future Hall of Famer
    • Great! He is finally earning a contract close to what he is being paid.
