      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 .

I have green braided Power Pro fishing line on my reel. Will this work for fishing these waters, or do I have to go to a mono or fluorocarbon for better results?

Anyone?

It all depends on what type of fishing your going to do. In my experience super lines work great for Lake Superior fishing - especially for trolling or deep water jigging(I also use them for casting). I have gone to the lighter colored crystal and use flourocarbon leader at least three feet. I guess the only place I wouldn't use it is drifting spawn in the river

Yup,Dave hit on it right. Superlines work well, and now even better with Fireline Crystal... If you have a moss or green colored line, just add a leader using a back to back uni-knot with some mono or fluoro.

Thanks guys. I was ready to respool 4 reels with 20 to 25 lb mono, now I'll just add mono or fluorcarbon leaders.

All of my superlines are green and I plan on trolling some rapalas in the shallows then go deeper with dipsy divers.

I've been running 8lb Fireline with a 10' leader. Seems to be working. Got to have that leader, so that when you snag up, the line will break before your rod. I've donated a few lures to the lake. As far getting deeper I get down 20-25' with tail dancers at 200' out. Trolling is all I have been able to do there lately be cause of the wind. Good luck.
