      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 .

ultimate bobber setup

Recommended Posts

What does everyone consider to be their favorite bobber fishing setup?

Right now I am using a 6'6" medium action but plan on buying a 7' ML. I have been using 8 lbs PLine floroclear all year long with good results too.

If you have room in your boat I would consider at least a rod 7' 6" ML to Med action. G. Loomis (HSR 9000).

Cabelas also carries some nice rods.

Price range???

Jason Mitchell's slip float rod would be my pick.

Jason Mitchell Elite Series #JMSS80SB

"This revolutionary eight foot telescoping rod was designed specifically for slip floats. This medium action graphite blank is tied using larger spinning guides so slip float knots aren’t as apt to slide. The rod blank is marked every foot with a white stripe so anglers can quickly set depth by using the rod as a ruler. The length and power of this rod is perfect for slip floats but also can be used as a great dead rod in the rod holder. This rod boasts a high modulus graphite blank with high quality guides and high grade cork handle."

"Kurt Shirado"

MSRP Price: $85.00

I like to use braid on my bobber rig with a 3 foot mono leader. The no strech of the braid makes for better hooksets regardless of the rod used.
