      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 .

Line class record?

Recommended Posts

I dont have the answer to your question, but I believe all line class records are for weight and not length. So unless you weighed it officially I dont think it would qualify regardless.

Here is some information I found regarding reporting a record, but nothing about what the current records are:

Captian is right,

You needed to weigh it on a cert. scale, we found this out earlier this year on a 51.5" caught on 6# line. I guess a guy up on rainy caught a 57" on 8# mono.

Nice catch anyway.

Ooooh Muskie Guys never want to here certified scale and 52"er in the same sentence. But I can tell you that your fish will be a ways away from any records. Walleye and Bass guys catch some pretty big Muskies.

Nice fish none the less. If you did keep it, next time please consider a graphite replica. They are better than a live mount in my oppinion and the fish gets to swim away for another day.

Yeah I don't think it would be a record. I know that one of my DNR friends caught a 55 1/2" fish on mille lacs smallmouth fishing with 8# test. It happens more frequently than you think. You would be supprised on how many are caught on 4# crappie fishing or ice fishing.

Nice fish either way. A real trophy either way.

Any body remember the show walkers cay chronicles a few years back that dude has cost me more tackle and nice fish than I've hooked in my whole life.But I'm hooked on ultra light rods,4 lb or 6 lb line,and learning my drag.20 and 21 in smallies,29 inch walleye 2 weeks ago caught and released,50 in musky to the side of my boat on eagle I don't need to boat them and take pictures to get joy that would mean my ugly mug in a photo and no one needs to see that.My slot for walleye is 14 to 18 so I am not worried about a meal from time to time.Going to Florida in Feb to try for Tarpon on fly rob that was my fav show of his wanna share gas?

You dont hear too much about the line class record with musky. Most of us use "rope". It is way too hard on the fish targeting them with light tackle resulting dead fish, vene if they swim off. There are the incidental catches however. Alot of eye guys catch monster eyes. I think many of them are caught out of muskie season. At least the monsters I have seen. IMO the record will fall to an eye guy as most musky guys wouldnt thump a fish.
