      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 .

Any of you musky dudes ever try the Tica baitcasting reels? Looking at their Striper 200LE as a possible cat & sturgeon reel. Just curious of any experiences. I know they make a solid spinning reel that the ice fisherman love, but I would hate to get stuck with a junk reel. Here's the specs:

8 precision stainless steel rust resistant ball bearings.

Forged aluminium alloy spool.

One piece aluminium frame CNC machined.

Instant anti-reverse.

Centrifugal brake system.

Star drag.

Quick remove sideplate.

Line out alarm.

Large ultra wear-resisting line guide.

Forged aluminum alloy handle knob

5.2:1 gear ratio

14.6 oz

Line capacity 14-275/17-210/20-165

Selling for about $120

General consensus I have seen is that they are not a quality product and that the support leaves much to be desired. The guides that pro staffed for them moved on.

Thanks. That's what I was worried about.

without being too frank...they are junk

Much better options out there in that same price range.

Check out the new Okuma line. Induron and Red Isis. I have run 3 of these reels for the last 2 seasons and been pretty happy with the results. A great value at $120.

Thanks, I will check them out. Know of anywhere in the metro area that sells them? I'd like to get my hands on one.

I don't, but I can put you in contact with someone that can tell you if they are stocked in the metro.
