      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 .

Fish Line

Recommended Posts

I want to hear recommendations for fishing line.

Specifically for open water fishing during freezing temperatures from 20-35 degrees. I will be trolling spinners. 6 lb test is desired, could drop to 4#

I'm worried about line twist the most. I obviously intend to use a single swivel, but have contemplated a swivel/leader/swivel combination as well.

Also, is there an internal search anymore? I can't seem to find it.

Thanks in advance.

There is an internal search, it's at the top of every thread. Right between FAQ and Active Topics.

I like Gamma Copolymer and P-Line Flouro Ice. Those are just about the only lines I use ice fishing and both would work great for rigging in cold water too. Lots of guys on this board use and recommend those lines.

All 4# tested.

I like Silverthread, any brand. I have not use the AN40 for ice fishing so that may not work. However both Super and Xcaliber lines have proven to be very reliable. That's a bulk spool on the Xcaliber of over ten years on the shelf.

I used both Gamma and Yozuri open water lines for ice fishing all of last year and while the Yozuri is more stiff normally it wasn't as prone to cold coil memory as the Gamma after a prestretch. I was not able to get some Gamma Ice line in 4# so I did not have that to compare.
