      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 .

St Croix Spring Bobber

Recommended Posts

I know this has been posted before, but I cant seem to find it....

How are you guys converting regular rods to accomodate the St. Croix legend spring bobber. I know people are buying a guide and using epoxy, but I need more details. What size guide? What do you use to replace the rubber grommit on the St. Croix's? I would love it if someone posted pictures.

Funny you mention it. I just picked up everyting to do it for another rod. I picked up a rod tip replacement kit to get the tip. I think it is 6 mm hole size. I picked up some 5/32 id rubber grommets The gromment gets squeezed a little so that 5/32 shrinks enough to accomodate the 1/8 inch spring. I am going to use thread to wrap that tip to the rod and then epoxy.

I picked up one of the legend rods and I love it. So now I will be converting another rod to that spring. I really like the rest of the legend rod also. I wish they werent so expensive. I'd have 3 of them.

Get a size 8 single foot guide and knock out the ceramic ring on the inside and get a rubber grommet from sears that fits the id of the guide hole and your ready to roll once you epoxy it to the pole.
