      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 .

"FIRELINE", "MONO" ??

Recommended Posts

I have been using fireline for a few years now..Mostly for walleye's and jiggin'.. I have at times, ran this on some of my panfish poles.. I did not like it due to tearing through those "BIG CRAPPIE's mouth.. Late ice, when playing a game of "CHESS" with the "FAT-n-ROUND" bluegills, or perch,I like it for a quick hook set.. I run mono on poles also.. for a little stretch.. Sometimes I run mono with a smaller dia.fireline leader.. or fireline with mono leader for a little stretch on the end....

I usually run Berkley Vanish all year around. I have caught a lot more fish using it. Side by side with a rod that didn't have vanish on it, it out fishined it using the same lure and setup. I at least use a vanish leader, that way it's a litttle cheaper to run.

This year I am going to stick with 4# fireline on primary rod St Croix Legend and use the 3# Berkely Ice on my second rod which is a Scheels ML. So far the primary has been great with the fireline. I have the same set up on my two Jason Mithel Walleye rods, one 6# Fireline one 6# Ice. Last year on Mille Lacs I believe the Fireline helped me CRP a 37" Northern. Typically I do not use tipups as I like to keep two rods active, use a rocker on my flip over when I am trying different holes.
