      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 .

Baitcaster reel help

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have a Pflueger reel I am having some problems with. I bought the Purist combo and the reel doesn't seem to be working correctly. When casting on release it seems to be fine but midcast it just dies. I have tried making adjustments (line release not sure the technical term) and it does not change anything. Anybody know what the problem could be? Also does anyone know a good place I could take it to and have it fixed if I am unable to do so. I just started using baitcasters about 2 years ago and have not worked on them before. Thanks in advance.

One more thing. Sometimes when reeling the line guide seems to not move properly and I am able to push it a small amount to get it to "catch up".

If you just bought it, return it and get another reel. If that combo's been sitting out on the rack for a while, customers can really beat them up - If you are buying a setup that is on display, it is always a good idea to look over the reels very carfully to make sure it is working very smoothly (check a few different ones and buy the one that feels best).

If you like the combo, keep the rod and just have them exchange the reel from one that is in the box behind the counter. Less likely to have problems IMO. Good luck!
