      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 .

I too noticed it to have excessive stretch. It also seemed to have more memory that I find acceptable.

I use the copolymer for snells and I'm very happy with it.

My question is this....why is Cajun line RED? Aren't fish supposed to be attracted to the color red?

I got a free spool of cajun with a pfluger baitcaster I bought...the line is junk.

red is supposed to disappear in water but this makes no sence then why do red hooks that make the lure look like its bleeding? shouldnt the red hook be invisible?

Red is the hardest color to see underwater, but agreed, that's a stupid idea for a fishing line.

I dont care for it but it sells and I see other companies jumping on the red line bandwagon.

Ace, Just my opinion but only used the 20lb red cajun up fishing sturgeon in April. I caught a 52.5, 50, and 5 sturgeon over 48 inches on it. I took about 50 yards off and fished with it for northern pike in canada and had no problems. Just my 2 cents.

I use Cajun Red all of the time for leaders on my walleye lindy rigs and love it!

Very tough knot strength and line strength!

Have used it a few times for live bait rigging and have had absolutely no problems. I just put some fresh line on the spool in the boat the other day and never had to run it out behind the boat to get memory out! blush.gif

I normally use Cortland 6lb. Camo which is far more superior that most of the other popular brands IMO.

But so far can't complain about CAJUN RED!!!

I have about 500 yards of the stuff on my trolling rod and love it. So far no problems. My 12lb. leader broke before the 8 lb did. Didn't seemed that inconsistent considering I had 80+ feet of line out when that happened.

I think it's junk -- way too stretchy, really really inconsistent diameters and break strengths. But it's cheap and easy to see so I use it as backing on my larger trolling reels and it works great for that.

What pound test line are you guys using?

I use ten pound on a 2500 reel and I haven't noticed much stretch or weakness. The other day I pulled up a 1"x6"x4' wood board from 15 ft of water without the line breaking.

I believe the red color is just it's trade mark and does not have much to do with a fish visual perception of sensing fishing line.

You think people would be more concerned on Dia to lb ratio? Using the thinest dia line with the greatest lb test rating. So that when fish take your line they wont be able to notice there is a bit of extra weight it is pulling?

I tried a spool (8 lb) for the first time this year. I've only had one break-off with it and that was due to a little confrontation with the motor...

I don't have any performance or cost complaints with this line.

I had 6 lb Cajun line spooled on one of my ice reels last year. It had horrible memory. I stripped the line off the reel and tossed it halfway through the season.

Red is the first color to be filtered out of water in the light spectrum. With the line being transparent it will be filtered out around 12’. The red hooks and paints are not transparent so light will not filter through them making them standout.

I will use the line on a snell, but never on a reel. I've tried twice and had nothing but a tangled mess.

Like any mono it will have memory. The only way to aviod snarls is to make sure you line is tight while reeling in. Using the stuff on a DM II and no problems trolling cranks or spinners.

      Are fuses necessary on an on board charger?  Manual chargers do not have them,  is there a reason for them on the on board charges. I was given a system with a bank that may not have been working correctly, possibly blowing the fuse repeatedly.  My system would not be hooked up to an alternator on the engine so I'm wondering if it is fine to use the charging bank without the fuses.  The orange charging light comes on when I hook the wires directly up to a battery. I'm asking because I don't want to go through the bother of wiring this thing in my boat if I can't get it to work right. Also, I would technically only need 2 of the 3 banks to work, but I like the idea of repairing it to its potential.

      Looking to get on some walleye and crappie this week, looks like mayflies were out in full force last night when I was on the lake. First year fishing this lake, where does a guy start?

      Picked up some nice crappie and a couple eater walleyes on Allouez Bay the other day before the rains. Trolled crawlers with one light split shot and others with bottom bouncers. I was surprised at how big the crappie were

      ripped out some old boards that were well past their prime on my boat.  Any recomendations on what to replace them with?  They looked to be treated plywood but wondering if getting something different would work better.  Such as a piece of 1 x 12 pine and throwing a few coats of polyurethane on it as well?  The boards I am talking about are for the benches.   Also, replacing the seats in there as well.  Previous i had the the vinyl foam seats.  When shopping around i am seeing a lot of the molded plastics chairs.  Any preference out there for durability?  Vinyl rips but wondering if the molded crack or break?   Thanks for any feed back!

      The flocks of geese are now flying over my house in the morning and evening, but when this happens Finn gets all jacked up. Like right now he is nudging me and running pawing at the window. A few minutes earlier when the first gaggle few over I was going to change the laundry and Finn raced down and sat by gun safe  whining.  Fishing reports have been great for crappies on the area lakes. Walleyes are not biting as well in lakes but when the rum is clearer that is the place to be. Bears any no quota hunters this might be your year to get a bear around here.  Deer seem to every where drive carefull.  Seeing some ducks flying around.  I have seen a few grouse and pheasants.
