      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'm looking for the perfect setup for jigging walleyes. What are your favorites. Thinking about a Cabels's IM7. What about IM8?

I think there's a bunch of manufactures that make decent rods.

Why are you going to buy one?

Did you break your old one?

Are you just getting into jigging?

You could spend 50$ -400$

My advice is to get a medium action to medium light.

I would also ask you to think about warrenty.

What about modulus content and guide construction.

Grandt rods make there own blanks & when making the rod the spline is in correct position. They use Titantium oxide guides with stainless steel seats.Graphite reel seats and AA cork handles.Add in an unlimited lifetime wareenty and the fact that they are made in Illinois,USA you could not buy a better rod.

They are so sensitive.The rods have awesome power for great hooksets and for no matter the reason ,break one & they'll give you a new one.

I've been using them for awhile now & it's truely amazing at how many more fish I'm catching due to feeling the bump and the fights are way more fun with a rod that works for you not against you.The All American line runs about $147 but there are deals were a guy could get 20% off.

I was once told that a great jigging rod is a Fly Rod with a spinning reel on it. Never tried it but it sounds feasible.

My Jigging set up is a Guide Series from Gander Mountain with a Pflueger Trion reel, I think its the 4730 or the 4735 I am uncertain of the rod model # but it a ML 6 foot.

Works great for me hope this helps.

I like the St. Croix premier rods, which are not as expensive as their top of the line but are excellent. Cost is under $100. I like rods that are stiff but not too stiff. My St. Croix is 7 feet long and 3-piece because I use it for travelling. It's a great fishing tool, and very high quality.

I don't think I agree with the fly rod analogy because the rod should be stiff enough for good hook sets. A fly rod isn't really made for hook sets, they're made to be limber so the fish can wear itself out without straining the leader. At least that's true until you get into the very heavy fish fighting rods that are used for tarpon.

I just purchased (okay for this summer) a Limit Creek (a FM sponsor) 6'9" ML rod, they call it the smoothie. I use 8/3 fireline crystal with a fluro leader. Awesome set up, awesome rod, definately can feel the differences on bottom structure.

New this year, I have had the opportunity to use the Jason Mitchell Guide Series rods. Which are by far the best jigging and rigging rods I have used...

The 5'9" medium power with the extra fast tip is a great jigging rod. Teamed with a Pfluger President, the rod balances out great. I am hooked on these rods!!!

Do a search and you can find more info on the rods...
