      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 .

Downrigging cable noise question

Recommended Posts

I am running two Cannon downriggers with 8 Lb weights, I made a maiden trip to Mille Lacs on Sunday.

At about 1.8 to 3.0 mph I get a audible hum from the downrigger line. The line is braided 150 lb capacity line.

I was running a depth of 20 to 33 feet down.

I am thinking this hum can't be conducive to catching fish.

Has anyone else ran into this and is it a problem?

Thanks,

Mark

All downriggers (at least the ones I've fished with) make that humming sound. For me, I use it as a guide. I can almost tell by how they are humming, how fast the boat is going. I don't think it affects the fishing.

Old school way to figure out if you were going fast enough was to make sure the cables were singing. For salmon fishing anyway.

Thanks for the response guys. I had one downrigger down... and it was singing pretty good.... I am thinking it would sound like a whole orchestra with four or more down... LOL

You should hear what 80lb PowerPro does in a 6-7 mile per hour river current. Sounds like the wind howling through the tree tops. Just crazy!
