      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 .

What action and power for walleye jigging?

Recommended Posts

Yesterday I bought a 6'8" medium extra fast St. Croix Avid. I've had one friend say take it back and get a ML fast and another friend that says get a M fast because they use different guides and are more sensitive. I want one mostly for jigging walleyes anywhere from 8'-25'. I have been using a Guide Series 6'6" ML fast and can't complain it's just that I listen to my buddies and they say I'll catch more if I used a more sensitive rod. The one thing I like about the avid St. Croix is it comes with a lifetime warranty. Thanks in advance.

I think there is plenty of sensitivity with a Medium Fast for jigging. I use my 6'6" M,F for jigging, casting, and even occasional trolling. I have a ML Triumph series that is better suited for casting light lures and far less suited for trolling, it works well for jigging as well. If I had to choose one, I'd go for medium.

Although I use Gloomis rods, it sounds to me like you made a good choice. For jigging I like med/fast action rods. My main jigging rod is a 6' and my backup is a 6/6 med-light/fast action. The Avid will be a great jigging rod. You may want to try a little deeper water though as surface temps start to drop. Good luck.

I have mediums and medium-lights for walleye fishing and prefer to use the MLs first, depending on what I'm doing and how much lead I'm using. Both are good, it's really what you prefer and what feels best to you.

btw the Avid is a great stick.

I'll second PerchJerker's response and say that much depends on where you're jigging, and how much weight you're using.

Deep water in good current on the river, and I'll use up to 1oz jigs. For 1/2oz and up I like a Medium Fast in a 6' or 6'3". I prefer the shorter rod for better control. For lighter applications (most of the year), I'll use a MLF action first. I've been using the Limit Creek 6'6" MLF on the river this year, and have been impressed. It's a very all-purpose rod that I use for jigging, rigging, and pitching.
