      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 have a few of those. You can buy them, if you are fishing mainly for walleye and are trying to prevent the occasional break due to a snot rocket I'd stick with the regular ones and keep checking for nicks in the line. However if you are targeting the gators I think its a good idea to use the steel leaders. I think I picked mine up at cabelas. If I were to get some new ones now I would just make my own out of Spider Wire or Power Pro.

where we go in canda all there is is northrens and walleye so its a 50/50 chance of what you have on your line. I lost to many fish last year. I looked on the cabelas website but couldn't seem to find them. I have checked the local stores where I live and they don't stock them. I guess I will have to run down to cabelas one of these days

I'll check my tackle box, you can have the ones I have. I might have a couple. I am not 100% that I got them at cabelas it could have been fleet farm I spend lots of money there to....

I think I know exactly what you're talking about - a bunch of guys I know who fish Canada use them all the time. The ones they use are called, I believe, a Spin-O. They would be very easy to make if you can't find them.

If looking to make your own, there's a few new "tieable" wire products out there now....names of which slip my mind at the moment. I bought some that's ultra-thin, and in 13lb test. This seems like a good option if you're also trying to fool eyes and using it with spinner rigs.
