      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 .

LED Flashlights

I was at Gander today and I noticed a bunch of LED flashlights have either red, green or blue bulbs along with the white ones. Does anyone know the advantage of having a green or blue bulb?

The red shouldn't affect your night vision as much as the white light does. Green may be the same thing but I'm not sure.

I was once told that the blue light will help with finding blood spots in the dark. I bought one and can tell you that the blue does not help at all. The LED light is nice but white is what I will stay with.

They also say that the red cannot be seen by deer......I have never tested it and will stick with the white light and just go in to the stand a little earlier.

I've heard the red isn't as not noticable by deer too.

I like the red LED while getting my stuff organized in the stand.

I bought one of those LED lights for your head, on the recommendation of a fishing guide. It has a white or green light. I was told animals can't see the green - I can't prove or disprove that statement. What I can say, the green light is great when with others, it's not blinding like the white light. The purchase was worth the money and look forward to using a hands-free light walking to the deer stand.

The green is a nice benefit when with others. When we are at elk camp sitting around the table playing cards, it is nice to turn the green on every now and then and not blind everyone.

      I resisted converting to braided lines. I liked my TrileneXL. Then, one day about four years ago I decided to spool up with fireline and at first I didn't think I could really feel much difference. Skeptical me, I always held on to that spool loaded with my trusty Trilene. One day I decided to put that mono back on and immediately could feel the difference. It felt like I was fishing with a rubber band. I went back to braided and haven't looked back.

      Last night a flock of geese buzzed the house and Finn went nuts! I think he wants to get out hunting as much as I do.

      Nice video Curt.  Looks like you are having way too much fun out there. Enjoy the time on the water.

      I will probably go out to my parents farm and set up in a pasture. The cattle have it mowed down pretty good. The geese seem tp pile in there pretty good. I won't hit it to hard, just get out a few times and hopefully get my son to get his first goose...

      I have really gone to line Gamma brand line. It is a copolymer. Soft like mono but abrasive resistant as well. I prefer it in #6 for game fish and #4 for panfish.... If I can't find it I fall back to trilene in XL.......
