      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 .

Bowfishing Setup

I have been bowfishing for a couple of years now and I am looking to upgrade. I have the reel where you reel it up by hand and that is getting old. $60 seems like a lot of money to spend on a AMS reel when I dont get out all that often. I was thinking of getting a Zebco 808. Or can you use any kind of fishing reel for bowfishing? Like a spinning Reel or like a Zebco 33. Any pictures of setups would be nice too. Thanks

The hand-wound spools are inexpensive but cheap for a reason. Quite frankly, they suck. Do the upgrade, you'll be happy you did. The AMS retriever is awesome but a little spendy. I think you'd be happy with an 808 or even a Shakespeare model for quite a bit less than the Zebco.

you cant go wrong with a retreiver reel, they can last a long time. The guys that use spinners use zebco 808, Shakespeare or the Muzzy reel. there were some talk that Wally World had Shakespeare reels on sale for $11. What ever spinner you use you want it to be as big as possible to fit more line in there. I would recommend 100-150 lbs Power Pro line.

The retriever reel is well worth the 60 or so bucks, i've had mine for the past 2 years and used it often and it still works like new. One of the guys i go with has the same reel and has been using in for 5 years i think and it works just fine still. The cheap ones you buy are just awful, i bought a 20 dollar one just to get started and used it twice and it broke. Spend the extra money you won't be dissapionted.

i really would go with the retriver reel, they work awesome. and the hand woven ones take way to long say you miss a fish or hit one and you want to get it in because there other fish around it takes too long happend to me i missed a small one and then the momma came around and i couldnt get my line in fast engough now its shoot and reel much faster! you really wont be dissapointed!
