      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 .

Line Twisting

Recommended Posts

Guest

Hi I'm new to the site. Got a question for any one out there with information.

Is there a good line for vertical jigging that will not twist. I am currently using Berkley Trilene XL #6. It always twists up during the day and I end up throwing about 50 ft of line away per day. Is there a good line out there that will not do this?

Thanks LL

Welcome!! wink.gif

I believe line twist all comes from how you spool your line up on your reel. If you do it incorrectly it will twist on you. We have used Berkley XL,XT, and Tournament Strength and if we don't pay attention to how it's spooling up it will twist on us no matter how we're fishing with it. As long as we spool it up according to the directions we never have a problem. Good Luck!

That should be good line I use Berkley cold weather and love it.
Two questions is it twisting right away?
(solution flip spool over)
or do you us a swivel on your jig which will also twist it if you are pounding alot
(solution tie direct)
hope this helps if not you will have to turn to the real experts

the guys are right. first you have to determine if the twist are coming from putting it on backwards, or from your lure. jigs, jigging lures of many types will twist as you work them. a swivel can sometimes help. or may make it worse. one neat trick i read about in my last bassmasters mag. on jigging spoons was; that they will twist your line. after a while, just lower your lure to the depth you are fishing and lay the rod down. the line will start untwisting it self and in doing so it spins the lure. gives the fish a different look and all you have to do is watch. in the summer i usually let the line out behind the boat every once in a while to uload the line. . hope this helps ! del

Putting it on backwards is the main issue...

The directions say "If the twist sets in flip the spool over and continue to fill".

Well, easier said is to open your bail after about 12 turns of the reel, and if it comes off like a slinky, flip the spool over.

Summertime is easy to fix line while in the boat. While moving at idle I let a bunch of line out and drag it in the water for about 50 yards and then reel in. Comes off the spool like a dream after that.

If you fish alot of Bluegills your line will twist up on you alot quicker...Bluegills have a "swirling" tendancy in their battle.

If you want to have some real fun with line problems, twisting, mother nature knots, and "birds nests" give Stren a try. grin.gif
