      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 .

Trolling Reels

Recommended Posts

Has anybody had good luck with the Cabelas Depthmaster Gold Trolling reels?

I want to get a nice mid range trolling reel possibly a combo and I'm wondering if they are a good deal or not. Also, do they have a clicker?

it doesn't really say in the cabelas ad if they do or not but the picture looks like they do.

Thanks for the input guys!

I have four of the Gold reels and love them! I've got two 45s and two 30s and haven't had a lick of trouble with either one. Next time they go on sale I will be picking up two more.

The Gold reel is made by Okuma and I believe it's a cousin to the Convector. I am very happy with them and would only trade up to get a Shimano Tekota.

I'm still using 2 Herter's reels that are as old as me I think and they work great for muskie trolling with 80# braided.

I have one Gold and can compare them to the Daiwa Sealines. They are roughly the same price. Both are good trolling reels. Biggest difference is the click (both loud and soft) on the Daiwas vs silent and loud on the Cabelas. I feel the drags are comparable.

+1 on the gold. I have had one for 10+ years, not a lick of trouble.
