      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 .

Planer Boards... Which type?

Recommended Posts

Howdy All....

Let me start out by telling you I'm on a "less-is-more" kick around my place right now and it applies to my boat as well.

Now..... Let's talk planer boards....

I currently have both type of boards. I have (2) of the small in-lines type and (2) of the large, mast style type. And the mast of course. Both have there place in how I fish, which type can I do without?

I like the little boards because they are so quick to bring into action. Excellent for smaller waters where trolling runs are not very long. Easy to store. And I tend to use these more often than the mast style boards. BUT... After the strike, you end up with quite a handful before you're in touch with the fish.

The large mast style bords are nice in they're own respect, due to the fact you run them basically like downriggers. At the strike, Mr. Fishy pops the line out of the clip and you're off to the races without have to remove anything from the line. Sort of a pain to set up, compared to the in-line models, but once trolling, a pleasure to use. A pain to store due to size. Also, tough to use on smaller waters due to short trolling runs.

I'm riding the fence on this. I fish about a 70/30 split, small to large waters.

What do you folks think?

Thanks for your input....

Well let me know which you would like to let go because I am in the market for a mast and boards. I would like to have them for Lk. Superior before June.
