      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 .

questions about tight lining

Recommended Posts

cbrunick57

Having a hard time finding any good articles pertaining to it, figured this would be my best resource. I understand the bare basics of tight lining, using the line as your bite indicator. Anyone care to elaborate more on the subject. What type of rod yor prefer, is hi vis mono your best bet? Any help on the subject would be greatly appreciated. Just trying to expand my knowledge a bit.

Dont consider myself an expert tightliner but I use the ht ice blue rods. Some people cut the ends off one of mine broke off after lawrence told me to cut it off. Needless to say that is one of my favorite schooley rods. I do have a couple other rods that arent ht and they work good also. HiVis is a must I would say cause it makes it easier to watch the line. Just bring that rod with and no others by the end of the day you will have tought yourself how you tightline.

As for rods a lot of us are using HT Ice Blue 24" rods. Trick is to cut off the orange tip and replace tip with a #3 fly rod tip. The reason is that you want a stiff rod to control the jig but a fiberglass to work better with a Schooley Reel. Keep and eye out as I'm working with Tuned Up Custom Rods on creating an ultimate tightlining rod with them with high end fiberglass, cork handle and recoil guides. It has been rocking so far this year. As for line we are using Stren Hi-Vis 2lb or 4lb line. You want to make sure you use a mono as it floats. Hopefully the above video shows you a lot but remember that you're watching the line under the water.
