      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 .

13 Descent Reel

Recommended Posts

Just got it today.  Looks like a nice replacement for the cgi#8. The quick release button for the spool is redesigned so line tangle should not be a problem for those who struggled with it. Spooled it up with 3 pound micro ice on the 27 inch UL tickle stick. Maybe take it for a test run after the cold temps that are coming soon. I think this reel will be a winner.

Also will be trying out the new Decent inline. Paired it u with a TUCR PN:D 

Seems like a good choice for a low cost inline.We will see how it holds up to abuse  once the ice thickens a bit

Looks like a well built reel. Sweet looking to! Still deciding on rod but leaning toward that tickle stick eyeguys got rigged up there. I’m going to try the beaver dam noodle to. Is it pretty much same operation and features as the CGI just in a updated version?

Feels about the same as the cgi, weight and operation wise that is.

The quick release spool is a nice feature   though. I always seem the get line wrapped up in my spool, no matter what model inline I'm using.

Seems like a win so far I was looking at the clam spooler elite and looks good but reviews aren’t the greatest maybe one to try down the road. Trying the decent first.

yer gonna like it. I have a habbit that I always pull the line out with my middle finger barely touching the spool so it doesn't spin like crazy. Very rare it will wrap around. I havnt ever use another inline other than the clam with no drag. Would be fun to check some other brands. Maybe at the get together we can all swap for a few minutes. :)

I think so! I starting doing that end of last year and seemed to work better and I could drop line faster especially handy in deeper water. Honestly I don’t mind my clam spooler I’ve got know just the fly reel type piling line out to drop your jig isn’t a big deal to me and the drag I’ve used once In the 3 years I’ve had it and it worked great hand off reel and pretty push let the reel back reel I left my figured on the spool controlling the line spooling off.
