      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 counter reels?

Recommended Posts

Paul Rohweller

HI Dano,
If you can swing them the diawas are the way to go. I use the okuma magda pro 20 dx models myself. Little cheaper but work pretty good. In the meantime if you have a decent baitcating reel like and ambassadeur you can count levelwind passes when your letting line out, that works as long as you can count. I used to count sweeps, make consistent length sweeps woth the pole while letting line out, count the sweeps for repeatability. Another option is to take a permanent marker and measure out and mark your line in 5 foot increments or however it suits you. Good luck and good fishin!! Paul

I have the same Okuma line counters. I'll vote for the Okuma. $85.00 at Cabela's.

Thanks,
I couldn't wait til Christmas for my wife to get it, so i went to scheels and bought th
Okuma Magdo 20D for $54
headen out to Ottertail real soon to do some eraly evening fishing until dark or maybe later whatever it takes.
I'll probably hit the Amor flats amongst other places.
Maybe just fish the shallows with some rap
floaters and #5's, haven't been there yet this year so I'm not to sure what they are hitting on. probably will try the clown
#5 first. I got a couple jointed 5's this year as well and haven't tryed them yet,
well i did for a little while when i took the kids out boating on Big C,
seems like they might hit bottem at about
11 12ft. , caught a bottem bouncer anyway,
ha, ha, first time I caught any tackle.

then I rigged up for some pan fish and caught a few blue gill and red eyes so the
2 year old could see where these fish are coming from, he got quite the kick out of that.

any Ottertail input would be much appreciated.
thanks

Hi, cant afford one now, but I hinted to my wife for christmas.
Just wondering what kind I should get that would be good and under the $100 range,
I'll let my wife know about it, LOL.

Also, is there away to tell how much line your letting out without one,
is there anyway of marking your line?

      Has anyone ever stored with Oak Narrows Storage before? Need a spot to put a Polaris Ranger for the winter and thinking of calling them for a space, does anyone have any experience or feedback? Any other recommendations would be welcome. Need a 10x10 or 10x12 space likely.
      Thanks!

      the rum is back in its banks so bet the fishing is amazing? Anyone out trying? Where are all of you? I know it’s busy time but let us know what you are chasing.

      I need to slow down and focus on shooting

      Tamarack Island Wilderness Lodge is pretty accommodating. Grassy Narrows Lodge is one of the nicer lodges in my opinion on the Canadian Southern portion. We made a point of stopping at a bunch of locations last year and this is good sized and really nice. At this point it would be my preferred Lodge on that portion of the lake. Both of these are boat into and on an island. Ryan

      Good afternoon guys, I live in Burnsville and I was wondering if anyone has had much luck on Crystal Lake for bass and Pike? I've fished it a few times and only caught 2 bass in a total of 8 hours.  Not looking for any specific locations, but any tips would be much appreciated!!!   Live bait? Plastics? Troll cranks for pike? thanks guys, have a great day. Gabe
