      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 type and color on a clear lake? (i.e. WBL, Dmtrvl)

Recommended Posts

Thinking of clear lakes.. as in White Bear Lake or Demontreville... does using fireline vs floro make a HUGE difference or just a questionable difference?

I love fireline.. I don't use leaders on it.. mainly target bass/northern in the summers... and I only lost 2 lures all last year.

A good compromise, I would guess, is to tie on couple feet of mono/floro.. I wonder if neccesary larger diameters are just as visible though as the fireline?

Where can one learn the proper knot for super to floro? Can you actually buy long assembled floro/mono.. of course casting might be a problem (as in another post I just looked at) with the connector.

Curious just how people rig for super clear waters.

wall eyell be

Someone else can answer for the bass AND for Demontreville.

BUT as for the Northerns in WBL . . .

WELL . . .

You could put a hot dog on a gaff hook tied to a chunk of clothesline and if you tossed it into WBL, one of the d*mn hammerhandles in that lake would try to eat it !!

Mr Special

I personally use a mono or fluro leader when fish panfish, and wallys. I like to used the strenght leader as my main line. Say 2/10PP then I would use 10 fluro or mono leader. I like to tie the two together with a Uni knot.

This also might help

Smoke colored Fireline works for me on clear water. Use a back to back uniknot when connecting mono to superline. The uni is versatile; it is a little tricky to tye, but once mastered, you will like it! Check out this link...it has some good knots to try.
