      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 .

Hey you guys, I was wondering what type of reels that you use when you are out running out on the lake? Does it make sense to have a bait caster w/ a line counter? Also what is you preferred choice to run at the end.

I really prefer a good baitcaster for trolling cranks, I don't use a linecounter but they are a good thing to have. I use a lot of the ambassader reels. Good tough reels with good drags. I've just adapted over the years of trolling cranks by counting rods sweeps or layers off the spool. Another trick is to put a bobber stop at 100 ft and you can adjust a little shorter or lonfer from there.

I like fireline or power pro for line. Especially when fishing the weeds. Gives you good feel plus you can easily snap off weeds you snag.

For lures on Rice I like shad raps of various models and size because of the vibration they give off. Changes in vibration mean I've picked up some weeds. I also use the lipless cranks when the water warms up a bit. Colors...Last year I did nery well on firetiger, chartruese, clown and perch. As the weeds die down I use more long baits like husky jerks, rattlin rogues and thunder sticks.
