      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 .

Curado Drag problem

Recommended Posts

nthomps66

I bought a new Shimano Curado from Capra's at the Sportshow. I had it out for the first time this weekend and the drag doesn't work. I tightened the drag down as hard as I could and it's still very easy to pull line out. As a matter of fact I couldn't even set the hook correctly on a 17" largemouth.

The reels only have two adjustment knobs. One for the drag and one for the brake. What gives?

If I return it are they going to give me a new spool of Power Pro or transfer my line to a new reel?

Did you tie backing to the power pro line if not it is most likely slipping on the spool

I'm with 250XB, what kind of line do you have on the reel. If you are using a braid, you have to use some kind of backing. I have never heard of a Curado with this problem?

I believe I used 30# Power Pro braid with a backing. The line is not slipping on the spool. I am not a rookie. I have read the instructions and thought maybe someone has had a similar problem.

UFATZ- I don't come on this site for smart (Contact US Regarding This Word) answers. Don't reply to posts if that's what you have to offer.

Sounds like you know your reels. It must be defective, call them and/or return it.

Call them and ask. Maybe they can spool your line off the old one and put it on a new Curado for you?

Those reels are excellent and you must have a lemon...

Shimano has a great warrenty program.. They will take care of you!

It sounds as though your reel has a problem. If I had to guess, somehow some of the packing greese got on the break washers...

      The wife and I were up to L O W  for whole week. Great weather, good fishing and fun time. Was able to fish 7 days split up between Morris point, Long point and the river. For me Long point was the better bite. May have seen a couple members of outdoors Mn on Tuesday out of LP. Let me know if I'm right. Also met member from Wisc. at Morris point( real good guy) Anyway didn't seem to matter much what color jig caught them on every color with frozen shiner. Some days were better then others but always caught fish. Ate several meals of fish and brought fish home. Also caught a 14 in perch that I brought into taxidermist. Plan on going back at least one more time this fall . ( Too good not to).

      Got some grouse and saw some nice coveys. The biggest was 6 birds but found couple groups of 5. That is always fun.

      we mainly jigged fatheads in front of their mouths. 2 weeks ago also and tried a few different times over 3 days this trip. water is still crazy low so I don't think many boats will be using access. Also tried a couple different plastics and some gulp. Probably ready to go crazy up there soon.  Last year at this time it was really good. Might get there once more before ice time but not sure.

      Been thinking about breaking out the Jiggin Raps, might have to give that a shot. It's been too crowded out there this weekend with MEA going on.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?

      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.
