      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 .

Question for the Lake Superior fisherman

I am looking at getting a couple new line counter reels this year for the big water and not sure which ones to get. Which ones are the best as far as retrieval rate, durability and accuracy? Thanks

I really like the Diawa Sealine Linecounters. For the money I think they are the most reliable. Shimanos are very good but very very pricey. I have some Okumas that are a bit cheaper and have held up to 3 years of use. Some guys have had problems with them though.

Shakespear makes some and I hear Bass Pros line is pretty good. I havent used either though. I do have some bottom bouncer combos from Bass Pro and they are very nice for the price. Parsons and Kavietz supposedly designed their walleye line and trolling lines for them.

I guess if I were looking for a few new ones I would get the Sealines.

I'm going to toss one more in there that I just received at a reasonable price. The Depthmaster's from Cabela's are a pretty solid reel, anyways they feel solid. Put together better than the cheaper priced Shimano's and Okuma's that I have.

Unfortunately they have not seen use yet, give me a few months and I will report back on em'.

I have used the Cabela's depthmaster reels 1 depthmaster ll and 1 depthmaster gold both 20 series matched with a cabela's innerflow rod,,, the gold is by far a more solid reel ,,,I have had issues with the line counter on the depthmaster ll,,,both have smooth drags and are available with dual or single handle ,,,I do have 2 sealine 17s and they work flawlessly ,,My 2 pennies

Last time I was at cabelas they were getting rid of some of the older diawa's for newer models. Diawa linecounter for 44.99 and a free cabelas rod to go w/ it. I forget w/ rod thought it may be the tourney series. I would give them a call. I like my diawa's. work well so far.

I gotta agree with Northlander...the Sealines are great. My dad has two for the big lake and they are slick. I just bought my first Sealine 17 for walleye trolling...it will likely see the big lake as well. cool.gif

Wellesy you will realy like the 17's for eye trolling. I also use them for bottom bouncing.

Bottom bouncing was another tactic I'm looking forward to doing a little better with my new set-up. The full rig is a Shimano Clarus 7'10" medium telescoping with the Sealine 17 spooled with PP. Figured it would be a pretty versatile set-up. grin.gif
