      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 .

Does anyone have preference in line color. I've been told that green will out produce clear. I've always used clear and never thought of changing to green. should I?

I try to match the line to the water. I fish alot of stained water so i use a green that blends in better. But if you are fishing very clear water I can see benefits with going with a clear line.

I don't think there are any hard rules to line color selection but this is atleast how I decide what to use.

I asked that question of some bass pros specifically about our MN clear waters and they all said you can use any color as long as it is Lo-Vis Green. smile.gif

Flourocarbon is always a good choice too as for pure visibility factor - might not be best choice for some applications though.

I've heard a lot of chatter lately about the benefits of red line. Appearantly it disappears better under the water because the red doesn't reflect the sunlight at all.

Anyone out there experimented with red fishing line, like the Cajun line?

YES it works awesome!!! I dont see any diff over clear line but it esp works in red stained waters up here like vermillion or white iron. Ive also had great sucees with it in the soup green lakes back home in southern mn and through the ice this yr in the "ultra" clear blue waters.. I dont know about the sunlight deal but it does seem to dissapear under a varitety of water conditions.
