      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 .

Favorite trolling line?

Recommended Posts

I need to re-spool for the upcoming season. Just wondering if what everybody else is using for your trolling line, I run planers on Lake Superior for early Coho's, Browns, Steelheads ect plus I use my those same rods for Mille Lacs both in the spring and Fall.

I usually use Triline XL 10lb and it has worked fine but I am always willing to try something new.

Oh Yeah I usually only troll with Cranks, Raps, sometimes harness and some spoons also.

Fireline is my line of choice. Pulling raps you can usually get the bait down a few feet more and when you do get hung up you just pull up the tree or the hook will bend and the lure will come free.

I personally like 30# Power Pro. But if I wanted to gain value from the book "Precision Trolling", then I'd use what is advised in that book.

Precision Trolling contains charts and info on how to convert their dive curves to the line you're using - very simple and easy to follow, just look for it.

I mostly use 10 lb XT when using planer boards, and use superlines anywhere from 8 lb test to 50 lb test when trolling flatlines or casting cranks. I like Stren Superbraid and PowerPro, there are other good ones too.

10lb XT for trolling cranks and using with downriggers, 20lb XT for use with the Dipsey Divers, and 80lb PowerPro to troll for Muskie.

I have used Trilene Xt in 10 or 12# test for trolling eyes on Lake Superior for years and it never let me down. In the past 2 years I put Gamma on 1 rod and tried it out and so far no problems with that either.

Mostly I troll Power Pro in 10# for eyes and 20# for riggers and 35# for dypsies.

I have yet to find a technique that Trilene XT doesnt work for except slip bobbers and some lindy rigging I use XL.

I'm a Berkley man myself, but I gave into all of the advertising this winter, and bought some 8 lbs Sufix Siege line for my walleye rod.
