      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 .

88 2000,

I was probably the one that said I have 8# or 10# Power Pro on all of my rods. Great stuff! laugh.gif

I had the Fireline Crystal on my ice rods last winter and it worked great! I plan to spool a couple of rods this spring with the Crystal to see how well it works on my summer rigs. I think that it will perform well.

I have used the green 8# power pro for the last few years...works great. I tie a mono leader of about 4 ft. ahead of my lindy rig or jig. I find it give me a great ability to feel fish...especially jigging deep.

I like trying different lines. I need to keep a journal because I forget what/when I use different stuff. I, too, like the PowerPro. Why so heavy? I go as light as I can.

Trying some Berkley Iron Silk this spring...

I have always used the moss green Power Pro in 8#test/1# dia. or 10# test/ 2 # dia.

I have used the Iron Silk for leaders and liked it because it has very little memory. The knots are weak though if you do not wet them when you tie them! It also seems to be larger in dia. compared to other lines of the same pound test.

I switched to red line last year, Cajun line from Shakespeare, and have really liked it when fishing for bass or catfish. Haven't tried it yet on Vermilion, but am hoping for the same luck.

It's not so much the color for me, but I really like casting and durability of this line. Those two things are more important to me, and the red doesn't seem to matter to the fish, but makes a good conversation starter.

Do braids and other super lines last longer than mono? I change out my mono frequently.

I am still using the Power Pro from last spring.
