      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 .

Red Power Pro

Hey, Has anyone tried using the red power pro braided line on Mille Lacs? (Or any of the red lines for that matter). I've got half a mind to give it a try.

I was using red cajun mono on my bobber rig on monday and boated more than the other 3 in the boat. Worked great for me.

All the feedback I've heard from muskie fisherman regarding red Power Pro is that it bleeds. If you use it, expect your hands to be pink for awhile. Also, avoid wearing light colored clothing unless you're looking for the pink tie-dye look.

i caught a rod & reel on saturday that looked like it had been underwater since fall or longer. it had a flourescent green line like ive never seen. i wonder if it is the line you are talking about? the rod is a shakespear graphite, 6'6"-medium action 2 piece with a crooked end eye, and the reel is a 3 bearing shimano. i also caught a crawdad. my fishing buddy caught a rock...it was about the size of a tennis ball and he brought it up.

regards,

MNtuff,

Did your buddy get the rock by Shaws reef or Doe Island? I have caught rocks in that area before when I was ice fishing. I also have lost a couple of polls (with kids in boat) like you stated on Doe island reef when I was trolling. I never had green line before though.

shackbash,

it was in the SSW part near spirit island... im wondering if the flourescent green line is power pro? i use fireline mainly and im not sure about using flourescent line. other than that, its cleaned up but i have to take it apart and grease/oil it, then it will be useable.

regards,

Just received the 100lb Power pro Phantom Red and put it on my trolling rod(Muskie). It did leave some red dust when spolling it onto the rod and real.I have used the dark green Tuff line XP for a very long time and have not had an issue with that. I will report my findings after I get to use it. I would assume I'm going to get some bleeding as described.
