      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 .

Owner spinner snells

Recommended Posts

Anyone have any experience with them? What can you tell me? I really like the looks of them, but I'm a little concerned about the quality of the line used in them. Am I worried about nothing?

I hate the lines they use...(that's an opinion)

i use spinner snells about 80% of the time when fishing for eyes. in my experience, i will troll to find them, and spend the rest of the time jigging. but over the last couple of years, jigging isn't cutting it on certian lakes, so i troll in shallow water with spinner snells and have done quite well. i find that more times than not, the eyes want more motion to turn them on.

i don't like most of the snells that are sold, so i make my own. it's easy, and kinda fun on a rainy day. you can find everything you need at Gander or Fleet Farm.

i just made 7 really nice snells for under $10.

When you're making your snells what type of line do you use? I would like to start making my own as well, should I use flourocarbon for this? 8lb test maybe? I have 6lb XL on my 7-0 ML rigging rod and it seems to do the job if you don't horse em. I also have a 6-6 M casting rod with a very moderate taper I might do some rigging with as well.

Sorry if I got off topic, thanks in advance for any advice.

I usually use 6-8 lb XL if I'm making livebait rigs, or 6-8 lb Vanish if I'm in really clear water. For spinner rigs, it's hard to beat XT.

Flouro sinks so it's nice to have a floating bead or a crawler with a puff of air in it unless you want to be right on the bottom.

keep in mind that i'm trolling with these spinners.

i use 14lb mono, at least 36" to 48" long. i want the line tough enough to handle a clevis spinning around for the whole day...can't afford to have the line break, due to 6 to 8 pound test. the key though is weight placement and the length between the wieght and hook. walleyes love the spinning motion, but responed to the erratic movement much better. i put the weight on at least 36" to 48" away from the hook and spinner. imagine how much the bait moves around behind the weight. i also like the heavier test for those hungry Pike.
