      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 .

Unnamed Stream

Recommended Posts

Unnamed stream (Bugger Gut)

caught my very first trout on an unnamed stream. I traditionally go there on May Opener. The last 2 floods really flattened it out. Lots of the holes don't exist anymore.

Looked at it from the bridge I usually start from. It was a mere trickle of what it use to be. I was a little sad. My dad named the stream.

I remember the huge trout I caught on it at age 5. My dad wading in to a deep hole and trapping the monster in the net and against his chest. That hole was about 6 inches deep. I walked downstream looking for some depth in the water. No luck.

Walking back to the bridge was bittersweet. I was going to move on and try a different stream. Decided to go upstream a little way. It started to get a little deeper. I found a nice drop pocket and landed 3 decent browns. couple were 14ers.

Walk around a bend and there was a beaver dam. I caught 11 trout in this dam. The trout were running in to one another trying to take my presentation. ALL the trout were skinny in that hole. 8 of the 11 trout were 16-17 incher.

Bugger Gut LIVES!
