      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 .

Tick Tock Tick Tock

Only 1 or 2 more days before many of us leave town for the walleye opener.

I've had my boat out several times this year but finally took a little time today to get my walleye gear ready ---- respooled a few reels, tied on a few jigs, checked my cranks and plastics, etc. Felt good to be looking at the walleye gear again.

I'm getting anxious and am hoping to leave town on Thursday night. Anyone else already got their mind on the lake and not on business at home grin

Here's wishing you all a happy and safe fishing opener!

I just finished re-spooling 6 reels. Boat is finally all buttoned up and ready. Batteries charged, bearings greased.

Unfortunately I will be working Thurs and Fri, but will hopefully get the line wet 2 or 3 times on Saturday. I've been a little distracted all week.

It's a long season that officially begins Saturday. Other than the usual anticipation, it's just another day on the water for myself and clients this weekend.

Good luck to all!

Let me rephrase that, Re-rigging, Re-spooling, Re-tieing in 5 foot choppy waters but I will be there lol

A few years ago my first trip of the year was on Lake Erie --- right after we got to our first spot I was laying on my back under the console trying to trace wires to find out why the GPS crapped out. It was really wavey, we couldn't see shore, and I thought I was going to be seasick. Not fun. It turned out that a simple fix by the battery solved the GPS problem but it took 20 minutes to figure that out grin Not a great way to start the trip

    • Thank you for setting this up and keeping track. It was a lot of fun to be somewhat in contention. I don’t really care  one way or the other for the lucky dog. The one good thing is it let more guys get in a week late and still have a shot at winning. Thanks again
