      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 .

Marc -

I think I saw a photo from you on a different message board with a WBL ski that had a messed up beak. I think I know that fish and may have a crappy picture of it from the back to compare to yours. I think I messed its mouth up too but its a bit emabarrassing.

Can't wait to slime up the net you sold me!!

Hey Erik, how ya doin? I knew someone would recognize her sooner or later. She ate a surface bait last September about 10 feet from the boat. Post your pic when you get a chance. You'd think her beak problem would hinder her breathing but she was in good health. Anyone who says they handled their first couple of fish well is a liar anyway, at least she was release by you to be caught again, by me.

I should be fully relocated by musky opener, I've still got your number and we'll hit it up a few times in June and beyond.

Funny, Everyone here in the cites sees the musky stickers on my truck and asks "You ever go over to Wisconsin? They've got a bunch of musky lakes within a hour of Minneapolis!"

I'll try to locate the picture but in September 2007 the fish I caught was 44" - does that seem about right? I believe the nose job is the result of a boga-grip gone bad. First and last time I used it. Not proud ot it but I'd like to think my style has improved since then.

We have to fish together for sure this summer.

Let me know when you're totally moved to town.

44" was what I measured, but I don't use the most accurate methods, so there's a chance. You'd think she'd grow 2 inches at least in a year. Fish had some weird different shaded areas, kind of like patches on the skin, lots of various netbag and other scars. You can't really tell from the picture with the sun shining on the fish but it was one of the goofier looking ones I've seen.
