      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 .

Speaking for myself, there hasn't been a lack of trying, that's for sure.

The ratio of nights at home/fishing is still leaning on the fishing side. The past few nights have brought the balance somewhere back to a semi-sane level, but the next couple of weeks will make quick work of that.

Just a matter of time, and the bumps and bruises suffered early on will pay dividends.

I was getting a bit concerned about have a bait reserve on hand (stubborn little guys), but I finally was able to put in a little sweat equity and taken care of that for a couple of weeks.

I have heard of several over 30 lbs lately. Two are from a spot I have fished recently.

The fishing this spring has been better for fish in the 30lb range than I can ever remember! Have put many fish in the boat over 30lbs already and quite a few in the 20's. Only thing that were lacking is the 40+ pound fish.

I think that there are going to be significantly fewer 40's caught this year.

I also think that the first 40 is not going to be caught in my boat.

Nothing but monsters like Darrens 14 by 7.5 he got the other night.
