      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 .

Carp for sure, unless it's on my plate. The only thing a walleye is good for is eating smile

Yup.

"I think I might have one on... no, it must just be a stick. Oh, wait... it's a walleye."

man... are you guys serious? This is a bad joke gone wrong. Where did you all come from?

I can't even ponder how a carp would be important than a walleye.

Fought the first carp of the year a couple of nights ago fishing for walleye. I have to say, it was one heck of a fight. Roughly 8 lbs or so, about a ten minute battle, better than any walleye or northern I've fought.

I agree on the carp's fighting strength. Just last week I hooked my first carp in about 15 years, and man did that thing pull! It only went maybe 4 pounds but it fought much harder than cats or suckers of the same size.

Each to their own - but you have to be kidding.

Walleye #1 is the lean cusine of freshwater fish for the table.

Carp is for making pet food.

Yep, each to their own, but I'll take a mess of sunnies before a walleye for tablefare any day of the week. Not even close.

I caught a 34lb 9oz Carp this past Friday, and I have to say that was the best fight I've ever had with a rod on open water. Took almost an hour to get it in and then 2 of us to get it out of the water. But a good fight is all they're good for.

I'll go with the #1 game fish in the world. Yes the Carp! Bass and Walleye just don't fight that hard.

Take a look at the carp gear.
