      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 .

Bears galore

Recommended Posts

I posted on another thread about our visit last weekend to Holinshead Lake north of Thunder Bay. Wanted to let you bear hunters know about this place. The fishing was pretty darn good, but what impressed me was all the bears we saw, even during the middle of the day, all within several miles of camp. It hasn't been hunted in over 10 years, but the new owner is planning to run bear hunts and moose hunts, though his moose tags are spoken for for this fall. Great location - fish in the morning hunt bears in the evening. Doesn't get much better.

I was North of Thunderbay all last week on Lake nipigon. Had numerous bear encounters. 3 different times had a couple bears in camp. Driving around on logging roads looking for small trout streams, there would be proof about every 30 to 50 feet that bears don't cr@p in the woods. Got some great pics, one video of a roadkill moose gettin' chowed on 10yds off the road. If your thinking about bears in Canada, this is the area. Lots of guides and outfitters boast 90-100% success rates. If you would like some more info about the area, feel free to shoot me an email! jasonyoungquist @ yahoo It was an awesome trip in an awesome place. Every person I met were very friendly, humble, and happy go lucky type of attitude. seems alot like paradise!

Oh yes, lots of brookies... 3"- 14" in streams and 12" to 24" in the lake. All brookies. No lakers, some nice northern, and a few tullibee/ whitefish. Great trip to a great place! Hope to be back sooner than later. You can sit over baits tree them w/ hounds, cruise some logging roads looking for a bruiser.
