      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 .

Joe *dirt* Chadwick and I talked last night about a big trout someone lost while fishing with me. I suggested that he take his dad or grandpa after is. He took his cousin Pat Schendel with him instead.

Pat caught the 22 and 3/4s in small stream brown on the second cast. That trout was 5 inches longer than any other trout Pat had caught in his life. Pat and Joe stopped in to my house to thank me for the tip on the big trout. I snapped a photo of it before it went to the taxidermist's

One hour after the first visit my phone rang. The 2 were so pumped up about trout fishing....they went out again. Pat scored a "TWIN" to the first trout. A second trip was in order to the taxidermist. One was caught in Richland County and other was caught in Crawford County. Both were caught on night crawlers.

Both will be placed on the same piece of driftwood.

Congrats Pat Schendel!

I cought a 21.5 inch brookie this year and instead of letting it go i was going to bring it to the taxidermy place but had no money...so that was the best tasting trout i have ever had. That is an awesome story and would have gotten them mounted for sure. To me replicas are worthless and fake any one can go out and get a replica of any kind of fish. The only way to go is a real mount because its the exact fish you got. as uncle ted once said "The Beast Is Dead Long Live The Beast"
