      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 .

We used gill nets. I know the local biologist through our chapter of Muskies Inc - several of our members volunteer for various DNR projects. I'm hoping to get in on a fall shocking survey.

Yeah, I'm a biology major and have a huge interest in the DNR. Too bad it is very competitive right out of school!! Not the best time right now to be job hunting either. If you ever need any more volunteers sometime, let me know!

I strongly considered going into the dnr when I got out of high school, but it's really tough to get a job unless you're REALLY a standout student. If you really are interested work your tail off, get the best grades possible, and you might have a chance. Doesn't hurt to have some connections, too!

They ended up with over 100 new fish for the week between there and the Jim Falls dam. Lots of recaptures from past years, past days, and even caught several fish twice in the same day. If they didn't have them already they got a floy tag, a metal tag(green and you can see one on the pic on the top fin by the tail), a pit tag, and if in good shape a pectoral fin sample for aging - that where the blood on the fish's throat area is from.
