      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 .

thats awesome! ive always wondered....

ive heard that you can use a coffee can, and punch holes in it with a large nail (punching INTO the can), and then you put some meat on the inside... would this work too?

Yes, you can use the coffee can method if you don't have aluminum. We've been talking about branding some leech traps and selling them at some point! : ) Some guys use plastic bags with holes in them. But this is the most efficient way we've found.

One key advantage to the flat traps is that if you are unable to check your traps for a few days, the leeches can leave. So, you're not doing any damage to their livelihood. Good trappers will take good care of their ponds, and care for their bait.

Thanks a lot. Its a good business to be in - I love conversing with fishermen after they use the bait. Its awesome to hear the good stories. Sometimes they share filets too!

I've seen that video - Mike Rowe is very cool. The way they trap in that video is pretty much the same, except they use canoes. I am going to try cooking some one of these days too!

that was cool, only other way I've seen it done was on Dirty Jobs on Discovery, they followed a northern MN family that trapped, sorted and sold.
