      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 .

KOTC St Croix Channel Cat Upgrade

Recommended Posts

Picked up a beautiful 30" X 19.5" = 49.5 point KOTC channel cat upgrade from the St Croix tonight. Picked him up on fresh cut sucker at 2030. Got another channel at 2146 that was a beaut too at a fat 29" fish but it was not an upgrade for me. Channels are really hammering cut bait - I had a struggle getting the rod out of the rod holder when he hit.

Variety -- it is the spice of life, eh? Nice fish Steve! I'd rather catch a channel like that than 5 of the tiny flatheads I've been getting. Those big channels put up a fight!

how big was your cutbait and did he swallow it?? my god that thing is chunky.

I got one last week on a 7" bullhead so they are feeding pretty heavy right now. The one I caught after this one was 29" and really fat too. I was fishing a chunk of cut sucker about 2" X 3" on a 5/0 circle hook and he was hooked solid right in the corner of the mouth. They hit the bait so hard that the rod just buckles over in the rod holder.
