      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 .

Taking the kids fishing..

Recommended Posts

My sister in law came up last week from New Mexico with her two daughters. The temps were kind of cool last week and not very good for hitting the lake but her oldest (6) wanted a ride on the boat. So we packed everybody up and headed down to a lake just down the road. At first we just cruised around the lake and the Girls loved it. The youngest loved hitting the waves and turning.

After a while the oldest one asked if we could fish for a little bit. I have fished this lake alot with my two little guys and it always seems like you can pick up a small slimer any time you want. I said sure so we threw out a line and did a little trolling. I told her that she more than likely would catch a fish. It didn't take long and bam.. Fish on. She got so excited she almost let go of the rod. After a little help and a lot of giggling and laughing she finally got it to the boat. It was about a 2 pound Northern. We got pics and sent the fish on his way. The rest of the days talk was about the fish and spending the day on the lake. I just figured I would share with you one the best days of fishing I have ever had.

And I didn't even wet a line...... wink

And she will always remember you for what you did..Mom, that is the Uncle who taught me how to fish!! smilecool

yeah it was really cool to see her catch a fish. Although I might have made my brother a little mad because she told him on the phone that night, "Dad, Uncle took me fishing this morning and I cought a fish right away. How come when we go fishing I never get anything and we fish all day"? grin I told her that there isn't as many fish in NM as in MN. Plus I might have told her that Uncle is a little better fisherman then her Dad.. grin
