      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 .

Also you can pre-register at Arnies Bar in Shakopee tonight from 6:30-8:30 pm where you will recieve a control item. A cell phone number will be required if you pre-register. A mass text will be sent out friday night about 6:30pm, at which time you will be given a number code to "activate" your control item that needs to be written on the control item.

This notice is 11th hour for some but I hope we get a few of you catters to join.

Its per person Dtro, yea it might be alittle steep but its all donation, and good cause. If you want to give more be my guest. Last years 1st annual raised $800. We have already topped that with our beer bust for the event. We have a number of prizes as well, most if not all should receive some prize.

And as far as going out solo that is fine as well as long as you get a decent photo with you and the fish/control item.

Man, I would go but my wife is working evening shift and I can't make it. Maybe if the kid hadn't come home sick from daycare today I could take him somewhere but I'm going to be busy as it is.

Good luck everyone.

I would really think about doing this but I am boatless until next week. I am a sucker when it comes to a good cause, catfishing and prizes.

Good luck to all that enter. smile

To be honest, I know that John and Brian both need a slumpbuster, and I didn’t want to catch it for them, so I secretly just tossed my line out and pretended to be fishing.

I was even nice enough to let them beat me at poker all night. You know I must be in a good mood when I do that, I take my poker seriously. smile

Even in doing that, Brian still had to find out he had a fish on only because we decided to move spots and he was forced to reel in.

I mean come on, fishing without bait AND letting you win at poker isn’t enough, now I have to reel it in for you?

Shack, there will be a base camp again this year, for those people that do not have a boat or just want to fish from shore with a larger group. It was a awesome time last year at base camp. Not as many fish as those who moved from spot to spot in a boat, but we still caught fish. If you are interested there will be a boat at Shakopee landing that will take people to and from base camp.

Thanks.

I am thinking you meant kids stuff?

We have not had any kids yet. I think there is a door prize or two that is for kids, though.
