      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 .

The Not Quite Cats

Recommended Posts

Unfortunately, I live pretty far north in MN, so my cat fishing spots are all 45 minutes or more away, and then its 3-6 pound channels only... To get me by, I chase bullheads around home--these pics are from a couple weeks ago...jig and a crawler, light rods, lots of fun! If I were to head "south" (aka, metro area) to challenge some flats, are these the right size bullheads for bait?

I suggest cutting those bullies up and using them for cut bait if you haven't already thrown them out/cooked em'. Those are some large bullies!

Well, it would be a bit of a drive for you from Nashwauk... I live in Grand Rapids, but I grew up in--and mostly still fish around--Deer River. These were caught near the bridge at Cutfoot Sioux. I usually smoke the bigger ones and fry the littler ones. As far as cutbait, always cut off the "mud," or red back on these fish that connects to the skin, then use these fleshy skin pieces as cat bait.
