      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 .

As I was heading home this morning on 19 driving down into the valley I got a good chuckle. Climbing out of the valley looked to be two weary warriors; as we passed the passenger of the vehicle looked to be out....classic pose of head back while sporting an open tea-kettle for a mouth.....they were towing a low-profile RP so I'm assuming they came from The Beast at the bottom of the valley. If the passenger wasnt out I apologize, if he was I'm impressed with his quick shutdown time!

Spring rush is probably coming to a close soon....hopefully some of you river rats catch up on your beauty sleep you ugly lot. laugh

laugh Amen to that!

As much as I would like to be out fishing tonight I needed to catch up on some chores. With a successful outing last night I don't mind too much taking the tonight off. Things can sure pile up when you've been spending lots of time down in the valley. But with the spawn right around the corner cant take too much time off. Perhaps I will hit the river late tonight and try a morning bite. wink

I too have probably been spending a little more time on the river than I should, but boy has it been fun. I also just caught my PB for the season last night which wasn't hugh but great to do battle with after all the 20 lb or less flatties. I am not going to be complaining though it has been fun and my boys are even getting in on the action a little more this year which just makes it that much more fun for me. Congrat to all of you that have been putting in your time and being rewarded, to everyone else your time will come just keep putting in your dues. later

I have been paying my dues recently, and I am still waiting for a payoff. Since Thursday, I have spent more hours in the boat, then out of the boat. The passengers in my boat have faired well, but I am still waiting. I have plans to take a night or two off to catch up on the family thing, then hit'er hard for the long weekend. Congrats to all the personal bests, its good to see all of the large fish being caught lately.

    • What a difference a week makes! Even far northern Wisconsin is finally making it to spring. With temperatures in the 50s and 60s, snow is melting quickly in the Northwoods, although it isn't gone yet and it may be awhile before its gone in the woods. Northern lakes still have up to 2 feet of ice and it's looking at this point that some lakes will still be iced over when the general fishing season opens on May 5. SLIDE SHOW | 6 photosWhat a difference a week makes!With all the snowmelt, waterfalls have come to life. Last Friday both Big and Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park were completely ice covered, but with warmer temperatures, they both came to life. People were eager to see the transformation with more than 385 vehicles visiting the park over the weekend to view the falls. Both Forks of the Flambeau are also open now and their falls are roaring.As things are drying out, we're also moving into the spring wildfire season. In the last week 60 wildfires burned 129 acres in DNR Protection Areas. Half of the fires were caused by debris burning. Stay aware of fire danger and burning restrictions by searching the DNR page for keyword fire. .
    • Very productive day all around! 
    • Smile says it all. Good job Dad!  
    • Yeah baby!!!  Huge congrats to both of you.  Look at that smile!  Great work dad and great work son!!!
    • On Saturday my boy got his first crack at a bird.  We walked in and had nothing close, but must have been in their way to whatever they were going to.  An hour later and he had his first turkey. 18.3 lb. 1/2 inch spurs 9 3/4 inch beard  HUGE smiles Proud dad   The bird gave us a heck of a show and came within a step of brushing the blind.   We also made it back to cook up Maple Syrup with the rest of the crew at thew cabin.
    • Well hopefully today is the last of the Fernando Rodney experiment.
