      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 .

Best trip yet...

Recommended Posts

Just back from three weeks in Canada and it was the best trip yet--fishing great, weather great, cabins and lakes were terrific. Started at Rainy Lake (Coppen's Resort)and once weather turned, on Thursday June 11, bass moved on to beds and we finished strong there. Top bass was 20", also got 7 in the 19-inch range, and a ton more over 18". Then my wife joined me and I flew into Grant Lake (Gateway North Outfitters)where the bass were also on bed, got a 20-incher first day, my wife got one 19 1/2 and we had great bass fishing. Next up, Pipestone (also Gateway)boat-in and the bass were still on bed. Tried not fishing beds, but didn't find much action away from the beds until the last day when I finally started getting some shallow and not on bed. But the fishing was simply spectacular in the areas where they were on bed. Finally, went to Kay Lake (Nestor Falls Outfitters)where bass fishing continued to be incredible and I finished up with some musky fishing and got a 36-incher. Can't say enough about the outfitters, I fished the spots they recommended and they were spot-on. Bout the only thing I could say that might be useful to others is that, at times, I did fish Gulp Alive leeches, right along side live leeches--and they worked just about as good. Saw lots of deer and beaver and it's a great change from South Florida...

Nice report. Heading up to Nestor Falls in a few days for a week of fishing. Fishing bass on beds is a bit controversial up North F.Y.I. I'm not going to try and lecture but just wanted to let you know. Anyways, thanks for the report kodiac!
