      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 .

Brr!! Long Johns on 30 June

Recommended Posts

Cool, breezy, cloudy and dark on the St Croix last night. The water temp was 82 degrees last Friday and a cool 69 last night. I was glad I put on my long johns before I left home.

I had hooks in the water at 1904 and had a fish in the boat at 1911. I had this jumbo bullhead that wanted out of the bait bucket in the worst way so I obliged him as my first offering of the night. That 3 oz No-Roll must have almost hit that flathead on the head when it settled to the bottom. He was on that bully pretty quick. I boated a small 30" flathead and got my bullhead back with him. The bullie was still full of fight so out he went again but nothing else for the rest of the night.

I quit fighting the wind as the 9th inning started and decided to call it a night. Twins beat KC 2-1 but it was kind of a boring game. Better weather on the way so I'll be out again tonight.

Wasn’t quite as chilly down in the river valley over here. Sweatshirt weather for sure though. We had water temp of 73 and couldn’t keep the 30” fish off our line.

At one point John had caught another 30”er and found a way to tangle it in my line. As I was holding my line in my hand trying to untangle it I can feel the line pumping and I was like, “uh John, can you hurry it up there, I’d like to catch this fish” laugh

Probably had the most action all year last night. It was fun.
