      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 IGFA world record for White Crappie is 5lb 3oz, Black Crappie is 5lb.

For records that stand at less than 25lbs the fish needs to be at least 2 ounces larger to defeat the record.

Man, I would be bummed if I caught one 1 oz larger than the record and it didn't get the recognition frown

It would get recognized as a tie.

Just wondering if maybe the state of MN and IGFA's requirements for being a record are different?

If you submit to the state of MN for a record, does IGFA automatically recognize that entry or is it a separate submittal? Do you need to submit to both entities if you have a fish that would qualify for both?

I really don't know but can understand where there could be a disparity.

Yes, you need to submit to the IGFA separately from the MN DNR. From everything that I have read about the IGFA I'm not really a fan of the program. The Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame does recognize record holders from the IGFA, but the IGFA does not from the FFHF. The FFHF will recognize state DNR record holders depending on the state if they have a relatively rigorous way to verify the fish.
