      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 Big Pond

Recommended Posts

Anyone been out on the Big Pond yet this year? Going to head out there in a couple of weeks. Haven't been hearing much so far this year, but going to give it a shot and see if there are some fish that want to come out and play!

Brett - My father and I made it up there today with not a whole lot of action for the time we spent out there. One strike on the north end in the morning and one follow in the afternoon in wahkon. The weather didn't help much, sunny and flat calm in the morning and slight breeze later.

I did have a follow on a suick from a nice walleye and a loon that was circling us for 10 minutes. Must have been looking for handouts.

Nater - Thanks for the update!

Propster - Once again Operation Muskie was a great time had by all. Although the weather wasn't the greatest the first couple of days, the vets managed to catch a few fish and see a few more. Largest fish caught was a nice 49 incher by John Kriesel, while trolling with Doug Johnson. Some of you may know John from the news stories that ran on him. He lost both of his legs in Iraq, but doesn't let that stop him. In total, I think 21 muskies were boated, but even better than that, there were a lot of smiles and friendships made!

Pretty slow right now, but I did manage a couple fish over the weekend, local spots are jammed with people, look outside of those areas and you should move some fish!
