      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 .

I actually have a fishing report!!

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! I went fishing both Saturday and Sunday! I almost got skunked on Saturday though. I did end up with one perch. Jim did very well with 5 walleyes with 2 being 27". It was super windy and I had problems with bite detection. frown

Today was a little slower but it was a beautiful day to be on the water. We could only spend a couple of hours out there though. I caught the only walleye (22"). It was one of those great zinger bites when it pulls the line right off your finger and then takes a fast run. Very fun! We had a ton of loons all around us and a couple eagles too.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY Jackie!!! Hope your day's been awesome too!

It was great Jackie! It's a little bittersweet to be up at the cabin now though! We just put it on the market and have had a couple look at it already. It's all painted up, constantly clean and now we aren't enjoying it like we should.

You got out fishing whoo hooo. I wish I would have this weekend but I needed a bum weekend. I did wash the car today. It was full of sap from being parked under trees last weekend.

Hope

I am so glad you finally got out. I don't know how you managed to fish on Saturday, brutal winds again. I did the Deer River Parade yesterday, so proud of myself walked the whole route. Then I sat by the stage waiting to see Doug Kershaw, stiffened up. Had to keep getting up to move around. I first saw the "Ragin Cajun" at the taste of Minnesota and it must have been 25 years ago, man is he old! Man, am I old!!!

It was good to get back on the water and leave it all behind for a couple days.

Barb, good to hear you had a good time at the Wild Rice Days. We've only gone once many years ago so my boy could go on the rides. It's a pretty big deal up there!

Glenn, I am positive we'll still fish up there. We'll just have to camp which sounds pretty fun too!

I'm actually pretty jealous of Hope since her whole family seems to own/maintain a family cabin. That sounds awesome!

Sandmann, again, congrats on adopting that daughter of yours.

Howdy Hi Sue, it's always great to have another female voice on the forum. We are vastly outnumbered here and can use all the help we can get.
