      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 .

Looks like the channel catfish are pretty much done with spawn, been catching a lot of them on the rivers Big River Mermac River and the Old Miss, Ive been using cut bait as well minows and small sunfish. Ive been running limb lines trot lines jug lines and a couple tight lines. Time to start to fill the freezer for the winter. Bass are also avail in the mourn and eve on small crank baits and spinner baits.

I hear ya loud and clear....the Miss nothing to mess around with!

Where do you do your catfishing? I was thinking about going out in front of the arch......but being a newbie to that area....I'm a little hesitant because of the initimidation factor.

Will do!

I'm tired of bowhunting in Texas...I know that. Believe none of what you see on tv about texas and deer. I'm stuck to public hunting...which is fine...have yet to shoot a deer going on year 7. It will happen this year...but then again that's what I've thought the previous 6 years. lol
