      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 .

what to expect

Recommended Posts

Heading up to Red Dot, Mooserun/Moosewalk trails in a couple weeks. Wondering what to expect for trails? Similar to any others in the state such as Nemadji, or Akeley, Spider Lake? We are looking forward to checking them out. We are heading there instead of our usual trip to the Akeley area.

Trails are scenic near the lake. Not much for challenge but the scenery is really nice, especially on the Red Dot where you can see Superior from the overlooks. Sometimes there are a few puddles to splash around in but not much. There is also one really nice spot on the Moose that overlooks a huge valley. This one has about a 200 foot vertical drop just beyond the shelter. Nice place to stop for lunch.

I'll add if you have a pack rod, bean lake is along the trail and has some trout in it.

And there's lots of places to take pics along the way like these.

After seeing those views I just hope I don't get distracted and drive off the side.

Thanks for the responses they help put my mind at ease over choice of riding area.

Don't forget your camera! Trust me this is a beautiful area to ride, not to mention the people of the Silver Bay area have always been friendly and helpful to me!
