      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

He who Hesitates!

Recommended Posts

That age old cliche`, "he who hesitates" is oh so true! Especially so when there's an injured fish floating on the surface of the Red River in Lockport!

In the first scene an Osprey has spotted the little Fresh water Drum (AKA sheepshead) and begins to circle for an approach.


However the osprey isn't the only sharp eyed fish eater prowling the skies over the Red. This white pelican also spotted the tiny drum and instantly began its decent.


Without any hesiation the pelican sets her down with in a feet feet of the dying fish and quickly moves in for dinner.

A mere and effortless scoop with its massive yap and its "all she wrote"!



Tilt the head back and swallow! Nothing to it!!! wink


The young Great horned owl is left speechless at the pelicans display of "taking care of business"!


The smug look on mister pelicans mug says it all!

Great series, but I wanted to see the osprey and the pelican duke it out frown Oh well, that probably would have been too traumatic for the young gho. Seriously though, that must have been cool to witness and you did a nice job with the action.
