      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 .

Beautiful part of the world. Sorry I can't be much help but I have a good friend who moved there a few years back so he could fish and ski year round. He is catching salmon, lingcod, crabs or shrimp everyday.

He lives in Bellingham and fishes around the San Juan Islands.

Sorry, I know this is an older post. The Columbia River is terrific for walleye, especially up towards Umatilla (couple hours from Vancouver). You can get some really big ones around there, some closing in on 20 lbs.

Hey Magic,

So what did you usually fish for?

I am moving to just west of Portland in May from MN. I plan to bring my boat and would like to fish walleye and salmon if possible. I fish walleye a lot here in MN, but am just not sure how they fish out there say on the river. Any more tips or info would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Hey Michael - it was good to meet you on the plane to Portland on Friday. We did not do very well with the sturgeon with only 1 big fish caught but that's fishing I guess. Maybe we'll see you on the plane again.
